Major Ministry Kicked Out of Evangelical Alliance UK over Homosexuality Stance
Oasis Trust, a sizable ministry founded by a prominent but controversial British Christian leader, has been "discontinued" as a member of the United Kingdom's largest evangelical group after its board refused to adjust online resources and social media to "equally profile the traditional Christian view" on human sexuality.
While the Oasis board says it has "no corporate view on this matter," Steve Chalke shocked British evangelicals by coming out in favor of same-sex relationships last year. He announced his belief that monogamous same-sex relationships are not sinful and that churches should support them in the February 2013 issue of Christianity magazine....

Romans 4:4 Now to him that worketh is the reward not reckoned of grace, but of debt. 4:5 But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.
Galatians 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. 2:21 I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.
The Penal Substitution of the atonement was not the doctrine of the church for its first 1000 years of history, so there is nothing wrong with rejecting that. Certainly works will not atone for past sins, but the opposite extreme is equally heretical. A working faith of holiness and good works are absolutely required to enter the kingdom. Read the book of James, Luke 6 and others etc.
His position on homosexuality is utterly reprehensible and a one way ticket to perdition. A little leaven leavens the whole lump. Satan is tearing down the gender boundary. Young people are being indoctrinated to make no distinction between gender when choosing a partner. This is the antichrist spirit of lawlessness and will end up at Mystery Babylon, upon which the plagues of God will fall.

Real Christians have known for years that Chalke is not a true Christian anyway. He rejects the atonement so how could he even be accepted by the EA in the first place unless they were compromising. Chalke is definitely a salvation by works advocate.
