Mid-Week Challenge

When the Church looks and behaves just like the popular culture, where do people turn for truth?  That is a hard question that the people of England have been asking for some time now and their situation just got worse.  With overwhelming support, the Church of England has voted to affirm transgender individuals. “I hope that we can make a powerful statement to say that we believe that trans people are cherished and loved by God, who created them, and is present through all the twists and turns of their lives,” said the Rev. Christopher Newlands at the Synod meeting. The Rev. John Sentamu also spoke favorably of welcoming transgender individuals into the Church.  "As the world listens to us, the world needs to hear us say that LGBT orientation and identity is not a crime. LGBT orientation and identity is not a sickness. And LGBT orientation and identity is not a sin."

Wow, how lost is this group of ministers!  If people were confused before they have to be baffled now.  True, the church should be a place of welcome and one that loves people, but it is never right to condone their sin. The church should be a place where people get help in fighting their sinful behaviors, not permission to continue in them.  Any minister of the Gospel must have God’s Word as the final say on all issues.  To take matters into their own hands and reclassify sinful behavior is dangerous and deadly.  We are called to love people not to lie to them.

What a sad day for the people of England when their church leaders fail to do the very thing they have been called of the Lord to do. 

Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who put darkness for light and light for darkness, who put bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter.  Isaiah 5:20
