What You Need to Know About The Nashville Statement

Do you have questions about transgenderism in our culture today? Have you wondered whether the simple truths of Scripture can speak to all of the gender confusion happening in our world?

Last week, the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the SBC and the Council for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood released a 14-point declaration called the “Nashville Statement.” The statement addresses issues of gender and human sexuality from a biblical foundation and has been affirmed by a coalition of evangelical pastors, teachers, and theologians.

Several Southwestern Seminary professors are among the signatories affirming the statement, including Paige Patterson (President), Dorothy Patterson (First Lady), Malcolm Yarnell, III (Prof. of Systematic Theology), Evan Lenow (Assoc. Prof. of Ethics), Candi Finch (Asst. Prof of Theology in Women’s Studies), and Katie McCoy (Asst. Prof. of Theology in Women’s Studies).

We invite you to read the Nashville Statement and to add your name among those affirming the clarity and compassion of Scripture’s teaching on gender and sexuality. No issue in our culture is beyond the wisdom of Word of God. And no person created in His image is beyond the hope of redemption in Christ.
