Church of Scotland round-up

Here are a number of links to articles and audio on the Church of Scotland debates of the last days. The primary debate was, of course, put off again for 2 years.

This interview (11 minutes) is particularly revealing. Questions such as “Is the bible clear?” are met with, “Of course not…”

They say this does not set a precedent, but that is silly really. How can it not?

The issue of homosexuality aside, this guy has divorced his wife and is living with someone he is not married to (or entered into a civil partnership with). I wonder how they would respond to a minister who left his wife to to live with another women who is not his wife and he is not married to?

John Ross’s blog.

Willie Philips response to his congregation in Glasgow. They will no longer give money to the Church of Scotland. A Fellowship of Confessing Churches has been set up in the Church of Scotland.

David Meredith’s blog.

David Robertson interview.

It will be interesting to see what the days ahead hold. Let us pray for our brothers and sisters in the difficult situation.

    this is probably not the place to post this, but I couldn’t find your email.

    I was thinking about your sermon on Sunday night, particularly the idea of Jesus as the gardner in the gospel of John

    One of my favourite preachers is Jacob Prasch. He has an excellent sermon looking at the typology of jesus in the Garden:

    Chris,
    Thanks for the links. It was helpful to see the garden theme traced more extensively through scripture. Lots more to be explored.
    Michael
