COE bishops publish guidance on welcoming transgender people
It encourages clergy to be 'creative and sensitive' in using liturgy to enable people to mark a major transition in their lives.
It warns against stereotyping trans people, saying they are 'as diverse as any other social group and ministers should avoid stereotyping'. However, it says it is appropriate to 'identify the preference of a transgender person in respect of their name and gendered (or other) pronouns'.
The guidance formally commends the incorporation of the existing rite for the Affirmation of Baptismal Faith into services which mark gender transition....
Ezek 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die."
The sinner may change the flesh. But cannot change the soul.
The soul of the sinner will stand before GOD on judgment day exactly as GOD has created him/her. Rom 2:5 But after thy hardness and impenitent heart treasurest up unto thyself wrath against the day of wrath and revelation of the righteous judgment of God; 6 Who will render to every man according to his deeds:"
GOD created two separate and different 'authorities' in mankind. One is the authority of male. The other is the authority of female. Both are provided with a different role and function in life on earth.
The sinner who rejects the way they were created by GOD is rejecting GOD's decision and GOD's actions, and GOD's laws.
This is an abomination to God and will incur the wrath of God.
The quote "church" unquote, which yields to this evil transgression is rejecting repentance and salvation. Thus do they reject Crucified Christ and His blood. Prov 17:15.
Yet again the Church of England proves its religion of Liberalism is the abomination of human ideology and NOT of God or Scripture.
Might as well let on in...the whole institution is a white-washed tomb.
Matthew 23:27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
