Homosexuality goes against the teachings of the Bible and should not be admitted to the Church, conservative Anglican leaders have said.

Gathering in Nairobi for week-long Global Anglican Future Conference, the clergy on Monday said they would preach for adherence to the teachings of the Bible and do not support the infiltration of “secularising” influences.

DOCTRINE OF CREATION

“(Biblical) Paul talks about it very much in his letters and the Bible is also quite clear about it and our cultures, for example, in Africa are very clear,” Kenya’s Archbishop Eliud Wabukala, who is also the chairman of the conference, told reporters in Nairobi.

“The entire doctrine of creation, if you read Genesis, says that God created male and female and has that ordering in order to make life possible. Any faith that wants to be true to the creation theology has to uphold that principle of God’s ordering of creation.”

The bishops said the conference, which is a breakaway from the Lambeth conferences organised by Worldwide Anglican Communion, is meant to take worshippers back to the true teachings of Christ.
