Homosexuality and God’s Institution of Marriage: An African Evangelical Perspective
Keywords:Evangelical, Christianity, Homosexuality, African, Western, Institution, Marriage
Homosexuality is a practice that is confronting the African church. Even though some Western churches have embraced the clergy and members who are gay and lesbian, the phenomenon has received a mixed reaction from the African Church. Some churches in the African continent have refused the idea of entertaining a discussion, while others feel that homosexuals have a right to be heard. In this regard, this library research paper discusses marriage as God’s institution anchored on biblical teaching; the contemporary perspectives of homosexuality; the biblical view of homosexuality; and the African Evangelical perspective of homosexuality. The paper concludes that the church in Africa, in its response, should be rooted in the Scriptures to advocate for good moral behaviour in society appropriately.
