I am waiting for someone of status to have the guts to publicly say Nate Collins is a lost man that is a Sodomite who is infiltrating the church with the help and endorsement of people connected with TGC and ERLC. He is not a gay man in a mixed orientation marriage. He is a man married to a woman and a Sodomite. Many men are married yet mess around with other men. Nothing new.
""including those who adhere to the belief that homosexuality is a sin.""
Oh Dear! That means they include GOD in their rejection of HIS laws.
Lev 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination."
Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."
Romans 1:26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 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. 28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind...."
It is amazing how many so called "christians" cannot actually read the Bible. But that's the religion of Liberalism for you.
2Peter 2:6 And turning the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha into ashes condemned them with an overthrow, making them an ensample unto those that after should live ungodly; 7 And delivered just Lot, vexed with the filthy conversation of the wicked:"
Every verse of scripture that deals with homosexuality makes it abundantly clear that this particular sin is an abomination to God and should be to man. God hasn't changed, and He isn't going to. The people supporting "gay Christians" are fools, and as always "the mouth of fools poureth out foolishness."
This is, of course, the thin end of the wedge, and the whole idea is to infiltrate good solid evangelical churches from within, undermine the scriptures and substitute them with feelings, and bring in LGBT and Transgender into them, and bring previously staunch solid evangelical churches in line with the one word church agenda, to bring them in to the apostasy that had already captured the main line Protestant denominations a century or so ago.
Biblical qualifications for eldership in a church situation are extremely high. I suppose in these days of modern versions, there is a modified version of that, where even those with sodomite tendencies feel they ought to be accepted as a leader.
