-American Church on the ‘Wrong Side of History’ When it Comes to Homosexuality?

by Dr. D ~ June 27th, 2012

1ano8

Bible believing Christians in America are continually being told that they are on the ‘wrong side of history’ when it comes to homosexuality. However, most evangelical Bible believing Christians would rather be on the ‘wrong side of history’ than on the wrong side of almighty God.

Make no mistake about it, whether we want to ignore it or not traditional Christian beliefs are not only being challenged but are increasingly being characterized as bigoted, hateful, and tantamount to being ‘evil’ and immoral in the rapidly changing dominant culture in America and the world when it comes to homosexuality.

The liberal main-stream Christian denominations have already turned their backs upon Biblical teaching long time ago and have joined in the current cultural call to champion homosexuality, gay clergy, and same-sex marriage. Many liberal Christian teachers have even referenced some of the teaching of Jesus including the Golden Rule to back up their support for the inclusion of the homosexual lifestyle into their ‘Christian’ community.

In the process, these Christians are maintaining that the Biblical scriptures opposing homosexual relations were merely culturally based and not a clear representation of where God really stands. They maintain that some of the more inclusive teachings of Jesus trump those ancient prejudices.

However, this is not the first time that the faithful church has been on the ‘wrong side’ of a dominant culture when it comes to homosexuality.
