You may have read in recent days about the lesbian from Campus Crusade who has been teaching a pro-homosexual message to children in CRU as well as being platformed by The Gospel Coalition. Rachel Gilson, who works for CRU as a Director of Theological Development Northeast, said in a recently uncovered video that, even in the context of “gay marriage” God hates divorce, and said that it’s okay for gay couples, after they come to Christ, to remain legally married so long as they remain celibate. If that isn’t an affirmation of gay marriage, I’m not exactly sure what is, but Gilson has a long history of teaching heresy when it comes to the theological perspective on sexuality.

My first article on Gilson a few days ago was in reference to Gilson’s public statement to a group of students at a CRU conference where she stated that “there is no command in Scripture to be straight.” As biblically nonsensical of a statement as that is, TGC types, like Joe Carter, rushed to her defense, insisting that she held to an orthodox Christian view of sexuality.

Well, guess what, she doesn’t.

In an article penned at Desiring God — the ministry of one of Big Eva’s favorites, John Piper — Gilson clearly teaches that gender is independent of biological sex. She writes,

How do you know you are a woman or a man?

Perhaps you would simply say, “Because of my body.” After all, the physical differences between males and females are not difficult to spot. This objective, physical reality is what the word sex describes.

Yet many of us concede that we also feel like a man or a woman. How do we describe this feeling? Surely it doesn’t have to mean full alignment with the qualities our culture often assigns to men and women.Though transgender is an umbrella term for many experiences, at its most basic, it describes people whose internal, subjective sense of gender or identity doesn’t match the objective sex they were born into.

. . .

The ways we live out our given sex in the world is commonly known as gender. Gender can be manifested in how we dress, the hobbies we have, the roles we play. We fall all along the spectrum of how closely we align to various (and changing) cultural gender expectations and expressions. This is normal.

Teaching that gender is independent of biological sex is the exact opposite of a biblical worldview on sexuality. Gender is not fluid. Gender is sex. The Bible tells men to act like men (1 Corinthians 16:13). Why? Because your gender is your sex — you don’t get to choose how you want to act based on how you feel. It’s nonsense.

Reality check: these are the kind of people who are being platformed by The Gospel Coalition, The Southern Baptist Convention, and mainstream evangelicalism. The institutions that Al Mohler and Danny Akin insist aren’t sliding to the liberal left. One of two things is happening here. Either all of these supposedly conservative evangelicals are being duped by these radical feminists and LGBTQ activists — or, more likely, they’re all on board with it.
