‘Gay’ Clergy Issue Splitting Churches

Cross SC Gay Clergy Issue Splitting Churches

The Church of Scotland is experiencing a rift for the same reason churches in the U.S. are breaking away from their denominations.

Members of an old Church of Scotland in Glasgow celebrated Christmas in new facilities this year after closing St. George’s Tron over the issue of the ordination of homosexuals. Before closing its doors, the church’s last service was held December 9. More than 500 worshippers came to hear Rev. Dr. Willie Philip deliver the final sermon.

That is a reflection of what is happening in reform churches worldwide, particularly in the Presbyterian Church USA, says Carmen Fowler LaBerge of the Presbyterian Lay Committee. LaBerge says it is not the church that is leaving the denomination; the denomination is leaving its members behind over theological disputes.

“We have Presbyterians who have been raised believing that the Bible is the Word of God, Jesus is the only way to salvation, that we are called to, by the power of the Holy Spirit, conform to the revealed will of God in the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments,” LaBerge accounts.

But, she continues, there is also the emerging liberal group “believing that the Bible is a reference point to the Word of God, believing that Jesus is one way to salvation, believing that we are supposed to be adapting what our view of God is to the world in which we live,” the Committee president notes.

  1. IF you truly believe the bible is Gods word, then there can NEVER be such a thing as gay clergy as the bible states absolutely that homosexuality is an abomination. Liars, frauds and lunatics all.

  2. God does not approve of homosexuals even if it is legal, it is morally wrong especially in the church.
