While looking for a good definition for “sexual ethics,” I kept coming across Walter Wink and his 1986 essay, “Homosexuality and the Bible.”¹ In this essay, Wink uses the phrase, “love ethic,” and contrasts it with the notion of a “biblical” sexual ethic. In short, this love ethic which Wink proposes finds its source in the teachings of Jesus, through whom Wink insists the entire Scriptural tradition must be interpreted.
