For more than four decades, organizations like Exodus International, Courage, and Homosexuals Anonymous have provided counsel and support to people who realized they were attracted to the same sex, considered homosexuality a sin, and wanted help dealing with their desires. These groups and the people they served made up what’s often called the “Ex-Gay Movement,” a phenomenon which has always gotten its share of supporters and critics.
Its critics have tended to be pro-gay, some producing books and documentaries hoping to persuade others that their accusations against the ex-gay movement validated their gay-affirming position.
But Greg Johnson’s book Still Time To Care (Zondervan) is a unique addition to these criticisms, because unlike others, he writes from the position of a traditionalist who views homosexual behavior as sin. His objections to the movement he decries are not, therefore, over its theological stance, but the way it practiced and promoted that stance.
This Postmodern Realities episode is a conversation with Journal author Joe Dallas about his online-exclusive article, “Is it Time To Change Ministry to LGBTQ People? Book Review Still Time to Care by Greg Johnson (Zondervan, 2021)”.
