What is with the Episcopal ‘Church’? No wonder God has moved his hand off of the denomination.
The AP states that Episcopal Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori says it’s ‘heresy’ to believe that an individual can be saved through a sinner’s prayer of repentance, “That individualist focus is a form of idolatry, for it puts me and my words in the place that only God can occupy.” Understand, Schori is more interested in ‘healing our planet earth’ than seeing souls saved from a fierce Hell. There is a balm in Gilead, to heal the sin sick soul – not a woman with a collar on with three or four degrees to back her up.
Here we go again…Salvation is so easy to understand, but it takes a huge denomination to try to disprove and ruin it and replace it with their own pomp and circumstance garbage that is not of God. And what’s sad is that these congregations believe that practicing rites and rituals ordained by an organization will get them into Heaven.
Nothing can be further from the truth. You cannot sanctify yourself without Christ. If you have ever come within a hundred miles of a Bible you know how far off in left field the Episcopal Church has gone. How can you take Jesus out of the equation and expect Salvation?
Can one take a denomination seriously that ordains open gays, approves of abortion and marries homosexuals? It’s a circus and clowns like Katharine Schori and Katherine Ragsdale are running it.
Ms. Schori also said that the view of a ‘sinner’s prayer’ is caricatured by insisting that salvation depends on reciting a specific verbal formula about Jesus. No. NO. Salvation depends on a heart change, to profess a revelation of Jesus Christ and that He died for us, ALL OF US, in spite of what and who we are. THAT is Grace and Mercy.
What Ms. Schori and Ms. Ragsdale teach their congregations will send them straight to Hell along with those that they lied to.
John 14:6 says, “Jesus said to him, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.”
If you don’t choose your Eternity, it will be chosen for you.
