God: Male or Gender-Neutral? Episcopal Church Begins Debate

CBN: Since before the days of the early church, God has always been addressed in prayers as a male, including terms like Father, King, and Lord.

In the New Testament, Jesus taught his disciples to pray to God using a male term. In Luke 11:1-4, one of the disciples asked Jesus to teach them how to pray. “And He said to them, When you pray, say: ‘Father, hallowed be Your name.'” (NASV)

Now the Episcopal Church is debating about overhauling its Book of Common Prayer, which is used in Episcopal congregations worldwide.

The debate centers on making sure that prayers in the book are clear that God is not male, but doesn’t have a gender.  more …

Opinion: And there is more, including:

  • New same-sex marriage liturgy
  • Transgender naming ceremonies
  • Defined duties concerning earth conservation

Denominations are making a hard left:

The Catholic pontiff is ordering his Bishops to mobilize masses on the US border against the US president, while a Catholic church in Indianapolis placed its Nativity scene behind barbed wire.

The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) full assembly voted of 51% in favor, 49% against (a difference of 7 votes), to pass a resolution approved by the Middle East Committee, calling for divestment from some American companies that do business with Israel.

When he rises to power, (Revelation 6:1-2, 13:1-2) Antichrist will be worshiped by the denominations.

  1. I have a very tough time thinking that my Lord and Savior is some transgender effeminate – “Hi fellas” – type with a flower in his hair. I also don’t believe that He is an evolved descendant of a chimpanzee. The greater “visible church” is so screwed up they’ll espouse and believe anything but the truth. I often feel much of the time that man is the stupidest creature walking the face of the earth. [Sorry for my cynicism]
