Do not give any of your children to be
sacrificed to Molech, for you must not profane
the name of your God. I am the LORD. 22 Do not
lie with a man as one lies with a woman that
is detestable. 23 Do not have sexual
relations with an animal and defile yourself with
it. (Leviticus 1821-23)
9
In the same way the men also abandoned natural
relations with women and were inflamed with lust
for one another. Men committed indecent acts with
other men, and received in themselves the due
penalty for their perversion. (Romans 127)
10
We also know that law is made not for the
righteous but for lawbreakers and rebels, the
ungodly and sinful, the unholy and irreligious
for those who kill their fathers or mothers, for
murderers, 10 for adulterers and perverts, for
slave traders and liars and perjurersand for
whatever else is contrary to the sound doctrine.
(1 Timothy 19-10)
11
Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit
the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived Neither
the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers
nor male prostitutes nor homosexual offenders 10
nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor
slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the
kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you
were. But you were washed, you were sanctified,
you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus
Christ and by the Spirit of our God. (1
Corinthians 69-11)
12
In a similar way, Sodom and Gomorrah and the
surrounding towns gave themselves up to sexual
immorality and perversion. They serve as an
example of those who suffer the punishment of
eternal fire. (Jude 17)

1. the acceptance and promotion within the
provinces of the Anglican Communion of a
different gospel (cf. Galatians 16-8) which is
contrary to the apostolic gospel.
39
I am astonished that you are so quickly
deserting the one who called you by the grace of
Christ and are turning to a different gospel 7
which is really no gospel at all. Evidently some
people are throwing you into confusion and are
trying to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But
even if we or an angel from heaven should preach
a gospel other than the one we preached to you,
let him be eternally condemned!
40
9 As we have already said, so now I say again
If anybody is preaching to you a gospel other
than what you accepted, let him be eternally
condemned! 10 Am I now trying to win the
approval of men, or of God? Or am I trying to
please men? If I were still trying to please men,
I would not be a servant of Christ. (Galatians
61-9)
41
2. the declaration by provincial bodies in the
Global South that they are out of communion with
bishops and churches that promote this false
gospel.
42
Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in
the teaching of Christ does not have God
whoever continues in the teaching has both the
Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and
does not bring this teaching, do not take him
into your house or welcome him. Anyone who
welcomes him shares in his wicked work. (2 John
19-11)
43
3. the manifest failure of the Communion
Instruments to exercise discipline in the face of
overt heterodoxy.
44
Warn a divisive person once, and then warn him a
second time. After that, have nothing to do with
him. 11 You may be sure that such a man is warped
and sinful he is self-condemned. (Titus
310-11)
45
Warn a divisive person once, and then warn him a
second time. After that, have nothing to do with
him. 11 You may be sure that such a man is warped
and sinful he is self-condemned. (Titus
310-11) I urge you, brothers, to watch out for
those who cause divisions and put obstacles in
your way that are contrary to the teaching you
have learned. Keep away from them. 18 For such
people are not serving our Lord Christ, but their
own appetites. By smooth talk and flattery they
deceive the minds of naive people. (Romans
1617-18)

The Doctrine of the Church Canon A5
52
The Doctrine of the Church Canon A5 The
doctrine of the Church is grounded in the Holy
Scriptures and in such teachings of the ancient
Fathers and Councils of the Church as are
agreeable to the said Scriptures. In particular,
such doctrine is to be found in the Thirty-nine
Articles of Religion, the Book of Common Prayer
and the Ordinal.
53
The Doctrine of the Church Article 20
54
The Doctrine of the Church Article 20 The
Church hath power to decree Rites or Ceremonies,
and authority in Controversies of Faith And yet
it is not lawful for the Church to ordain
anything that is contrary to God's Word written,
neither may it so expound one place of Scripture,
that it be repugnant to another. Wherefore,
although the Church be a witness and keeper of
holy Writ, yet, as it ought not to decree
anything against the same, so besides the same
ought it not to enforce any thing to be believed
for necessity of Salvation.

Conclusion Message from Jerusalem

Conclusion Message from Jerusalem
But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to
you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you
will serve, whether the gods your forefathers
served …or the gods … in whose land you are
living. But as for me and my household, we will
serve the LORD. (Joshua 2415)
