In a huge monumental shift for the Catholic church, Pope Francis has asked to create a civil union law that calls for homosexual marriages. This is contrary to previous Vatican and Catholic doctrine that has been spoken in the past.
“They’re children of God and have a right to a family,” he said. “Nobody should be thrown out or be made miserable because of it.”
While yes, homosexuals are still children of God and Jesus still loves the, this is contrary to the scripture. Not only that, but marrying homosexuals and starting a family goes against the traditional values of family that God has instructed us to abide by in His word. This is another controversial decision for the Catholic church that is a manifestation of apostasy in these times that we’re living in.
Sin does not modernize.
The sins of Jesus time and the sins of Abraham and David’s times are the same sins of our times. Just because secular society has embraced this change does not mean that Christians should accept this sin into the church. The Bible clearly says that homosexuals will not enter into the kingdom of heaven:
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.1 Corinthians 6:9-10
God loves homosexuals but He hates the practice of sin of homosexuality, it is against His original intention for marriage.
The society that we live in is so sensitive that we cannot talk about the truth without offending anyone. The scripture is truth and it doesn’t have emotions. While God does love the whole world, this doesn’t mean he is okay with everything that we do, sin included. Sin separates us from God, and it will take us to hell.
We must pray for leaders to not compromise the truth!
Christian leaders are so pivotal to spreading this gospel of conformism or keeping the truth active in the church! Leaders exhort influence, and when they spread their modernizing beliefs, it can influence an entire generation of believers. But we believe in a supernatural church, where God can deliver and set people free from their homosexual lifestyles. But just because the world has become more accepting of the LGBTQ community, doesn’t mean that the Bible will change. Until Jesus comes back, the Bible remains and will forever stay the same. We must abide in His word forever until He comes back.
Let us continue to pray that God has mercy over these leaders that have compromised the truth. Let us also pray for those that have fallen into deception, those that have been made to believe that it is okay. I also pray that God’s love destroys every wicked desire in their hearts to fall into this sin, and continues to work on purifying their hearts, so that they can be perfected into the image of Christ.
