Kevin DeYoung Ç 9 SUMMARY SUMMARY ↠ What Does the Bible Really Teach about Homosexuality? Rding the issue of homosexualityAfter examining key biblical passages in both the Old and New Testaments and the Bible's overarching teaching regarding sexuality DeYoung res. What Does the Bible Really Teach about Homosexuality is a misnomer This book has very little to do with what the Bible teaches about anything Instead it s a platform book with a specific political agenda campaigning against homosexual marriage Based on the title and back cover copy which promises an examination of the Bible s overarching teaching regarding sexuality I expected this book to go into some of the realities and myths of sexuality and how it changed and stayed the same throughout Biblical times I had hopes that the author would address Mosaic Law about homosexuality which he does but practically in passing but also address issues with concubines male and female and polygamy church acceptance of other Old Testament sins such as tattoos remarriage divorce this last one was addressed but only in passing and with no real argument and maybe even a discussion of the theories that certain characters such as David and Paul were gay or bisexual and the implication of all this on modern Christianity just to name a few Instead what I got was a political book thinly disguised as a religious book And it wasn t even well argued This book would serve its best use in a class on logical fallacies since it violates almost all of them Just a few examples1 It includes myriad unsupported and aggrandized claims DeYoung s work is fraught with false appeals to popularity such as claims that his beliefs are Along with most Christians around the globe and virtually every Christian in the first nineteen and a half centuries of church history p 17 and claims that Everyone agrees p 34 2 DeYoung sets up a false dichotomy setting up the conservative historic nonaffirming and traditional stance versus the progressive liberal affirming and revisionist stance p 20 This false dichotomy ignores the myriad other positions out there held by Christians Further it corrupts the two different positions well the two the author allows into political speech suggesting without argument or support that a conservative reader must believe the conservative position and likewise that the evil liberal must believe the liberal position The problems with labeling arguments traditional and revisionist are inherent in the labels From the language he uses DeYoung clearly has no intention of giving any credibility to any opinion not his own This book isn t about discussion or examination it s about indoctrination 3 DeYoung argues that the primary purpose of marriage is reproduction p 28 This facile argument is not supported by any verses nor any real argument Further it apparently means that people who are incapable of reproduction eg straight couples who are infertile the elderly those with injuries cancers or other illnesses to their reproductive organs that prevent reproduction etc 4 Perhaps the worst offender is this sentence from page 31 monogamy makes sense and same sex marriage does not This is a false comparison It suggests that all straight couples are monogamous which any review of divorce petitions will clearly demonstrate is false and that gay couples are incapable of monogamy which is also a flawed assertion with no valid data or logic for support I could go on and on as almost every page is stuffed with logical fallacies unsupported arguments and facile or contradictory arguments In short it is the single worst book I ve ever read that makes an argument on any topic
