At one of my recent speaking events I had a great discussion with a student on the Biblical texts dealing with homosexuality. He had read that the verses condemning homosexuality were actually only condemning it in certain situations. His readings suggested that the Bible was not condemning monogamous, loving, same-sex relationships. This position would be one way of interpreting Scripture called the revisionist view. On the other hand, the traditional view states that Scripture condemns all forms of homosexual behavior. So, is what he read true? Have Christians traditionally misunderstood the verses surrounding homosexuality? Should we hold to the revisionist view?

Watch this video to see Christopher Yuan carefully examine the common verses dealing with homosexuality, and then explain the two different ways of interpretation.
