Bishops accused of 'apostasy' over same-sex ideology

Then-Vice President Joe Biden officiated a same-sex wedding

Bishops in the Church of England have been charged with “apostasy” for defying the biblical standard for marriage and advocating for same-sex arrangements.

It is Andrea Williams, chief of Christian Concern, who posted a statement online after the bishop of Oxford, and several others, called for the church to propagate same-sex “marriages” in the church.

“For many years it has been clear that the driving force behind these revisionists is not the study of Scripture, nor listening to the Holy Spirit but a relentless desire to mirror society’s values,” Williams explained. “This is no less than apostasy. The apostolic gospel calls all people, everywhere, to repent – to turn away from their sins and towards Christ. Such a radical change to the nature of repentance, to the doctrine of marriage, alters the gospel itself.”

Williams, citing the bishops’ “open repudiate[ion]” of church teachings, said, “The statements by Stephen Croft and other revisionist bishops that approve of same-sex relations demonstrate the need for radical change in the Church of England – in precisely the opposite direction.”

Williams continued, “The church’s official position matches the clear teaching of Scripture by saying that sex belongs within one man, one woman marriage. Nevertheless, bishops and clergy have been allowed to sow endless doubt about what Christians throughout history and around the world have recognized is God’s pattern for sexuality.”

The commentary explained, “The Church of England’s drift towards approving same-sex relations has been disastrous for Christians across the country. Faithful Christians who have upheld God’s true teaching have been labelled as safeguarding risks and lost their jobs with employers and highly paid lawyers quoting revisionist teaching from Church of England figures against them.

“Changing the Church’s teaching by approving of same-sex relations will be devastating for faithful Christians in similar situations. Those holding to the Bible’s clear teaching will be even easier to label as hateful extremists.”

Williams noted society “is reeling from the damage” from the sexual revolution, licentiousness, divorce, porn and abortion.

“Obscuring God’s beautiful design for marriage and family by submitting to the sexual revolution’s demands leaves hurting people with no hope, no opportunity for redemption and transformation.”

Williams called for true Christian leaders to “make it abundantly clear that the only change in the Church of England is a return to the clear teaching of God.”

Those who swore to teach the “doctrine of the Christian faith” but now are “in open violation” should be disciplined and removed from ministry, Williams charged.

“If they had any integrity they would resign as bishops of the Church of England and leave to minister in another context.”

EDITOR’S NOTE: Leftwing billionaire George Soros bankrolls everything evil – most recently the 75 pro-criminal “Soros district attorneys” who have transformed America’s most dynamic cities into degraded, crime-infested hellscapes of skyrocketing violent crime. Soros also funds drug legalization, euthanasia, open borders, globalism, Black Lives Matter, “defunding the police,” devaluing America’s currency and destroying her sovereignty. But why?

Whistleblower magazine reveals and explores the stunning truth: Soros, an atheist, literally says he’s “some kind of god,” obsessed with re-creating the world in his image. Here are a few actual quotes from Soros: “If truth be known, I carried some rather potent messianic fantasies with me from childhood…” “It is a sort of disease when you consider yourself some kind of god, the creator of everything, but I feel comfortable about it now since I began to live it out.” “You know, in my personal capacity I’m not actually a selfless philanthropic person. I’ve very much self-centered.” “I am kind of a nut who wants to have an impact.” “Next to my fantasies about being God, I also have very strong fantasies of being mad. … I have a lot of madness in my family. So far I have escaped it.”

Except he hasn’t “escaped it.” Not only is Soros totally mad, but he’s imposing his insanity on America. See Soros and the leftwing world he has created and funded as never before in “THE BILLIONAIRE WHO THINKS HE’S ‘GOD’: Why George Soros is obsessed with destroying America.”
