Concerning GLBT Equality:
Wheaton’s Community Covenant states:
"Pre-marital sex, adultery, homosexual behavior and all other sexual relations outside the bounds of marriage between a man and woman:
Rom. 1:21-27 – "For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles. Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator?who is forever praised. Amen. Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion."
1 Cor. 6:9-10 – "Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor the drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God."
Gen. 2:24 – "For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and they will become one flesh."
Eph. 5:31 – " ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh.’ "
