Compromise By Believers On Divorce And Remarriage Leads To Compromise On Homosexuality

My daughter Leah brought to my attention the article referenced by this link: (http://www.faithstreet.com/onfaith/2014/03/31/what-c-s-lewis-marriage-can-tell-us-about-the-gay-marriage-controversy/31512 ). The essay clearly shows how compromise on divorce and remarriage leads to compromise on homosexuality. Notice toward the beginning of the article Ken Wilson writes “I have proposed a path for these pastors that allows them to embrace people who are gay, lesbian, and transgender and to accept them fully — welcome and wanted — into the company of Jesus. I wrote A Letter to My Congregation when I realized my views had changed and I needed to communicate the intense theological, biblical, pastoral, and spiritual process that I had been through to get to this new place. It began with a burr beneath the saddle of my conscience: why was I willing to let so many divorced and remarried couples know that they are welcome and wanted while refusing that same welcome to gay and lesbian couples? How could I say to the remarried couples, whose second marriage was clearly condemned by the plain meaning of scripture, ‘You are welcome and wanted,’ while saying to the two mothers raising their adopted child together, ‘I love you, but I hate your sin’?”

Are you also part of a church that says (like Mr. Wilson) “to the remarried couples, whose second marriage was clearly condemned by the plain meaning of scripture, ‘You are welcome and wanted’”? I am guessing 99% of professed believers are part of such a church that doesn’t stand anymore for the truth taught by passages like Matt 19:9, Mark 6:17-18, I Cor 7:10, and Rom 7:2-3. Do you see how your church has compromised, and where it is headed? It’s just a matter of time. The issues stand or fall together.

The following passages show our responsibility to those who are in adulterous marriages: Gal 6:1, James 5:19-20, I Cor 5, II Thess 3:6,14-15, Rom 1:32 – try to get them to repent, and if they won’t, withdrawal of fellowship.  If we don’t, we will be lost too – II John 10-11, Ezek 3:18, Acts 20:26-27.
