Church of Scotland issues guidance to congregations on transgender churchgoers
The Church of Scotland has produced a new resource to help congregations provide pastoral support for transgender people and their families and friends after finding that some parishioners were subject to abuse.

In the 30-page booklet consisting of a series of true stories from transgender people and others, congregants describe being called an 'abomination' by other Christians, living double lives and concealing their identities because they are fearful of the reactions of fellow churchgoers.

The booklet, which contains the stories of 11 people and is entitled Diverse Gender Identities and Pastoral Care, has been issued by the Kirk today at the behest of the Church's general assembly. ...

This reminds me of the Medieval theologians' discussion of how many angels can fit on the head of a pin. First, Scotland is a very small country. The Church of Scotland probably has very few branches within that small country, and as some posters have already commented below, few people attend. Then, look at the numbers of transgender folk. Let's say they are a subset of the total "LGBT" population. They make up maybe 2 to 3 percent of the entire population, so let's say 20 to 30 of 1,000. Now, out of those 20 to 30 people, 15 to 20 are males, so that leaves 5 to 10 women, and of that small group, only 1 or 2 are transgenders (about .001 of the entire population).
I will be there are more people in wheelchairs or blind that need adaption in many church buildings. Why bother with transgenders!

I heard the news today that our local branch of the Church of Scotland is closing down due to lack of interest.
Possibly one of the branches in the next town will also demise from any witness.

Of course the first member of the Church of Scotland to leave the premises was the Holy Spirit. Thus the religious dung they 'preach' which is Liberalism, is of no consequence, service or interest to God or Christians.

Church buildings are disappearing from these British shores like rats from a sinking ship. God clearly is removing any witness from these reprobates since with blindness, ignorance and alienation from the life of God there is no future in teaching them the truth. The path they have chosen is the wide road.

Eph 4:17 ..... in the vanity of their mind,
18 Having the understanding darkened, being alienated from the life of God through the ignorance that is in them, because of the blindness of their heart:
19 Who being past feeling have given themselves over unto lasciviousness, to work all uncleanness with greediness."

Yet again we see the apostate satanic Liberalist church of Scotland demonstrating it is UNBiblical, UnChristian and unclean.
This is NOT a church in Scotland it is an abomination.

Quote:-
"A Church of Scotland minister has told an LGBT festival in Perth that the church apologises for any "cruelty and injustice" it might have caused.

Rev Scott Burton is the first Church of Scotland minister to officially open a festival celebrating LGBT rights.

He said it was an "incredible honour" to play a key role in the first Perthshire Pride.

The event began at 13:00 in the Perth Concert Hall plaza.

The church's General Assembly endorsed a call last year to "take stock of its history of discrimination at different levels against gay people" and to apologise "individually and corporately."
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-tayside-central-45143315

May the Lord rebuke this fool in his ignorance and as a Blind Guide in a satanic church.

What in effect he is doing is to deny repentance thus deny salvation.
No repentance No salvation.

This is the voice of the antichrist.

Come Lord Jesus, Come soon. Amen.

BWS to answer you, methinks he would treat like the Harlot it's it the way he opined against the Church of Rome ...
I am sure The Lord has removed the lamp stand of this abomination of a so called church.
As John U.K. sais, he would prefer to read guidelines from the Free Church, which is a proper Presbyterian fellowship.
The current COS is a sham, in addition, they passed a resolution that said Jews have no historical right to Israel.
May God have mercy on them

Don't know how the Free Kirk is faring these days but our brothers of Ulster are likely to point to God's word as their response and statement.

I would prefer to see guidelines written by The Free Church of Scotland (cont.)

Or The Free Presbyterian Church of Ulster.

Then we would see the biblical position not a man-made idea.

Many churches have written guidelines for transsexuals posted in prominent locations. They say "EXIT".

"Church(?)" of Scotland demon-strating itself to be UNBiblical and UNChristian yet again. How far will this evil church be allowed to descend into the bowels of Satan's ideologies?
Just as with sodomite behaviour the CofS directs people AWAY from salvation (away from crucified Christ) - in teaching sin is acceptable. Satanic.

Quote;
"The rates of suicide among transgender people show the brokenness this choice causes. Paul McHugh, former Johns Hopkins University psychiatrist in chief, has noted in the Wall Street Journal that the suicide rate among transgender individuals is 20 times higher than in the normal population.4 Embracing transgender identity at the cultural level does not produce happiness and wholeness. It goes hand in hand with personal confusion and disorder.

Second, we should celebrate the beauty of God’s creative design. The Christian church and the godly family should be a festival of happiness. We should rejoice that God in His sovereign wisdom has opened our eyes to see that He has made us according to His perfect design. Manhood and womanhood aren’t Plan B. God Himself has made us as we are. We are the pinnacle of His creation."

There is no such thing as being transgender according to Biology. Why are a lot of individuals living in fantasyland by believing that there is such a thing as transgender?

It is difficult to tell from the way the story is spun how Biblical truth was applied within an individual kirk. Not telling someone who is obviously in sin that his or her sin is obvious isn't very loving or caring. But instead, those who spoke the truth no matter how gentle or loving - or not - are upheld as those in the wrong for daring to properly apply Biblical truth instead of accepting their sin as if it were acceptable. And thus the old "call evil good and good evil" thing plays out again. Nothing new under the sun.

And [Josiah] brake down the houses of the Sodomites, that were in the house of the Lord, where the women wove hangings for the grove. - 2 Kings 23:7
