Queer Bible Study Gets Started at Harvard and MIT

As the American church gets further away from Biblical truth, it’s still a concerning time when sin is not just tolerated, but celebrated within “Christian” circles.

Liberal higher education campuses aren’t known for embracing Christians or conservative ideals, which is still the case. However, Harvard and MIT are bringing Bible studies onto their campuses — just not the way you might assume.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has LGBTQ Services with a Rainbow Lounge. The group calls itself “an intercultural campus resource for diverse gender, romantic and sexual identities.”

Harvard has teamed up with the LGBT group to host a “Christian” devotion.

The MIT/Harvard Queer Bible Study has a sign-up page that reads:

Hi there! We’re so excited that you’re interested in joining us for Bible study this spring. Through a careful and generous engagement with the Gospel of Mark, we hope to create a queer- and trans-affirming Christian space in which we can bring the fullness of our lives, desires, and selves into conversation with the good news of Jesus Christ. We’ll be meeting each Thursday evening from Feb. 17th – Apr. 21st on Zoom, with the hopes that we will be able to gather in person later in the semester if the public health situation permits.

It makes one wonder if the self-described Bible study group will study verses on sexual immorality, such as:

“Do not have sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman; that is detestable.” – Leviticus 18:22

“In the same way, the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.” – Romans 1:27

“Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men…” – 1 Corinthians 6:9

The Bible lays out a plan for Christians to follow, but nowadays, it appears that certain scriptures are cherry-picked to further a leftist agenda while the Bible in context and as a whole is shunned.

This comes at a time when faith in God is at an all-time low. As Biblical principles are ignored, some churches and self-proclaimed Christians are using the name of God to further their secular lifestyle without discerning the real God of the Bible.
