Bob Jones University statement on BJUnity

Posted: Updated:

GREENVILLE, S.C. (June 20, 2012) – Bob Jones University recognizes the right of alumni to organize and support the LGBT agenda and LGBT events. We trust they will respect our right to exercise our belief in the absolute authority of God's Word.

At Bob Jones University we accept Scripture as the Christian's authority for life and belief, and therefore, its teachings are the basis for our policies. When it comes to the matter of sexual expression, the Bible speaks with a clarity and consistency that spans both Old and New Testaments. The Bible advances a monogamous heterosexual marriage relationship as God's intention from the beginning.

Since the Scripture says clearly that homosexuality is a sin, BJU policies forbid homosexuality. We do not single out homosexuality in our policies, however, but address all forms of sexual expression prohibited by Scripture, including lewdness, sensual behavior, adultery, pornography, and sexual perversion of any kind. Students and their families know our Christian living policies before students enroll.
