San Francisco's Largest Evangelical Megachurch to Allow Non-Celibate Homosexuals to Be Members

Prophecy Sign:  The Apostate Last Days Church


Could you have imagined 20 years ago just where they Churches would be heading in a matter of a couple decades?  If the church has come to this point in relatively short order, just what will the church look like in another 20 years, (should the Lord tarry)?  We shudder to think.

For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires, 2 Timothy 4:3 NASB

San Francisco's Largest Evangelical Megachurch to Allow Non-Celibate Homosexuals to Be Members
The Elder Board of San Francisco's largest evangelical church, City Church, has announced that the megachurch will end its practice of preventing LGBT people from becoming members if they are unwilling or unable to practice lifelong celibacy. "Our pastoral practice of demanding life-long 'celibacy,' by which we meant that for the rest of your life you would not engage your sexual orientation in any way, was causing obvious harm and has not led to human flourishing," Sr. Pastor Fred Harrell writes in a letter "on behalf of the Board and for the Gospel." The pastor cites social science research, saying it points to "skyrocketing rates of depression, suicide and addiction" among the LGBT people. "The generally unintended consequence has been to leave many people feeling deeply damaged, distorted, unlovable, unacceptable, and perverted," he says.

U.S. Presbyterian Church close to accepting same-sex marriage
The U.S. Presbyterian Church was close on Tuesday to approving a change in the wording of its constitution to include same-sex marriage, a move which threatens to further splinter one of the largest U.S. mainline Protestant denominations. The 171 regional "presbyteries" or local leadership bodies of the church have been voting on whether to change the wording to call marriage a contract "between a woman and a man" to being "between two people, traditionally a man and a woman." The definition under debate is contained in the Louisville, Kentucky-based church's "Book of Order," part of its constitution. The change requires a simple majority of 86 votes, and only one more vote is needed, according to the Presbyterian Lay Committee, a conservative group which opposes the change. The vote could come by Tuesday night.
