In the last 10-20 years or so, the United States has undergone a dramatic paradigm shift in how homosexuality is perceived. We have traveled the path from shameful to accepting, from accepting to affirming, and now from affirming to embracing. As homosexuality and its acceptance has become more mainstream in our society, the Bible and its clear teaching on the matter has come under much greater attack. New lines of reasoning are being postulated in defense of these “alternative” lifestyles. The battle lines are drawn around the validity and viability of the Word of God, and we must be ready to give a defense against these onslaughts.
