We first became aware of retired Episcopal Bishop John Shelby Spong with the introduction of his book “Living in Sin?: A Bishop Rethinks Human Sexuality” (HarperOne , 1990), his signature attempt at dismantling traditional beliefs on sexuality and offering readers freedom from “literal imprisonment.”
Not unlike John Boswell, Bishop Spong’s heretical (and we do not use that loosely) teachings have had a great deal of influence on the gay christian movement and its developed sexual liberation theology.
Here, Dr. James White of Alpha and Omega Ministry attempts to debate with Bishop Spong with little success at coherency. Spong speaks in circles and in general behaves as if he just awoke yesterday and discovered that there are people who believe differently than he. Question for sharp minds: (1) How many false beliefs can you count coming out of Bishop Spong’s mouth and (2) how many gcm religious cliches does the Bishop repeat?
Bishop Spong’s wide lens heresy here.
Bishop Spong’s “12 Theses”
Probe Ministries: Spong sounds more Freudian than a Christian.
