Impact Miami Church believes according to Jesus' teachings in the New Testament God's original and perfect design for marriage and sex is between a male and female in a monogamous covenant agreement (Matthew 5:27-30, Matthew 19:1-11). We believe homosexuality is a sexual orientation and lifestyle outside of God's perfect design like all other sins (Romans 1:26-27, Romans 12:2). We believe Jesus Christ can and wills to bring forgiveness and freedom from sins power, so homosexuals like all other sinners can manage, or control their particular sin by the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:16-25). This freedom does not eradicate their sinful tendency, but gives the new believer a choice to be a slave of righteousness, rather then a slave to their sinful nature (Romans 6:11-14, Galatians 5:16-25). As a result of serving the Living God in holiness they can be assured of their eternal salvation which is received by a genuine faith that leads to obedience of scripture (Romans 1:5, 1 Corinthians 6:9-11).
Matthew 5 Jesus warns about not controlling sexual sins.
27 "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall not commit adultery.'[e] 28 But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart. 29 If your right eye causes you to stumble, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell. 30 And if your right hand causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.
