United Reformed Church to allow same-sex marriages
United Reformed Church has voted in favour of allowing its local churches to register for and conduct same-sex marriages.
The decision was taken earlier today at the URC's General Assembly in Southport
The Assembly voted in favour of the proposal by a large majority, 240 votes to 21. It means URC churches wishing to register to hold same-sex marriages will be able to start the process immediately.
The vote marks a decisive move for the URC, which considered the issue inconclusively in 2014 and at a special Assembly in June last year, which concluded that the denomination could not express a single view on the question and that the decision had to rest with the local church. Today's vote confirmed that decision....
Another counterfeit church, a false witness has abandoned the Word and Laws of God to uphold sin and approve Sodom and Gomorrah in its midst.
God's wrath is upon this satanic "church."
"Psalm 28:3 Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their hearts. 4 Give them according to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them after the work of their hands; render to them their desert. 5 Because they regard not the works of the LORD, nor the operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build them up."
"Romans 1:24 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 26 For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections ....."
See how you know about this subject John UK since it has roots in Wales. I'm sure it is heartbreaking for you to see something with roots in your backyard going so far from the clear truth of God's Word.

That's about it, Kev.
The URC is a merger of churches which were formerly Reformed (in some shape and form) and because of decline, decided to join forces to stave off extinction. Wiki says:
The URC is the result of a union between the Presbyterian Church of England and the Congregational Church in England and Wales in 1972 and subsequent unions with the Re-formed Association of Churches of Christ in 1981 and the Congregational Union of Scotland in 2000.
The URC is fully ecumenical and apostate in the UK, and is a disgrace to the Christian faith.
It is the inevitable conclusion for any apostate church.
We're living in funny days, and need to support and encourage one another in the right ways, following the Lord with a whole heart, a single eye, being filled with his light, holding fast to scripture, not permitting the devil's schemes to deceive us, keeping up private prayer and close communion with Christ (I need to work on that), always abounding in the work of the Lord, doing his will, constantly praising him for grace and the salvation he has bestowed, keeping the world at arm's length, mortifying the flesh, et al.
