Letter to editor,

I just read today that the United Methodist Church (UMC) recently had a vote and passed by a 6 to 4 ratio that homosexuality is “incompatible with Christian teaching” (http://www.newsmax.com/US/Methodists-Gays/2012/05/03/id/437991). I find this interesting because in the same article we are told that the UMC has been debating among themselves for four decades about the issue. If they stayed with biblical teaching there would be no debate (Romans 1:24-27).

Homosexuality is a behavioral activity that is degenerating, but a behavioral activity that can be changed if one desires to do so. It may be terribly difficult (like such vices as alcoholism and drugs), but it can be done. If one would be pleasing to the Lord it must be done.
