Are there any worthwhile LOGOS resources addressing this issue?  I see a number of resources, but I do not know how to evaluate their value.  Thanks for any leads.

Blessings,
Floyd

One of the best is "The Same Sex Controversy" James White- its the only one that is truly biblical.

I could only get a couple hits in my library (doing a headword search)-

This sermon from the John Piper collections, and this article in the ESV Study Bible.

I don't know what else might be available from FL.

I'd sure love to have a transcript of James White's evaluation of Matthew Vines' God and the Gay Christian, which can be heard here. It is about six hours worth of point-by-point, scripturally-based dialog.

If there are other resources already in Logos, hopefully others will post links.

My thanks to the various MVPs. Without them Logos would have died early. They were the only real help available.

Faithlife Corp. owes the MVPs free resources for life.

Didn't remember that one.  Here's the link.

I have seen very positive reviews of this one. I'm looking forward to when it goes into production.

Logos may not be quick to render decisions on the subject ... But our Supreme Court sure did.

ScienceScriptureand Same-Sex Love Is a pretty decent book from Vyrso. I have only skimmed through it but it seems a balanced look.

Here is a scholarly collection of essays on the topic from the conservative side - dealing with biblical passages, legal/religious liberty issues, counseling issues:

Michael Brown's Can You Be Gay and Christian has some good food for thought.

Homosexuality: Contemporary Claims Examined in Light of the Bible and Other Ancient Literature and Law

I've enjoyed this resource so far, although it's a bit of a slower, critical look.

I'd like to point out a resource in this collection -  https://www.logos.com/product/50147/select-works-of-sean-and-josh-mcdowell called Same-Sex Marriage: A Thoughtful Approach to God’s Design for Marriage. It's not available individually but the package is not expensive though.

The latest ETS journal has a couple articles on the subject. If anyone needs me to get them a copy of these articles, I have access to them through my ETS membership. I could search my journals collection and see if any of the archives have any good stuff as well.

Thanks for pointing to that in a collection. I wondered why I couldn't find it in Logos.

I always thought Genesis 3 and the part of Leviticus that says "Be Holy" was universal and true for all.

By the way there is no such thing as same sex (insert other word here but I never will).

Unholy Unions is what I call them.  

May Jesus pull them to shore (like he did me) all those years ago when I was drowning in cultural darkness and unholy (God-distancing) sin.

Thanks be to God for The Cross and a Christ who longs that LGBT embrace His Light rather than let people pat them on their back on the way toward everlasting darkness.

Rightly applying the Bible is all thats needed.  God bless you with that Mr. Johnson.  

We are all compelled to tell the boldly tell truth in love (standing in a wide gap of biblical ignorance) and not sugarcoat boldfaced, flagrant, vile, sins that destroy.  Thank God He has a plan and destroyed the enemy (and ultimately has victory) despite the enemy's tool, SCOTUS, which has clearly tried to desecrate marriage and family as God designed it.

I recommend GOD MARRIAGE AND FAMILY BY Andreas J. Kostenberger.  Its a vital resource - but I think currently missing from Logos.
Here is a link to it on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/God-Marriage-Family-Second-Rebuilding/dp/1433503646/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1435443504&sr=8-1&keywords=god+marriage+and+family+kostenberger
