God's plan for sex is one man, one woman marriage. Every Christian should be ready to believe that God's pattern for our lives is the best way for individuals and society to flourish.

Has Methodist Church 'lost its way' by allowing same-sex marriage? Andrea Minichiello and D.L. Marshall Shares Concern

Christian Concern's chief executive Andrea Minichiello Williams responds to the Methodist Church’s decision to allow same-sex marriage:
 
"I'm deeply sad to see the Methodist Church lose its way by no longer upholding marriage as God defines it.

"The key to the revival that sprung up through Methodism was its passion for the truth that is contained in the Bible.

"I caught that passion from faithful Methodist Sunday school teachers as a young girl and it is devastating to see the movement reflecting society's values rather than upholding true marriage.

"God's plan for sex is one man, one woman marriage. Every Christian should be ready to believe that God's pattern for our lives is the best way for individuals and society to flourish. Every church denomination - including Methodists and the Church of England - should confidently proclaim this vision, rather than mirror the zeitgeist.

The Co-Founder of GJC Generations of Jesus Christ and Believers Tribe, D.L. Marshall has also expressed his concerns by saying “This is not the way to lead and said “the word of God, that’s the bible is clear about the fundamental and foundational basis of marriage, which is between one man and one woman. The church cannot take decisions that are contrary to the word of God which is our guideline and life guard”.

D.L. Marshall has called for churches not to create and adopt standards that are below the biblical standard and way of life. Churches must not bend or take decisions base on governments and societal pressure. “A call to Christianity is a call to a higher standard base on the word of God and Jesus Christ lifestyle.” said D.L. Marshall.
