Last week I came home and found some material from [tag]Watchtower[/tag] stuffed in my apartment door. It’s interesting the see their approach to evangelism and how they communicate their religion to “unbelievers.” One paragraph in particular sticks out to me:
False religion tolerates immoral sex: In Western lands, church groups ordain gay and lesbian members of the clergy and urge governments to recognize same-sex marriages. Even churches that condemn immorality have tolerated religious leaders who have sexually abused children. What, through does the Bible teach? It plainly states: “Do not be misled. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men kept for unnatural purposes, nor men who lie with men… will inherit God’s kingdom.” (1 Corinthians 6:9, 10) Do you know of religions that condone immoral sex?
While many evangelicals are shying away from this issue due to social pressure and “tolerance,” I find it ironic that [tag]Jehovah’s Witnesses[/tag] are making it loud and clear in their outreach material, of all places. I’m not really sure what to think about this.
