A Compromising Church

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY NOVEMBER 14, 2017

         THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND HAS LONG BEEN A COMPROMISER WITH THE SPIRIT OF THE AGE. IT IS ALSO ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A CHURCH BECOMES ESTABLISHED AND SUPPORTED BY THE STATE.

         THE LATEST IS A PUBLICATION CALLED “VALUING ALL GOD’S CHILDREN.” IT’S SUPPOSEDLY AIMED AT CURTAILING THE BULLYING OF CHILDREN CONFUSED ABOUT THEIR GENDER IDENTITY. IT CALLS FOR CHILDREN TO BE ALLOWED TO “PLAY WITH THE MANY CLOAKS OF IDENTITY,” MEANING TIARAS FOR BOYS AND TOOL BELTS FOR GIRLS, AS TWO EXAMPLES.

THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND LONG AGO CEASED PREACHING A GOSPEL OF SALVATION AND BEGAN A CAMPAIGN TO GAIN PUBLIC APPROVAL. BUT FEWER AND FEWER PEOPLE ATTEND CHURCH IN ENGLAND SO HOW IS THAT STRATEGY WORKING?

THERE IS A CONSERVATIVE WING WITHIN THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND BUT IT IS A MINORITY AND DOESN’T INFLUENCE LEADERSHIP.

I THINK OF THE VERSES: “DO NOT BE CONFORMED TO THIS WORLD, BUT BE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND,” AND “ANYONE WHO WOULD BE A FRIEND OF THE WORLD CANNOT BE A FRIEND OF GOD.”

CHILDREN CONFUSED ABOUT GENDER IDENTITY SHOULD RECEIVE BIBLICAL BASED COUNSELING AND HELP. THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND IS OFFERING NEITHER.
