Just Sex?

Guy Brandon, June 2008

Price: FREE

Who are we to tell others what they should feel, or how they should act on those feelings? What consenting adults do in private is none of anyone else’s business. As Woody Allen observed when he married his former girlfriend’s adopted daughter, ‘the heart wants what the heart wants.’

No one else's business? photograph

No one else's business?

Guy Brandon, December 2007

Price: FREE

This article unpacks the concept of consent with regard to sexual relationships and offers, perhaps surprisingly, a relational critique of the prevailing notion that what takes place between consenting adults is a private matter that is of no wider concern.

Towards an understanding of Jesus

Christopher Pain, July 2007

Price: FREE

In this pioneering report by Chris Pain, he argues that given Jesus teaching about the priority of relationships, we have much to gain from studying how Jesus conducted his own relationships. In addition, this paper makes initial suggestions as to the method by which the gospel accounts can be studied so as to open up more fully their relational insights.

Intimacy without Eros

Guy Brandon, March 2007

Price: FREE

In the last few decades, changing attitudes have badly distorted our concept of relationship. One major cause is the sexual revolution, which has brought sex out of the bedroom and onto billboards and TV screens and into almost every arena of life.

Sex and violence in Genesis photograph

Sex and violence in Genesis

Gordon Wenham, September 2006

Price: FREE

Readers of Genesis will quickly come across a variety of episodes that seem to be marked by irregular sexual behaviour. I say seem to be irregular, because what we really need to establish is whether these actions contravene biblical law on the one hand or the ethics of the narrator on the other. We must endeavour to avoid reading into the text our own prejudices, and let it speak for itself. In this article we look briefly at how the narrator portrays bigamy, adultery, premarital sex, surrogate marriage, homosexual practice and incest.

Consent versus Community: What Basis for Sexual Offences? photograph

Consent versus Community: What Basis for Sexual Offences?

Jonathan Burnside, August 2006

Price: FREE

In this major new report from the Jubilee Centre a new and powerful line of critique of contemporary sexual ethics is opened, one the Jubilee Centre is continuing to research. Our contention is that the morality of a decision regarding sexual practice can only adequately be judged when the interests of third parties are taken into account. To put it another way, debate should be focused around a positive concern for the communities we seek to protect. What about the toll upon ones spouse, children, extended family, friends or colleagues some or all of whom will be affected by decisions consenting adults take? A serious concern to build community requires a new, less individualistic basis for sexual offences. This thorough and insightful study of sexual offences in biblical law (Leviticus 20 in particular), opens a new, and surprisingly fruitful, way forward.

Pastoral care for homosexuality

Mario Bergner, March 2006

Price: FREE

Our most commonly asked question at Redeemed Life Ministries is 'How can I help someone who is struggling with homosexuality?' My first response is to ask a few questions: 'Is the person struggling a Christian? Has he or she been baptized, regenerated and converted in Jesus Christ?'
