A podcast about Christians, the Church, the Bible, our Faith and what we need to do to affirm and include the LGTBQI community - especially those who are seeking Jesus and who want to be involved in the Church.

We believe the Bible is God’s word - through the ages and for today. We should study it, understand it and apply it to our lives.

Hosted by Graeme Codrington, with a masters degree in theology, who was ordained in the Baptist Union of South Africa many years ago, yet changed his conservative view that the LGBTQI community are in deed sinners in need of salvation. After 15 years of studying the scriptures, investigating this topic, speaking with people and engaging with this community, we believe that God made some people gay and that we should accept and embrace the LGTBQI community as God’s creations, loved by Him for who they are, not for who they are meant to be.

In our podcast episodes

- We’ll take you through the evidence found in Scripture, and seen through church history and traditions.

- We’ll ask what this means for churches - what it looks like for churches to affirm the LGBTQI community, and what we should be saying and doing. Together with what this community should be hearing.

- We’ll be sharing some of the stories LGBTQI Christians who love Jesus, and who love the church - even though the church has, in the most part, been so hateful to them. These are people who are desperately seeking Jesus and we must hear their stories.

- We’ll also share some of the stories of people who love Jesus, but hate the church - so that we can hear what the church should be doing. And then, of course, there are those stories of people who used to love Jesus but who know hate Jesus and the Church, because of what the church has done. We need to hear those stories too.

    Ep11: Gender and Sport

    Ep11: Gender and Sport

    Sport is about finding the fastest and strongest human. Almost always, this turns out to be a man. In order to allow women to compete in elite sports, we created a category for "women", and have excluded men from competing in this category. But for over 100 years, we've battled to define who a woman is in sport. Back in 1936, for example, both the gold and silver winners of the 100m accused each other of being men. A "nude parade" was required for all elite women athletes - to literally stand naked in front of a panel of judges to prove they were women. This was changed in the 1960s and 70s to a "female passport". It then shifted to chromosome testing, and today a court has confirmed it relates to hormone levels. But none of these are adequate, and all have been flawed.
    This bonus episode of the ALLin podcast looks at the fascinating history of how sport has tried to define who a woman is, and what it means for us that they have essentially failed to do so in over a century.
    Of course, sport is merely an example. This also applies to how we might define who can go to a girls school, or who gets counted as a woman on your Board or Executive leadership team if your country requires a specific quota of women in those positions.
    This bonus episode concludes the mini-series on "Are there only two genders?". The answer, it is clear, is NO.

    Ep10: Did God create only two genders?

    Ep10: Did God create only two genders?

    Ep09: There are more than two genders

    Ep09: There are more than two genders

    This episode looks at the science, biology and creation facts around gender, sex biology, sexual orientation and a number of other factors that determine male and female. We'll see that all of these exist on a spectrum, and between 7 and 20% of the population exhibit some mixture of genders based on these factors. In addition to our longest episode yet (at just on an 1 hour), there is a list of highly recommended readings below, and a PDF slide deck to download and follow along (see https://www.futurechurchnow.com/2020/01/31/allin-podcast-episode-09-there-are-more-than-two-genders/).

    Ep 08: Abomination!

    Ep 08: Abomination!

    Our study of the Old Testament verses dealing with homosexuality concludes with a detailed word study of the concept of toebah ( תּוֹעֵבָה), translated as "abomination" or "detestable". This word is used 117 times in the Bible, and it is very clear what it is referring to... and it is NOT sexual sin.

    Ep 07: Leviticus 18 and 20

    Ep 07: Leviticus 18 and 20

    The ALLin podcast provides resources and insights for Christians who affirm the LGBTQI community. In this episode we look at the two Old Testament Laws that talk about male gay sexual activity. We look at the context, the Holiness Code and ancient Israel’s sexual ethics.

    Summary: The commands against gay sex in Leviticus 18 and 20 were given to the Israelites before they entered the Promised Land, and they were about the people who already lived there. Look at the first few verses of Lev 18 and 20 and you’ll see clearly that these Laws were about what the pagan nations did in their temples. These temple rituals included tattooing your body, shaving your head and having gay sex with teenage boys. They also included child sacrifice. And God said to the Israelites: don’t do any of these things in MY temple. These chapters in Leviticus are not meant to be a code of sexual ethics for all time, but a specific set of restrictions related to temple Worship in the pagan nations that surrounded Israel. They do NOT apply to gay people today. And they have nothing to say about gay marriage.

    Ep06: Old Testament Laws

    Ep06: Old Testament Laws

    Episode 6 of ALLin pod looks at how we should interpret Old Testament Laws. Do they still apply to us, as Christians today?
    If so, how we do distinguish between those laws that do apply and those that don't? And what does this mean for the two verses in Leviticus that prohibit "men sleeping with men as they would with a woman"? It's a longer episode than normal (44 minutes), but well worth this deep dive into how to apply Old Testaments laws in our modern world.
