Openly Gay And Lesbian Clergy

The Presbyterian Church recently voted to allow openly gay and lesbian clergy serve in their churches. 

Huffpost said that…

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) passed a historic measure Tuesday evening allowing openly gay men and women in same-sex relationships to be ordained as clergy…. A majority of the church’s regional bodies, or presbyteries, defeated a similar measure to allow gay clergy two years ago…. But the amendment needed the approval of a majority of the church’s regional bodies. Nineteen of the bodies that voted against the similar measure two years ago switched their vote this time.” [READ MORE]

As soon as I read the above news, I went looking for pro-homosexual Adventist responses.  The only one I could find was from Seventh-Gay Adventist’s facebook page.  They shared the Huffpost article and said, “YES!”

An earlier post on Seventh-Gay Adventist’s Facebook account said…       

“Fascinating article from a former Presbyterian minister who used to condemn gays from the pulpit, but now fully supports gays.  Makes us wonder, how many of our own spiritual leadership now accepts the LGBT community?”  [SEE FACEBOOK PAGE]               

I do not understand how serious Bible students and Adventists could approve of the homosexual lifestyle, especially gay and lesbian clergy. 

SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT:  What would happen if we placed more and more senior pastors in influential positions like that of Bruce Manners? 

FYI – Pastor Manners, senior pastor for the church at Avondale Adventist College in Australia, supports the Adventist homosexual agenda.

As we continue to love our homosexual brothers and sisters in our churches, we must be very careful not to place spiritual leaders in key positions that support homosexuality.  As I have said before, homosexuals need to ALWAYS feel welcomed and loved in our churches, but this does not mean we have to offer them church membership or leadership positions.

May the good Lord bless us with lots of wisdom and love as we continue to minsiter to those in neeed of Jesus.
