    Here is a news article I found about a church celebrating homosexual pride: First Congregational Church celebrates LGBT Pride, one year of inclusion

    1 Corinthians 6:9-10, a New Testament scripture, says that homosexuals will not inherit the Kingdom of God. This verse is even more severe than the Old Testament verse Leviticus 20:13, which proscribes the death penalty for sodomy. Why? Because perdition is eternal, but death is only temporary.

    Why are there churches that celebrate homosexual pride? It isn’t different than celebrating pride in other types of sins such as adultery, thievery, perversity, etc.

    They are falling victims to political correctness rather than following Jesus.

    Because they are deceived.

    I could be wrong, but didn't Jesus said that people will believe false doctrine?

    Sadly -- we see it all too often.

    Can't go wrong if --
    we stick to the Bible.

    It is a form of antinomianism which has the erroneous belief that Jesus loves us no matter what we believe or do. It is a shortcut to hell.

    I trust you understand you've asked a question that under the rules can't really be answered in this group. In summary: they think you're misreading the Bible: taking passages that actually talk about something else and misapplying them. It's not about politics or popularity. Everyone knows that conservative Christianity is more popular. These churches have counted the cost.

    Jesus never walked away from a Homosexual
    so they have no reason to follow. Jesus faced
    them face to face.

    That we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive; But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:- Ephesians 4:15-15

    Pastor explaining three sinful addictions

    1. Acceptance
    2. Appreciation
    3. Attention

    And we need to break free of these addictions and not care what the people think. Growing up I used to worry about what the people thought and would labor to be accepted and fit in. Now I am saved I cannot worry about what the people think. Even in church circles I cannot go along with every wind of doctrine that blows my way. Christ represents me before the Father and I represent Christ on the earth. The plant manager is talking of sending me to a customer. If I go before the customer I represent the company. If my conduct is bad my plant and plant manager look bad. If I impress the customer I impress my plant and plant manager. If Christians conduct is bad on earth it makes Christ looks bad in heaven. And we will answer for our conduct. Churches also exist on earth and we must represent Christ in the church as well as Christ in the world.

    Get woke; go broke.

    The pro-LGBT ecclesial communities can certainly confirm that.

    Jesus would never turn away any type of sinner, whether he’s a homosexual, thief, adulterer, or whatever. As people who were once sinners but now saved, the key is not to engage in our prior sinful conduct anymore. Which is to say that a homosexual who become born again must not continue in his immoral proclivities and instead embrace a repentant life of chastity and wholesomeness.

    You may not realise that the actions referred to were promiscuity
    and sex outside of marriage.
    But then, just like now, monogamy
    is not well supported like it should be.

    Even in this forum, people think gays should abandon
    their mates. "More sins can fix sins" they think. Leave
    your partner and God will smile!

    Do you think I didn't already know that? In my previous post to you, I said that homosexuals can repent and live a life of chastity (which means they must refrain from gay conduct). Quit manufacturing a straw man to make an inaccurate criticism.

    No, it was referring to homosexuals who engage in gay conduct with one or multiple partners.

    Jesus said that even if a man looks on a woman to lust after her commits adultery with her in his heart. Therefore, in the same way that lustful thoughts toward a member of the opposite gender are sinful, lustful thoughts against someone of the same gender is equally sinful, even though no actual sinful act has occurred.

    Jesus did not celebrate them, however. My post was very clear.

    There are churches that celebrate the current president, I think people should stop taking out their measuring sticks to see he is more pious.

    In which case we can hardly call such people "homosexuals"... They are celibate or in a heterosexual relationship.

    You really need to start studying the Bible in greater depth. A little exegesis will answer your points.
