Do you not know that the unrighteous and the wrongdoers will not inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived (misled): neither the impure and immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor those who participate in homosexuality, Nor cheats (swindlers and thieves), nor greedy graspers, nor drunkards, nor foulmouthed revilers and slanderers, nor extortioners and robbers will inherit or have any share in the kingdom of God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)
Dealing with homosexuality in the church and how should church relate to gay and lesbian coupled? Does loving homosexuals include warning them to repent and change their ways; or does it mean affirming every sexual orientation as a marvelous gift of God? Infact, what is the world turning too, homosexuality and lesbianism in the church?
The churches is coming to the days of "Sodom and Gomorrah when people gave themselves up to sexual immorality and pervasion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire" (Jude 7).
If people want homosexual relationships and also church membership, should the church exclude them from membership or be recognized as members in good standing? Should churches ordain homosexuals as leaders. They should beleaders to their own members and not the churches.
Jude 3-4 warns that people who wants to change the pattern and church's biblical teachings will meet a terrible end, just like some ancient cities that wallowed in many sins, including homosexual behaviour and which the Lord destroyed by fire. If the churches practice or defend sexual pervasion while talking sweetly of God's grace and love, we deny Jesus because of homosexuality The church must have the courage and clarity to say "no" on at least no to gay and lesbian sex acts, and no to homosexual marriage and church rituals to bless same sex unions because of sex and satisfaction and after that what is next? The church leadership practice or promote homosexual conduct. Many that practice such act will go to eternal hell burning with brimstone forever.
