Lesbian Feminist Receives The Gospel Coalition’s 2019 Book Award for Evangelism and Apologetics

If you think it’s an exaggeration to say that The Gospel Coalition (TGC) has embraced a new religion of homosexual acceptance and inclusion, think again. The Gospel Coalition has been on a leftward drift since its inception — in fact, the entire purpose of TGC was to slowly move the Church toward a progressive agenda that accepts and embraces liberal politics, social justice, feminism, and LGBTQ rights.

And it has worked. Ten years ago, the Evangelical Church would look at today’s promotion of homosexual authors and speakers and outright reject it. Today, however, it’s a different story and few Evangelicals will even bat an eye. TGC has been relentlessly promoting homosexuals — from Sam Allberry and Ed Shaw who teach that Jesus, like transgenders, “struggled with his identity” to even some of the worst gay activists from Revoice. One TGC author employs a gay rights activist as his personal assistant at the church he pastors — nobody cares. And TGC’s leading LGBTQ consultant teaches that homosexuality isn’t a sin.

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore. This reduces our traffic and causes us to move more of our work exclusively to Substack.

Confronting Christianity, Rebecca McLaughlin

Another prominent LGBTQ activist that TGC relentlessly promotes is Rebecca McLaughlin. McLaughlin, herself, openly admits that she is romantically attracted to other women. During this presentation at The Gospel Coalition, she states,

“I’ve been romantically attracted to women since childhood, and if I were not a Christian I’d likely be married to a woman, not a man.”

Now, many of you might say “well, since she’s not acting on her attraction, she isn’t a lesbian. But that notion is far from biblical and it is a rejection of the power of the Holy Spirit to change one’s evil desires. Like most in the “SSA Christian” movement, they have redefined homosexuality to only apply to those who physically act upon it. Per her own words, she still desires women romantically.

McLaughlin isn’t just an LGBTQ activist, she’s also a feminist who treats the Scriptures as a manifesto for Liberation Theology, feminism, and intersectionality. Of course, some have argued that she “describes herself as a complementarian,” and that’s good enough. Let us remind you that Beth Moore describes herself as a complementarian, too. It clearly isn’t true. Let’s look at what she teaches, instead.

Her book, Confronting Christianity: 12 Hard Questions for the World’s Largest Religion, which won the 2019 TGC award for Apologetics and Evangelism, is nothing more than a proclamation of her twisted theological views which turn Jesus’ death into an act of social justice.

Earlier this year, the Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) published an excerpt from her book where she tries to prove through a made-up hermeneutic she calls a “male-and-female thread” that who Jesus chooses to heal during his time on Earth proves that he “values women.” Of course, nobody in the history of orthodox biblical Christianity has ever argued that Jesus didn’t value women — but McLaughlin’s entire platform depends on the false narrative that Christians — particularly complementarians — treat women like dirt.

So while The Gospel Coalition is relentlessly promoting materials by lesbians, feminists, and social justice warriors, they are ignoring the works by biblically-minded pastors and authors who are actually contributing something to the faith. Of course, the garbage that comes out of the mouths of people like McLaughlin is exactly what the world loves to hear — so it’s exactly what TGC will continue to offer.
