Once again, Newsweek, in its far-left quest to justify moral relativity and promote licentiousness among the masses, has set out to vilify Holy Scripture. This is because Newsweek recognizes that the last strongholds of traditional morality in America are built on strong biblical convictions regarding human sexuality and marriage. If Newsweek is to “help” us finally realize the countercultural, utopian dream of the hippie movement of the 1960’s, which sought to marginalize marriage and champion “free sex” without supposed consequences, it must encourage us to jettison our moral compass. This is why Newsweek must attack either biblical authority or the biblical message. In this case, Newsweek attacks both!
In the latest edition of Newsweek (Feb. 6, 2011), Lisa Miller, in her article entitled, “What the Bible Really Says About Sex,” would have us side with the understanding of the so-called “new scholarship” on the left, represented by information gleaned from the books and writings of Jennifer Knust and Michael Coogan.
Miller would have us accept this new understanding of Scripture by confessed liberals over and above the biblical understanding of millions of Christians and Jews who have lived out monogamous, heterosexual relationships for thousands of years. To anyone who is somewhat conversant with what God’s Word teaches on human sexuality, it quickly becomes evident that their “new” understanding of God’s revelation on marriage and sexuality is, to put it nicely, full of holes.

It forbids prostitution, adultery, premarital sex for women and homosexuality,” but then she adds, “But exceptions exist in every case, Knust points out.” Jenny Knust, representing the “new scholarship” of the left, makes serious categorical blunders in her woefully faulty argumentation. Knust repeatedly elevates narrative describing the immoral behavior of fallen individuals to the level of biblical doctrine.
