The Latest Bakker Scandal

 

jay_bakker_small1.jpg“It sounds so churchy, but I felt like God spoke to my heart and said ‘[homosexuality] is not a sin.'”

–Jay Bakker, son of disgraced televangelists Jim & Tammy Faye Bakker, and co-founder of “Revolution Church” as quoted in Punk Pastor Preaches Tolerance, Compassion,

Spiritual hubris? Yes. A new “truth”? Sorry, Jay. Thankfully, we have a bit more reliable divine revelation and church tradition upon which to base our moral beliefs than the young Bakker’s alleged private revelation, which would cause us to re-write the Bible. We recommend to Jay Bakker and to everyone the excellent website of Rob Gagnon (www.robgagnon.net), author of The Bible and Homosexual Practice, for a bit more thorough analysis of God’s attitude toward homosexual sin. More on this latest Bakker scandal later. — Peter LaBarbera
