Sex, orientation and theological debate

Abstract

This is a paper written by Noel Moules for the 'Body & Soul' weekend which takes place in London on 27-28 March 2010, run by Ekklesia partner Workshop (http://www.workshop.org.uk). The document explores Christian approaches to sexuality and sexual orientation, as well as looking at how appropriately to handle the theological tradition and biblical texts which relate to the debate. The author spent his formative years in India and has studied (and taught) theology and education. Through Workshop, which is open and evangelical in its grounding, with a particular concern for Anabaptist and peace church perspectives, "learners and teachers work to discover God amid uncertainty, mystery and paradox. We are sensitive to the differences between the various traditions of the church, and aim to increase understanding about the reasons behind the sincerely held opposing views."
