Over the last 30 years, more and more SDA pastors and theologians who have taken time to study this topic have concluded that we have have thought the Bible was saying regarding LGBT has been misunderstood. Sometimes we simply cannot read the English language Bible with the cultural influences of today and take it “just as it reads”.
Just this Sabbath one of the Sabbath School classes at the Loma Linda University Church will be studying and discussing this topic in an effort to better understand it and support LGBT Adventists.
Being “gay” is NOT a lifestyle any more than your being heterosexual is. There is no single gay lifestyle. Some gay people are married. Some are single. Some are dedicated Christians and attend church regularly. Some have felt so judged by Christians that they have sadly turned their backs on Christianity. The NAD has published a paper affirming that and encouraging parents to be kind to their LGBT children.
Unless you have given very careful study to this topic, please be careful in how quickly you judge and condemn something that, in fact, you don’t understand as well as you think you do.
