The retired Bishop of Birkenhead and National Director of the Church of England Evangelical Council, the Rt Revd Keith Sinclair has spoken clearly as to the position of the organisation regarding LGBT issues. It has come under fire for having engaged in the recently revealed secret “St Hugh’s Conversations” with those promulgating purely unscriptural positions in regard to sexuality within the Church
Bishop Sinclair said,
“The voice we listen to above all other voices is God’s voice and that voice is heard in “God’s word written, in Holy Scripture”… God has spoken through his Word and his voice is the decisive voice to be heard in the Church of England.”
Sinclair’s statement is in clear agreement with the Scripture, Creeds, Canons, Ordinal, Book of Homilies, and the Thirty-nine Articles of Religion of the Church of England.
His statement was released during the meeting of the House of Bishops. It stands in stark contrast to the recent announcement from the Bishop of Oxford and other bishops advocating the Church adopt the LGBT arguments that defy the standards of the Bible and Church of England.
