Hello, I see that this issue started in a Christian church a branch known as Evangelism. The Protestant Church according to The Washington Post article 6/27/17 titled “Polls Show Dramatic Generational Divide in White Evangelical Attitude on Gay Marriage.” The articles states that the members of this Christian Church in America are changing views of how Gay Marriages should be either accepted or rejected by the Church in general. The attitude is actually coming out of certain people within the church: White Young City Professionals or White Urban Young Professionals (YUPPIES).
Is the Protestant Church the only “Christian” religion that has this view on Gay marriages and Homosexuality? NO in the NY Times article 10/21/20 titled” In Shift for Church", Pope Francis Voices Support for Same-Sex Civil Unions”. The same attitude is used in another branch of Christian church.
What does this all mean and where is it leading the people of Christianity’s beliefs and faith? Is the church, where many of us can only follow the leaders, changing its fundamental views of Christian principles and beliefs outlined in the Bible? Are people influencing the “Leaders” to promote non-” Christian” beliefs in how we can apply standard and by the book Bible principles? Is the Bible alone the mode that we all chose to defend our beliefs in Jesus Christ as our redeemer? Let’s just take an honest look at what is happening. The question is: Should the LGBTQ community religiously be accepted or rejected? What is the answer in the Bible:
24 So God let them go ahead into every sort of sex sin, and do whatever they wanted to—yes, vile and sinful things with each other’s bodies. 25 Instead of believing what they knew was the truth about God, they deliberately chose to believe lies. So they prayed to the things God made, but wouldn’t obey the blessed God who made these things.
26 That is why God let go of them and let them do all these evil things, so that even their women turned against God’s natural plan for them and indulged in sex sin with each other. 27 And the men, instead of having normal sex relationships with women, burned with lust for each other, men doing shameful things with other men and, as a result, getting paid within their own souls with the penalty they so richly deserved.
28 So it was that when they gave God up and would not even acknowledge him, God gave them up to doing everything their evil minds could think of. 29 Their lives became full of every kind of wickedness and sin, of greed and hate, envy, murder, fighting, lying, bitterness, and gossip.
30 They were backbiters, haters of God, insolent, proud, braggarts, always thinking of new ways of sinning and continually being disobedient to their parents. 31 They tried to misunderstand, broke their promises, and were heartless—without pity. 32 They were fully aware of God’s death penalty for these crimes, yet they went right ahead and did them anyway and encouraged others to do them, too.
This Biblical passage looks like a prophecy of the future that tells all. The argument of the Protestant Church and also the Catholic Church seems to reject the soundness of the Bible. The younger generation of Evangelical members say the passage above is mistranslation or not in the Bible at all and is not what God has said. They question the passage at 2 Corinthians 6:9–10 as not Biblical and also not true Scriptures.
As for the Vatican the printing of non-Christian doctrine is completely wrong, no matter if a quote was added that it was not church belief. This would be that the Catholics used false media to try to confuse members of the church and added more confusing information to mislead the sheep. If a concept is not Scriptural, then why use it? The so-called officials in the Vatican allowed it to happen which was again a no no and exposes false religion. So, what can we say and what do we do now? What does the Bible say?
2 Thessalonians 2:3-5
3 Don’t be fooled by anything they might say. That day of the Lord will not come until the turning away from God happens. And that day will not come until the Man of Evil appears, the one who belongs to hell. 4 He will stand against and put himself above everything that people worship or think is worthy of worship. He will even go into God’s Temple and sit there, claiming that he is God.
5 I told you before that all these things would happen. Remember?
