Weblog: Episcopal Church Officially Promotes Idol Worship
Imagine for one moment that you're a leader in the Episcopal Church USA. You know that within the next few days, a global commission is going to release a report on how the global Anglican Communion should respond to your church, and is likely to be critical of the ordination of an actively homosexual man as bishop. You know, and have said yourself, that the debate isn't just about sexuality: It's about how one views the Bible. And you know that all eyes will be on your denomination over the next few weeks. What do you do?
What the real leaders of the Episcopal Church did was to take an action that makes ordaining a homosexual man as a bishop almost a non-issue. They started promoting the worship of pagan deities.
This is not a joke nor an overstatement. In all truth and seriousness, leaders of the Episcopal Church USA are promoting pagan rites to pagan deities. And not just any new pagan...
I seriously hope you were joking about your comment in which you said that there may be a genetic defect in women. In your comment I see hubris in the view that there is inherent superiority of men over women and this is not supported by the scriptures. Also, please don't just attach the misguided teachings of this church to women in leadership and teaching, that's a tenuous connection at best.
I was in the http://aomin.org chatroom when someone posted the URL for us to read and we couldn't believe what we were reading. It looks like Paul had good reasons for saying that women shouldn't teach or have authority over men, using the example of Eve in causing Adam to sin. Perhaps there is a genetic defect in women that causes them to go off in this direction if not kept in check by the leaders that God has appointed. Perhaps the coverings in 1 Cor 11 have a deeper meaning than we realize and their rejection by most churches has been the beginning of the "Women's movement" to overthrow God's order in the Church as a means of leading it into heresy. This is so plainly Satanic and yet here we have a large denomination openly promoting it as a form of spiritual self annihilation. Perhaps it is just a fruit of the fact that spiritual death is already there and homosexuallity and idolatry are the signs of their spiritual state. I wonder what Sproul has to say about these things? I haven't heard or read any of his comments on his denomination's departure from the faith that was once delivered to the saints.
