Description

On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (10/22/20), Hank devotes his time to discuss a headline he saw on the front page of The Wall Street Journal this morning. The headline read as follows: “Pope Backs Civil Unions for Gay Couples.” While Pope Francis’ remarks chronicled in the article are not considered official papal teaching, they are problematic. He said, “Homosexuals have a right to be a part of the family. They’re children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out, or be made miserable because of it.” And as the pope famously said elsewhere, “Who am I to judge?” This is the head of the largest body of Christians in the entire world—If he can’t judge such matters rightly, who can? While the Bible makes plain that Christians are never to judge self-righteously or hypocritically, they are most certainly called to judge. And what that means with respect to same-sex sexuality and its various permutations, is the call to reject that which God clearly rejects.
