According to The Christian Post, the Episcopal Church have chosen a group of theologians to “study” homosexuality. Let it sink in. It sorta reminds me of the group of religious leaders who studied hours and hours of porn. The panel says it is going to focus on the morality of same-sex relationships .
Sam Guzman, of the Christian site, Slice of Laodicea, is not happy:
That’s like appointing a panel to study the morality of rape or pedophilia. The Bible is clear: homosexuality is sin (Leviticus 18:22, Romans 1:26-27, etc.). Yes, lying, theft, murder, pride, and all other violations of God’s law are also sins. When we point out that homosexuality is sin, we are not condemning homosexuals as a special class of sinners. What we are objecting to is so-called Christians trying to re-define what the Bible clearly calls rebellion against God. There’s no ifs, ands or buts about it.
Satan once asked the question, “Did God actually say…?” (Genesis 3:1), and men, in an attempt to get God’s permission to sin, have been asking the same question ever since. I sincerely hope the theologians on this panel come to a biblical conclusion, but the fact that there even needs to be a panel in the first place doesn’t bode well. Whatever conclusion they come to, it will not change God’s law. God’s standards are not determined by panels.
You know, he’s right. The Bible is clear that homosexuality is a sin. I get sick of people trying to sanitize what is written in Scripture. It was done with slavery. It was done with women’s rights. It was done with interracial marriage. Let’s don’t let it be done again.
The Bible is a horrible place to get your morals. Who in their right mind would even think to compare rape and pedophilia with homosexuality? This person is truly warped. In my opinion, it could even be argued that they are pretty damn close to being evil.
