Church of England votes to change the language in reference to God; must be gender neutral

Church of England

Romans 1:28 “And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done.”  2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears

Important Takeaways:

  • Gender-neutral God to be considered by Church of England
  • [Calling for] reference to Our Father, to be scrapped in favor of either gender neutral or female alternatives.
  • Claiming that “a theological misreading of God as exclusively male is a driver of much continuing discrimination and sexism against women”.
  • The news comes amid tensions within the Church of England as the Synod prepares for a historic vote on blessings for same-sex couples later this week.
