An affront to Anabaptism

True Anabaptists would take issue with the Dec. 24 editorial, “Facing an inevit­able question.” It is heavily slanted toward pro-LGBTQ and a great disservice to the Anabaptist community. It grossly undermines the biblical position of the Mennonite Church USA Confession of Faith’s Article 19, which says, “We believe that God intends marriage to be a covenant between one man and one woman for life.”

We need to be on our guard lest we become a tool of the enemy of our souls. One of the reasons America is looking more like a third-world country is the failure of the church to be the true church of Jesus Christ, unspotted from the world. The most loving thing we can do is to be like John the Baptist and warn sinners to flee from the wrath to come.

Some might say, “But Jesus never said anything about LGBTQ!” Our Anabaptist forefathers, however, saw all of Scripture as the Word of God. It is a great dishonor to them if we ignore the Apostle Paul’s clear words on this subject in Romans 1.

As our Maker and Creator, God gets to write the rules. Truth is non-negotiable; ­violating it will bring God’s judgment. Much of the fault of our nation’s moral decay can be laid at the feet of the churches for aiding and abetting the sins of the world. Is it any wonder the government accommodates and protects abortion and LGBTQ if the church embraces them?
