“Please leave us” Australian Anglican bishop tells gays who want to change doctrine
Sydney Anglican Archbishop Glenn Davies has stood against the gay community, telling those that don’t believe in the church’s values to leave.
Eternity News in Australia reports that Archbishop Davies told the church, “My own view is that if people wish to change the doctrine of our Church, they should start a new church or join a church more aligned to their views – but do not ruin the Anglican Church by abandoning the plain teaching of Scripture.
“Please leave us. We have far too much work to do in evangelising Australia to be distracted by the constant pressure to change our doctrine in order to satisfy the lusts and pleasures of the world.”
His comments stand out in a world where many churches are embracing homosexuality. Just recently, Bethel Church was criticized for a social media post that basically encouraged the LGBT community to join the church, but stay as they are.
Dr. Davies was interviewed recently, where he shared his thoughts and feelings openly for the city of Sydney, which he presides over. In the video below, he talks openly about how he weeps for the city of Sydney, like Jesus wept over Jerusalem.
He also noted his surprise to be speaking at public rallies against the extreme changes to the state of New South Wales’s laws surrounding abortion, as well as how seriously flawed the bill is, and how deceptive and politically expedient the manner of it’s presentation has been.
He also speaks of what he calls a “rupture” of the Anglican Church in Australia, “a virus in the national church caused by not teaching properly the word of God.”
