Pentecostals condemn US gay marriage ruling

Supporters celebrate the Supreme Court ruling in the US on Friday
Supporters celebrate the Supreme Court ruling in the US recently

The Pentecostal Assemblies of the West Indies wishes to add its voice to the increasing debate on the LBGT rights, and more specifically the legalizing of same-sex marriage by all 50 states of the U.S.

We at PAWI firmly believe that this recent ruling by the United States Supreme Court, or for that matter any ruling legalizing same sex marriage, does not and cannot alter or replace the infallible word of God.

The Bible recognizes marriage as a holy union between a man and a woman only, and any move to impose a law endorsing same-sex marriage upon a nation, is a move to endanger the belief of the church and violate the law of God.

Our position as an organization is that we profoundly condemn same-sex marriage, as it diametrically opposes the word of God. We believe that same-sex marriage is against the Divine plan for marriage and its purpose for procreation. Our organization promotes the family unit as a fundamental institution, where a mother and father, nurture children, instil faith, and inculcate moral strengths and spiritual values.

Thus, legalization of same sex marriage will destabilize the family unit and result in harmful consequences for the society at large.

We wish to make it clear that our opposition to same-sex marriage is in no way reflective of any kind of resent or hatred for persons who support this ideology, as this will be in stark contradiction to the very word of God which we uphold as the supreme authority governing our lives.

Rather, we continue to affirm our belief in love and respect for all humanity. PAWI stands in solidarity with all those who are courageous enough to oppose same-sex marriage within and outside the church.

As an organization, we commit ourselves to continually teach and endorse marriage between a man and a woman without compromise, as a central principle of our doctrine and practice.

    I intend to build a church house and at the front of the building the following will be relayed: No bugurers,No Lesbians, No unmarried couples, No fatherless child, no couple living together unmarried, No adulterers. How many people will I get to attend services. who are of no sin let him cast the first stone. America is the Police of the world and if you are not law abiding we got you.

  2. Moreover, if God gave humans free will, he can’t logically know everything; that would invalidate the possibility of free will –@Gabby July 28

    You write a lot of stupidity here, thinking that you are smart–but then again that is that attribute of mankind who is conformed to human wisdom and philosophy, the product of the brain, which you mentioned in that comment of yours bellow.

    What you do not know is that this attribute is not a quality of Life–the Life from God to man; you most certain are existing without this Life–Notice that I spell it with the upper case “L”

    In this world there are two sets of people–the spiritual man and the natural man–you are one of the natural man. “But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned. And he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one”

    See the rest below:

    • Your comment above, pertaining to “free will” is of pure ignorance–you don’t even know what is, if you are bringing the brain with it. The brain is not of spirit, but the mind and conscience is–the brain has no authority over the “mind” and “conscience”–which are the keys to man’s relation with God and visa versa–but in their state of renewal and Life.

      Conscience can be “dead” and the mind “carnal”–hence no communion with God.

      With free will comes the Law of “obedience” or “disobedience”–the choice is yours. To obey is to choose Life in all its glory and to disobedience is to choose death, the torments and darkness of the mind, which was never renewed at the right time.

      “Free will” is the reason you are who you are, you have made the choice, and pertaining to God, it is rejection or denial of His Word–the Message of Life in the Holy Bible–that too is disobedience; you have already judged yourself; God will render your verdict at His Judgment…

      Lol. I’m stupid, you claim (incidentally, I am not a man), yet you are the one who has provided nothing but gibberish. The brain is a material object. Consciousness is produced by the brain. Injure specific areas of the brain, and specific aspects of the mind and of consciousness are likewise impaired: facial recognition, memory, language acquisition, vocal patterns, etc. There is no evidence that there is any chance of a mind existing without the brain, since the “mind” is just a vague term for what the brain produces.

      Because of our genetics and upbringing, we have certain mental constraints. Not all humans are capable of reacting in certain ways in certain situations; we are predisposed to act in certain ways. Therefore, we are already not *really* free from the very beginning. But beyond this, it is simply illogical to believe that a deity can know everything that happens in the universe yet say we have free will. So he knew Adam would disobey him? Some freedom Adam had,…

    What rubbish. Children raised by same-sex couples are statistically just fine; indeed, lesbian couples rank highest in raising children to be healthiest, according to some polls. All this means is that good parents are good parents, and a family does not need to be a mother, father, and children. Single mothers often do just fine, as well, if they are able to financially manage. Besides, who are these Pentecostals to talk about stable families, when the Bible depicts more polygamous marriages than anything else? Polygamy–endorsed by your religious text–is far more likely to make a family unstable.

    And the world is changing for the better with more and more countries openly embracing human rights. We Dominicans can choose to remain ignorant religious fanatics, the laughingstock of the educated secular world, or we can choose the path of empathy, science, progress, and toleration of difference.

      We should choose to remain godly and righteous. The Bible, the Word of the Almighty God declares that Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach. And that is evident all around us. Please focus on the Word of the Heavenly Father and not what others accept or seek to justify as right.

      Hi Gabby, answer me this, you wanna be involved in same sex marriage but you wanna raise children produced by a man and a woman? how does that work. If you chose same sex marriage you have rejected children because same sex marriage cannot produce children.

      • Gabby
        July 29, 2015

        Firstly, I did not say I wanted to be in any kind of marriage at all, so I don’t know where that comment came in. Nonetheless, I don’t understand this question. Many same-sex couples adopt children–and there are lots of abandoned children who could use loving homes. Are all same-sex couples good parents? Nope–but that is true of any couple. And, again, there is no evidence I know of that same-sex parents raising children has any negative impact on children relative to heterosexual parents.

        However, there is very early science suggesting that same-sex couples may, in fact, be able to produce children via stem cell research. I have conflicted feelings about this, but it’s another possibility in the future, maybe.

        Once more your argument is moot, should heterosexual couples who cannot have children of their own due to infertility for example…what happens to them we should prevent them fro. Adopting. Or what about couples who chose not to have children, and go the adoption route instead?

    @Humanist, what is the origin of morality.? On what priciples do you place your morality? Can you pinpoint one lie or the like from the bible? Of course our thinking should not be imposed on others. Let the truth of the gospel convict. We are telling you our beliefs, you can ask why do we belive? But what should be done, when secular people and systems attempt to impose their thinking on us. When something which is evil, and unacceptable toour God made law, esp for those who live in these lands, at point does it not become the indivuals buisness?

    I THANK the Pentecostal Assemblies of the West Indies for publically taking a stand against the evil of homosexuality and releasing this statement denouncing the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States of America approving same sex “marriages” nation wide.

    I am ordained in the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada – a “sister” Fellowship to the Pentecostal Assemblies of the West Indies – and I can assure you that you do not stand alone.

    The Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada belongs to the World Wide Assemblies of God Fellowship which has over 67 million members who all believe the same Biblical doctrines and hold the same traditional values.

    My own ministry as an international evangelist – LIVING HOPE MINISTRIES – is recognized by the Government of Canada as a Private Foundation and accredited by the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada Western Ontario District as an Itinerate Ministry. We stand uncompromisingly for Biblical morality.

    Sincerely, Rev. Donald…

      tell us jamesd, you sound brilliant and we are the fools who need to be educated. How does the sinful actions of a pastor /priest? weigh in on the discussion of same sex marriage and the Biblical position on that issue? Does the sinful act of the Pastor/ Priest mean that we all have a license to commit sin and worst abomination. friend stick to the issue. Same Sex Marriage is a NO NO in the eyes of God and no law can make it right.

      • August 8, 2015

        God the Creator gave us only one model – one blueprint – for marriage in Genesis 2:21-24, and this was affirmed by Christ Himself in Matthew 19:4-6.

        The Bible calls sex outside a Biblical one man with one woman marriage ”fornication” which literally means illicit sex. It says ”Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body.” (1 Corinthians 6:18)

        People use different arguments to excuse their sins. Some say they are not Christians or they embrace a different belief system as if this places them beyond God’s laws. It does not. There is one God and one Bible (the Word of God) by which HE will judge us. The Bible says ”To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in light in them.” (Isaiah 8:20)

        Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Evangelist.

    • July 31, 2015

      If the pastor of a Pentecostal church has “affairs with multiple members of his congregation” does that mean that the Bible ceases to be the Word of God, two thousand years of church history is invalidated, and Christian morality is cancelled? Does it mean that 67 million Pentecostal members world wide no longer have a foundation for their faith?

      It should be noted that the World Wide Assemblies of God Fellowship has 67 million members. However, there are Pentecostal churches that have not yet become part of this larger body.

      However, there is a problem with your comment. If a pastor is found guilty of having one single affair, even if was a one time encounter, he would come under discipline. The pastor’s ministerial credentials would be suspended. He would not be transferred to another pulpit. He would be out of the ministry at least until there was evidence he had repented and been restored to grace. On the other hand he may never be reinstated.

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald…

  8. Regardless of what the world thinks there is no Life outside of a relationship with Jesus, the Christ, who told us: “I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life” John 14: 6

    Jesus also said to us: “Behold I stand at the door and knock, if anyone hears My Voice and opens the door, I will come in to eat with him and him with Me–there cannot be a deeper Love relationship than this.

    All who refuse to accept this have “judged themselves” God Almighty–through His Person, Jesus, the Lord–will render the verdict from the Judgment Seat.

    It is true that we all have sinned, but in Jesus Christ, by our faith and His blood–sin is justified. It is not that God wants us to continue in sin, it is that He wants us to grow out of our sinful nature, through mind discipline and training. Apostle Paul calls this “dying to sinful nature of the flesh, as we come to learn to live in the Spirit. This will only happen to us who desire to live our lives for God, in Jesus Christ.

    • Continuation from above

      God is about Family, and He has a “General Family” in this world; He has gathered us as the “Church”–not in one Church House but all over the world–He knows where we are.

      Apostle again, compares the marriage of men and women with the relationship between Jesus and His Church this what Paul says: @Ephesians 5: 25- 27:

      “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the Church and gave Himself for her, that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, that He might present her to Himself a Glorious Church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be HOLY and without BLEMISH”.

      Yes! ,Jesus is sanctifying and cleansing us–His Church–to become Holy and without blemish

      When a Nation of Power like the USA condones the conducts of homosexuals, to rule marriage on their behalf, that is the time we have to start being real concerned –really, really, concerned!

      • July 31, 2015

        President Obama has made a horrendous mistake.

        He has taken his nation out from under God’s protection.

        In Bible times when Israel turned away from God and trampled His laws under their feet first God would send His prophets to warn their leaders. When they refused to heed the prophets God would remove His protection and disaster in various forms would come. Instead of God prospering them the nation would go into decline. God would not give Israel victory over its enemies in times of war. Evil nations would be used to chastise Israel.

        America has lost its covering of protection. It is not alone. Other nations have thrown off the Biblical restraints that have served them well in the past to embrace Satan’s lies. The sky is growing dark. Tribulation days are fast approaching.

        You don’t have to be a prophet to understand these things. You only need to know the Word of God to know God’s ways.

      You have not yet realized that they are pushing their lifestyle ideology down our throats. You know very well that this so-called same sex marriage is legalized in many countries. They still want more and are adopting babies/children.
      They are free to do whatever they want with their life. They seem to forget that God who holds the key to life and death, gave them their life and He can take it away anytime He so wishes. They are defying God and ignoring what is contained in the Holy Bible.
      If they had kept their affair to themselves and not bring it out in the open and expect other people to condone them, we would not have this discussion. Their type of marriage is making a mockery of God who instituted marriage.
      So they brought it out in the open for all to know and see. Therefore, those who oppose them and know that their type of relationship is unnatural, have a right to speak up. God expects this of them and to defend traditional marriage and the family.

      If we are Christians our lives are not our own.

      It is written “… … ye are not your own… For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and spirit, which are God’s.” (1 Corinthians 6:19,20)

      Yes, God is the judge. He has also told us what the penalty for breaking this law is. Those who commit such sins will not “… … inherit the kingdom of God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9,10)

      But we bear good news. Those who believe in the Lord Jesus by trusting His death on the cross to put their sins away and receive Him as their personal Savior will be washed clean! When Paul wrote this letter to the congregation in Corinth he recognized that there were FORMER homosexuals in the church along with many who had been saved from other sins. That is why he wrote in verse 11 “And such WERE some of you. BUT ye are washed…” Read 1 Corinthians 6:9,10. Now read verse 11! And read 1 John 1:7.

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Evangelist.

      NO :!:

      People cannot do whatever they want.

      God has given to us His Word to live by. In the Word of God there are commandments we must obey.

      As long as the commandments of God remain on the page we do not have the option to obey or disobey.
      Of course you can disobey but if you do you “…shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” Please read 1 Corinthians 6:9,10.

      When people visit your country do you tell them it is their life? Do you tell them they can obey or disobey the laws? Evidently some homosexuals think this way without being told. A while back a gay cruise ship pulled in to the Dominica shore. Two male homosexuals came to the side of the ship and gave the public – men, women, and children – a free sex show by buggering each other in broad day light.

      Thankfully, they soon found out that the laws of Dominica applied to them.

      The laws of God also apply to each and every one of us.

    Our Children are being brutalize by adults and the moral fabric on which Christianity was founded is being violated right in our face and I do not hear the PAWI condemnation on these abuses in the mercenary way they are dealing with same sex marriage.
    Is this because the Evangelists no longer consider child abuse, stealing, cheating, fornication, corruption and the other abuses condemned by the Bible as sins? Why the focus on same sex marriages?
    Members of PAWI condemn and preach brimstone against those who support same sex marriages in the name of Jesus Christ. They profess themselves as followers of Jesus Christ. What do they imagine Jesus would tell them if he were here today.
    My question to Pentecostals and PAWI who condemn same sex marriage in the name of Jesus Christ :-” What would Jesus Christ say to those who want to practice same sex marriage?” Bearing in mind his position on the adulteress Mary Magdalene!

      Children are being brutalized not only in Dominica but in other nations. Adults are also being mistreated in various ways.

      In reply to your questions…

      Churches are against – and preach against – all these types of bad behavior. Unfortunately people still do these things and will until the end of time. It is the human condition.

      We are focusing on same sex marriage because nobody is trying to make these other sins legal and give them respectability. It has become necessary for those in Christian leadership to tell the public what God says about homosexuality in the Bible.

      What would Jesus Christ say to those who want to practice same sex marriage? He would tell them the same about marriage now as He told people when He was on earth. It is between a man and a

      • July 28, 2015


        Sorry. :oops: My computer malfunctioned.

        Last line of paragraph four should read: It is between a man and a women. Please read this in Matthew 19:4-6. Then Christ by the Holy Spirit moved the Apostle Paul to write 1 Corinthians 6:
        9-11. Please read these verses! Notice that Paul said in verse 10 and 11 that such people would NOT inherit the kingdom of God unless they are washed. When we receive Jesus Christ as our personal Savior as in John 1:11,12 and Revelation 3:20 He washes us clean in His blood! The Bible says “…the blood of Jesus Christ (God’s) cleanseth us from ALL sin.” (1 John 1:7)

        About Mary Magdalene. The Bible does not say she was an adulteress. It says Jesus cast seven demons out of her. Obviously she was in bad condition which was probably the result of her sinful life. But Jesus forgave and cleansed her. He gave her a new beginning. He will do the same for every one who receives Him.

      Many say it was Mary Magdalene. It was the sinner of Magdala. Do your research unless the research is also in error.
      OK! The sinner repented and became a holy woman. The homosexuals have not repented. They continue with their abomination, today, more so than ever. As the years progress, it will become worst.
      In order to be forgiven, one must cease their sinful ways. They must practice the faith, ask God forgiveness and repent with a humble and contrite heart. They must make an act of contrition with true repentance for their sins and perform penance and sacrifice in order for God to appease God that He might forgive them.
      While they have the promise of Our Lord Jesus Christ, they cannot assume that God has forgiven them. If Our Lord forgives them, they will never continue with their intrinsic lifestyle. This is how they will know they are forgiven. They will cease their sinful ways their abnormal/unnatural behavior which highly offends God.

    They have rights? What rights? The only right they have is to do as they please as anyone of us because God gave everyone a free mind and will which He will not touch. He allows us to either save ourselves or condemn ourselves.
    Guess what? When we die, we, ourselves, our souls will immediately know where we will go to for all eternity. This will be based on the type of lifestyle we lived in God and with God or not.
    Rights originated from God but not rights to do what they are doing. No one is dictating to them how to use their God-given rights which they are abusing.
    God gave us directives to follow until eternity which will determine our eternal destiny, Heaven or Hell. This is not determined by politicians and their legislation of so-called same sex.

      How brain-washed you sound. God gave us free will? lol. Firstly, it’s not even clear, from a neuroscientific perspective that ‘free will’ even exists, since it is quite possible to interpret our brain, from whence consciousness is produced, as a kind of biological machine. Some philosophers and neuroscientists believe that free will is little more than an illusion.

      Moreover, if God gave humans free will, he can’t logically know everything; that would invalidate the possibility of free will. Christians love throwing around these words–free will, omniscience–without seemingly realising that they are logically incoherent attributes. A god that knows the future can’t give anyone free will.

      And what saddens me the most is how you people condemn an entire class of humans for nothing more than a book that you could not prove was true in a court of law. At least the science of homosexuality and transgenderism is getting somewhere and is based on, you know, facts, unlike your…

      • September 2, 2015


        I know you want to appear educated and would like to shame Evangelical Christians for believing the Bible as if we are behind the times and out of touch with the latest science of the day.

        Your mindset can have detrimental effects on those who adhere to it so I feel obligated to address it.

        Have you read CREATION by my friend the late Grant Jeffrey. Ph.D., ? Grant attended one of our Pentecostal churches in Toronto (Church on the Queensway).

        You write as if homosexuality and transgenderism have a lot of science on their side.

        Have you read Homosexuality and the Politics of Truth by Jeffrey Satinover. M.D.?

        Did you know one Ontario study showed 45% of transgendered people have attempted suicide? A Swedish study involving 324 transgendered people from 1973 to 2003 found that
        ten years after their change transgender people committed suicide at a rate 20 times that of
        non trans individuals.

        John Hopkins University’s Gender Identity Clinic was among the first in the States to perform sex changes. However, once it became clear that sex-reassignment surgeries were doing nothing to correct the underlying psychological problems of the patients, the clinic ceased the practice.

        The science of today sometimes becomes the heresy of tomorrow. One only needs to look at how often the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (the psychiatrists’ Bible) has been changed reflecting a flip-flop in their “scientific” thinking! As in the case of homosexuality (1973) it is not always because of new knowledge but sometimes it is political.

        We (Christians) have found it safer to stay with the scriptures. For example we stand by what Christ Himself said in Matthew 19:4-6 and the Apostle Paul in Romans 1:26,27.

    We must be reminded of what St. Paul said, “Nothing defiled will enter Heaven.”
    Lead your life but do not include the world in it and expect that they are obligated to approve, applaud, encourage you and shake hands with you.
    God has spoken and it is prohibited that people of the same gender should be married; have no right to be married.
    What marriage anyway? It is abnormal. Their relationship can never be considered equal to heterosexual couples. There is no comparison and never will.
    Can those people not see that? Their eyes are veiled that they cannot see the truth and light.

    Christians and genuine practicing ones at that know, that type of relationship is wrong and is not what God meant for the human race. These Christians will never condone it.
    These people ignore the Word of God and with their political supporters of all, they ignore what God, the Holy Spirit told us through the disciples, as contained in Holy Scripture.
    God has spoken. His Words are Final until we die. He will never rescind them.
    These people have caused division in the world and right in their own country. If they choose to live such an intrinsically evil lifestyle, they will bear the consequences. I feel sorry for them for what is to come if they do not change and conform their life to The Most Holy Will of God.

    Jesus destroyed sodom and gommorah for this very cause. Homosexuality is an abomination. Saying there are other sins does not make homosexuality any less of a sin. Jesus said marriage is one man and woman according to genesis. But through media and other means homosexuality has been desentized among people. In movies they were the smartest, funniest best characters. Look at the genetic make up of a person, look at the gametes. Now people don’t beat an eyelash at their presence. Why is there this distinction of X and Y chromosomes.
    But these people are rigt
    ht on one thing. Fornication, adultery, idolatry, and all unrighteousness is still sin. But God’wrath was poured out upon the son of man upon that cross, today through his blood, the ultimate display of love we are made righteousness.

He is not the lovey dovey as some try to make him out to be like thats all he is, he is God, justice, vengeance, holiness also belongs to him…. compassion and merciful is not the complete package.

      Some of you are misled. You also misinterpret Holy Scriptures according to your mentality and lifestyle. Pray to God for enlightenment.
      While God is impartial, He will judge everyone according to their sins. There are some sins that are so atrocious they may never be forgiven.
      Prior to dying, we must ask God forgiveness. No one knows what transpires between God and the dying – souls.
      We cannot take God for granted and say that He will forgive us and when we are good and ready without making amends to Him. God cannot be deceived.
      Every minute – day we are to ask God forgiveness and vow never to offend him anymore.
      We cannot go to Heaven on our own merit, without earning it.
      Our Lord Jesus Christ told us of the conditions for obtaining Heaven. This is because He died for us but we will not merely enter Heaven while sinning on this earth and offending Him.
      Read The New Testament. Commence with Matthew, Mark, Luke and John – The Four Gospels.

    Last time I checked , all these religious institutions are all about making money . They quote all this stuff from the bible that is totally false and people constantly drink the kool aid . Please tell me what progressive thing all these groups do for the poor except a soup kitchen here and there . The legalization of same sex marriage in the US was all above benefits from the Government. I don’t think that they care one bit about the religious aspect of this . Life is short ! Live and let live !

      Christian churches and ministries are building, staffing, and operating schools, orphanages, hospitals, clinics, hostels for AIDS victims, rehab centers, and conducting rescue operations to save girls and women from the sex trade. They are digging wells to provide clean water. All this to the tune of multiplied millions of dollars each year.

      The money for all these charitable works comes from Christians who know who the money is going to and how it will be used. I know this because my own denomination – the Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada – is on the front lines of service to needy and suffering men, women, and children around the world, and is a leader in this work. Other Christian organizations are doing basically the same works, some more, some less.

      The money dolled out and the benefits provided by the government comes from the tax payers. It is your money. You really don’t know where it goes.

        Rev. Donald Hill, I am going to go on a tangent like you do and state this; I have been hearing over the years the evangelicals having evidence of a gay agenda, but I have not been able to find it. What I have been able to find is a group of same gender loving people that have decided that they are going to stand up for their rights, and as far as I can see they have been doing so – successfully. May I suggest that if you have legal minds that could prove the validity of the bible in court and to change to be the constitution of the world, then all of this arguments and discussion that we are having now would end.
        The only problem that I see is that every christian denomination would have a different interpretation of it. and the world will be sent back to the dark ages.

        Sir our job is not to proof the bible, defending it is like defending a lion, just let it out, the bible is able to stand for itself. People say many things, prove the bible, do it without using the bible. They even make claim of science, observe, recreate ect fundamentals. Can Napoleon and his battle be proved scientifically? The bible is the highest authority. It is not just one book, but 66 reliable books written by the eyewitness and eyewitnesses of the eyewitness’s. It is precise, some people make straight forward predictions and think it profesy, but the bible has specific prophesys which each has been fullfilled, apart from future ones. Its not a coolection of books like everyother documentary out there written by man, its breathed out from YHWH.
        People love trying to find craks which do not exist, it cohesive. Every gospel points to the same conclusion, there are no contradictions in this collection, this very one which God speaks to man today.

    • @faceup July 27, 2015

      You are right on point–the idea of religion in a person will not be able to “PROVE IT”–that homosexuality is an offense in the eyes of God.

      And do you know why? It is because religion is not about God; it is the work of religious believers like the people of the Supreme Court of the USA and those who continue to condone to the conduct of Homosexuality–who or whatever they are.

      Soon after Jesus ascension into Heaven, He sent Holy Spirit, through whom He would be able to build His Church, as He disciplined and trained the mind of believers to receive Salvation– Life in Love, and Reconciliation, to the Holiness of God Almighty–.from which man became disbanded because of sin

      But what did man continue to do? He continued to remain conformed to his lifestyle of religion–even Christians themselves. All have based their worship to God on the grounds of religion–but God said that they are worshipping Him in vain. Mark 7: 6-7

      There is no need to prove in religion because it is based on belief and faith. The issue with human nature is that they were given all things to become children of the most high but because they are rebellious they cannot connect to the divine.
      There is a source of light and bliss but if we focus on the issues that are contrary to natural and divine laws of the universe we cannot enjoy the things that are freely given to those who believe. I dont think it is a matter of religion but your conviction that there is someone or some energy greater than yours and if you are disconnected you will not benefit.

        So, Reformer, you are willing to make absolute statements about ‘divine laws of the universe’ in one breath and say ‘there is no need to prove in religion because it is based on belief and faith’ in another? You cah be serious. If you admit you can’t prove religious claims but merely believe them based on faith, which means on no evidence–that is what faith is–then what is the difference between your religious claims and a person who believes that it is a divine law to support LGBT people? You can’t prove that person wrong, after all.

        What say you? Or were you kidding about that proof part? What makes your religion better than anyone else’s, if there’s no proof involved?

      • August 8, 2015


        I appreciate the your comment.

        Many people reject the Bible not for academic reasons or because of ”science” but for moral reasons. They enjoy their sins too much to let the Bible get in their way. If they said they believed the Bible they know they would be expected to live by God’s moral code and that they are not ready to do.

        It is easier for them to mock the belief in God and scorn the Bible. It is interesting though that these ”commentators” are the most unscientific of them all! They have no objectivity and show a total lack of logic.

        There are things in the Bible that cannot yet be either proven or disproven and this is where faith comes in. But other things have been scientifically proven.

    It is obvious that that the gay community owns and dominates the air waves ..a very few dominating the dicourse and dominates their position of a very claear agenda to allow an obvious styrange indulgence of sex organs placed in areas that clearly GOD did not preccribe .
    THE GAY AGENDA IS A SEX agenda with no completion towards procreatrion which indeed is the ultimate in love making for which DM AND EVE was born
    As the illformed of humanity a small minority of mankind with a large space of propaganda attck the heterosexuals who legitmately represent civilization through procreatrion we are forced to accept their hysteria and power based agendas.
    clearly as in Africa and the Caribbean we are different .we respect our god ordained reponsibility for human purpose ..not unadulterated sex for pleasure only ,,,now that we have got to this frontier of man on man etc do we now enjoy our dogs as well ?

    • @ CLARITY July 27, 2015 “procreatrion which indeed is the ultimate in love making for which DM AND EVE was born”—-

      Not sure what your point is in that whole comment of yours above. But I noticed that even if your wrote DM, you are speaking about “ADAM” except that you claimed they were “born”

      That is the kind of misunderstanding of God’s Word–the Message of Life in the Bible–which has the world living upside down, and doing all the things which they think is right, not what God has said is right.

      Adam and Eve were never born, this means that they had no “mother” and no “father”–only the Father of Spirit and Truth–God Almighty Himself Right here we have to ask ourselves what was the real plan of God for reproduction of mankind?

      God created the “physical” Adam through the dust of the ground–to demonstrate His Image– and He breathed Life into that “physical” structure–the conduct the Likeness of Him, which is Love in all its perfection.

      • @CLARITY July 27, 2015 Continued

        God would continue His reproduction of mankind through Adam and Eve by His concept of reproduction–man still doesn’t know what that concept was; that is the reason the apostle Paul tells us that Genesis 2: 24 “Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother an be joined to his wife, and they shall become one flesh”. Paul says it is a mystery at Ephesians 5: 31

        Actually it was not God who said this, as the message tells us; “Adam said”, However, God’s plan for reproduction of mankind, would happened between man and woman –male and female–this plan was defiled through the sinful disobedience of Adam and Eve. We, their offspring entered this world with that sinful and dead condition.

        Sexual conducts, between two men or two women, was never a part of God’s plan, in that His Love and Holiness was for His Likeness in man–there is nothing about of Love and Holiness in that conduct–it is the desire of the flesh completely.

      And what’s this nonsense about procreation? What does same-sex marriage have to do with procreation, since the overwhelming majority of humans are heterosexual or at least bisexual and can and will procreate? What, you think this near-overpopulated world is running out of humans and needs procreation?

    I am looking forward to equally strong statements condemning the covering up of sexual abuse of children. Gay adults make a choice to disobey the word of God and adopt a certain lifestyle with other adults and live with the consequences, as do those committing fornication and adultery.

    Peadophiles however deliberately chose to have sex with children, who cannot consent and whose innocence is stolen for ever. They have a corrupt desire and an antisocial personality. THey will not stop and usually abuse many children.

    The church needs to speak out on this issue. Be tough on their own. report abuse, support victims as they go through the courts and the journey of recovery and PROTECT CHILDREN

    • July 28, 2015

      We do speak out against sexually abusing children just as we speak out against homosexuality.

      Did you know there are homosexual lobby groups working to have the age of consent lowered and in some cases eliminated? One such organization had as their motto “Sex by eight or it is too late.” (They may have been forced to drop this motto.) One gay organization publishes its own official magazine. One particular month the issue was devoted entirely to the beauty of man – boy (pedophilia) sex, and why it should be legal.

      There are people working to have pedophilia declared an “orientation”. Some pedophiles say they have always been that way. Some psychiatrists say they cannot change. Does this sound familiar? If pedophilia is legally declared an “orientation ” it cannot be discriminated against.

      Continued …

      • July 28, 2015

        Continuation …

        Those who advocate for homosexuality tell us most pedophiles are straight males. Of course! This is because most males are straight. Between 3% and 4% of the population is homosexual. There are more straight males so naturally more of any crime will be committed by them. However, a homosexual pedophile will molest more boys in his lifetime than a heterosexual pedophile will girls. My own research has shown me pedophiles who have molested 100 and more, up to 200 and over 300 boys or young men under the age of consent.

        Rest assured the Bible believing evangelical churches with their pastors and evangelists are already fully engaged in the battle against sexual child abuse. It is being fought within the larger context of the war against sexual perversion. The Pentecostal Assemblies of the West Indies are an example of this.

    I always find it odd that with all the ills wrong in society, legalization of same sex sex marriage is the only thing getting attention from the church. What about corruption by our leaders, child abuse and adultery? Why doesn’t the church take a stand against these things?

    “we commit ourselves to continually teach and endorse marriage between a man and a woman without compromise, as a central principle of our doctrine and practice.” It is well within your right to preach that, but always remember not all of us belong to your organization, some of us think other wise, so why then impose this belief on the rest of us? You can oppose same-sex marriage within your church, but outside your church you have no say.

I strongly believe that people should be able to do as they please, granted that it’s between consenting adults and that their acts do not adversely affect others and society by extension.

        You say that God has a plan of salvation for the human race, I am sure you want to be saved, that’s your prerogative. I on the other hand, don’t want to be saved by anyone, especially the GOD of the bible. Quote as much as you want from the bible, it means nothing to me.

        As a man lives so shall he die.
        And there shall he be
        for the countless ages of eternity.

        We believe there is one way and only one way to heaven. That is by and through our Lord Jesus Christ who said “…I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father but by me.” (John 14:6)

        On the cross at Calvary He took the guilt of our sins upon Himself and suffered the punishment we should have borne throughout eternity. Seven hundred years before the birth of Christ the prophet Isaiah wrote “All we like sheep have gone astray. We have turned every one to his own way. But the Lord hath laid upon him the iniquity of us all.” (Isaiah 53:6)

        Now salvation is free to all those who believe in Him. It is written “…Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved.” Read Ephesians 2:8,9.

While we are taught in God’s word to love all, we must let the world, and these people in power that God’s word is being violated. In the Old Testament entire nations were destroyed for these same violations of His word. We have to thank our Redeemer Jesus Christ for standing between His Father and us today. Had it not been for the blood of Christ I believe we would not be here wondering what next. Let us who are waiting for His return stay ready.

      Thank you! Truer words were never spoken. “Even so come Lord Jesus.” (Revelation 22:20)

      The leaves are on the fig tree. The long winter of sin is almost over. Summer is nigh. Soon HE shall appear. In a moment we will be gone.

      “For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.” (Matthew 24:21)

      Those who have rejected the Word of God to pursue their own lusts mock our simple entreaties and scorn the gospel invitation just as the Sodomites mocked Lot and fed the flames. But soon the door of faith will be closed on the Gentile nations.

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Evangelist.

      Our Lord called the devil the ruler of the earth and the father of lies. Some of them were baptized practicing Christians and from good Christian homes. What happened? Bad company corrupts.
