Time to Re-write the Bible: Scripture DO Support Same-Sex Marriages….Claims A Female Baptist Pastor Married to a Female Bishop

Stories like this just put a smile on my face. I mentioned to someone that God created everybody in his/her own image so we all must embrace homosexuality. I was condemned to the hottest part of hell so is it surprising for a female Baptist pastor to marry a female Bishop and justify her actions with the same bible.

A Christian swingers website was also set up for Christian married couples to share and exchange partners and used the same bible to justify their adulterous actions…(forgetting the commandment – Thou shalt not commit adultery). It’s time to re-write the bible otherwise heaven will be empty.

According to the Christian Post, A fiery female Baptist pastor from Detroit shocked conservatives in her church and triggered a rift among the membership when she resigned after revealing she married a female bishop from Washington, D.C several months ago, charging that the Bible supports it.

Bishop Allyson D. Nelson Abrams was once married to a man and became the first female pastor of the Zion Progress Baptist Church.  Abrams, who is also a mother, revealed to the congregation she had pastored for five years that she was in love with Diana Williams, a bishop emeritus with the Imani Temple African-American Catholic Congregation in Washington, D.C.

She resigned after revealing her Sapphic nuptial to Williams, which took place in March in Iowa where same-sex marriage is legal.

She also resigned as secretary of the Council of Baptist Pastors of Detroit and Vicinity, an influential group of African-American Christians in metro Detroit. She stepped down as co-editor of the magazine of the Progressive National Baptist Convention as well, according to the report.

Abrams, who holds a doctorate degree in ministry and a degree in mechanical engineering from Howard University, shared scripture with the Detroit Free Press in arguing that homosexual relationships are allowable in Christian practice. She pointed to St. Luke 7:1-10 which speaks to the love a man has for his male servant.

“We all know that we’ve been made in God’s image, and so no matter what you look like, no matter who you are, no matter what your orientation is,” people should be free to love who they want, she explained.

“Love is something that’s supposed to be unconditional,” she explained. “And as Christians, if anybody is supposed to be loving, we are.”

She noted that her theology had evolved over the years and her concept of love and sexual orientation changed “a little over a year ago.”

“I progressed in my theology and came to the point where I would love whichever came to me. I wasn’t just open to (a specific) gender, I was open to love in whatever way the Lord would bless me,” she said.

She said she resigned because she didn’t want to cause a rift in the church, but she had already done that when she exchanged vows with Diana Williams in March and didn’t tell the church and some members found out what she had done before she made the Oct. 6 revelation. Some of the members she said supported her decision while others disagreed with her gay marriage.

“Bishop Abrams is a very intelligent, conscientious and progressive minister,” the Rev. Charles C. Adams, pastor of Hartford Memorial Baptist Church, noted in the report. “She has done a lot to people.

“She, herself did not seek to make this an issue,” he explained. “It was an issue that from my understanding was ignited by rumours and innuendos … somebody looking up the marriage certificate on the Internet.”

Other ministers were not as supportive.

Elder Levon Yuille, pastor of The Bible Church in Ypsilanti, dismissed gay marriage as “diametrically opposed to the teachings of the Bible,” and argued that Abrams should give up her lesbian relationship or stop teaching.

“To be in accordance with scripture, she would have to give up that type of homosexual lifestyle,” he said.

Abrams, however, maintains that she will continue teaching and doing what God called her to do.

“People have the right to interpret scripture whatever way they please,” said Abrams. “I respect difference of opinions. I’m still going to preach and teach and do what God has called me to do,” she said.

  1. Well, that is her belief & she has a right to it. We all can’t believe the same thing & that’s why there are different churches. If you disagree, don’t go to her church cos no one is forcing you. In any case, she’s not the only Christian who sees nothing wrong with being gay. The Episcopal Church & Presby Church USA all currently ordain gay/ lesbian pastors & more churches are changing. Even the pope said recently that who is he to judge gays/lesbians.

    • @maame ama, well said, life has changed and a lot has changed yet bible has remained what it is and has not taking into account the new phase of life. Most of the people I know live very parallel to the bible so until it is re-written, heaven will definitely be empty

  3. Reading articles like this only pushes me to hold onto ma Christian faith very well . God is the all-knowing creator of this world. He fore knew times like this ll come and so gave us the bible to direct us and keep us from going wayward. The fact that the world has gone mad doesn’t mean God has to change to meet our demands. He’s a rock and ll not change. Take the bible as it is or don’t touch it.

    • @nana yaa, my sister it is the same with articles such as tithing is wrong. THE END TIMES ARE NEAR. THIS IS UNBELIEVABLE….. Well, we have been warned to be alert and continue in prayers so that false teachings like these will not corrupt our beliefs and love for God. God have mercy. Hold on to your faith my sister, and do what is right and what your Bible tells you to do…..nothing more and nothing else. Be blessed.

  4. why is Christianity the only religion being forced to accept homosexuality? I don’t hear of Buddhists or Hindus or even Islam being challenged to accept Christianity. These are some of the thing that make me convinced that Christianity is the one and true religion. Christianity is a religion, you join by your own choice so if you cannot stand its doctrines just do as you please!

    • @ bella, i tot of what faith i would ‘ve belong to if i were a Saudi born. I’m sure i would ‘ve been a strong Muslim. That thought made me wonder if Christianity is true then i realised Christianity is the only religion in which the followers have been commissioned to preach the gospel to the ends of the world, Matthew 28.
      Jesus knew other religions and teachings will sprout up to try and confuse the the world and so asked us to go to the ends of the world and preach the truth. Now more than ever we Christians must arise and tell the world the true LIGHT is there to lead us to the right path. JESUS IS READY TO SAVE
