AB Teacher Convention 2018

Date: October 18-19, 2018

Registration

Registration deadline:  October 1, 2018

Theme: Shalom (Isaiah 9:6)

Keynote Speaker: Dr. Christopher Yuan

Topics: 

Homosexuality: Nature or Nurture?

Are there really “root causes” of homosexuality? Are people born gay? There are two camps: nature (biological) and nurture (environmental). Both claim to be right with science to back them up. With his background in the health sciences, Dr. Christopher Yuan reviews the scientific studies related to etiology of sexual orientation. But more importantly, he helps to show how causation and sexuality are better understood in light of biblical anthropology.

A Christian Response to Homosexuality

Sexual identity is one of the most relevant topics of our day. Most know someone who is gay. How can Christians better engage with our loved ones and friends in the LGB community? How does the gospel (sin, repentance and redemption) influence the conversation around sexual identity? Without any compromise of truth or grace, Dr. Christopher Yuan combines his life experiences and his theological training in biblical languages to bring a fresh and unique perspective on this important topic.

Homosexuality: Texts and Hermeneutics

There are six passages in Scripture which touch on the issue of homosexuality. Traditional interpretation of these texts condemns any sex outside of marriage between a husband and wife. And yet some claim that the Bible does not condemn same-sex relationships. So what does the Bible really say? With a solid background in biblical exegesis—having studied both Hebrew and Greek—Dr. Christopher Yuan presents and analyzes the gay-affirming interpretations of Old Testament and New Testament passages on homosexuality with clarity and compassion.
