Bishop Robinson: Who is His God?

Open homosexual Rev. Gene Robinson of the Episcopal Church USA was a special guest at Planned Parenthood’s annual prayer breakfast:

“We have allowed the Bible to be taken hostage, and it is being wielded by folks who would use it to hit us over the head. We have to take back those Scriptures,” he said. “You know, those stories are our stories. I tell this to lesbian folk all the time: The story of freedom in Exodus is our story. … That’s my story, and they can’t have it.

“This current administration notwithstanding, the world is not black and white,” Bishop Robinson said. “We need to teach people about nuance, about holding things in tension, that this can be true and that can be true, and somewhere between is the right answer. It’s a very adult way of living, you know.

“What an unimaginative God it would be if God only put one meaning in any verse of Scripture,” he said.

In other words, Bishop Robinson believes that when you “nuance” the word of God, adultery and homosexuality aren’t really classified as “sin”.

That’s a different Bible than any of the translations I know about.

  1. The moral relativism just oozes from his words. It’s hard to believe that people can be deceived in such a way.

    somewhere between is the right answer

    “They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served something created instead of the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.” Rom 1:25

  2. We we warned…nobody here but us sheep! Baa!

    “Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.” –Matthew 7:15

    “For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.” –Jude 4

    “…test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world…every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world.” — 1John 4:1,3

  3. Derek, doesn’t surprise me a bit. Over twenty years ago when my wife and I were first married, new Christians and still college students we attended a dinner for young married couples at the pastor’s house. We had only been to the mainline church a couple of times and during the course of the evening I was exuberantly sharing with the pastor of our recent commitments to Christ when he made a face and said, “Here we don’t care what you believe about the Virgin birth, atonement or resurrection” I was shocked and blurted out,”Isn’t that like a geometry teacher not believing in the Pythagorean Theorem?!” The pastor was really perturbed and said, “Perhaps you and your bride would be happier at.. ” then he named another church. We were persona non grata the rest of the night and left shortly thereafter. Fortunately, we did go to that church.

    When sound doctrine is abandoned all sorts of apostasy is inevitable. Something has to fill the vacuum.
