Assemblies of God Opposes Obama's Stance on SSM

 

The Assemblies of God is the largest pentecostal denomination in the world:

The Assemblies of God, in reaction to President Barack Obama's embracing of same-sex marriage, is voicing its dissent and objection. According to Dr. George O. Wood, general superintendent of the Assemblies of God, the Assemblies of God is in complete disagreement with the president's new position and takes exception to the president's taking Scripture out of context to defend his position.

"The Bible clearly teaches that marriage should be a life-long commitment between one man and one woman," states Dr. George O. Wood, general superintendent of the Assemblies of God. "There is no affirmation of homosexual behavior found anywhere in Scripture. However, the Bible is replete with evidence that homosexual behavior is immoral and comes under the judgment of God."

The president also referred to the Bible, claiming Christ sacrificing himself for mankind and the golden rule as reasons for endorsing same-sex marriage.

"Although it has become popular to quote Scripture grossly out of context to serve a personal or political agenda, it still doesn't change what God's Word clearly states," Wood says. -- AG News
