A Christian publisher needs to decide whether it is going to exalt God in its business or serve the world, says Matt Barber.

Multnomah is set to publish a book entitled, "God and the Gay Christian: The Biblical Case in Support of Same-Sex Relationships." It's written by Matthew Vines, a homosexual activist and Bible revisionist.

Barber, Matt (Liberty Counsel)Barber, vice president of Liberty Counsel Action, compares the controversy to "another World Vision," referring to the relief organization's recent trouble with accepting homosexuality.

"The scripture talks about that there will be a great falling away," says Barber. "And it's really sad to see Multnomah publishers here drifting toward trying to have their cake and eat it, too."

On his website Barbwire.com, Barber alleges Multnomah plans to release "God and the Gay Christian" through the publisher's imprint, Convergent Books, which Barber says is a liberal subsidiary of the company. 

Multnoma logoBarber also shared information from an unnamed source that suggested Multnomah is insisting that its employees remain quiet about Convergent's forthcoming book. The book is available Aprill 22. 

Speaking to OneNewsNow, Barber likens it to selling one's soul for money, suggesting the publisher should be held accountable.

"I mean, it's certainly their prerogative to abandon the scripture," says Barber. "But no longer call yourself a Christian publishing company. Call yourself a secular publishing company or an anti-Christian publishing company, because what they are doing here is counter biblical, it's anti-Christian and it flies in the face of God's teaching on sexual morality."

Over the years Multnomah has published Christian conservatives such as Randy Alcorn, Kay Arthur and Dr. David Jeremiah.
