    According to the Associated Baptist Press, the CBF leaders described this policy as "welcoming but not affirming" gays. 5. APR Alliance of Baptists criticizes CBF policy: The Alliance is an umbrella group which has about liberal Baptist congregations as members. 6 At their annual convocation, the new CBF policy towards homosexuals came up for discussion. Others have continued to take brave steps in faith towards creating a completely affirming congregation where the sign at the front that says ‘All welcome’ actually means that.

Welcoming but Not Affirming: An Evangelical Response to Homosexuality by Stanley J. Grenz () Paperback – Jan. 1 by Stanley J. Grenz (Author)/5(8). “Welcoming but not Affirming” by Stanley Grenz deta ils a classical Evangelical position on homosexuality.

As such it presents a middle road of the Evangelical spectrum, but it does not itself reflect the diversity of opinion that exists in the Evangelical church on same sex activity. "Welcoming and not affirming" is a murky idea.

As an English teacher, it's hard to read it and really understand what it means. We all know what "welcome" is and how to welcome, but it seems "not affirming" is an odd way to express a verb. Unless you affirm people’s sexual self-identification, you cannot truly welcome them because, by default, you have denied their dignity as individuals.

I welcome Stanley Grenz' book 'Welcoming but not Affirming' for several reasons: (1) Each generation has, it seems, the defining touchstone debates in Christianity, that seem to reach to the core of religious practice and community (interesting that subsequent generations rarely sustain the emotional importance attached to those issues of previous generations)/5(8).

He reviews scientific research, the history of Christian teaching on homosexual. A Christian frame-of-reference is the well-worn term, 'welcoming but not affirming'. 'Welcoming but not affirming' seems to have become a mantra from the book by the same title by Stanley J.

Grenz. In some ways, the mantra has skewed over time what appears to be the original intent of Grenz. “Welcoming and affirming” is the common language that we in the queer faith community use to demonstrate that a church not only recognizes that LGBTQ people deserve respect, but also the.
