"The General Assembly has committed an express repudiation of the Bible, the mutually agreed upon Confessions of the PCUSA, thousands of years of faithfulness to God's clear commands and the denominational ordination vows of each concurring commissioner," the Presbyterian Lay Committee said in a statement.
Of the mainline Protestant denominations, only the United Church of Christ supports gay marriage outright. The Episcopal Church has approved a prayer service for blessing same-sex unions. The Evangelical Lutheran Church in America has eliminated barriers for gay clergy but allows regional and local church officials to decide their own policies on ordination and blessings for same-sex couples.
The largest mainline group, the United Methodist Church, with about 7.8 million U.S. members, bars ordaining people in same-sex relationships. However, church members have been debating whether to split...
To prayersfortheweak: Obviously, not every one who calls themselves a Christian, is. If you are familiar with the Bible, you will see that there are tares amidst the wheat. And there will be many who, on that day, will hear..."depart from me ye workers of iniquity...I never knew ye." We cannot know the hearts of men but we can "inspect the fruit" and, if I may borrow an expression from some who post on this site, "fruitcakes".
Lord God; You have already destroyed this PCUSA church by the obvious removal of your Holy Spirit and your grace. I commit them unto your hands.
I pray Father that you will ensure that no true Christians shall make the mistake of joining this reprobate church.
Romans 1: "18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness; 24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature:"

The Greatest Common Factor of all white sepulchers heretical liberals‚Äô neo evangelicals‚Äô demonic possessed mainline ‚Äúprotestant‚ÄĚ churches is their searing hatred towards the authoritative KJV Bible! And of course, out of this, is their complete devotion and allegiance to the non-authoritative, 21st century friendly, modern scholars‚Äô enhanced open for interpretations modern ‚Äúbibles‚ÄĚ; this is the reason why they made their own modern sodomite ‚ÄúChristian bible.‚ÄĚ
Because the authoritative Bible, there is none like it, is very clear with the sin of sodomy; and it is worthy, with God‚Äôs pleasure of holy justice, judgment of fire here and in hell.
And oh, the Bloody Roman Catholic Church, the Great Whore, the Mystery Babylon the Great, is surely giggling and laughing at her bed, of what is happening to the now effeminate mainline ‚Äúprotestant‚ÄĚ churches.

The Al Jazeera report highlights the stories of two other women who attended BJU in three separate decades, from the early 1990s to the 2010s, who allege that faculty at the fortress-like Christian college handled their sexual abuse reports poorly.
A nonprofit led by Billy Graham's grandson Boz Tchividjian, called Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment, is investigating how BJU handled sexual abuse at the request of the university.
So far, according to Al Jazeera, more than 100 people have come forward to GRACE investigators, and a report on the organization's findings will be released in a few months.
Tchividjian thinks Christian organizations across the United States have failed victims in similar ways, and noted that Protestant organizations could be "worse" than the Catholic Church.
Really crazy. God's Word is so crystal clear on the topic that it's not even close to being open for interpretation. Nobody ever brings up the appropriate scriptures that they know full well are there and the people follow blindly; completely disregarding God's clear instructions. I reall can't believe people like this...it's astonishing tome. John, while the church may say it's against sodomy and ssodomite marraige, let's not forget the children who were and are being raped and molested since the beginning. The church says one thing, but it's people paint a different picture. Pedophile priests all over the world were protected and moved around without a moments concern for the children. The only reason we even know about it is because law enforcement finally had to put pressure on and threaten a very uncooperative church. The church, in theory, says, "no", but the evidence tells another story, not to mention 1/3 Catholics polled are for sodomite unions and equality.
The whole article should be read. It did leave out the Unitarian-Univeralists which has been supporting queers for years. Anyway the PCUSA is officially and anti-Christian church, because The Bible Says Homosexuality is Sin
