Alicia Johnston: Creation, Gender and the Sabbath

Alicia's book, The Bible and LGBTQ Adventists makes a huge claim;

"Full affirmation of same-sex marriage and transgender identity is the most biblical approach. It’s not biblical to oppose same-sex marriage or transgender identity. Though well-intentioned, the institutional church has gotten this question completely wrong."

In this episode Dan and Jo directly address this claim. Together with Alicia, they explore the beginning of the bible and what it says about gender diversity and non heterosexual relationships. Join us as we explore the non-binary nature of creation.

The Kickstarter campaign for Alicia’s book The Bible and LGBTQ Adventists is live now. Please support this awesome project via the following link: http://kck.st/3zCOror

Born and raised in the church, Jo never expected to find himself being pushed out by it. While Jo’s journey of self acceptance and a search for belonging has been challenging, it led him to find a loving God who was far greater than the sum of his painful experiences and hurt and a return to the church of his childhood. He hopes that all will be able to experience, as he has, a love that not only transforms them but also changes the way they see others.
