Church of Scotland General Assembly votes to allow gay ministers

The Church of Scotland's ruling General Assembly has voted to allow actively gay men and women to become ministers.

Assembly commissioners in Edinburgh voted in favour of a proposal that allows liberal parishes to opt out of the church's policy on homosexuality.

The decision will have to be endorsed by the church's regional presbyteries and officially approved next year.

In other words believers with their unbelieving children comprise the church?!

Prove it!

Church of Scotland in name only.

Appropriate quote from the web. "The Church of Jesus Christ consists in all those throughout the whole world that profess the true religion together with their children. The Church is constituted by its adherence to the truth as taught in the Scriptures. To the extent that it does not conform to that rule, it ceases to be a church of Jesus Christ. If it fails to meet that test in doctrine, government, worship or discipline, it cannot claim divine right of existence. The popular confusion wherein the Church of Christ is identified with the government over a professing body is the root of ecclesiastical tyranny and flows from Romish ecclesiology that teaches that the Church is the governments (i.e., pope, archbishops, bishops, priests, etc.). These governments are titled "clergy" and without them there can be no "Church." The people are grafted into the "Church" by means of the "clergy." In fact, the apostle Peter refers to the people of God as his "clergy" (1 Peter 5:3; the word translated "heritage" is klhrwv "kleron"). It is true that Jesus Christ has set government in his Church, but that government is not the Church. Any government which claims a right over believers must be able to show its charter from the Word of God."

Whatever next?

It makes no difference to me who is apostate and who is not. I don't have a party spirit, as that is unbiblical.

However, I do not deny that having an unregenerate membership is duty bound to result in apostasy eventually, as the tares gain the majority, and take positions of leadership, voting in the presbyteries.

Comparing apples with pears and coming out with a pink elephant!

The problem of the Scottish church is that they don't care for God's revelation or its authority.

The question of one's stance on a single moral issue, which BTW many make on the basis of Scripture, is not apostasy, just because one doesn't happen to agree with it.

Why is it that SteveR always thinks and acts like the devil? He must have missed the seminars on "subtlety" at the Jesuit training school.

Good morning Steve

Sometimes I get the impression you delight in the apostasy of churches.

I am more concerned with the root causes.

If the root cause is dealt with, your own church may stand a chance of avoiding the great apostasy. Unless it is already apostate, of course.

I am well acquainted with the presbytery meetings in Wales, because I know someone who atends them regularly. He reckons that he's the only Christian among them. And that sort of thing can only come about because unregenerate folks are allowed into church membership. Why you argue with that conclusion, I cannot tell.

I doubt there will be one vote against, at the presbytery meeting. These meetings are attended by the elders, ministers, or church reps, and it will say a lot for their spiritual state.
But then, if they insist on paedo baptism, what really do they expect? If they had kept the church membership a regenerate one, baptising only those who believed the Bible and were called of God, they wouldn't be in this unbiblical pickle.
I guess we could call it full apostasy.

It is really a misnomer to call this outfit a church however, apparently quite some time ago, they allowed women ministers, q.v.,

Unlike Shakespeare's Queen Gertrude (Hamlet's mother), Lutherans, Anglicans, Presbyterians, Methodists, Episcopalians and many Baptists never did "protest too much."

What good is a "Reformation" if it fails to keep its hundreds of millions of members from falling on their own swords?

I think something very Romanist got into the bloodstream of Presbyterianism when it first came into being, and now they are reaping the rewards of having an unregenerate church covenant membership.

Of the preeminent Reformers, John Knox, laid the Presbyterian cornerstone, The Church of Scotland (c. 1560), which would always follow this motto:

"The Bible is the only infallible rule of faith and practice."

However, something very sexual got into the bloodstream of Presbyterianism in the past fifty years which, as of Tuesday, caused that venerable global institution to fall into irreparable and utter ruin.

The article: I know I sound like a broken record, but wow...this is all so astonishing and I never thought I'd see the day. Openly gay preachers, approved by the congregations, preaching the word of God in a church? The Bible is so very clear, throughout, that homosexuality is an abomination. How do these people get past this? How have they convinced themselves that it is really okay to be gay and be a bonafide Christian at the same time? Very strange that they feel this is okay and that they seem to have no fear of God almighty whatsoever. Strange, strange, strange, because of all people, they know what the Bible says concerning these things.

You make a make a valid case indeed Welor. However if we were to lump ALL the wickedness of all Protestant Churches into one organization(including fallen ones like Rev Sun Myong Moon where paedophilia is doctrine), then I would say its a horse race.
You'd like to think so but not even remotely near the truth.
