This book is presented as a fusion of two books by Dr Peet Botha: The Bible and Homosex – Sexual Truths for a Modern Society and The Empty Testament – Four Arguments Against Gay Theology. In Part One, Theological Hermeneutics and Exegesis, chapter one to eight the Bible is explored hermeneutically and exegetically for its views on homosexuality. In Part Two, Changing Theology, The contemporary situation with reference to the same-sex controversy is highlighted. We need to take note of the role-players in the debate as well as the agenda informing their efforts. Same-sex marriage will impact four very specific theologies and in chapter nine the changes brought about and envisaged for the theology of sexuality is discussed. There is a concerted effort to change the church’s attitude towards homosex; it is in actual fact an effort to change the traditional definition of sexual sin. In chapter ten the impact of same-sex marriage on the theology of sin will be considered at length. An in-depth look at same-sex marriage and the implications thereof for heterosexual marriage follows in chapter eleven whilst the logical effects on the traditional family will be discussed in chapter twelve. Part Three, Frequently Asked Questions answers 14 frequently asked questions.
