Is A 'Liberal Wing' Of The Presbyterian Church Morphing It Into A 'Cult'?Topics: Faith
Hey, I'm no theologist - but you gotta admit, this is political correctness gone berserk, and then some. What's in these people's Kool Aid?
(BIRMINGHAM, Ala.) -- At some Presbyterian churches the Holy Trinity -- "Father, Son and Holy Spirit" -- will be out. "Mother, Child and Womb" is in."""Mother, Child and Womb" and "Rock, Redeemer, Friend,"" ... say whaaaaat?
Delegates to the national assembly of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) voted yesterday to "receive" a policy paper on sex-inclusive language for the Trinity, a step short of approving it. Church officials are enabled to propose "experimental liturgies" with "alternative phrasings" for the Trinity, but congregations won't be required to use them.
Besides "Mother, Child and Womb" and "Rock, Redeemer, Friend," options include:
• "Lover, Beloved, Love"
• "Creator, Savior, Sanctifier"
• "King of Glory, Prince of Peace, Spirit of Love"
2000 years of Christian teaching ignored, because us "know-it-alls" in today's modern secular society (and apparently the Presbyterians are becoming secularists with their own little "special" religion/cult) can make everything better.
Hey, wearing my Christian hat - aren't we placing a little too much importance to our own opinion?
Wearing my Muslim hat, hey, these people are nuts, they have no roots, they don't even have any faith in their own traditions, so how in the hell are we suppose to think they have faith in anything? They are at the root of what's wrong with Western society - homosexuality, turning the meanings of their traditions upside down - hell, I'll stick to Friday prayers and imams making up their own interpretations of the Koran as they go along. What's the difference!
