Yes, but I would say that it is possible for God to change His mind. That is why I was wondering if any Episcopalian leaders had received any divine revelations in regards to this change. If not, then I would argue that this change is not divinely sanctioned, and would argue that this shouldn't be done without His express permission.Side note: God has already told us His preferred pronouns. Is the Episcopal Church misgendering Him? I thought that was a no-no for leftists...
I wonder what it would actually take, at this point.But then I would probably be kicked out of the Episcopal church.
I don't know enough about the Episcopal Church to know the answer, but I do know they've had openly gay clergy for a while now. I don't know if that flexibility is only in matters of sex but it would seem weird to me for that to be the one standout.This seems bizarre to me. Sure, religious practices evolve over time but this is silly.
I thought episcopalians were a bit more strict about things compared to others, this news aside, am I wrong?
Genesis does indicate that man was made in His image. So we have that to go on, at the very least - we have a basic idea of what God looks like.hmmm the only mention of a physical body is Jesus's presence on Earth. As far as I know God/Heavenly father is spiritual/unknown
Agreed. I think the Bible is filled with beautiful poetry and allegory that helps us understand more deeply than if we took everything as directly literal (which is not to say there aren't literal aspects, but anyway...). As such, I see the "Made in His Image" being far more about our souls and "Beings" than our physical forms. After all, God exists outside of the physical (as do we) so it seems unlikely Made in His Image is all about our hands having 10 fingers and feet 10 toes so much as it is about our essence. Our core. We are made to align wonderfully with Him.True but God/Jesus have abilities that we don't (transform into different forms and passing through walls without issue). I took it as our spirit is fashioned like His so eventually we'll have some of those eternal properties as well.
