Gay identity, Christianity incompatible

church pewsEvangelical churches are the target of a new Human Rights Campaign promotion.

HRC, the largest and most funded homosexual activist organization, has released a new "Coming Home to Evangelism and to Self" guide for those who identify as LGBTQ Evangelical Christians. It encourages homosexuals to be open within their churches to convince other members to accept their lifestyle.

Peter LaBarbera of Americans for Truth About Homosexuality (AFTAH) says the evangelical Church is the last bulwark for truth.

"So basically they want to be rid of biblical influence in our culture," he submits. "The HRC report talks about allowing homosexual so-called Christians to 'fully live out their sexual orientation,' as they put it."

LaBarbera, PeterBut the Bible only affirms heterosexuality, which means the LGBT lobby is trying to convert Christians to desert Scripture. And LaBarbera insists that is something the Christ-filled Church cannot do.

“My advice to churches is to get back to the Bible and reach out to homosexual activists and people struggling with homosexuality with truth and love," the AFTAH president suggests. "Homosexual behavior is always wrong, cannot be practiced. You cannot embrace a so-called gay identity and call it Christian. That doesn't work. The two are incompatible."

What does work is God's Word, so LaBarbera further advises the Church to emphasize the many thousands of people who have left the homosexual lifestyle through Christ.
