    The Bible is 100% CLEAR, that homosexuality, trans, and any other sexual perversion that is classed in lgbtqia+, is AGAINST the Inspired, Infallible Teachings of God, and has its origins in the devil himself, and must be rejected as such.

    The church of England continues its departure from the God of the Bible, and the Teachings that are very clearly set forth in His Word, and is doing the work of the devil!

    Church of England moves closer to services of blessing for same-sex couples

    I agree...and that can be said for any sinful lifestyle.

    Christians need to love these people but not allow that sin into the congregation (much less openly support sin).

    ‘You shall not lie with a male as with a woman; it is an abomination’ - Leviticus 18:22

    ‘If a man lies with a male as with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination; they shall surely be put to death; their blood is upon them’ - Leviticus 20:13
    ‘For this reason God gave them up to dishonourable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature; and the men likewise gave up natural relations with women and were consumed with passion for one another, men committing shameless acts with men and receiving in themselves the due penalty for their error’
    - Romans 1:26-27

    ‘Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor persons who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God’
    1 Corinthians 6:9-10
    ‘The law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who strike their fathers and mothers, for murderers, for the sexually immoral, persons who practise homosexuality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine’ - 1 Timothy. 1:9-10

    Very clear to anyone who will accept what the Bible Teaches, that homosexuality is not only a SIN with the Holy God of the Bible, but also an ABOMINATION.

    No homosexual can or will enter heaven!

    "But the cowards, unbelievers, vile, murderers, sexually immoral, sorcerers, idolaters, and all liars—their share will be in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur, which is the second death" - Revelation 21:8

    God Created Adam and then Eve, not Adam and Steve!

    Male and Female, and not some half and half freak!

    Please pray
    1. That the good men (and there are many) within the Church of England will know what to do in the light of these decisions
    2. For all the Bible-believing churches within the UK. The recent change of government may lead (if the LBGTXYZ people have their way) to restrictions on the right of the preacher to speak against sin in all its forms, and also on the right to counsel and pray for those who come to us with unwanted same-sex attraction. If these rights are taken away, please pray that we will have the courage to follow Acts of the Apostles 5:29.

    It is very clear from Jesus' own words, that He Taught that homosexuality, and any of the LGBTQ+ is morally wrong and sinful.

    "But from the beginning of the creation, God 'made them male and female.' 'For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, 'and the two shall become one flesh'; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. " - Mark 10:6-8

    Here we have Jesus Christ, God Incarnate, saying that from the time of Creation, we have MALE (ἄῤῥην, masculine) and FEMALE (θῆλυς, feminine), TWO distinctive classes. This destroys any notion of any "trans".

    Then we have relationships and marriage, both Jesus says is between a MAN and a WOMAN, with NO exceptions. This destroys all of the LGBTQ+

    It is very clear and conclusive that the Highest Authority, God Almighty, Jesus Christ, tells us for all time, that there is no room for any of the LGBTQ+ lifestyles, which are SINFUL, and against the Teachings of the Holy Bible.

    This is what the new prime minister of the UK said in his opening speech in Parliament yesterday

    "Mr Speaker-elect you preside over a new parliament, the most diverse parliament by race and gender this country has ever seen. And I’m proud of the part that my party has played, proud of the part that every party has played in that. Including, in this intake, the largest cohort of LGBT+ MPs of any parliament in the world"

    I believe that this, and other very wicked and sinful "laws", are the main cause of the UK being overtaken by many of the false religions in this world, brought daily from the illegals arriving here! This is the Righteous Judgement of the Lord God of the Bible.

    Unless the Lord has MERCY on this nation, we are surely doomed!

    In the US, the United Methodists have gone down that road. In our town, there is a United Methodist "church" building with a great big "pride" banner on the outside wall, touting "diversity."

    I had a friend from Sri Lanka who was a UM pastor here in town. He moved last year to a place to get more UM training. I asked him once about the moral issues in the UM denomination, and his reply was that he stayed in because he did not want to lose his retirement benefits.

    Many years ago a friend's father who I thought was independent Baptist turned out to still have SBC membership. I asked him why and he, likewise, did not want to lose this retirement benefits. He died several years before he became old enough to enjoy retirement. If the choice is God or Mammon, choose God every time!

    We are living in a time where more and more "christians" are more interested to "fit in", and compromise, and try to rewrite what the Bible clearly Teaches.

    Sadly there are some in leadership who do this, and don't fully accept what the Bible says, as they even go as far as saying that on certain issues, the Bible has to be viewed differently, as times have changed! As with the Acts 29 Network

    When my dad was alive I would try to take him to church services, whoever would have us. We went to a Presbyterian church in which I read the following words in rainbow colors while walking through the door , "We are a progressive, inclusive community. You are welcome here." - Blacksburg Presbyterian Church which is a polite way of calling themselves a LGBT friendly church.

    A Presbyterian church? For me that was shocking and I never returned.

    I think so much of a success of any church depends on a good senior pastor.
