According to this article in the Telegraph, the Archbishop of Canterbury
has “no problem” with “gay” bishops, but he is “not positive” about
them having relationsips.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, who we understand is also a druid, has no problem with this. Isn’t that wonderful? God however, has a problem with this and all other forms of sin. So much so that He sent His Son to die a cruel death to pay for our sins AND to destroy the sin nature. Does the Archbishop of Canterbury not realise that sinful acts spring from sinful natures? Internal cravings for homosexual expression spring from a corrupted human nature. Where is the message of the cross in what the Archbishop of Canterbury is saying? Doesn’t the cross represent the crucifying of the flesh with its passions and desires? (Galatians 5:24).
It is reported: Asked what was wrong with a homosexual bishop having a partner, he said: “I
think because the scriptural and traditional approach to this doesn’t give
much ground for being positive about it.”
That’s an understatement. The Holy Scriptures repeatedly condemn homosexual relationships. For example in Romans 1:
Rom 1:24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves,
Rom 1:25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
Rom 1:26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature.
Rom 1:27 Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
Clearly this ecclesiastical leader is conditioning the church to accept leaders who are practicing homosexuals. You start by saying the homosexual identity is fine – and you end by saying that expressing it is “only natural”. In striving to make the church agreeable to sinful and worldly people everywhere, people who have been conditioned by the media over the last 30 years to embrace these things, this part of the Anglican church has become odious to GOD. This is a very clear picture of apostasy. It is simply nauseating.
You may as well say that God has no problem with adulterers, thieves and wife-beaters running the church. A bishop, says the Bible, “must be blameless, the husband of one wife”.
The Archbishop went on to say concerning the “issue” of homosexuality, “The Church at
the moment doesn’t quite know what to make of it.”
What a pathetic thing “The Church” must be then. “The Church” is confused. “The Church” can’t quite work out what the Bible says. The church doesn’t know what is right and what is wrong here. “The Church” is going to wet its pants. How pathetic.
I want to say that the REAL PEOPLE OF GOD who know the HOLY SPIRIT personally are not such limp wristed compromisers as to “not quite know what to make of it”.
It is time that irrelevant leaders such as the Archbishop of Canterbury were relegated to the dustbucket of history, and time for true cross-bearing, heroic soldiers of the cross of Christ to arise and boldly proclaim the full message of God. Not that we should major on this homosexual issue at all – far more important things must be proclaimed – but we should not be afraid to talk about sexual purity as being a requirement for people who want to walk with God. And people who do not walk with God have no business being leaders in the TRUE church of Jesus Christ. They need to consent to be saved from their sins first, and give up their lives for the sake of Jesus Christ, the Holy and Pure Savior of the world.
