Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain… unless you’re a “progressive Christian,” then it’s okay.
When the Son of Man returns, will He find faith in the earth?
Maybe–if He stays away from certain churches.
An ordained Presbyterian pastor, Rebecca Todd Peters, who is a professor at Elon University, has authored a book titled Trust Women: a Progressive Christian Argument for Reproductive Justice (https://www.lifenews.com/2018/08/29/presbyterian-pastor-if-christians-truly-value-women-they-will-support-abortion/). Yowsah, yowsah, says the preacher: if Christians truly “value” women, why, they’ll support abortion!
Not to be outdone, the United Methodist Church is proposing to change its kinda-sorta-not exactly position on abortion to “We support abortion!”
Both the Presbyterian “minister” and the Methodist churchmen resort to the euphemism, “reproductive health.” Like, pregnancy is a disease and the baby is the symptom. Like, a woman going to have a baby is not “healthy.”
Look at the title of Ms. Peters’ book. “Progressive Christian” is surely an oxymoron, like “colossal olives.” “Progressive Christians” oppose God’s word at every turn. They hate God’s word. And as for “reproductive justice,” what is that? Justice for whom? Certainly not for the baby in the womb. But when liberals speak of “justice,” it becomes a dirty word.
What is with these churches? They “marry” homosexuals, denounce God the Father as a relic of some imaginary “patriarchy”–or is that term now “kyriarchy,” or “archiarchy”?–butcher the scriptures, and then wonder why they’re hemorrhaging members. At the rate they’re going, the Presbyterian Church USA won’t see the 22nd century.
Then again, you might say that for our whole global humanist lunatic civilization.
