A New Song for the PCUSA

Since 14F has passed, we all know where to go if you:
1) Are married, but don't think your sex life should be confined to your spouse.
2) Can't abide being married to just one person at a time.
3) Are single and want to "test the milk" before you "buy the cow."
4) Reject the basics of human biological gender.



Let's face it. Gay clergy isn't the problem. Making the fundamentals of the faith optional is the disease...confusion over the sexes is just a symptom. As professor Alice Linsley reminds us: "Dialogue with revisionists is impossible."

“Not to oppose error is to approve it; and not to defend truth is to suppress it, and, indeed, to neglect to confound evil men - when we can do it - is no less a sin than to encourage them”
St. Felix III, Bishop of Rome, 483-492

Best wishes, though, to all my friends of evangelical persuasion still on that ship. May you find a lifeboat soon.

Refrain:



  • Have mercy, O God,
    have mercy, O God

    1. Have mercy, O God, in your kindness,
      in love and compassion set me free,
      O wash me more and more from my guilt and my sin.
      O cleanse me, O God, O cleanse me, O God.
    2. A pure heart create for me, O God,
      your Spirit, O Lord, within my heart,
      your presence, O God, is my only desire.
      O heal me, O God, O heal me, O God.

    3. Salvation, the joy that you send to me,
      your presence and Spirit give me strength.
      Your glory and praise I will sing and proclaim.
      O save me, O God, O save me, O God.

    The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) an apostate denomination

    Here lies the boundary of a Christian church that knows itself to be bound by the authority of Scripture. Those who urge the church to change the norm of its teaching on this matter must know that they are promoting schism. If a church were to let itself be pushed to the point where it ceased to treat homosexual activity as a departure from the biblical norm, and recognized homosexual unions as a personal partnership of love equivalent to marriage, such a church would stand no longer on biblical ground but against the unequivocal witness of Scripture. A church that took this step would cease to be the one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church. ("Should We Support Gay Marriage? No") Wolfhart Pannenberg


    More analysis at Viola Larson's blog...

    I'm pleased to see that others are pointing out what we've known for a long time. This is the end game for egalitarianism. When men and women become interchangeable in the liturgical context of authoritative public ministry, you can't stoop the implication that other liturgical / public authoritative acts are bound by sexual/gender distinctions.
