LGBT Forum Could Not Answer Wolf Blitzer’s Question: Why Does Bible Only Reference Marriage Between a Man and a Woman?

Charlotte, NC—The American Pastors’ Network (APN, presented biblical truths about the sanctity of marriage and alternative lifestyles in a press conference immediately following a forum on the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality this past Saturday, Sept. 28 on the campus of Lenoir-Rhyne University in Hickory, N.C.  The forum was organized by homosexual activist and business/furniture mogul Mitchell Gold and included CNN news personality Wolf Blitzer as the moderator, as well as two liberal North Carolina pastors.

Those speaking on behalf of the American Pastors’ Network were APN President, Sam Rohrer; APN Board Member, Dr. Gary Dull; and North Carolina Pastors’ Network President/HOPE Ministries International President, Dave Kistler.

The pastors representing the LGBT forum and Gold made statements that declared that attitudes in the Christian church are becoming more favorable toward  the LGBT community, and that God, in essence, sanctions various views of marriage including what is referred to as same-sex marriage. They stated that God is loving, and therefore by implication the Church is obligated to declare that various forms of family and variations of marriage to that of only one man and one woman are acceptable.  The forum participants went on to say that the disapproval of homosexuality or same-sex marriage by the Church, by pastors, or others has caused the untimely death of innocent people. Therefore, the conclusion is that if the stigma and disapproval are removed and government can declare equal any number of variations of family or forms of human sexuality, then all will be well.

Sam Rohrer and the American Pastors’ Network affirm that these and similar views are consistent with a worldview that does not accept Biblical truth or moral absolutes.

Sam Rohrer, president of the APN stated, “In an age where the concept of absolute Truth is rejected and the culture seeks to throw off the virtues and moral foundations that undergird all free and prosperous societies, it falls to the pastors and preachers of God’s Word to lay out the warnings and blessings God has made clear. The current effort to dislodge God’s standard for marriage and family is but another flawed effort to have government redefine what they did not create nor define. Family and marriage is God’s creation and idea. His opinion is all that really matters.”

Dave Kistler, president of the North Carolina Pastors’ Network, an affiliate of the APN added, “As preachers of God’s truth, it is our solemn responsibility to proclaim what God says about all issues. There is nothing more basic and fundamental than the teaching of the Scriptures on the topic of marriage and human sexuality. God’s unequivocal and unchanging design for marriage is that of a monogamous relationship between one man and one woman. All else is a violation of His sacred and safe design, and will result in a plethora of negative societal consequences. The evidence is overwhelming that the most healthy relationships (both physically and emotionally) are those that are lived within the boundaries of biblical, traditional marriage.”

Since North Carolina’s historic Marriage Amendment victory on May 8, 2012, Gold has been on a mission across the western part of North Carolina, issuing provocative statements about the church and Christians and their views on traditional marriage and sexual purity.

APN noted with interest that when Wolf Blitzer questioned those on the LGTB panel about the Bible only referencing marriage between a man and a woman, the question was ignored as it caught those on stage off-guard, fumbling for an answer that was never given.

The American Pastors’ Network purpose is to establish a dynamic network of Biblically faithful pastors and citizen leaders who are committed to the Truth, who believe in the Authority of Scripture, who boldly preach the whole counsel of God with a disciplined application of a Biblical Worldview to public policy, and who are building a permanent infrastructure of Biblically-faithful pastors and lay leaders.
