Pastor Donnie McClurkin is very unhappy right now with the recent ruling by the United States Supreme Court legalizing gay marriage in all states in the country.
While the Supreme Court ruling is considered historic to many people, it is bad news to many others, especially Bible-believing Christians.
McClurkin, who was once involved in a homos*xual lifestyle, was among many Christian leaders that took to social media to express their displeasure after the apex court decided to legalize gay marriage in the country in a 5-4 verdict.
“God has set the only standard for marriage to be between man and woman…in biology, in physiology, in history, biblically & spiritually and that..I will NEVER speak against,” the minister and renowned gospel singer wrote in a post on Facebook.
The pastor also had Bible references to back up his argument.
“What then? If some did not believe, does their unbelief nullify the faithfulness of God? Absolutely not! Let God be true and every human being shown up as a liar, just as it is written: ‘so that you will be justified in your words and will prevail when you are judged,’” McClurkin wrote, quoting Roman 3:3, 4.
He noted that the end has come and urged the church to “arise now and STAND in evangelism with the TRUE GOSPEL or BOW its knee to this new society and counterfeit gospel.”
Although some people will argue that the gospel singer is in no position to talk against the legalization of gay marriages given his homos*xual past, he is seemingly not intimidated by that reality, believing that old things have passed away. He says he has been delivered by God.
McClurkin, who pastors at Perfecting Faith Church in Freeport, New York, had a troubled childhood. Days after his 2-year-old brother was knocked down and killed by a speeding driver, 8-year-old McClurkin and a couple of his sisters were s*xually molested by their mother’s uncle. That encounter had set off homos*xual tendencies in the young man, and things remained that way until he was delivered.
Reverend Franklin Graham, Billy Graham’s son, was another one of the Christian leaders who have expressed their thoughts on the Supreme Court decision.
“The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled today that same-s*x marriage is legal in all 50 states,” he wrote. “With all due respect to the court, it did not define marriage, and therefore is not entitled to re-define it.”
To back up his argument, Graham quoted Genesis 2:24, which says: “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh.” He said actions such as the welcoming of gay marriage draw America closer to God’s judgment.
