I am disappointed and deeply concerned that we fail to determine life values and principles in light of scriptural doctrine. Why is there reference to the Social Action Handbook? Are we now allowing our culture to be the filter through which we determine right or wrong, rather than the Bible?
In the Presbyterian Book of Forms, section 444.1 clearly states: "the scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, being the word of God, are the only infallible rule of faith and manners." Without absolutes from scriptures, we have no moral compass. May we not be like Lot and his family (Genesis 19), accepting the lifestyle, attitudes, values and principles of the world we live in.
May God help us all to live victoriously, to bring honour and glory to His Holy Name.
