The Bible was and is still used to hurt LGBTQ+ people amongst others. What we need is a new look at the Bible and find out how it can be an encouragement instead of a judgment. Kerstin Soelderblom is giving her perspective on Queer Theology and how we can take a Queer look at the familiar.
Bible Verses Kerstin mentioned (positively)
people are made in the image of God Matthew 22:30-35,
“Double Commandment of love” 1. Corinthians 12:27,
“Body of Christ” Galatians 3:28,
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, no male and female….”
The “clobber texts”: Leviticus 18:22; Leviticus 20:13; Romans 1:18-32; 1 Corinthinas 6:9-10; 1 Timothy 1:9-10.
