[1] Free Church of Scotland (Continuing) Makes Statement on Sexuality

Press Release – 15/06/11

The Free Church of Scotland (Continuing) have authorised the release of a statement affirming and asserting that the Holy Scriptures clearly teach us that Our Creator has given mankind the gift of sexuality for His glory, for the comfort of man and woman, for the procreation of godly seed, to fulfil the creation mandate and raise up godly seed to prepare a people for Himself to all eternity. This union is only to be expressed within the bounds that Scripture prescribes and any transgression of these bounds will earn His just judgement.

In particular:

1. All sexual relations outside the institution of the marriage of one man and one woman are sinful and cannot be condoned within the membership of Christ’s Church.

2. Any practice of sexual relations between man and man or woman and woman is severely condemned by God in Scripture and is described as an abomination in His sight.

3. Any church which countenances the ordination of a man practising homosexuality is
denying the faith and will earn the displeasure of Almighty God – Scriptures Genesis 19 v 5, Leviticus 18 v22, Romans 1 v26, 27, Revelation 22 v15.
