POPE AND BISHOPS MEET ON “THE FAMILY”
As headlines announced the Pope would meet with bishops to discuss issues surrounding the family over the last few days, I thought that with the never-ending headlines about priest pedophilia and sexual assault cases against priests, surely the Pope and bishops would discuss the allowance of marriage within the priesthood.
It turns out that might be too righteous a lifestyle among most Catholic hierarchy.
A document prepared after a week of discussions among 200 bishops and Pope Francis reveals the discussions were about accepting gay relationships in the church…quite in line with the current state of affairs in the Catholic church.
The document stated, “homosexuals had gifts and qualities to offer” and the question was posed as to whether or not the church would accept gays and recognize the “positive aspects of same-sex couples.”
Gee, why not, seeing how countless priests are attracted to men and boys anyway? What hypocrisy!
You would think the Pope might consider allowing the priests to marry so they would stop molesting children – consistently committing heinous crimes against children!
Not a chance. Not the harlot church described in Revelation 18.
The document further stated, “Are our communities capable of proving that accepting and valuing their sexual orientation, without compromising Catholic doctrine on the family and matrimony?”
Not only is such a proposal of acceptance hypocrisy; if one takes the Word of God literally, God said such relationships are an abomination:
“You shall not lie with mankind, as with womankind; it is an abomination” Leviticus 18:22.
Let’s make God’s commandment very clear:
“If a man also lies with mankind, as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death, their blood shall be upon them” Leviticus 20:13.
Need New Testament scriptures? It is all outlined in Romans 1; homosexuality is a sin in the OT, as well as the NT.
God sent His Son Jesus to die for the sins of mankind. Therefore, the Old Testament sentence of death no longer applies to those who repent and forsake their sins:
“When Jesus lifted Himself up and saw no one but the woman, He said to her, Woman, where are your accusers? Has no man condemned you? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said to her, Neither do I condemn you; go, and sin no more” John 8:10-11.
The Catholic church is looking for a way to compromise the Word of God and get away with it, but on Judgment Day, they will stand guilty before God.
The Lord died for our sins and if we will only repent and seek to do His will, He will forgive us and give us the power to live a holy life:
“God has not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness” 1 Thessalonians 4:7.
“Follow peace with all men and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord” Hebrews 12:14.
God has enabled all who are willing to live a holy life:
“Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will perform it until the Day of Jesus Christ” Philippians 1:6.
“As it was in the days of Lot, they did eat, drink, they bought, they sold, they planted, they builded; but the same day that Lot went out of Sodom (the city named after its sin), it rained fire and brimstone from heaven and destroyed them all” Luke 17:29.
The same thing will happen after God takes up His people (1 Thessalonians 4:16-18).
Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page of this website. Your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.
