Same-Sex Issue Splits Church

Posted in Uncategorized at 7:49 am by Steve

This is a sad situation. Why the leadership of the Episcopal Church can’t see what their support of homosexuality, against the teaching of the Bible, by the way, is doing to their fellowship is beyond me. At least the U.S. churches have a recourse by being able to withdraw from the Episcopal Church.

(CNSNews.com) – The head of the worldwide Anglican Church has laid out a proposal aimed at keeping the fractious denomination together by means of a two-tier structure of conservatives and liberals, but a leading conservative archbishop says the church is already divided.
This week, several U.S. dioceses began a process of withdrawing from Anglicanism’s liberal American branch, the Episcopal Church (ECUSA).
Differences over homosexuality have triggered one of the most severe crises in the history of the 77 million-strong worldwide Anglican Communion, whose roots predate the Reformation.
ECUSA in 2003 consecrated an openly homosexual clergyman as bishop of New Hampshire, and some Canadian dioceses agreed to bless same-sex unions.
Earlier this month, ECUSA’s general convention in Ohio failed to adopt high-level recommendations to repent and declare a moratorium on the ordination of practicing homosexuals and the blessing of same-sex unions.

    I do not believe that they “cant” see what their views are doing to their church – I believe that the church has fallen prey to the homosexual agenda and will never be able to turn back. Their poor decision regarding leadership has landed them in the middle of an apostate church. My personal opinion (not that anyone asked for it) is that if members of the Episcopal church dont buck the system and call for the removal of their “gay-loving” leader, there will be no turning back for the Episcopal church. The Episcopals have always been more liberal in their views, but this is going way too far. Its either time to step up or step out if you are part of this church.
