ALL IN – Christains Affirming LGBTQAI

ABOUT THIS PODCAST

A podcast about Christians, the Church, the Bible, our Faith and what we need to do to affirm and include the LGTBQI community - especially those who are seeking Jesus and who want to be involved in the Church. We believe the Bible is God’s word - through the ages and for today. We should study it, understand it and apply it to our lives. Hosted by Graeme Codrington, with a masters degree in theology, who was ordained in the Baptist Union of South Africa many years ago, yet changed his conservative view that the LGBTQI community are in deed sinners in need of salvation. After 15 years of studying the scriptures, investigating this topic, speaking with people, and engaging with this community, we believe that God made some people gay and that we should accept and embrace the LGTBQI community as God’s creations, loved by Him for who they are, not for who they are meant to be. In our podcast episodes - We’ll take you through the evidence found in Scripture, and seen through church history and traditions. - We’ll ask what this means for churches - what it looks like for chur
