Can Homosexuality and Christianity Mix?

[Media Source*]

(Hat Tip: World Mag Blog)

(IRD) The official conference center for the United Methodist Church's conservative Southeast Jurisdiction is hosting a four-day pro-homosexuality rally September 2-5. Lake Junaluska is located near Asheville, North Carolina.

Called "Hearts on Fire," the convocation is organized by Reconciling Congregations, the main pro-homosexuality lobby group attempting to overturn the United Methodist Church’s teachings on marriage and sexual ethics.

Although the argument for gay rights (as in marriage, etc.) will probably never end in the next century, the very idea of mainline churches (or at least serious ones)condoning this lifestyle is moot. Homosexuals are welcome to enter into a church, just as much as prostitutes, atheists, adulterers, pornographers, etc., but for a church to simply turn a "blind eye" towards this (as well as the other listed life styles) would be to contradict the very teachings Christianity, in the Old Testament as well as The New.

Although some may debate the interpretation of scripture regarding this lifestyle, the scriptures seem pretty clear about God's view (that is if a person believes in the Bible) about homosexuality as well as any other type of sin.
"Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,
Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God."

Source: 1 Corinthians 6:9

Regardless of a person's particular belief, they must realize that joining the Christian faith requires a cost; submitting one's will to the Word of God. To not do so leaves open the debate of one one is a disciple of Christ which can leave a person open to "unforeseen circumstances."

Sin is sin, and although some may be worse than others, all paths lead towards destruction. Regardless of whether a person is a typical liar, womanizer or an axe murder, all are required to repent (i.e. renounce your former ways and do a "180" in the other direction) and if someone disagree's with this point of view, perhaps they can explain their perception to God on judgment day. After all, He wrote the book.
