Matt Barber writes at Barbwire:
WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group is planning to release, through its liberal imprint Convergent Books, a manuscript titled God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships.
Is the Christian world about to suffer through another World Vision moment?
The book’s author, Matthew Vines is a homosexual activist and Bible revisionist known for manipulating Christian terminology to advance the counter-Christian homosexualist agenda.
Despite his frequent use of a Christian-like lexicon, Vines surprisingly admits to running an apostate enterprise that he calls The Reformation Project.
"An unabashed denier of Biblical teaching on sexual morality, Vines has publicly acknowledged that his goal is to 'reform church teaching on sexual orientation and gender identity'," Barber writes. "The book is scheduled to be published on April 22, 2014."
If I may, here is another title Multnomah might consider publishing: God and Atheism: The Biblical Case in Support of the Non-Existence of Yahweh.
There is no doubt a twenty-something author out there willing to assert that when the Bible says, "The fool says in his heart, 'There is no God'" (Psalm 14:1), what is being given is culturally conditioned by ancient thought-forms in a temporal milieu shaped by the struggle for human liberation and survival against a plethora of gods and goddesses evoked by privileged elites of wealth and power.
Further study of the living text reveals what it actually means is: "The wise man says in his heart, 'There is no God.'"
Thus is achieved a "third way" of church reformation that transcends old dichotomies of existence and non-existence. Thus, the Bible liberates human beings from all idolatry! How cool and affirming is that! I mean, how can there be idolatry is there are no gods whatsoever?
O the joy that "honors scripture" and "those who are different." And O the wonder of being released from the shadows of idolatry!
On the other hand, April 22, 2014, may go down in Multnomah history as the date marking the decline and fall of a once-trusted Christian publisher. Time, and the choices people make in the next days and weeks, will tell. Meanwhile, intelligence revolts.
