The Book of Revelation in the New Testament starts off with letters from Jesus to the churchs of Asia Minor. Each of these churches has something that the Lord wants to tell it with an admonition to do right or their candlestick will be removed, which is a reference to their testimony for Christ being removed. The Episcopal Church moved one step closer to having its wick extinguished, if it already hasn’t blown out.
The group meeting of the churches began with discussions of whether they would capitulate to the demand of the global Anglican church to stop promoting homosexual leaders and to stop blessing homosexual unions. The plea was not far enough, in my opinion. V Gene Robinson should be no where near a church leader, since he engages in a sin that is against nature and natures God.
Instead of complying, the Episcopalians selected as the highest bishop in the U.S. a woman (I don’t know how she is a husband of one wife) who stands fully behind homosexuality. She endorses the unions and accepts that “they were born that way.” She wants the church to be inclusive– a command that is definitely not in line with the scripture’s comments about separation from the world to Christ.
It’s saddening to watch as once great churches who had testimonies for Christ leave the faith. I would encourage any believers in that denomination to find a church that follows God’s teaching and leave those that have set themselves against Christ.
