Yesterday a good friend asked me how I was doing. She was more than sincere. She truly wanted to know what was going on in my little head. I told her I was struggling with being a member of PCUSA. She understood.
When I became a member of the Presbyterian Church in another town we were PCUS, you know, the southern branch. Then we came under the unification umbrella headquartered in Louisville. I still identified myself as a Bible believing follower of Jesus Christ. I still am. However, it seems to me the PCUSA has left me behind as it has become an institution that ordains practicing homosexuals, marries same sex couples, is anti-Israel / pro-Palestinian, pro choice, and a litany of other all inclusive enlightened ideas. My struggle includes the fact that I believe the Bible is the infallible inerrant word of God. God means what He says. I find myself leaning toward PCA or the more moderate EPC, or EOC.
I love my local church, First Presbyterian, Madisonville. I have issues with the Western Kentucky Presbytery and the General Assembly. I say these things to preface this request: please pray with and for me.
Loving you in the Name of Christ Jesus,
