Lecturer Dismissed from Methodist College Over Tweets on “Homosexuality Invading the Church”

A lecturer from the Methodist Institution Cliff College has been dismissed over a social media post on homosexuality in the church. He has resolved that the action taken against him was “a horrendous amount of suffering and persecution”.

Dr Aaron Edward, a Christian theology lecturer, has been sacked from his position in a Methodist Bible College for his tweet on homosexuality which has gone viral at a time when the Methodist church is about considering same-sex marriage. 

Aaron’s post on Twitter had read: “Homosexuality is invading the Church. Evangelicals no longer see the severity of this b/c they’re busy apologising for their apparently barbaric homophobia, whether or not it’s true. This *is* a “Gospel issue”, by the way. If sin is no longer sin, we no longer need a Saviour.” The school authority had asked him to put the post down but he had refused, causing the matter to continue aggravating with the argument that he believed in his message. The tweet had led to his suspension as well as massive criticism online from believers and non-christians. 


In an interview with Premier, Dr. Aaron Edward had expressed his disbelief over the dismissal, considering that his family had no other source of income. “We don’t know what’s going to happen, but we know God’s going to provide. “We’re in a loving church. I’ve had so many people praying and prophesying over us over the last month, and that has been amazing. “Though there’s been a horrendous amount of suffering and persecution, and also people attacking me thinking I’m trying to be a martyr, because I’m talking about it – and I just don’t think they understand what it’s like to go through these things.

“At the same time, my church has been right behind me, and people have been supporting us in all sorts of ways. “We’ve got a Crowdfunder up now where we’ve asked people to if they want to contribute, I’ve got a vision for theological education in the future that I’d like to explore further, and so I think we’re going to be okay, because I just believe God’s got us in his hands.”

The news of his dismissal had spread like wildfire and can even be sighted on a page of The Sunday telegraph.


The college had responded to the dismissal of Dr. Aaron Edward and in the statement made by a spokesman, he said:  “safe and hospitable place where those with differing convictions are welcomed and encouraged to live and learn together as faithful disciples of Christ.”

According to sources, the theological lecturer of 37 with 5 children, is said to be supported by the Christian Legal Centre.

- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
