A Baptist church that was ousted from the Texas Baptist Association in 2016 for its pro-sodomy stance will begin a new teaching series on exploring “perspectives and hang-ups about sex, relationships, and finding a better way forward.”

Jared Slack, a pastor at First Baptist Church of Austin is holding a six-week series on a book called See Me Naked. The book promotes a sexually deviant lifestyle which it teaches that “dogmatic” rules about sexual ethics in the church can cause harm to one’s identity.

The description on Amazon reads,

Recounting with care and nuance the life histories of nine American Protestants, Frykholm shows us the harm done by the rules-based sexual ethic now dominant, which alternately denies and romanticizes sexuality. But she also points to how American Christians might otherwise access their spiritual tradition to heal the divide between religion and sexuality. One story examines the intricate relationship between a man’s religious faith and his sexual addiction. In another, a man defines religion as a wall that kept him from the discovery that he was gay. One young woman uses sex to defy her devout parents, while another seeks to transcend her body by going without food. Nearly everyone interviewed in See Me Naked remains a Christian, with some further on their journey than others.

With more and more churches succumbing to the sexual revolution in our culture, true believers will become all the more despised–even by many of those who profess Christ. The fact is, sexual immorality and Christianity cannot co-exist. Paul is very clear when he stated, “Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)”
