This is the sad "norm" these days. It's typical that when these people lose their positions it's not because of their doctrinal errors or false teachings, it's because of a power struggle or sex scandal.

 

The one cast aside is usually replaced by another who holds the same sort of doctrinal positions as his predecessor.

 

Itching ears and all that.

For this segment of christianity this is nothing new. We've seen the same sort of thing with regards to women pastors, pre-marital sex, adultery, living together unwed, and even in matters of abortion and homosexuality.

 

Really, considering how many churches today not only accept open homosexuals but even ordain open homosexuals, the fact this guy doesn't want to address the subject isn't really even news. Hillsong, Osteen and these sorts have long avoided the "tough" portions of Scripture.

The Pope's call for unity is under the banner of the RCC. As always, the RCC is willing to bend and accommodate in order to achieve their ends, but it must be done under the RCC.

 

The Pope is now taking flak for seeming to open the doors to accepting homosexuals within the RCC. This should not come as a surprise as the RCC has always been willing to compromise in order to draw more into her folds.

 

Unfortunately, many non-RCC churches have or are in the process of taking the same path of tolerating homosexuality, accepting homosexuality and finally ordaining homosexuality. I've read many articles regarding churches in Africa and elsewhere, which to many American churches shame are much more biblically sound than those which helped plant them, of how they are being excluded and/or ignored when it comes to mattes within their denominations or affiliations and the issue of homosexuality. It's actually refreshing to see these churches taking bold, public stands upon the Word of God as they rebuke what might be called their parent churches for falling away from the Word of God.

Praise God for His wonderful workings! I rejoice with you for this great news.

 

My prayers continue for your daughter. May she have ears to hear and a heart to obey the calling of the Lord.
