The Christian Post reports that a panel of Episcopal theologians are working on preparing “a paper on same-sex relationships in the life of the church.” This group of “theologians” “very intentionally represents a robust range of views on the subject and includes gays and lesbian persons.”
Wow – I am so happy to hear that a panel studying “same-sex relationships in the life of the church” includes same-sex advocates. This should be a really unbiased examination of what God’s Word has to say, dontcha think?
It is a joke that they are even asking the question. As someone who has actually read the Bible, I’ll be glad to save them some time:
- 100% of the verses addressing homosexual behavior denounce it as sin in the clearest and strongest possible terms.
- 100% of the verses referencing God’s ideal for marriage involve one man and one woman.
- 100% of the verses referencing parenting involve moms and dads with unique roles (or at least a set of male and female parents guiding the children).
- 0% of 31,173 Bible verses refer to homosexual behavior in a positive or even benign way or even hint at the acceptability of homosexual unions or oxymoronic “same sex marriage.”
We are all sinners in need of a savior, even if you excluded our sexual sins. But Christians should never encourage sin or say that sin isn’t sin. That is profoundly un-loving and the opposite of what Jesus did.
Despite the lies of the Left, this is what is coming soon to a country near you: UK Police tell Christian Preacher: it’s a crime to say ‘homosexuality is a sin’. But always remember that there is definitely no homosexual agenda.
President Obama has appointed Kevin Jennings, co-founder and executive director of the Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network (GLSEN), to be Deputy Assistant Secretary of Education for the Department of Safe and Drug-Free Schools. Read this link and see how the public face is all about alleged anti-bullying efforts but their real motives are still in the closet:
After the “town hall meeting” concluded and the media had left the building, the 210 attendees broke into private workshop groups, where GLSEN presenters expounded a markedly different vision for the future. Denouncing the quest for “tolerance” as a “condescending campaign for the second-class citizenry” —— as one speaker put it —— the presenters spoke frankly about their goal to have homosexuality open “affirmed” and celebrated” in American’s schools.
“We might start with people who…say, ‘Well, I can go as far as tolerance,’ and then we build from there,” Kalteissen said. “And our job, I believe, is to move them down the scale…Tolerance is not enough, let’s keep going.”
Hmmmm . . . is it possible that people who are aggressively trying to teach kindergartners how normal this behavior is could lie about their motives?
But always remember that there is definitely no homosexual agenda.
A new religion masquerading as Christianity — a former theological liberal explains how things changed once she quit putting her personal preferences over the commands of the Bible.
Before I came to know Christ in a saving way I was a liberal “Christian.” (That was before the liberals coined the term “progressive Christian.”) As all liberals do, I molded Christianity into my worldview. Problem was I kept running into a road block — the Bible.
I hope that the theological liberals who visit this site will make the same course correction that she did — while there is still time!
Just when you thought they couldn’t go any lower: Free abortions to honor George Tiller! (OK, we knew they could go lower.)
How Unconstitutional is Barack Obama? Let me count the ways — Why aren’t Liberals and ACLU types going insane over this?!
