Episcopal Apostasy

In their General Convention this month the Episcopal Church further separated itself from the faith "once delivered"(Jude 1:3). For one thing, they passed a resolution condemning not only many liturgical texts, but the Bible Itself as "anti-Jewish",referring specifically to the Gospel account of the crucifixion, saying that it has stirred "anti-Jewish prejudice". In addition, this apostate church has also again decided to directly disobey God, this time by prioritizing their missions according to their "own eyes"(Proverbs 3:7, Deuteronomy 12:8).
Instead of putting Evangelism (Mark 16:15, Matthew 28:19) at the top of their agenda, they have chosen "Justice and Peace" as their primary focus. Not only that, but they are basing their focus on the Millennium Development Goals of the godless United Nations, which include eradicating "extreme poverty and hunger", "universal primary education", promoting "gender equality" and "empowerment of women" and "reducing child mortality".
The Episcopal church, which recently saw its first ordination of an openly homesexual bishop, has female priestesses, and endorses abortion (kinda negates the "reducing child mortality" goal, doesn't it...) has not resembled a New Testament church for a very long time. At what point will they admit that they are no longer "Christian"? True Christians will sometimes stay in a church that has strayed in order to affect change. It's time for true Christians to come out of this church (II John 1:10-11).
