The Seventh-day Adventist Church has harshly condemned the court ruling to allow lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queers (LGTBQ) to have an association.

SDA Central Kenya Conference Executive Director Paul Mwangi condemned the ruling stating that marriage was divinely made to be a union between a man and a woman.

“Marriage was divinely established in Eden and affirmed by Jesus to be a lifelong union between a man and a woman in loving companionship,” Mwangi said in a statement.
“God instituted marriage, a covenant-based union of two genders [male and female] physically, emotionally, and spiritually, spoken of in scripture as ‘one flesh’.”

According to him, lowering this high view is to that like lowering the heavenly ideal, citing an affirmation of marriage in 1996.

He noted that God’s word transcends time and culture; thus, does not permit LGBTQ.

According to Genesis 1:26-28, marriage is anchored to the opposite sex in relation to God’s plan for the creation of marriage.

He urged leaders to protect the church, mostly in the institution of marriage.

He insisted on the need to teach children, youth, and adults the right doctrines of the Holy Scripture.

“It is time to stand for the truth even if the heavens fall.”

The ruling sparked a debate that saw top leaders in the country including the president and his deputy publicly condemn it.
