This is what happens and will continue to happen, when the Church has become a business of more money, and more people.How these folks can compromise Christ and still call themselves Christians is just unbelievable. I guess since they said this "ordain gay ministers who are in same sex civil partnerships". Civil partnerships? you might fool yourself, and some of the people with this but you won't fool God. No Christian wants to see anyone go to hell, but people that compromise God's word like this, are headed on a fast track south. If the "real" truth were known, there is no other reason for Churches to compromise the word of God, other than money and to increase their congregation, they work hand in hand. I guess we might say, frustration is the catalyst of our faith!
May God give those 183 dissenters boldness to go before the Throne of God and rely upon Him and not man. Raise up Scottish warriors to wield the Sword of the Spirit in Truth, Love and Honor.In Jesus Name
