Mr. Kirker says that “Christians should respect and show unity, despite their differences”. He has obviously lost his way. He should be saying that “Christians should be reading the Holy Bible, and doing everything in their power to be Faithful to God”. This of course includes Matthew 19:4-6 which reads:
“Haven’t you read,” he replied, “that at the beginning the Creator ‘made them male and female,’ and said, ‘For this reason a man will leave his father and mother and be united to his wife, and the two will become one flesh’? So they are no longer two, but one. Therefore what God has joined together, let man not separate.”
Clearly these words spoken by Jesus Christ specifically teach all of us that marriage is God joining one man with one woman, and that absolutely nothing else can be considered marriage.
As far as accusing FOCA of being financed by “rich, right-wing Americans plotting to take over the Anglican Communion.”, this is so outrageous a lie as to be beyond laughable. The Episcopal Church (TEC), which is the member part of the Anglican Communion in the United States, is so liberal and revisionist, that if anything it would be “rich, left-wing Americans plotting to take over the Anglican Communion.”
Finally, what happened in Jerusalem was not a power struggle. If this is what Mr. Kirker thinks, than he is sadly mistaken. What did happen was a group of Biblically Faithful Christians sought leadership from, and communion with, God. So long as Mr. Kirker continues to delude himself into thinking that these true Christians are doing anything other than remaining Faithful to God, he will fail to understand what is really happening. He apparently does not see that the Biblically Faithful Churches are in fact growing; meanwhile those that have given into the sinful desires of secular society are dying.
Let all the religious deliriant people discuss all the fantasies they want written on that mythical stupid book. So we can focus on a reality that is not based on those crazy thoughts, and then improve the society for all and for the better. Gods are cooked on peoples minds, and in peoples minds those gods deem what they consider to be the very truth. Sheeps they are, so let them graze.
