Former United Methodist Bishop May Face Trial for Presiding at Homosexual Wedding

This former United Methodist bishop, Melvin G. Talbert may have to face a trial for conducting a homosexual wedding.  Saints of God, we know if it was not popular to be gay, we wouldn't see so many men and women condoning same sex marriage.  God is not pleased and if Jesus should  come back, many will miss the rapture.

According to, reached at his Nashville home, Talbert, 79, said church policy requires him to remain silent about the disciplinary process. But he said he was “delighted” that the New York Annual Conference announced Monday (March 10) that it had averted a trial for the Rev. Thomas Ogletree, who presided at the marriage of his son to another man.  

We sincerely hope Bishop Melvin Talbert repents before it's everlasting too late.
Biblical Scriptures against Homosexuality

Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God." 
  • Leviticus 18:22 - "Do not lie with a man as one lies with a woman; that is detestable." 
  • Leviticus 20:13 - "If a man lies with a man as one lies with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They must be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads." 
  • Romans 1:26-27 - "Because of this, God gave them over to shameful lusts. Even their women exchanged natural relations for unnatural ones. In the same way the men also abandoned natural relations with women and were inflamed with lust for one another. Men committed indecent acts with other men, and received in themselves the due penalty for their perversion."
