Kirk facing 'silent rebellion' as gay ordination row intensifies
Traditionalists within Kirk sessions and presbyteries could move to block gay clergy by refusing to administer ordination, the clergy Aberdeen minister Rev Louis Kinsey suggested, as Rev David Randall of Ayrshire followed his father Rev David Randall senior of Logie St John's in Dundee in becoming the latest to say publicly that they will leave.

The kirk needs to split into "The Liberal CofS" And "The Almost Biblical CofS"
Lets face it long before they put the abomination in the pulpit in Aberdeen the Kirk was teetering on the edge of shall we shan't we. The recent Assembly has demonstrated the Kirk is no longer Biblical and no longer follows Christ. When they dumped the teaching of Scripture on women whom God will not use in the pulpit then they slid down the slippery slope to the politically correct hell of Liberalism. Satan's followers the Liberals are now in the dominant position in the CofS, just as they are in the CofE. Both are dead churches. Christians no longer worship there, they can't, the Holy Spirit does not compromise with Satan. 2Cor 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols?"
There syncretism is nauseous. Denominational unity is more important than God's word!

He makes clear there are two realms of accountability before God. One, false teachers will be held accountable for what they have taught, and there are no excuses before God. And two, believers are without excuse when they are deceived by false teachers and their teaching they have exposed themselves to. Why? Because both have the Truth given to them.
