Church Of England Won’t Give Definition Of A Woman Citing Complexities Of Gender Identity

The Church of England has said that there is “no official definition” of a woman. While senior bishops formerly agreed that such basic definitions were not up for debate, the church’s Bishop in Europe has released an update suggesting that its treatment of the terminology should be reevaluated. “There is no official definition, which reflects the fact that until fairly recently definitions of this kind were thought to be self-evident, as reflected in the marriage liturgy,” Bishop Robert Innes said in a statement. He added that there are new “complexities associated with gender identity” making it necessary to give “additional care” to the gender identity issue. Read more about the church’s position here.

July 14th – 1 Timothy 4:7-8

1 Timothy 4:7-8

Too many times I have been guilty of not practicing due diligence when it comes to my relationship with God. I’ve been lax in giving it the time and nurturing it deserves. Because honestly, discipline is not my strong suit. Yet Paul advises us to diligently practice self control for the goal of walking in righteousness. Why? Because godliness transforms our lives into ones God intends for us to have. Lives of love, peace, joy, and fulfillment. “For it is this we labor and strive, because we fixed our hope on the living God, who is the Savior of all men, especially of believers.” (1 Tim. 4:10) Practicing godliness deepens our relationship with the Lord, and provides a wonderful testimony to the lost. Because what better attraction could there be then seeing a follower of Jesus leading a disciplined, godly life to its fullest.
