Warhorn Media is in the final stages of the editing, design, and typesetting of our next book titled, The Grace of Shame: 7 Ways the Church Has Failed To Love Homosexuals. Co-authored by son Joseph Bayly and our dear friend and fellow pastor Jürgen von Hagen, we’re excited about this book getting released in a month or so.
The book’s theme is that our sexuality is a station in life assigned by God at the moment of conception, and thus Christian holiness is bound up with living and loving the sex God made us. Gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transsexuals are not the only ones who want to rebel against the man or woman God made them. To varying degrees, each of us wishes to shirk our male or female duties. At some level, each woman wants to be hard and each man soft in a way that denies the person God made us.
Some women may not have any desire to lie with another woman, yet they rule their husband.
Some men may not have any desire to lie with another man, yet the magnet on their refrigerator reads, “the rooster rules the roost and the hen rules the rooster.”
Sex is more—much, much more—than physical intercourse. Sex is a calling given us by God at the moment of conception, and there are many ways to live homosexually without copulating homosexually. This is why the Apostle Paul warns us, “Do not be deceived; neither…effeminate, nor homosexuals… will inherit the kingdom of God” (1 Corinthians 6:9, 10).
The denial of Scripture’s distinction between effeminate men and those men who lie with males is the deception at the heart of the “gay Christian” or “homosexual orientation” movement of LivingOut.org.
It’s not enough to keep the outside of our cup clean by avoiding homosexual intercourse. We must keep the inside of the cup clean, also, by avoiding effeminacy. Gay loving and gay living are a matched pair of sins.
