Scottish Episcopal Church permits gay marriage in historic vote
The Scottish Episcopal Church has become the first UK Anglican church to legalise gay marriage.
A motion that changes church law was passed narrowly passed on Thursday afternoon.
The historic move means Scottish Anglican ministers will be allowed to conduct same-sex weddings, setting the SEC on a collision course with other Anglican churches around the world. Conservatives are poised now to announce a controversial 'missionary bishop' to minister to those opposed to gay marriage.
The sword of judgement hangs over us.however long or short till it falls the Lord alone knows.other societies have gone further into evile.g.the canaanite nations that God used Israel to destroy because of their terribly evil practices.Sin bring s misery in its wake. May we all be on our knees

In the age of Fascism-Tojo, Hitler, Mussolini were fit subjects for concentrated examination. At the height of Philistine power- rebukes & sling stones sent toward the head of the giant brothers was correct- & after heads cut off- attention could be devoted to Temple building.
"It is the truth which is assailed in any age which tests our fidelity. It is to confess we are called, not merely to profess. "
"If I profess, with the loudest voice and the clearest exposition, every portion of the truth of God except precisely that little point which the world and the devil are at that moment attacking, I am not confessing Christ, however boldly I may be professing Christianity. Where the battle rages the loyalty of the soldier is proved; and to be steady on all the battle-field besides is mere flight and disgrace to him if he flinches at that one point."
The above quote comes from a 19th Century novel by Elizabeth Rundle Charles, called The Chronicles of the Schoenberg Cotta Family (Thomas Nelson, 1864).by a pious Anglican who was also the writer of a few hymns.
The wobbly episcopalian church has always been sodomite affirming. This illegitimate denomination, hatched from the idea of a fornicating King, is monolithic in its pronouncements that " the church has spoken ", "why our mini popes ( er bishops), have voted for this, so get in line sheep."

Woops they've spelt that wrong - Should read ......
The SATANIC Episcopal Church has become the first UK Anglican church to legalise SODOMITE marriage. May the Lord rebuke them.
Sodomy is an abomination which defiles the land according to God. Lev 18:22-25.
Thus it is SIN. Transgression against God.
"Sin is worse than the Devil
The Devil is indeed a terrible enemy, the evil and envious one, the hater of mankind. Yet he knows that he can neither damn nor hurt men without sin. Sin can do, without the Devil, that which the Devil cannot do without sin, and that is, undo men. God and the Devil are not so contrary as God and sin; for the Devil has something left which was of God, that is, his being. Sin, however, never was nor can be of God; he is neither the author of it nor the tempter to it (James 1.13). Sin made the Devil what he is. For the Devil was not made as a devil by God. It is true that the Devil now seeks to devour man, that he cannot do it apart from sin, and that he cannot compel any man to sin." (R. Venning)
a departure from the faith and teaching upheld by the overwhelming majority of Anglican provinces on the doctrine of marriage
Rev Ian Ferguson told synod the move meant going against Jesus' teaching on marriage.
'This is one of the saddest and most painful days for many of us,' he said. 'Changing our doctrine of marriage is a schismatic move that will cause serious harm to our unity and future relationship.. - 3 But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as becometh saints; 4 Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. 5 For this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. 6 Let no man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of God upon the children of disobedience. 7 Be not ye therefore partakers with them. 8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: 9(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth; ) 10 Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. 11 And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them " Eph5
