On July 16, 2012 in Columbus Ohio, Patrick Donahue debated Margaret Hawk on this question: “Homosexual Marriage: Is it Compatible with the Scriptures?” Donahue denied and Hawk affirmed.
In Acts 17:11, Jews in the city of Berea were commended by Luke as being “more noble than those in Thessalonica; they received the word with all eagerness, examining the Scriptures daily to see if these things were so.” In 1 John 4:1, John warns, “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for many false prophets have gone out into the world.”
This debate provided a good opportunity to examine the Scriptures and test the spirits.
