"Gay Christianity" Refuted by James White

Matthew Vines has been gaining quite a following with his video entitled "The Gay Debate - The Bible and Homosexuality," in which he tries to argue that homosexuality is not actually sin according to the Bible. But James White has offered a thorough response to his arguments, and he has made the audio available for download free of charge at the Alpha & Omega Ministries website. Here is a brief description of Dr. White's response from his website:
The complete response to Matthew Vines is now available as a single program. Yes its five hours and nine minutes long, (72meg in size), but the world needs to hear this message. We believe this so much that we have decided to make this publicly available to be distributed for free. Share it with your friends and relatives. We've titled it "Gay Christianity" Refuted and only ask that you not change it or sell it. All fair use rules apply for criticism too.
I strongly encourage the blog's readers to take this opportunity to listen to Dr. White's defense of the Scriptural view and to tell your friends about it as well. Dr. White plays and responds to the entirety of Matthew Vines' presentation. Again, you can download the audio at the Alpha & Omega Ministries website here.

Bob Gonzales on the Well-Meant Offer of the Gospel

If you aren't already familiar with Dr. Gonzales' series of posts regarding the "well-meant offer" of the Gospel, I encourage you to check them out. The first article suggests an update to the Baptist Confession of 1689, followed by a series of articles explaining the issue, the objections to the doctrine, and a defense of the doctrine. For you convenience, here are links to the articles in the order in which they were written:
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
You can also find the articles listed on one page at Dr. Gonzales' blog here. You will see them listed with the most recent at the top and the oldest at the bottom of the page. 
I continue to find Dr. Gonzales' writings some of the most helpful and readable offerings on important theological subjects that are available on the internet. Let me know what you think.
