A Troubling Bishop

The homosexual Episcopal Bishop Gene Robinson from New Hampshire, went on record last week complimenting Gay and Lesbian Presbyterians for creating “holy chaos” and “enormous confusion” in the Presbyterian Church USA, according to a report in the online Christian Post. He said this to a gathering of Homosexual activists who call themselves “More Light Presbyterians.”  So this is what we have come to, that a presumably biblically knowledgeable Episcopal Bishop can encourage the fomenting of confusion in another Protestant denomination even though the Bible says that “God is not a God of confusion but of peace” (I Cor. 14:33). And this disturbance of the peace of the churches is justified in the name of a sexual freedom nowhere granted as acceptable in the Bible, as 2000 years of Christian history testifies. Is not this sort of rhetoric more akin to the “father of lies” (John 8:44) than a Christian Bishop? What Bishop Robinson is saying would doubtlessly put the Apostles into a series of flaming rebukes. Dante would have to find another ring of the Inferno to accommodate such a blatant presumption. There is no cause that justifies the sowing of confusion and chaos in the churches. If people cannot be persuaded by rational biblical arguments, or by holy example, then perhaps there are no reasons for them to change their long-standing position. If the LGBT groups must resort to confusion and chaos to get their way, then they have already shown themselves to be servants of a different king than King Jesus.
