More than 120 LGBT priests, teachers and Church volunteers in Germany have launched an initiative – OutInChurch – and demanded that Catholic higher-ups toss away their long-standing disdain for homosexual relationships and grant them greater freedoms within the Church.
The group said they want “to be able to live and work openly as LGBTIQ+ persons in the church without fear,” including to serve in all Church occupations, even while in same-sex marriages or partnerships. They also urged the Church to revise “outdated statements” on gender and sexuality, oppose “all forms of discrimination,” and allow LGBTQ persons to receive holy sacraments. The Church should rectify a wrong by admitting its “institutional history of guilt” toward gay people, the group said in its list of demands published online.
If Jesus paid for All Sins, then why is it wrong for homosexuals to be Priests?
The Church has withheld Truth and has given us a watered down Gospel for a long time, teaching us that Jesus paid for All Sins, so as long as we believe Jesus died for our sins, then we are covered, even if we continue to sin.
This is far from the Truth and without going into a lengthy Once Saved always Saved rebuke, I want to address the topic of homosexuals attempting to be accepted in the Church in a direct open Sin.
Jesus wants you to come as you are, but not STAY as you are. The statement of homosexuals wanting to be accepted as homosexual, means they want the Sin of homosexuality to be eliminated as Sin. That is the problem!
A former homosexual can be saved, but not a practicing homosexual or Anyone that practices unrighteousness..
The first statement Jesus made coming out of the wilderness was to REPENT!
Matthew 4:17 NKJV
From that time Jesus began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.”
Repent means to turn away from sin.. This is another problem in the Church that they preach repentance just means to change your mind that there is No God.
Jesus healed many and told them, “Your Sins are forgiven..”
But then, He also mentions to Sin no More! We see this example with the woman caught in an active Sin. This would be similar to an actively practicing homosexual.
John 8-11 – New King James Version
Jesus the Light of the World
8 But Jesus went to the Mount of Olives.
2 Now early in the morning He came again into the temple, and all the people came to Him; and He sat down and taught them. 3 Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, 4 they said to Him, “Teacher, this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now Moses, in the law, commanded us that such should be stoned. But what do You say?” 6 This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, as though He did not hear.
7 So when they continued asking Him, He raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” 8 And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. 9 Then those who heard it, being convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last. And Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. 10 When Jesus had raised Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, “Woman, where are those accusers of yours? Has no one condemned you?”
11 She said, “No one, Lord.”
And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”
12 Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.”
We also see that the Lord Jesusakes a statement that those that Follow Him shall not walk in Darkness. THAT IS A COMMAND STATEMENT!
This is where the Church misses the point that Salvation are for those that Follow the Commandments of Jesus Christ, practice Righteousness, Obedience and Loyalty to the Lord, not for the ungodly.
Therefore continuing in Sin is the opposite of doing so and following the ways of satan and disobedience.
Romans 1:18-32 – New King James Version
God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 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.
Revelation 21:8 – New King James Version
8 But the cowardly, unbelieving, abominable, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, which is the second death.”
1 Corinthians 6:9-11 Nkj
9Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God.
Prepare for the Coming of the Lord Jesus Christ!
Please repent, carry your cross daily and accept the free gift of Jesus Christ’s Death on the Cross for payment for your sins.
