Christianity and Sexual Morality Revisited

Modern Believing (2014), 55, (2), 141–147.


The morality of sexual relationships is dependent on the presence or absence of love, not in the sense of infatuation but rather a deeper bond that treats the other as a person not an object. So argued Anglican theologian Kenneth Ingram in the 1940s. He was one of the first Church of England thinkers to argue for a consistent approach to opposite-sex and same-sex partnerships.
