Despite of Differences,Come Unity in Jesus Christ!

Should Christian churches allow gays to be ordained as priests?

Homosexuality is condemned in Scripture. Having a right relationship with God begins with acknowledging your sin. God is love (1 John 4:8), but God also punishes the sinner and hates all who do iniquity. To sin is to break God's Law and offend His character.THE BIBLE says that ungodly people hated knowledge and did not choose to fear the LORD and they will eat the fruit of their ways and be filled with the fruit of their schemes. They are people who do not put God and his Word first in their life. They decide what is right and wrong out of their own mind and lusts, and reject and despise God’s demands and prohibitions.

The way of sinners is the path of one’s own will instead of God’s will. Jesus said I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance. (Luke 5:32). Homosexuality is sin (Romans 1:26-32; I Corinthians 6:9-10; Leviticus 20:13; Genesis 2:18-22; I Timothy 1:8-10) God's special protection for Israel Isaiah 11:11-14; 19:19-25; Genesis 12:3; Jeremiah 48:12-15; Ezekiel 29:9-10). So those who are homosexuals and encourage the practice of homosexuality, present deep-seated homosexual tendencies or support the gay culture thereby promoting sinful lives which is contrary to God's word.

The main responsibility of being a priest is to witness holy and pure life and encourage others to live with righteousness, pure and holy conduct.The bible tells us that people become homosexuals because of sin and ultimately because of their own free will when they choose to do wrong. He that committeth sin is of the devil. We must live our lives in purity before a sinful and wicked world. We should not be living according to their standards but according to God's standard in the Bible.

If any one has committed sexual sins they need to genuinely repent and ask God's forgiveness since repentance (Godly sorrow brings repentance) causes true salvation, and salvation gives a person the power to live free from sin and live a Godly life.God gives many warnings regarding sexual immorality in the bible. Paul attributes the moral depravity of men and women to their rejection of "the truth of God" (1:25). They refused "to retain God in their knowledge" (1:28), thereby dethroning God and deifying themselves.

Hebrews 13:4:Marriage should be honored by all, and the marriage bed kept pure, for God will judge the adulterer and all the sexually immoral.

1 Cor 6:9-10:Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom

of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.

Romans 13:13:13:Let us behave decently, as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and debauchery, not in dissension and jealousy.

Ephesians 5:3:But among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity, or of greed, because these are improper for God's holy people.

Jude 1:7:In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual immorality and perversion. They serve as an example of those who suffer the punishment of eternal fire.
God's marriage law requires one man joined with one woman for life, giving children a stable family. So God permits the sexual union only in that relationship. God ordained marriage at creation - man cleaves to his wife and becomes one flesh. Homosexuals also cannot achieve this Divine purpose for marriage,because their union is not called marriage it's called sexual immorality, pervertedness.

The true church will not twist the Gospel and it will preach truth, condemn sins and rebuke sinners. Our opinion in Gods eyes do hot have any value. What matters is Gods ways, because his ways are perfect. So we should hate whatever God hates and God hates Homosexuality and we should hate it too and we should never encourage it in our churches.

Those who practice homosexuality should be brought to repentance and forgiveness promoting Godliness among them. If we allow sexual immorality such as homosexuals, etc. to be in church leadership, sin increases and finally we will be under the judgement of God like Sodom and Gomorah.

God Bless all who rebuke and correct Homosexuals!
