Bethlehem Baptist Church and Homosexuality
By Alexander Samuels
In light of Mickey's earlier post, "Methodist Minister in Virginia Suspended," I thought it would be appropriate to share a Biblical position on homosexuality that one church has taken. Bethlehem Baptist Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota, pastored by John Piper, adopted a . . . position statement on homosexuality in 1992, which was drafted by Piper and Joe Hallet, who, as Piper shares, "came out of the homosexual life by the power of Christ and lived faithfully with AIDS, and eventually with his wife, until his death in 1997." (To read Hallet's testimony, click here.) In order to have a better understanding of a Biblical perspective on this issue, I strongly encourage you to click on this link and read the entire statement.
