Solving Biblical Mysteries #39 from William C. Kiefert

Dear friends:

Homophobia is the product of a grave misinterpretation of Paul’s letter to the Romans (1:27). That mistake cannot be recognized from the Judaic-Christian worldview. To understand this mistake, Romans 1:27 must be understood in Paul’s worldview; i.e. that of a Gnostic Christian.

Please consider reading “Does the Bible Condemn Homosexuality?” below, which comes from the Solving Biblical Mysteries section of my book, “The Practical Side of Heaven.” I believe reading this can open the door to the correct interpretation of Romans 1:27, which, in turn, eliminates the “cause” of homophobia.

Your thoughts on this will be greatly appreciated.

Sincerely,
William C. Kiefert
