Statement of Unacceptable Behaviors and Lifestyles

The following are examples, and not an exhaustive list, of some of the behaviors and lifestyles that violate the belief systems of Redeeming Love Christian Center:

God created males and females for the purpose of the continuance of the human race, for the purpose of procreation as an act of marriage (Genesis 1:27-28). Therefore, it is unacceptable for people to change (alter, adapt, modify, convert, or pervert) the God-ordained and God-intended purpose and use of the human body and human sexuality.

We believe that God creates each person as male or female. These two distinct, complimentary genders together reflect the image and likeness of God. Rejection of one’s biological gender is a rejection and denial of what God has ordained for His creation.

Behaviors and lifestyles such as homosexuality, bisexual conduct, same-sex marriage, sodomy, lesbianism, bestiality, incest, pornography, pedophilia, transgender, any attempt to change one’s gender or appear as the opposite gender, or disagreement with one’s biological gender is sin, offensive, an abomination, and detestable to God. And, accordingly, it is considered absolutely inappropriate (i.e., unsuitable, unfitting, and wrong) and unacceptable (i.e., improper, intolerable, deplorable, and offensive) by this Church, its pastors, staff, employees, volunteers, members, etc.

  • You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. (Leviticus 18:22)
  • If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. (Leviticus 20:13)
  • Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves . . For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful. (Romans 1:24-32)
  • Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites . . . will inherit the kingdom of God. (1 Corinthians 6:9-10)
  • Knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is contrary to sound doctrine, according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed to my trust. (1 Timothy 1:9-11)
