GONE: 'Thou shall not commit adultery.'

HT to Kevin Tracy blog for this: What’s Missing From The Presbyterian IX Commandments?

From the Catholic News Agency:
Reaction continues to the decisions of the 218th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church USA (PCUSA), which took place between June 21 and June 28. The assembly nullified proscriptions against sexual behavior outside of marriage and called for a vote to delete the church’s constitutional standard requiring fidelity in marriage and chastity in singleness. It also initiated a process that could remove mention of the Bible’s prohibition against homosexuality form the Heidelberg Catechism.

Note: PCUSA confirms the adoption of the Carlin School of Theology revision of The 9 or 10 Commandments; give or take a little depending on how you feel. View video below:

  1. Holy crap! Literally!

    I am once again reminded why I revoked my 'membership'.

  2. We expect compromise from those of the world, but part of the Christian Church begin to do so, we have some serious problems. Remember, though, this is a war against principalities - and they are throwing at us everything thing they can to distract us as much as they can -

  3. This is so sad and we must do what we can within our own churches to stop the spread of this kind of humanistic pollution of our faith!

  4. It is no wonder that "churches" are turning more and more worldly with each passing day. Many have forgotten or set aside, as it seems this and other denominations have done, the most simple of principles set forth in the Scripture.

    When Jesus gave His charge in Matthew 28 to "Go into all the world and make disciples in all the nations" (paraphrased), He prevented any argument by “showing them his badge,” so to speak. "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth." He is "far above all rule and authority and power and dominion, and every name that is named" (Eph. 1:21). Parts of the church have been pretty good about telling people they need to be saved, but for the most part, the last part of the Matthew 28 charge has been left out: "and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you."
    It is no wonder that we are in the mess we are in. We get people saved so they won’t go to hell and send them out into the world like sheep among wolves before they are baptized in the Holy Spirit and trained for service. It is no wonder that people so easily turn to their "natural" inclinations.

    Why? Because, for the most part, Christians have not been taught and do not practice 2 Timothy 2:15: "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, RIGHTLY DIVIDING the word of truth" [emphasis mine]. Jesus said, “Whosoever will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me” “He [Jesus] must increase, but I [me] must decrease” (John 3:30).

    Hebrews 5:12-14: "For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you have need again for someone to teach you the elementary principles of the oracles of God, and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is not accustomed to the word of righteousness, for he is an infant. But solid food is for the mature, who because of practice have their senses trained to discern good and evil."

    New disciples can be trained in all of these points above and how to bring glory to Jesus Christ by being holy in all of their conduct (1 Peter 1:15), but it must first start in the pulpit. I think it has been proven that the social, seeker-friendly gospel works for growing big churches, but it does not work for maturing disciples. Let's return to the biblical pattern and let's grow up and start making a difference in the church and the world.

    It's time for the Church to move on to maturity, or few of us will be ready for the days ahead.

    Forgive us, Lord!

  5. I remember reading something about what happens to people who tamper with the word of GOD.
