Why This Term?

"Queering" is not a term that anyone on the GOD'S VOICE Committee or team enjoys hearing, seeing or repeating. The words "queer" and "queering" used to mean something derogatory, but not anymore. Today, "queer" is how the LGBTQ+ community is now delightfully communicating about themselves.

"Queer" and the idea of "queering the church" is from the "LGBTQ+ Christian" movement. The term "queer" or "queering" is the idea of adding something unique to whatever is connected or next to the word. The LGBTQ+ community believes "queer" is identifying all things in LGBTQ+ as unique and good. The decision to use the conference subtitle:  "A Biblical Response to the Queering of the Church" is a result of those who are busy promoting "revoicing" the church to embrace all things "queer" as good, and even holy. The "LGBTQ+ Christians" go as far as communicating that there will be "queer treasure found in heaven."

The GOD'S VOICE Committee and the team supporting the conference are people who are grieved at what is transpiring in the church. We could not disagree more about the empowering the LGBTQ+ way of life, calling "queer" good, knowing that this way of life and the corrupt identification only leads to further deception, chaos and for some, even death. We are praying for God's mercy to change hearts to move away from such broken identities and terms.
