(Worthy News) - The Episcopal Church is one step closer to revising their official Book of Common Prayer to include more "inclusive and expansive language" for both God and humanity.

At the mainline denomination's 79th General Convention in Austin, Texas, the House of Deputies voted to adopt a resolution that approved beginning a revision process to the 1979 Book of Common Prayer that will likely remove masculine language for God.

Known as Resolution A068, the measure passed on Saturday with clergy voting 63 yes, 30 no, and 17 divided while laity voted 69 yes, 26 no, 15 divided. [ Source: Christian Post (Read More...) ]

  1. God is God. No matter how they change the wording, God will still be God. But woe to those that lead men astray, misrepresenting the full deity of God for a lesser god.

  2. "The Episcopal Church" is a good name for Sharks in the Tank.

    There is very little that has to do with the following of Christ (Messiah) left in any of "the churches."
