A group of evangelical Christian leaders signed and issued a statement that affirms what they believe to be the biblical view on sex, gender, and marriage. There has been a tremendous backlash in the mainstream and social media world against the so-called Nashville Statement. From the now-standard accusations of bigotry and hatred to the issuing of counter-statements, opinions are raging from both the inside and the outside of the church walls. Andy, Steve, and Terry bring their opinions to the table, too, in this week's episode of the AC Podcast.
For context, we encourage you to read the Nashville Statement before you listen to this episode.
