Homosexuality and the Christian Church

In today’s Christian churches there has come about a very controversial subject, one that has been developing for many years, and is now at the fore front of controversial issues dealing with the church. The issue at hand is homosexuality and the Christian church. This controversy has caused there to be a split between the church into two different beliefs, liberal and evangelical, which one is right and which and which one is wrong? Issues such as should homosexuals be aloud in the church? If so how involved should they be? And most importantly what does God have to say about homosexuality?

Because when one is caught up in sin, but not willing to change, they are in direct rebellion to God and a danger to the church.

This rule of the church not only applies to homosexuality, but to all sin. So those who smugly think homosexuality is a horrible sin worse than that of greed or spreading false rumors or being drunk, better think again. God has not changed nor has his response to all sin. No more, no less, he despises it, but desperately wants to help those who want his help: those who admit their sin and want to stop.
