A communications manager doesn't think it was smart for the Episcopal Church to essentially strip its South Carolina bishop of his ministry credentials for taking a stand for biblical principles and values.
Officials with the national church have "inhibited" Bishop Mark Lawrence, taking away his clearance to perform ministry functions for 60 days -- the time allotted for him to respond to allegations having to do with the division between the liberal, dominate faction of the church and biblically based members like himself. In response, his diocese has severed its relationship with the Episcopal Church.
Walton, Jeff (IRD)Jeff Walton of The Institute on Religion & Democracy (IRD) tells OneNewsNow the move began as the Episcopal Church approved same-sex blessings and embraced transgenderism, among other things.
"The diocese separated itself from those actions and says, We don't recognize this and We're not going to participate in many of the different functions of the broader church that are proclaiming what Bishop Lawrence referred to as a 'false gospel of indiscriminate inclusivity,'" Walton reports.

Note that the fake assurances made by the homo-Nazi leadership of this formerly Christian body that local church bodies are free to operate according to their own consciences are now shown for their obvious falsehood; like all homosexual assurances sold to us.
A church disciplining a member because he’s biblical.
We live in interesting days.
there are those that say the catholic church is evil..
there are those that say the protestant church is evil..
but, both know it is the episcopals that are truly evil..
FREEPERS...for heaven’s sake watch again Dinesh D’Souza’ 2016....this “Bible-believing Episcopalian..” this is the propaganda the secularists want for America....diminish the Republic’s values, remove anyone or thing that smacks of worthiness. Saul Alinsky preached the same thing. Isn’t it odd that a communications manager has such power against someone regardless of rank who takes a stand for biblical principles and values.? WOW what a concept!
Does this mean the bishop is unemployed?
But what’s exposed here is that by believing what the Bible teaches about sexuality, you can now be penalized by this whore of a Satanic cult.
I believe that that diocese has already voted to remove themselves from the cancer of the of the rest of the Episcopal church.
There is BO such thing as “transfenderism!” Only perversion! G-d doesn’t make mistakes, homo libs! Augh!
Just a friendly reminder: “Bible-believing” does not equal “sola Scriptura.” Otherwise you’d have to say St. Paul wasn’t Bible-Believing...
You mean Torah-believing. Just like Jesus, St. Paul was Torah believing.
Yes, I mean the Torah, but not only the Torah. What Jesus and St. Paul had in common would have been the ~46 books of the LXX.
As someone who was born and raised in the Episcopal Church, I can tell you that today’s “Episcopal Church” is not Christian, it is a cult. They don’t believe in the Bible, and that is just the start. They try to trick people into thinking they are Christian by their pseudo-Catholic rituals. But they are far less Christian than a group like the Mormons, for example.
That presiding “Bishop” is nothing but a witch.
And I mean that in the religious sense. There is a very hot place in Hell reserved for her.
in pursuit of accuracy - there is more scripture read in each Episcopal worship service than most any other protestant service - OT, Psalm, Epistle and gospel.
It is from the pulpit and church polity that the problems emerge.
I agree with G-Man. Paul was very much sola Scriptura. He argued from the Scriptures that Jesus was the Christ. I believe he probably spent the 3 days of his blindness reviewing the Scriptures that he had learned from Gamaliel in his mind.
