No! No! One hundred times no! It is incompatible with Christianity to be engaging in homosexual “marriage” or homosexual sex. There is no such thing as a homosexual Christian. It is as incompatible as calling yourself a lying Christian, a stealing Christian, a drug addict Christian, a fornicating Christian, or a porn addict Christian. Sure, if a Christian sins, he/she can repent of their sin and receive forgiveness and the grace to overcome future temptation. That is entirely different than committing to marry oneself to constant unrepentant sin. This is why homosexuality and Christianity are incompatible.
Soccer star Abby Wambach and Christian blogger Glennon Doyle Melton announced the news via Instagram on May 15, by posting a photo of the couple on their “wedding” day.
Melton left her husband and father of her three children in 2016, after he committed adultery on her. She quickly began her romantic relationship with Wambach and was married not long after.
In another snapshot, the 36-year-old retired athlete wore a “Christian Mommy Blogger’s Wife” sweatshirt.
Melton, gushed over her new “wife” on her Instagram page. “My beloveds – please never give up on love. Life could surprise the hell out of you,” she wrote. “Trust me – you might just wake up one morning and find yourself smack dab in the middle of heaven. I love my wife. LOVE WINS.”
Love did not win. Lust won. Most people know Christian means “follower of Christ” and we follow the Bible and its teachings. Perhaps Christian blogger Melton tore out the page of her Bible that includes Romans 1 which states, “Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth about God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator—who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural sexual relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed shameful acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their error.”
Or maybe Melton spilled some coffee on the pages of 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 which warns, “Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals […] will inherit the kingdom of God.” (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)
Wambach, Melton and Melton’s husband who allegedly committed adultery need to repent of their sins and find freedom. God reminds us of His ability to set us free from homosexuality and all sexual sin in the following verses: “Such WERE some of you; (homosexuals, adulterers, etc) but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.” (1 Corinthians 6:11)
Praise God He offers us a new life and victory over temptation! We have all been in the “such WERE” camp and needed His mercy. Let’s all pray Wambach and Melton join us in the “such WERE” camp really soon. Until then, Melton would do the body of Christ a real favor by dropping the name “christian” from her christian blogger job description.
