Responding to Claims about Being a “Heretical Liar”

Responding to Claims about Being a “Heretical Liar”Theology in the Raw
Jared is a pastor in Tennessee. On November 13th, Jared posted this comment on X: 

According to Dr. Rosaria Butterfield, What Christian ministries are heretical liars? “Revoice, Preston Sprinkle’s Exiles in Babylon Conference sponsored by his heretical Center for Faith, Sexuality, and Gender, and CRU” 

That’s what she said at 
@LibertyU convocation this past Friday.

What heresies/lies have they spread? 1) “Same-sex attraction is a sinless temptation, and only a sin if you act on it?” 2) “People who experience same-sex attraction are actually gay-Christians called to life-long celibacy?” 3) “People who experience same-sex attraction, rarely, if ever, change, and therefore, should never pursue, heterosexual marriage.” 4) “Sex and gender are different, and God doesn’t care if men live as men or if women live as women, because all you need to do is grow in the fruit of the Spirit, as if the fruit of the Holy Spirit can grow from sin.”

There are several things represented in this post that I have never said nor believe, and therefore I asked Jared to come on my podcast to talk about these errors that are said about me. 

Jared’s original post where he agrees that I’m a “heretical liar”: https://twitter.com/jaredhmoore/status/1724124156470444527

Jared’s post where he lies about my ministry, The Center for Faith, Sexuality & Gender, “advocate[ing] for…non-sexual romance, cuddling & kissing, and snuggling in bed:” https://twitter.com/jaredhmoore/status/1724042446223368248

And here is the paper written by Dr. Greg Coles and published by The Center for Faith, Sexuality & Gender regarding celibate relationships (regarding the cuddling and kissing comment above), which Jared and I discuss toward the end of the podcast: https://www.centerforfaith.com/resources?field_product_category_tid=1

Jared’s post where he publicly says Rachel Gilson is “legitimizing gay marriage,” which is factually wrong: https://twitter.com/jaredhmoore/status/1724088931816276476

Here are a few books I’ve written on the topic of sexuality and gender, which clearly argue against the very viewpoints that Jared says I believe: 

People to Be Loved: https://www.amazon.com/People-Be-Loved-Homosexuality-Issue/dp/0310519659/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1700630797&sr=8-1

Embodied: https://www.amazon.com/Embodied-Transgender-Identities-Church-Bible/dp/0830781226/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1700630831&sr=8-1

Does the Bible Support Same-Sex Marriage? https://www.amazon.com/Does-Bible-Support-Same-Sex-Marriage/dp/0830785671/ref=tmm_pap_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=1700630857&sr=8-1

Here is a two-part series I did on Theology in the Raw on why I believe in the historically Christian view of marriage: Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wuu6LUfEm2A&t=1s Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvuc1S1-408
