Clear Translation

Vatican

The Vatican has released a draft report on family issues that will be presented to bishops for a vote. The report has caused some alarm among conservative bishops because it seems to contain some language that would lead people to believe that Roman Catholicism is now accepting homosexual behavior. This would be a drastic departure from Catholic doctrine, which has always held a Scriptural position on this issue.

When the English translation of the report was first made available, conservatives were enraged by the tone of acceptance toward homosexual behavior. Therefore, an effort has been made to come up with a translation that would not undermine long-held Catholic teachings on this hot-button issue.

It will be interesting to follow this story as it unfolds.

It’s good to know that there is no confusion about what the Bible says about homosexual behavior. Every translation that stays true to the original text clearly and consistently forbids such behavior.

In this rebellious world in which we live, we would do well to remember that.

“All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.”—2 Timothy 3:16-17.

    It is, as you say, a hot button issue. It’s just sad to see it become that in our churches today. Our position should be absolutely clear. Are you also following what the Senior Pastor at Hillsong is saying on the issue?(I cant remember his name, sorry) He also seems to be waffling somewhat about it.

      Thanks for your comment. I’m not familiar with the Hillsong pastor. I hope he, and all of them, remain steadfast. The only way we can love people is to be truthful with them.
