U.K. Bishop Tells Gays to Change and Repent
Ahead of a divisive week facing Anglicism in the U.K., an outspoken senior Church of England bishop stressed the importance of the church returning to its Biblical teachings and holding true the foundational values that Christianity represents such as marriage between a man and a woman and that homosexuality is sinful and needs to be repented of.
He said, "The Bible’s teaching shows that marriage is between a man and a woman. That is the way to express our sexual nature"
We welcome homosexuals, we don’t want to exclude people, but we want them to repent and be changed.
"We welcome homosexuals, we don’t want to exclude people, but we want them to repent and be changed."
However he did not single out homosexuality in his remarks, by adding that "it is not just homosexuals who need to repent, but all who have strayed from the Bible’s teaching.
A new coalition of evangelical and Anglo-Catholic parishes will be established tomorrow with the support of Dr Nazir-Ali. They plan to return to Biblical foundational teachings which many hope will bring about Christian revival in a country that has strayed from its traditional Christian heritage.
