The AALC regards homosexual desires and behavior as sinful and contrary to God's intent for His children. It rejects the contention that homosexual desires, behavior and/or lifestyle are simply another form of sexuality equally valid with the God-given male-female pattern. We urge Pastors and Congregations to initiate Scriptural teaching in appropriate situations so as to counter the growing social/cultural approval of homosexual attitudes and mind-set.
At the same time, since it is sin (Leviticus 18:22; Romans 1:18-32), we approach this sin as other sins. That is, we preach and teach Law (showing the sin and consequences leading to repentance) and Gospel (forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ); however, the Gospel is not a license to continue in sin (Galatians 5:13).
