firstthings.com Article – Temple Prostitution: A Modest Proposal

January 26, 2010

Because of the Lutheran Church accepting Homosexuality as a form of normal behavior, Peter Speckhard wrote a good article illustrating the ridiculousness of combining sinful practice with the holy institution of marriage and church.

Excerpt: …I understand we’re all in different places on this. This needn’t be church-dividing. We can live together with diverse views on this. Some traditionalists may not be comfortable having temple prostitutes in church. They don’t necessarily hate prostitutes; they might just need time. They don’t have to offer it themselves; besides, what seems crazy at first might, with several years of repetition and refining, become perfectly acceptable. Must those of us who are in favor of it be written out of the body of Christ? Some of us are ready now. I certainly don’t insist that anyone become a temple prostitute or worship God with the help of one. But I do say that there have always been willing prostitutes and willing clients who have been marginalized by traditional sexual mores, and the time has come to change that. And the way to change it is to stop the marginalizing. We’ll all benefit from being a healthier, more inclusive, more faithful, more forgiving, and more satisfied church body if only we’ll be open to the idea of God doing something new.

    As ridiculous as this sounds. don’t be surprised is we see this in our lifetimes. This would work great for the modern church growth movement. Afterall, we have to attract sinners to church somehow, right :)

    About 10 years algo, I sarcastically commented that if I wanted “church growth” at the expense of truth, I would give out free beer at the door.

    10 years later, it’s no longer a joke. See http://news.draftmag.com/2009/06/22/church-uses-free-beer-to-attract-more-men/

    So beware of sarcastis church growth ideas. They may come true.
