Openly Gay Pastor Ordained in California

The Presbytery of the Redwoods has ordained Paul Mowry to become pastor of the Sausalito Presbyterian Church. Mr. Mowry is an openly gay man, living with his partner and their daughter. He will begin leading the church on Sunday, December 18.

According to the Book of Order of the Presbyterian Church (USA), “Ordination to the ordered ministry of teaching elder (pastor) is an act of the whole church carried out by the presbytery.”

    Mr. Mowry was ordained yesterday and installed as a pastor in the Presbyterian Church (USA). Based on the following article, it sounds like he is a warm and talented guy. Unfortunately, he is also a person who has accepted the truth as a lie, and has embraced an area of sin in his life as though it is a blessing from God.

    What is most painful to me about this is the way that Satan will use it to further his cause on earth. The evidence is in this newspaper article, which subtly but persistently suggests that the PC(USA)’s decision to ordain a self-avowed, non-repentant homosexual man as a pastor is evidence that God smiles on a sexual relationship between two men. Because of Mr. Mowry, even more people will be deceived. Some, because of him, will miss the opportunity for repentance, forgiveness, and renewal. Others will use this departure from the clear teaching of Scripture as a springboard to reject other teachings that don’t fit either their personal desires or cultural assumptions.

    God have mercy on us all.
