Presbyterian Church USA Seeks To Kill Reconquista Movement

Redeemed Zoomer is a prominent Christian YouTuber with 355K subs who has produced a lot of content explaining the basics of Christian theology in a compelling format for YouTube. On top of this, he is among the most prominent figures in the Reconquista Movement for apostate denominations. He is currently an active layman in the fight inside the Presbyterian Church USA, the liberal Presbyterian denomination that rejects inerrancy, affirms feminism, and supports homosexuality.

His efforts have evidently not gone unnoticed as the PCUSA is poised to vote on an amendment that could quash any hope for a Reconquista.

Their proposed amendment to their Book of Order is as follows with changes in brackets and italics:

1. Shall F-1.0403 be amended as follows:

“The unity of believers in Christ is reflected in the rich diversity of the Church’s membership. In Christ, by the power of the Spirit, God unites persons through baptism, regardless of race, ethnicity, age, sex, [gender identity, sexual orientation,disability, geography, or theological conviction. There is therefore no place in the life of the Church for discrimination against any person. The Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) shall guarantee full participation and representation in its worship, governance, and emerging life to all persons or groups within its membership. No member shall be denied participation or representation for any reason other than those stated in this Constitution.”

 

2. Shall G-2.0104b be amended as follows:

“b. Standards for ordained service reflect the church’s desire to submit joyfully to the Lordship of Jesus Christ in all aspects of life (F-1.02). The council responsible for ordination and/or installation (G-2.0402; G-2.0607; G-3.0306) shall examine each candidate’s calling, gifts, preparation, and suitability for the responsibilities of ordered ministry. The examination shall include, but not be limited to, a determination of the candidate’s ability and commitment to fulfill all requirements as expressed in the constitutional questions for ordination and installation (W-4.0404) [and in the principles of participation, representation, and non-discrimination found in F-1.0403]. Councils shall be guided by Scripture and the confessions in applying standards to individual candidates.”

The first of the amendments in the overture is to prevent homosexuals and transvestites from being denied communion or participation. The second requires that teaching and ruling elders affirm homosexuality and transgenderism.

The stated rationale refers to homosexuals and transvestites as oppressed peoples:

We follow this encouragement by urging that gender identity and sexual orientation be established as protected classes against which we must not discriminate. As the PC(USA) continues to celebrate the gifts of our LGBTQIA+ siblings, we must amend our Book of Order to prevent discrimination against those same siblings.

We further feel that justice will be served and the children of God will be supported by this amendment. Studies show that LGBTQIA+ youth who have religious parents that share negative views on being LGBTQIA+ have higher rates of suicide attempts.[1] We believe that the Church is being called to affirm and support this at-risk population as children, youth, and adults.

We pray that the PC(USA) will fully affirm our LGBTQIA+ siblings by adding language that protects these historically oppressed people.

If passed this overture would cement sodomy into the PCUSA on an institutional level that is insurmountable. Redeemed Zoomer has called for a mobilization of “trad” PCUSA members.
