CHURCH OF ENGLAND TO CONSIDER SPECIAL BAPTISM SERVICE FOR "TRANSGENDERS"
CHURCH OF ENGLAND TO CONSIDER
SPECIAL BAPTISM SERVICE FOR "TRANSGENDERS"
(Friday Church News Notes, June 9, 2017, 2017, www.wayoflife.org firstname.lastname@example.org, 866-295-4143) -
At its General Synod in July, the Church of England will consider a proposal for a new baptism service "to celebrate transgender individuals who have transitioned genders" ("Church of England Considers Baptizing People into New Gender," ChristianHeadlines.com, Jun. 2, 2017). This church, so-called, already has transgender priests. One of these, Rachel Mann, said, "Trans people feel powerfully called to be recognized in their 'chosen' name. An opportunity to be publicly introduced to God is therefore significant." We are not sure what "God" Mann is talking about, but it is not the Creator God who made man male and female. Scripture teaches that the Creator forms each individual in the womb according to a preexisting plan, and being male or female is no accident of nature. True churches don't celebrate moral perversion; they preach the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ whereby sinners are converted from wickedness and given a new mind to love truth and righteousness. The transgender movement of the 21st century is the logical consequence of the feminist unisex movement of the 20th. "Thine eyes did see my substance, yet being unperfect; and in thy book all my members were written, which in continuance were fashioned, when as yet there was none of them" (Psalm 139:16).
