Take Up and Read: Tuesday Edition

Here is an account of a presbyterian church in Pittsburgh becoming friendly to sodomites. Please note a former pastor who was married for 29 years and then divorced his wife because he found he was gay. Also note that the church in the article has grown since it became more friendly to sodomites. Notice also that they talk like Christians, using words like "submit joyfully to the Lordship of Jesus Christ in all aspects of life." And they claim to be guided by the Scriptures. All in all it gives a sobering picture of where the American church is headed.

Several months ago the Bayly Brothers posted an article from a former sodomite. An amazing and eye opening article. Not for the faint of heart or for young children. But worth the read.

Thanks for pointing this out, Pastor Jones. It's funny, we drove up and down Murray a lot while we were staying in Pittsburgh. Our apartment was very close to Squirrel Hill and we used to dine and walk around up there.

Anyway, Geoff and I remember seeing the rainbow flag on the door of the church with a woman pastor's name on their front lawn. I think we may have even talked to our kids about what those things mean and how they have in actuality moved away from God's word. They can call it whatever they want, but this is not Biblical grace. The Bible is adamant that you cannot call evil good and good evil.

Let the saints be joyful in glory, let them sing aloud on their beds, let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two edged sword in their hand, to execute vengeance on the nations, and punishments on the peoples; to bind the kings with chains and their nobles with fetters of iron. Psalm 149:5-8
