Christians Are Now Being Asked to Accept Polyamory by John Ellis
At every new encroachment on society’s morals made by the sexual revolution, the dissenters are often shouted down with cries of “slippery slope fallacy!” As we all know (especially bakers who desire to operate their business according to the precepts of their faith) the slippery slope is real.
The latest low mark on the slippery hill of complete moral degradation is the push for Christians to accept polyamory, a lifestyle of open relationships that allow dating or marriage partners to have sex with outsiders.
According to a recent article at Patheos, (Link): “It’s time for the Church to talk about polyamory.”
It would be understandable if some read that title and then assumed that the author believes that the Church needs to begin warning Christians about this sinful lifestyle.
Instead, the author, Chuck McKnight, writes, “I should also disclose the fact that my wife and I are polyamorous ourselves and recently decided to open our marriage as such.”
McKnight was driven to open up about his own polyamorous relationship and the lack of affirmation from the Church because the Nashville Statement explicitly condemns polyamory. McKnight asks, “Why the silence from so many potential friends and allies?”
By “friends and allies,” McKnight means: “Why aren’t most LGBTQ-affirming churches being equally vocal about their affirmation of polyamorous people?”
….Violating the marriage bed means lying about Jesus’ faithfulness to his bride, the Church. Polyamory is a blatant attack on Biblical sexuality and a damnable lie about Jesus.
