Pastor Challenges 2000 Years of Christian Anxiety about Sex

Christians Can Be Both Faithful and Sexual

 

Philadelphia, PA, June 5, 2018 – The Incarnation Institute for Sex & Faith (IISF) announces the release of a webinar series that will teach people how to live a sex-positive Christianity. Entitled “Reading the Bible with Sex-Positive Eyes,” this webinar series is the work of Reverend Dr. Beverly Dale, a Disciples of Christ pastor.

 

“The Christian church’s teachings that have fueled the purity culture, which prizes virginity before marriage, have been destructive for women and sexual minorities who have been captured in its guilt, fear and shame.” said Rev. Dr. Dale, a professor at Lancaster Theological Seminary. “This has got to change.”

 

The four-part webinar series includes the topics: “Introduction to Christian Sex Negativity: The Beginnings,” “Discerning Truth, Discerning Culture,” “Sex in the Bible: The Good, The Bad & the Ugly,” and “Sex: Whether, When, and How.” The webinars can be accessed through the websitehttp://www.incarnationinstitute.org.

Dale’s work is science-based and theologically grounded in scripture. Dr. Beverly Whipple, a researcher who helped to identify the G-spot and female ejaculation, is on Dale’s Advisory Team. Whipple said of her work on its behalf: “I am honored to be an advisor for this organization as a way to encourage the faith community to be involved in positive sexual health.” Another Advisor is Dr. Virginia Mollenkott, a Christian theologian whose focus corrects the trans and homophobia within Christendom has sought to empower the sexual minority communities. She calls the work of the Incarnation Institute for Sex & Faith an “imaginative and gifted ministry”!
