The morally and theologically bankrupt Episcopal Church, long given over to Satan and all his minions and which likely boasts less than 1% believers within their ranks, further cemented their reputation as an enemy of God with a “guilty” ruling against the last clerical holdout who had been contesting the Church’s position on the acceptance of gay marriage.
The Episcopal Church of North America concluded a disciplinary hearing last week and unanimously determined that William Love, the Bishop who presides over the diocese of Albany, violated canon law after he wrote a letter to the churches in his diocese prohibiting them from performing same-sex weddings.
Bishop Love, who by all accounts has been fighting the good fight within the Episcopal church and is one of the last faithful men standing, was savaged by the disciplinary hearing because he refused to comply with Resolution B012. The Resolution, passed in 2018, requires any priests unwilling to perform gay marriages to get another priest willing to preside over that blasphemy to do so in his place.
Love issued a now-widely circulated letter in 2018 which called out the resolution for the monstrous perversion it is, writing that:
The Episcopal Church and Western Society have been hijacked by the “Gay Rights Agenda” which is very well organized, very strategic, very well financed, and very powerful. Satan is having a heyday bringing division into the Church over these issues and is trying to use the Church to hurt and destroy the very ones we love and care about by deceiving the leadership of the Church into creating ways for our gay and lesbians brothers and sisters to embrace their sexual desires rather than to repent and seek God’s love and healing grace. B012 plays right into this…
It is in direct conflict and contradiction to God’s intent for the sacrament of marriage as revealed through Holy Scripture.
B012 ignores God’s Word regarding marriage and thus ignores the authority of Holy Scripture. When asked about marriage and divorce, Jesus stated, ‘But from the beginning of creation, God made them male and female. Therefore a man shall leave his father and mother and hold fast to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.’
As a result of losing the hearing, he has opted not to appeal, believing it would have no good result or impact. Love will learn of his fate in a few weeks, with the consensus that he will be defrocked and excommunicated from the Church, and thus removing the last faithful Bishop from their midst.
In recent years, Episcopal congregations who could not abide by the apostasy of their denomination created and fled to the Anglican Church of North America (ACNA), which holds to the biblical view of marriage. Despite their faithful belief on the issue of same-sex marriage and morality, however, the ACNA still have several problematic beliefs, such as the acceptance of the ordination of women.
