Every Knee Shall Bow to the Alphabet Religion

Last Thursday, it was decided that the Church of England will now say "prayers of blessing" over so-called same-sex marriages for the first time in England's history following a vote at the General Synod, the legislative body of the established church of England.

The three houses of the Synod voted in favor of officially recognizing gay marriages for the first time, with priests now being empowered to give their blessings to the unions. 

It is written in Scripture that "every knee shall bow and every tongue confess."

The West has exchanged the Truth for a lie.

Now the Church of England, too many America churches, and other western countries are bowing at the altar of a new religion: The alphabet religion---LGBTQIA+.

The gospel message of the alphabet religion is, "Alter your biblical beliefs about human sexuality and marriage...or else."

Be informed, not misled.

The vote was overwhelmingly approved by the House of Bishops, which supported the measure by a margin of 36 to four, with two members of the house abstaining from the vote. However, the issue was far more contested amongst the lower houses of the Synod, with the House of Clergy backing the measure by a vote of 111 to 85, with three abstentions, and by the House of Laity which supported the move by a margin of  103 to 92, with five abstaining members.

Note that the highest order of leadership expressed the strongest support for dismantling biblical marriage.

In a joint statement, the two most senior bishops in the Church, Justin Welby, the Archbishop of Canterbury, and Stephen Cottrell, the Archbishop of York, said: “It has been a long road to get us to this point."

“For the first time, the Church of England will publicly, unreservedly, and joyfully welcome same-sex couples in church,” they told the press.

The two archbishops acknowledged that “deep differences” still remain within the Church, and said: “As Archbishops, we are committed to respecting the conscience of those for whom this goes too far and to ensure that they have all the reassurances they need in order to maintain the unity of the Church as this conversation continues.”

"Goes too far?" Do they not know that rewriting and revising Scripture is always going too far?

“We hope that today’s thoughtful, prayerful debate marks a new beginning for the Church as we seek a way forward, listening to each other and most of all to God. Above all, we continue to pray, as Jesus himself prayed, for the unity of his church and that we would love one another.”

They are not "most of all, listening to God." God has already condemned what they are leading their church to accept and celebrate.

They may be listening to "each other" but they are certainly not listening to the author and the finisher of our faith.

Not every Church of England leader is bowing a knee to the alphabet religion.

The move drew considerable rebukes from some within the Church’s legislative body, including barrister and lay General Synod member Daniel Matovu, who characterized it as a “fiasco,” claiming that blessing same-sex marriages ignores the teachings of scripture.

“The Bishops say that this is about people, it is about much more than that, it’s about the word of God and about Jesus Christ, the author, and perfecter of our faith,” he said before citing verses from the Bible which he said demonstrated that marriage is only intended to be between a man and a woman.

“Where does the Church get its doctrine on marriage from? It comes directly from God,” Matovu continued, adding: “The Bishops cannot see, apparently, that the draft prayers are out of sync with, inconsistent with, and undermine the doctrine of marriage as in Canon B:30." 

The controversial decision came just days after the Church announced that it would be launching a project on gender-neutral language in which phrases referring to God, such as “Our Father”, may be scrapped or replaced by either feminine alternatives or gender-neutral variants.

The Alphabet's religion demands a re-order of human sexuality and a new order of faith.

The Church of England is set to begin a new outreach they call the "Liturgical Pronoun Project."

The new effort will begin looking into using more gender-neutral language to make God to be more inclusive.

The Bible clearly states that homosexuality is sin. The new religion of LGBTQIA+ clearly states that Creator God made a mistake, or He misspoke when he said He created male and female in His image and likeness.

First, let me be clear. The Bible says in Romans 3:23 that "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God."

And because we disagree with the lifestyle of an individual doesn’t mean we don’t care for that person.

But the Bible unequivocally and clearly condemns same-sex relationships: Leviticus 18:22, Leviticus 20:13, and Romans, 1:26–28. And there's more.

The Bible instructs us to not be conformed to the world but to be transformed by the renewing of our minds.

The LGBTQIA+ movement is trying to find peace and meaning in their lifestyle and chosen behavior in the context of biblical Christianity. In order to do that they must either accept Christ as their personal Savior and ask forgiveness and deliverance for their sins or change the fundamental teaching of Christianity.

Homosexual behavior is sin. It's not the only sin, but it is a sin and the Bible is clear that God strongly condemns all sin, including that sin. Sometimes, in particular that sin.

Rather than seeking forgiveness and deliverance, the LGBTQIA+ movement is demanding rights. One of those rights, in their mind, is apparently to rewrite and revise the Bible. 

They are demanding that the 2000-year-old Church of Jesus Christ change its beliefs and doctrines to accommodate their sexual behavior.

In the minds of the LGBTQIA+ Jesus Christ did not die to forgive their sins, He came to affirm their sins.

They are demanding that Nature and God's natural order for gender and human sexuality be changed.

They are creating a new religion. 

Their god is equity, their doctrine is the LGBTQIA+ ideology, and it’s clergy is the far-left liberal media, immoral politicians, and dissident elders and clergies such as those in England, the Presbyterian in America, the Methodist Church, and others within the once Protestant and reformed churches.

It's now more important than ever that we as Christians fight for the right to be biblical Christians and to stand firm and contend earnestly for our faith. And our God-given freedoms.

The Bible says that at the name of Jesus, every knee shall bow, and every tongue confess that He and He alone is Lord of all. 

Be Informed. Be Discerning. Be Vigilant. Be Engaged. Be Prayerful.
