Unmasking Crafty Policies In The LGBT Documents From The NAD, NUC, Andrews University

Unmasking Crafty Policies In The LGBT Documents From The NAD, NUC, Andrews University

Published on Oct 16, 2015

NAD, Andrews University, and others state that “Non-practicing gay persons should be welcomed into membership and church office.” How would the pastors and the evangelists know who are the non-practicing homosexuals, before baptism? Do the pastors and the evangelists want the non-practicing homosexuals to confess their inclinations to homosexuality to them? If the pastors and evangelists should say that they have no desire to have such confessions made to them, then there was no need for the 21-page document. It might be the case that some of these professed non-practicing homosexuals are baptized and voted into leadership positions in the church. It is a possibility that the non-practicing homosexuals will change their statuses and begin to practice sodomy. It is also a possibility that the pastors and elders would not be notified of the changes in statuses. By those subtle steps, there will be practicing homosexuals in the church overtly and covertly. If the majority of them remain in secret practicing sodomy, while in leadership positions in the church, what has the 21-page position paper accomplished? Nothing. Therefore, we have come full circle, in the sense that there most likely are practicing homosexuals occupying membership and leadership positions presently in the churches, according to the voted guidelines at the summit conference in Cape Town, South Africa, by the GC governing body. What happens if the non-practicing homosexuals change their statuses to practicing homosexuality, while being members in leadership positions? The following might be the result. “NUC leadership says it would strongly advise against any steps to revoke the membership of LGBTI people.” NAD states, “We strongly affirm that homosexual persons have a place in the Seventh-day Adventist Church.”
