Two-day conference ‘will equip you to explain why God’s design for sexuality is the only good design’
Take Action: sign up HERE for the “Two Loves: Biblical Response to ‘Gay Christianity'” conference beginning this Friday (Oct. 7-9, 2016), in Escondido, CA. If you cannot attend, send a gift to help TruthXChange, a wonderful Christian organization, or order one of Peter Jones’ books or his worldview curriculum. More info at TruthXChange.com.
Folks, I just can’t say enough good things about Dr. Peter Jones and his annual TruthXChange conferences–which combine intellectual rigor with a fearless commitment to upholding biblical truth — of the sort that is increasingly lacking in evangelical circles (at least on the homosexual issue). I wish I could attend this conference beginning Friday and hosted by New Life Presbyterian Church in Escondido, California.
Among the speakers are: Dr. Mike Brown, whose presentation alone would make attending worthwhile; my friend Stephen Black, who overcame homosexuality in his own life and who is one of the most godly and committed Christian men I’ve ever met; and ex-lesbian former professor Rosaria Butterfield.
Dr. Jones himself is a national treasure and one of the reasons I do NOT support shutting down immigration (he came here from the U.K.: Britain’s loss, America’s gain!). Peter writes ably and prolifically about the pagan roots of what the Left considers “enlightened” and “progressive” LGBTQueer sex- and gender ideology.
If you’re looking for simplistic and shallow analyses of America’s moral and spiritual crisis and the worldly descent of Christianity in the West, don’t attend this conference or follow Peter’s work. But if you are a truth-lover who fears God, not man, and wants to learn about how our once-Christian culture degenerated to this point, this is an event for you. Having attended one of Peter’s conferences a few years ago, I can assure you that you will be blessed by this gathering of Christian thinkers. –Peter LaBarbera, AFTAH.org; @PeterLaBarbera

Two Loves: Biblical Response to ‘Gay Christianity’
What the Bible tells us about God’s design is true, and it is beautiful. Sexuality as he created it is especially wondrous because through it he tells us something of his own love, beauty and person. We cannot effectively love our neighbors in this goodness and truth, nor can we speak clearly the Gospel of God’s love if we affirm any sexuality that strays from it.
Without political rhetoric, gay-bashing or moralistic coercion, this two-day conference will equip you to explain why God’s design for sexuality is the only good design.
Gay Christianity is such a hot topic that many, including pastors, simply choose silence. In fact, while this issue may seem to be our biggest obstacle to explaining the Gospel, it can also be our biggest opportunity—we dare not miss this chance.
Facing a mounting cultural pressure to conform, Christians often receive accusations of bigotry and hate. The Bible offers us a positive, life-giving message of salvation, expressed, in particular, in a life of God-honoring heterosexuality.
In view of the growing influence of “Gay Christianity” in our churches, do you feel able to speak about your beliefs to the people God has placed in your life? truthXchange can help. Join us at our Oct 7-9, 2016 conference, where you will learn two basic truths to help you speak to the heart of gender and sexuality issues.
First, the conference will deepen your understanding of why the collapse of our culture into pagan (Oneist) thinking leads naturally to the practice and theory of homosexuality. We will not deal with questions of politics, psychology or “gay” rights; nor will we offer a moralistic and defensive anti-homosexual stance. At their core level, gender and sexual issues are theological questions.
Second, the conference will equip you to articulate the Bible’s holistic (Twoist) worldview: how God made the world distinct from himself and how the world witnesses to his Trinitarian character. On this basis, we will examine the beautiful and comprehensive calling of biblical wisdom and holiness.
