One can only wonder how much longer Jesus will wait before unleashing full wrath and judgment on those who continue to blaspheme His name. I wish I could say that I was surprised by such an absurd assertion, but clearly, with the history of The Gospel Coalition and its many LGBTQ activists it continues to platform, nothing is surprising anymore.
Ed Shaw is one of the partners at Living Out — a ministry which was founded by Sam Allberry, an admittedly gay Anglican priest — who was exposed for his implicit and explicit promotion of unbiblical sexual ideology. Shaw’s statements and ideas were so gross that even Sam Allberry himself attempted to distance himself from him after it was exposed. Yet, despite Shaw’s continued promotion of LGBTQ activism, The Gospel Coalition continues to platform him as though he has anything to offer in the way of Church edification.
Recently, Reformation Charlotte reported that Ed Shaw told parents that God uses homosexuality and transgenderism to make them more like Christ, therefore, they shouldn’t be concerned about it. In another podcast, Ed Shaw explains to his host that he doesn’t need to repent of his same-sex attractions to men because he’s been “wired to appreciate” the beauty in other men as they walk past him in the streets.
Ed Shaw, as a member of the LGBTQ-Transgenderism blasphemy community, heavily promotes the idea that Jesus understands the struggles of transgender people because Jesus, himself, suffered from body dysphoria. In an article at The Gospel Coalition, he says,
I’m wanting the young people who come to this event to know that Jesus is the one person that they can fully trust with their sexualities, identities and gender because he is both their Creator God and a human being who knows what it is like to grapple with a sexuality, identity and gender. Teenagers today are being presented with such a confusing range of options that they especially need the tender care that Jesus offers all of us as we struggle with what it means to be a human being.
Ed Shaw’s resources on sexuality are also heavily promoted by David Platt on his church’s website.
