Church of England Official Resign For Church’s Movement Towards Heresy

A leading Church of England governing body has resigned, citing ‘heresy’ over the Church’s progressive stance on same-sex relationships.

Lorna Ashworth, a staunch evangelical, cited a ‘revisionist agenda’ and ‘heretical teaching’ as she announced her resignation over the Church’s increasingly relaxed approach to gay couples.

She has said the CofE is entertaining a ‘revisionist agenda’ and ‘heretical teaching,” according to Christian Today.



“I am no longer willing to sit around the table, pretending that we, as a governing body of the Church of England, are having legitimate conversations about mission. I refuse to be mistaken as one participating in the fanciful notion of “good disagreement”,” she said in her resignation letter.



She told Christian Today there were ‘completely different agendas’ at work within the Church. She said her resignation was not just about sexuality but about a fundamental understanding of the gospel.
