Priscilla Smith writes the following concerning Grove City College student David Bier’s letter accusing AFTAH of misleading people “into the belief that God disapproves of homosexuality”:
I think Mr. Bier’s e-mail ought to come to the attention of Grove City College Board and executives, for three reasons:
- They are about to graduate a young man from their so-called Christian institution without teaching him that God not only disapproves of homosexuality, but He describes it as an abomination, unnatural, dishonorable, perversion, depravity. (What is the school’s position? What are they allowing professors to teach?) Not only is this young man either ignorant or defiant of Biblical truth, he is actually deluded into believing that those who embrace homosexuality are moral, while those who hold to the Biblical position (“homosexuality is sin”) are immoral. Isaiah 5:20 — “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil” — comes to mind;
- Apparently, Throckmorton’s deceit has permeated the campus to some degree. How many GCC students are under the misapprehension that God approves of homosexuality, bisexuality, and transsexuality? (Wow, I guess only us heterosexuals are called to abstinence, sexual purity, marital fidelity?);
- This college senior cannot write a sensible paragraph. “Your unsolicited attack”? I would characterize what [Americans For Truth writes] as “exposing Throckmorton’s counseling philosophy as unbiblical” — not sure how that qualifies as “an attack.” And does Mr. Bier think that you are supposed to wait until you’re invited to comment on Throckmorton’s counseling philosophy? In that case, his own e-mail [to AFTAH] is an “unsolicited attack,” isn’t it?
Most importantly: Please advise Mr. Bier that Jesus Christ does not “accept others as they are.” The first recorded words of His public ministry were: “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
