What does the Bible say about this?
Although the inclusion topic is now trending around the world, the world forgets the trending in heaven is holiness (Hebrews 12:14)
The Bible is clear about this kind of practices. God wants people to live a life free from impurity. Now, the question is… Should humans please God or the desires of the flesh?
In response to this queston, the Word of God says:
There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit (Romans 8:1)
