“For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine.” (2 Timothy 4.3)

New Testament Challenge, Day 33 – 1 and 2 Timothy

The time has come my dear brothers and sisters. The Episcopal Church of America has recently elected their second openly gay bishop citing discrimination and oppression as the reason homosexuals haven’t taken their rightful position in the Church. (see article below for details) I will not endeavor to debate the Episcopal Church of America here, but rather will simply point out that when truth becomes false and false becomes truth then God has been rejected.

God is the truth and light. Jesus Christ says, “I am the light of the world.” (John 8.12) and “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” (John 14.6) When a church begins to proclaim teachings that are against the teachings of Christ, they are not teaching Christ. Of course this practice is not unique to the Episcopal Church but is rampant throughout the world because the world is of “their father the devil” (see John 8.44) There is no other interpretation for this.

Stand fast to the teaching of Christ who became incarnate for our salvation. Put Christ back into Christmas and never cease proclaiming the Gospel of Christ. “Be watchful in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.” (2 Timothy 4.5)
