Scandal: How To Get Away With Sexuality Part II - Homosexuality: Does the Bible Really Say It’s Wrong?

Dr.Preston Sprinkle joins us to discuss the bible and homosexuality. He is an accomplished scholar, author, and Vice President of Eternity Bible College. We discuss some common questions that arise from this topic including:
