"United Church of Christ backs gay marriage"
WHAT DOES THE BIBLE SAY?
Does it matter what a church synod says about an issue? Does it matter what manís desires are? What do the Scriptures say about fleshly lusts? Look at these versus on this issue and decide for yourself.
- Genesis 2:24: "Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh."
- Romans 1:27: "And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet."
- 1 Corinthians 6:9 "Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankindÖ"
- John 14:15: "If ye love me, keep my commandments."
These are just a few verses that relate to this issue. Homosexuality is obviously a sin. We can overcome sin by making a choice to do right.
1Cor. 10:13 "There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it."
As a note, we are not associated with the denominational United Church of Christ that supports this false doctrine. Please see our website for details on the one true church founded by Christ 2000 years ago.
