Seventh-Day Adventist pastor tackles LGBTQ+ confessions in church



By Wanja Waweru

In Nairobi, at a Seventh Day Adventist (SDA) church known for its staunch conservatism, Pastor Elizabeth Mokoro seized the bull by the horns when she preached about homosexuality.

Pastor Mokoro claimed in her sermon that she had made an effort to address homosexuality because the SDA church was not receptive to such discussions

After a young man asked her for therapy and received an invitation to her church, the woman claimed she felt compelled to address the situation.

“We sat down later, and he said, ‘Pastor, I want to marry’ so quickly in my head, I knew we were doing marital counseling, but he said he didn’t need marital counseling now.

I asked him what he needed, and he said, ‘I’m gay, but don’t misunderstand me. My mother’s brother abused me when I was 10 in our own house, and I grew up like that.”

She continued, “Every time he did it, he told me ‘Don’t tell anyone or I will kill you.’ That’s why I keep on telling people to be careful about the people they host in their house. What values do they hold?” began Pastor Mokoro.

Pastor Mokoro was told by the young guy, who asked to remain anonymous, that he made it through school but was completely bullied into homosexuality in high school. He accepted it as part of who he is after living with it throughout college, but he still desired to be married. He was worried that if he got married, he’d have to sleep with both sexes and turn into a bisexual man.

“I realized we had a problem. It didn’t last two weeks before I got a call from here in Nairobi of a person telling me that he was attracted to fellow men, and he strongly believed this was not of God. He had fasted about it, and it was not going (away).

And I meet a girl that is a lesbian, but you see, when you are a lesbian or gay, you never miss porn and masturbation; and for masturbation in women, you risk losing your mind, so for her, she’s gone cuckoos, and she’s in a mental facility. So I said ok? Do we have Adventist homosexuals?

Our problem is one thing. We have not learned to differentiate between accepting the person and accepting the behavior. Those are two different things. God is a sinner-loving God but a sin-hating God,” preached Pastor Mokoro.
