The Revoice Conference is a coalition of gay “Christians” who collude annually to prop up their status as outspoken homosexuals and promote the gay agenda of full acceptance and inclusion in the ranks of churches in America. Led by gay activists such as Nate Collins and Preston Sprinkle, the Conference promotes an identity of “gay” while committing to a life of non-penetratory “celibacy.” After all, other forms of same-sex intimacy are acceptable within the movement.

After much backlash, the Conference, which as been hosted at Presbyterian (PCA) churches, has been denounced by the denomination. In a 16-page essay, the Central Carolina Presbytery, with notable members such as Kevin DeYoung, Bill Barclay, and Blair Smith, decried the Conference as not having been “careful enough with their labels, their theology, and their relational advice.”

“Because the event was hosted by one of its member churches, featured a speaker from one of its congregations, and included involvement from its denominational seminary, Revoice has been especially controversial in the Presbyterian Church in America,” the essay reads, “As a denomination, we take seriously Paul’s injunction to keep a close watch on our life and doctrine.”

Referencing Matthew Lee Anderson, one of the conference speakers and organizers, the essay says that his message “is an attempt to place Christian sexual desire within the broader category of desire itself.

For Anderson, gay Christians can sanctify illicit sexual desires while at the same time redeeming—through friendship and an “aesthetic vision”—the “licit aspects of being gay.”

It’s great that the presbytery has taken a stand against this homosexual invasion, however, another group that’s not far behind in the same agenda is the ministry, Living Out. Living Out, led by Sam Allberry is an author at The Gospel Coalition and a regular speaker in Evangelical, (Presbyterian and Southern Baptist) circles. To this day, The Gospel Coalition has yet to denounce the actions and agenda of Living Out — even after much of the same ideology had been widely exposed.

The essay concludes,

Consequently, at present we do not feel Revoice is a safe guide in helping Christians navigate questions of gender and sexuality. We hope that within the PCA more attention will be given to the theology expressed in our Standards and to the doctrinal precision exemplified in the best of our tradition.
