Pope kisses the hand of, concelebrates mass with pro-homosexual activist priest

Prophecy Sign:  The Apostate Church - Sexual sin

Jesus Christ was absolutely unambiguous when he warned the ancient Asia church of Thyatira not to become involved in sexual immorality that was being taught to them by an evil 'Jezebel' who considered herself to be a prophet with a direct line to God, (nothing could be further from the truth). Jesus warned that he would deal with Jezebel personally unless she repented of her ways.

Nevertheless, I have this against you: You tolerate that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophet. By her teaching she misleads my servants into sexual immorality and the eating of food sacrificed to idols. I have given her time to repent of her immorality, but she is unwilling. So I will cast her on a bed of suffering, and I will make those who commit adultery with her suffer intensely, unless they repent of her ways. Revelation 2:20-22 NIV

The bible, (God's very own words), makes it abundantly clear just what constitutes sexual immorality, and what the consequences of that sin are:

Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 NIV

The current Pope, and all those church leaders, (even in Evangelical churches), who are ditching long held biblical doctrine for political correctness had better take the warning of Jesus Christ very seriously.  If you begin to teach your flock that there is nothing wrong with homosexuality and transgenderism, you are on the wrong side of biblical teaching and in the direct line of fire for judgement from Christ.

Unfortunately this issue will not go away, and is very likely to get much worse to the point that many churches in the coming years will be torn apart, as the divide between the progressive/liberal elements of the Evangelical church clash with those that hold to the biblical doctrine that homosexuality is dead wrong and a grievous sin against God and his creation.

Pope kisses the hand of, celebrates mass with pro-homosexual activist priest
Pope Francis raised eyebrows earlier this month by celebrating Mass with and kissing the hand of a leading homosexual activist priest campaigning for changes in the Church’s teaching on homosexuality. On May 6, Francis received the 93 year-old priest who has cofounded the homosexualist activist organization, Agedo Foggia, that is opposed to Catholic Church teaching. Fr. (Don) Michele de Paolis concelebrated Mass with Pope Francis at the Domus Santa Martha and then presented the pontiff with gifts of a wooden chalice and paten and a copy of his most recent book, “Dear Don Michele - questions to an inconvenient priest”. In a previous book, Don Michele wrote, “homosexual love is a gift from (God) no less than heterosexual.” He also disparaged the idea of homosexual couples not having sex.

Transgendered priest to give sermon at Washington National Cathedral
The most visible Episcopal church in the U.S. is hosting its first openly transgender priest this month. The Rev. Cameron Partridge is set to give the June 22 sermon at the Washington National Cathedral in Northwest. Dean of the cathedral, the Rev. Gary Hall, said in a statement that he hopes Mr. Partridge’s presence sends a message of support for the transgender community. “We at Washington National Cathedral are striving to send a message of love and affirmation, especially to LGBT youth who suffer daily because of their gender identity or sexual orientation,” he said. “We want to proclaim to them as proudly and unequivocally as we can: Your gender identity is good and your sexual orientation is good because that’s the way that God made you.” 

Methodists Fear Split as Denomination Reaches Homosexuality Impasse
Leaders of the United Methodist Church will gather in Florida on Wednesday to discuss church business; the church’s stance on homosexuality will likely be a hot button issue. The issue has been an area of discussion in the congregation for 10 years, but recent events have lead some members to fear a schism as the denomination reaches an impasse between the church doctrine and scripture. “It’s distressing to me that we’re still focusing on minor issues, same-sex, homosexuality,” said Rev. John Hill of the Suntree United Methodist Church. “Others many feel different, but the real issues the Jesus called us to confront are feeding the hungry, clothing the naked and not necessarily this issue. It’s maybe important but not essential.” Hill is one of hundreds of pastors who signed a petition urging the church to remain unified and respect others’ opinions on homosexuality reports USA Today.
