An Episcopal pot calls Christian kettle black

ANAHEIM, CA (AP) "Episcopal Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori says it's "heresy" to believe that an individual can be saved through a sinner's prayer of repentance.

"In her opening address to the church's General Conference in California, Jefferts Schori called that "the great Western heresy: that we can be saved as individuals, that any of us alone can be in right relationship with God . . ."


We conservative Christians have been referred to as “special interests” and “terrorists” by our godless government. And now even a wayward mainline liberal denominational leader and blind Pharisee, Katharine Jefferts Schori, has accused us of being “heretics” because of our belief in the exclusivity of the gospel of Jesus Christ, that He, and only He, provides the way of escape from the wrath and ultimate judgment of God.

Yes, this false shepherd, herself a heretical minion of Satan, the great deceiver, has declared simple faith in Jesus to be heresy. What blasphemy, what pride, what arrogance, what foolishness this woman dressed in sheep’s clothing dares to declare.

In addition, six other bishop in this decadent and demon-driven denomination is urging the Episcopal church to adapt a set of deviant unbiblical same-sex ‘marriage’ rituals. This particular demonination, like many other so-called mainline protestant church organizations, which have lost its way, is no more Christian than the alleged occupier of the oval office, Barry Soetoro a/k/a Barack Hussein Obama. Jesus said,
“You shall know they are My disciples (true Christians) by their fruit.”
.

Sorry, Dr. Schori, you are dead wrong - spiritually and intellectually. Jesus Christ died to give us an opportunity, individually, to come to God and to be made whole, to be restored, to be justified, to be made right in His eyes. The movie, Passion of the Christ, portrays the sacrifice that God permitted His Son to endure, in order for all mankind to have this opportunity. God offers us eternal life, freedom from the power and penalty of sin, if but we confess our sins and sinful condition apart from Him and to acknowledge Jesus to be the only means, the only way to get to God. Most conclusively, Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father, except through Me." Dr. Schori, how much more clear can God make it for us?

I agree with you, of course, that we can be saved as individuals, but salvation as a people, a nation, or a church congregation is an important concept that is often lacking in our churches today. In the Old Testament, God's judgments were most often on nations, not individuals. Even in the New Testament we see God's judgment on an entire church congregation in Revelation 2:5, etc. Likewise, we may be saved individually, but lose our salvation as a nation under God if we don't repent soon.
