Reflection. Churches begin to change their discourse on homosexuality. By Fabian Massa.

Translated from Spanish to English with Google translator

The new stance of the most influential US Churches is not confronting homosexuality in their congregations. Partly because the position of the majority of the population is much more permeable to homosexuality that 15 or 20 years ago; and partly because there are many homosexuals in churches and afraid to confront them with what the Bible says about it and be accused of discrimination, especially when the law supports and even encourages homosexual practice.

Pastor Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church in Dallas, with 11,000 members, said: "It would be the height of hypocrisy if you only condemn homosexuals and ignore divorce, adultery and unbiblical attitudes"

Jeffress the sentence follows that the real problem is that most churches (Worldwide) are filled with many people and few born again. They can not confront not only homosexuality, neither fornication, adultery, alcoholism, drugs, violence etc ...

The Episcopal Church in the United States announced the approval of 07.03.2015 marriage ceremonies between people of the same sex, just days after the Supreme Court legalized the practice nationwide. "As permitted by law, the canons allow from now on marriage within the church to all couples," said the Episcopal Church in his Twitter account while celebrating its general convention in Utah. However, the Episcopal Church does not oblige clerics who have objections to officiate the ceremonies, indicó'.

The March 18, 2015, the Presbyterian Church USA It approved the redefinition of marriage in the constitution of the church, by making a "commitment between two people '', becoming the largest Protestant group in the United States to formally recognize gay marriage.

Jesus set us free from sin so we can live a holy life here and now and then an eternity of glory. Something important is to understand that sin is anything that is against God's will and sin no more "bad" than another, but all are equally bad. In order to understand, it is the same lie to steal or kill, or commit adultery or practicing homosexuality. You can not be a Christian and rapist, are things that can not be together. In the same way you can not be a thief and a liar and say that one is a Christian. Nor can you be gay and Christian. It is understood? So it is wrong to charge inks homosexuality and let the other things that are sin, for it is written:

13. Hebrews 13: 4 Marriage is honorable in all marriage, and the bed undefiled; but fornicators and adulterers God will judge. RV 60

Romans 1.26-32 NIV. 26 Therefore God gave them over to shameful lusts. Indeed, the women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones will. 27 Likewise, the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lustful passions each other. Men committed indecent acts with men and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion. 28 Furthermore, since they did not think it worthwhile to retain the knowledge of God, so God gave them over to a depraved mind, to do what they should not do. 29 were filled with every kind of wickedness, evil, greed and depravity. They are full of envy, murder, strife, deceit and malice. They are gossips, 30 slanderers, God-haters, insolent, arrogant and boastful; inventors of evil; they disobey their parents; 31 are unwise, unfair, insensitive, despiadados.32 They know that according to God's righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death; however, not only they continue practicing them but also approve of those who practice.

12. 1 Corinthians 6: 9: 9 Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, 10 Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God . 11 And such were some of you; but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God. RV60

The Word of God is clear, no doubt about it: Either you are in the Kingdom or outside. The issue of homosexuality seems to be the spearhead that will challenge the Church: the Church on the side of the Law of God or the side of the law will be put men?

Week 70 is about to begin, apostasy is to deny the faith, deny Christ. Accept any other practice of sin in the Church, it is apostasy.

Week 70, Treasures of Wisdom, Fabian Massa.

Worldliness in the Church Practice sin, homosexuality.
  The Episcopal Church in the United States is the US national church of the Anglican Communion.
