Theological colleges of Nagaland have come out openly against lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) community. During its two-day 18th annual general conference that culminated at Classic Blossom Hall, Duncan here on Sunday, Nagaland Theological Colleges Association (NTCA) adopted four-point resolution against the LGBTQ community in the presence of resolution committee convener Vekutulu L Veyie, member Dr Rushulo Sep and member Chumpongse. 

As same sex marriage/selection was prohibited in the Bible, NTCA resolved to firmly uphold biblical teaching of sexual morality and prohibit same sex marriage saying the practices and culture of LGBTQ could never be compromised by the church.

Also resolving that the Christian community should continue to raise its prophetic voice against any Christian agencies that legalised same sex marriage, the association emphasised that the church should continue to serve and equip people with strong biblical teachings of Christian principles of sexual morality through preaching, teaching, counselling, discipleship, support groups, etc. 

Meanwhile, NTCA elected its new team of office bearers for a period of three years that would be led by Mt Terogvu Theological College, Tsenminyu principal Dr Rushulo Seb as president, Shalom Bible Seminary, Kohima academic dean Kwang Aier as vice-president, Golden Crown Theological Seminary, Dimapur faculty Apolo K Assumi as general secretary, David Khobung as information and publicity secretary along with two other members. The installation service was held during the conference. 

During the culmination programme, a worship service was organised wherein retired principal OTS and professor emeritus of philosophy and constructive theology Dr Wati Aier was the main speaker. He delivered his message in the theological perspective. 

The programme also adjudged winners of the choir competition, in which the first position was bagged by Golden Crown Theological College, while Eastern Bible College and Nagaland Bible College won the first and second positions respectively. 

The event was chaired by Shalom Bible Seminary assistant professor Vila Kiewhuo, while scripture reading and prayer was offered by Golden Crown Theological College academic dean Donwibou Pamei.  Vote of thanks was delivered by NTCA general secretary Apolo K Assumi and benediction by ATM lecturer Kangsinglung Kamei.
