There have been heated debates within the church for centuries on some subjects. Among the most heated controversial issues for modern churches would be same-sex marriage and abortion. As mentioned by Veronica Neffinger, gay marriage or same-sex marriage has been a totally controversial issue for different churches, some support it and some do not. For instance, The Presbyterian Church (USA) supports it and the Anglican Church has softened its stance toward gay marriage and gay priests. Some demand the church to welcome LGBT individuals and some take the step further in accepting a gay clergy and grant clergy he rights to perform same-sex marriages. Regarding abortion, a study conducted by Pew Research Center shows that those who claim to be religious with only 17 percent oppose to abortion. That’s a surprising fact indeed.
Next, we found that different churches have different interpretations of what the script means. Next, baptism rituals vary from church to church, so as its theology. The question: is baptism essential for salvation? Some churches do put a lot of weight on it and some don’t.
The Bible condemns drunkenness and instructs Christ-followers to be sober-minded.But churchgoers still deal with the question of whether Christians allowed to drink alcohol. Some churchgoers believe that consuming alcohol in moderation is not a sin. Thus, some churches use grape juice for Communion, while others use wine. The question: Can the church or clergy represents or interprets God’s thinking without any misunderstanding?
“ I’m suggesting we need to start believing God’s Word and quit making divorce the unpardonable sin [….] So, why then do our churches so consistently insist that 1 Timothy 3:12 prohibits a divorced person from becoming a deacon? […]
A man told me, “Had I murdered my wife, I’d have served maybe 20 years in prison, then got out and joined the church and could have become a deacon. But all I did was divorce her.” He was calling the church out for its hypocrisy, that divorce is a harsher crime to many in the church than murder.” Joe McKeever, Joe McKeever , What the Scriptures Actually Tell Us about Divorce
By doing so, the churches become the one who practices social bias and social discrimination against countless vulnerable divorced women for sure. Simultaneously, the churches would be the roots of social discrimination. If we seek a better peaceful world, it is necessary to iron out discrimination between people for no discrimination, no wounds.
As asserted by Joe McKeever, having a divorce would not be a sin if a person has “grounds” for divorce. (Matthew 19:9). I don’t believe that God would ask his people to keep a bad or troublesome marriage with violence or emotional bullying.
I am not much motivated to go to church. One of the reasons which keeps me from going to the church is that I don’t believe the clergy or priest can be the one who always interpret God’s thinking correctly. Nevertheless, most churchgoers incline to take the priest as the representative of God with great respect and worship. And we have the crimes in churches many a time from the TV news. I don’t know what to say.
