(Worthy News) - Southern Baptist leaders have spoken out about this past weekend’s Revoice Conference for LGBT Christians. Many are concerned and ‘troubled’ by the conference, while others think it may bring about an important conversation.

The Revoice Conference, which met this past weekend in St. Louis, defines itself as “Supporting, encouraging, and empowering gay, lesbian, same-sex-attracted, and other LGBT Christians so they can flourish while observing the historic, Christian doctrine of marriage and sexuality.”

Albert Mohler, President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, said of Revoice:

“It is encouraging that they state their intention to hold to a biblical understanding of sexual behavior and to define the only appropriate expression of sexual behavior to be marriage as the union of a man and a woman,” the Baptist Press quotes, “‘But that said, it appears they're trying to create a halfway house" between cultural norms and biblical morality "that is inherently unstable. There is no way that faithful Christians can celebrate an unbiblical sexual orientation and claim to be faithful to Scripture… The moment you begin identifying as an LGBTQ+ Christian, you've created an unstable identity." Humans "have a pattern of sexual attraction, but for Christians, our ultimate identity must be in Christ.’” [ Source: Christian Headlines (Read More...) ]

  1. Diversity and tolerance ? Marriage between man and woman, that is TRUE diversity and tolerance. Those who condone sexual acts between two of the same sex do not uphold truth.

  2. We are to separate ourselves and be unspotted from the world. Why even acknowledge these people. I can call myself a football player... Does that make me one? They do not "Die to self" and take up they're cross to follow CHRIST. They want to have their sin and live it also. I have no patients for those that "Willfully" sin to try and grieve other Christians.

  3. Why is it so important to a LGBT to call yourself a Christian when you have no interest in following Christ. The Author and Finisher of THE WORD itself. Christians are to be followers of Christ, THE LIVING WORD. Self deception will not bring you into eternal life in Christ. Why such striving for false hope. Might as well make up your own religion and be done with it. May God be gracious to you and open the eyes of your understanding to The Truth. And may the Fear of The Lord overcome the ones in authority in these churches who drag many down to destruction.
