Professing Christianity slouches toward Sodom and Gomorrah.

Comment on this article

On May 10, 2011, the 2.3 million member Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) voted to allow the ordination of practicing homosexual ministers, removing the requirement that they live in “fidelity within the covenant of marriage between a man and a woman or chastity in singleness.”  (, “Presbyterian Church U.S.A. to allow gay and lesbian clergy,” May 10, 2011).

This directly contradicts biblical instructions (see Leviticus 18:22).  The Apostle Paul also told the Romans that when human beings reject the laws of God governing human sexual behavior, that they will descend into all sorts of sexual perversions with men burning in lustful passions towards other men and women towards women, and as a result, “receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due” (Romans 1:18-29).  Some of the “penalties” Paul wrote about involve emotional damage and physical diseases such as increased risks of cancers, STDs and HIV/AIDS in those who practice homosexuality (, May 9, 2011, “Gay men report higher cancer rate than straight men”).

The Bible states that those who keep God’s commandments will inherit eternal life, but those who break the commandments of God will reap serious consequences (Revelation 22:14-15).
