The Simple Reason Why Gay Marriage Is Rejected by the ChurchWatch
Yes, and quite frankly I find it sickening. I heard of high profile bishops voting for homosexuality to be taught in classrooms, or something like that. I am not of the Catholic Church, nor the Church of England. It's farcical how the Catholic Church can allow a gay man to be made priest. In effect they have given up all their principles and connections with God.
They should know better and not give into society, that is after all part of the christian lifestyle.
The Bible disagrees with it, and to go to heaven and be a true follower one must agree with all that is in the bible. That people, is the church.
Where you get off accusing the church of being homophobic, I don't know. I dont understand why the public seems to think that the church should change with society. God warned believers against the world, saying we are in it, but not of it.
Christianity has set rules, which no one but God himself has the right to change. Some idiotic theologians have been trying to twist the words of the bible saying that God didn't actually say anything against homosexuality, well they are just seeking some sort of reassurance that their beliefs on the matter are in line with God.
In the New testament, Corinthians chapter 6, verses 9-10. I will give you a small quote otherwise you'll accuse me of 'bible bashing'.
"Do not be fooled....Those who sin sexually...are male prostitutes OR MEN WHO HAVE SEXUAL RELATIONS WITH OTHER MEN...will not inherit Gods Kingdom.
So you see the bible is clear, there is no obscurity. You have a choice, you can either dismiss it, or you can accept it. DO NOT try to accuse the church of being old fashioned because we are only following the Bible.
It is tough being a christian, yes we also do bad things, we are sinners. Thats why Jesus was sent down to earth, to wipe our sins away.
100 years ago people would have agreed with what I'm saying, today they will shrug it off because they just cannot give up the sinful lives they are living.
If you want to know more about Christianity and what it has to offer, please feel free to send me a private message, i think I;ve gone on long enough.
I feel it is worth mentioning that the church has already admitted that there was a mistranslation in this very passage, where what we now know to mean female prostitution was originally translated to mean fornication!
Um. Sorry this was badly written, I hope you can get the general idea. But, yes, this verse does not condemn homosexuality. What else have you got?
