Should Christianity allow Homosexuals/Gays to be active in church leadership?

Christians follow the bible and wouldn't want any of these to types of people to lead their church or be a active part of church leadership.

-A serial killer
-A serial bank robber
-A serial rapist
-A person that openly cheats on their spouse
-A person that continually beats the spouse
-A serial burglar
-A person that practices bestiality
-A Child molester
-Atheist
-Practices witchcraft

No church would ever allow these types to lead their churches.

So why do gays think they should be accepted and be active in ministry and have gay members in church unrepentant of their lifestyle, knowing what the bible says about homosexuality.

While these types should be accepted to come in the church, they should also expect to hear the Gospels preached and that they need to change their lifestyles and follow Christ, his commandments and the bible. You cant preach a gospel of forgiveness and repentance if you are openly living in sin.

So why do gays think they are exempt from this if all of forms of sin and immorality aren't accepted in the church, yet alone be part of leadership????

Great post and great thread. Sadly, the gays are blind to these things. There are even devils, Nettiebelle, who claim that God, the church and the Bible are lying on folks who choose the gay sin.

The gays are going to be mighty quiet on this one since you have basically put their abominable lifestyles on blast and how they disrespect the word of God daily.

They have nothing to say on this matter, because they know they cant use the bible to justify their position.

The body of Christ ..is the church ..and they are made up of members who have been washed clean and sanctified by Holy Spirit

any practicer of sin..which means breaking Gods law. if not repentant is to be removed from the fellowship...

God will judge those outside. "Expel the wicked person from among you."

I would imagine most homosexuals, if open about their homosexuality, usually attend churches that are not opposed to them being there or being in leadership positions. I have never even known of a homosexual attending any church I have been in. Most folks, homosexual or heterosexual, do not bring their sex lives into public light for all church members to review. Unless an unmarried couple is living together, I have never known an unmarried couple to declare to the church if they are sexually active either. They may tell the pastor in private for counseling reasons, but that is not for public review.

Do you actually know any homosexuals in person who are vying for leadership positions in a church that opposes this? Or, is this something you have read somewhere? If you read it somewhere, can you post a link so the rest of us can see the background and complete story to this?

God is very clear ..he says ' don't mix in company with any brother who is a fornicator greedy person or an idolater...So its not a matter of having them in your church gatherings ..they are to be expelled from such gatherings...in fact scripture tells us..a little leaven ferments the whole ...

The churches today have compromised Gods word..and become polluted ....because God says Christians are to be a ..Holy nation a royal Priesthood..to declare abroad the excellencies of the one that has brought us into his wonderful light.'

and what fellowship does light have with darkness'?

They will remain silent on this because it exposes them and their sexual immorality!!

Revelation 21:8
8 But the cowardly, the unbelieving, the vile, the murderers, the sexually immoral, those who practice magic arts, the idolaters and all liars—they will be consigned to the fiery lake of burning sulfur. This is the second death.”

No responses from any of them yet....hmmmmmm, i wonder why??

When you let the bible speak for itself and take away man's opinion, things go silent.
