Church of England considering transgender re-naming services
Signalling an openness to the idea of new liturgy to mark gender transition, a note sent to synod members from the Church's top civil servant, William Nye, said there was, 'no legal or doctrinal difficulty about a baptised transgendered person re-affirming their baptismal vows' using a different name.
It added no one could be baptised twice, meaning the option of re-baptismal services for people who had transitioned gender was not possible.
Nye said the Church already had services for people who had been through a 'significant personal transition of one kind or another' which could be used to mark gender change. Yet a motion will be voted on in July to introduce new church services, specifically for transgender people....
Like the Romish church the C.of E. does not know Christ Jesus. Their idolatry fabricates a graven image.
"Thus Jesus is the supreme example for men. But the Jesus who can serve as an example is not the Jesus of modern liberal reconstruction, but only the Jesus of the New Testament. The Jesus of modern liberalism advanced stupendous claims which were not founded upon fact âˆ’ such conduct ought never to be made a norm. The Jesus of modern liberalism all through His ministry employed language which was extravagant and absurd âˆ’ and it is only to be hoped that imitation of Him will not lead to an equal extravagance in His modern disciples. If the Jesus of naturalistic reconstruction were really taken as an example, disaster would soon follow. As a matter of fact, however, the modern liberal does not really take as his example the Jesus of the liberal historians; what he really does in practice is to manufacture as his example a simple exponent of a non-doctrinal religion whom the abler historians even of his own school know never to have existed except in the imagination of modern men. Very different is the imitation of the real Jesus âˆ’ the Jesus of the New Testament who actually lived in the first century of our era." (J.Gresham Machen)(Christianity and Liberalism)
Liberalism is another name for Satan's religion. The Church of England and the other Liberal churches do not do Bible or Christian theology. What they do is Satanic opposition to all things Bible and find ways to excuse sin and sinners. If the Bible says 'do it' - then Liberalism will find a way round it. If the Bible says 'do not do it' - then Liberalism will provide the excuse to do it their way. Abortion, Sodom and Gomorrah, Judas, transgender, become completely acceptable in the religion of Liberalism.
In Liberalism sin, iniquity and transgression have mitigating reasons for being acceptable and not nearly so bad as orthodox Christianity makes them out to be. All the Liberal churches have to do is provide the worldly reasons of human experience for placating their god. Thus idolatry comes in very handy here.
The worldly religion and religious ideology of the Liberal church such as the C.of E. by joining in with the world and sanctifying homosexual behaviour, prefer to appease the sinner than perceive the Word of God as authority. Thus by encouraging disobedience of God they win friends and influence sinners.
The C.of E. and the other Liberalist churches belong to Satan and he uses them to add to his evil chaos in society.
A statement from bishops then recognised that 'some Christians concluded on the basis of Scripture and Christian anthropology, that concepts such as "gender realignment" or "sex change" were really a fiction. Hormone treatment or surgery might change physical appearance, but they could not change the fundamental God-given reality of "male and female He created them".'
The Church is still divided on the issue and the motion is likely to be opposed by conservatives on Synod citing the Bible's teaching that God made humans to be 'male and female'.
But Newlands said it was important to be 'fully to up to speed on what current medical and psychiatric wisdom is telling us'.
He told Christian Today: 'The law recognises gender transition. It is a reality in the world today and we need to accept that times have moved on since the book of Genesis.
'We have got to frame our theology in the context of science and where we are.
'We are not living on a flat earth any more"
- A new translation will help "Shemale and Faux-female sHe created it or them"
The cutting edge translators will help build up that Tower of Babel and prepare for One World under that glorious Beast the world will wonder at. But it will not stand. Fire's a comin'
