Many have been dismayed by the proclamations of the Church of England about sex in recent weeks. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/church-of-england-sex-is-for-married-straight-couples-only-vl60czphl
It was a member here on this forum who helped me to grapple with my faith and belief and finally junk the anthropomorphised analogue of the Creator with the simple statement "God is Love".
There are many who grow up without Love and don't understand it. What is it? Working Together in the widest, deepest, most holistic sense with everyone, every living being, everything, the planet, the universe, circumstances . . . Because Working Together is truly the Creator . . .
- all powerful
responsible for creating everything . . .
Three quarks work together to make a proton. Protons and electrons work to make atoms . . . right the way up to biological structures . . . and our organs (forgive the pun) working together to give us the Divine (what is Divine? Working Together) gift of the breath of life. And the breath of life works together as the sound that gives the name which must never be said . . . . Aahay or Aayah . . . . and the understanding of which gives to the heart of the religions in worship of Yahweh and A**ah (ll as in Mallorca, Maiyorca) - the saying of which destroys the sound that they represent and its significance. Thus the second line of the Lord's Prayer.
So what has the Church got to do with pronouncements on sex? Sex is just one way of people working together. Abuse of sex comes through not working together. How people want to enjoy sex in the form of working together not a matter on which religions should pronounce as long as it leads to . . . Working Together.
The recent pronouncement by the Church of England is a prohibition against different ways of different people working together and contrary to "Working Together"
The law of the universe is that stuff that doesn't work together isn't here . . . it either never existed or ceases to exist pretty fast.
If the human race doesn't work together with its planet, then the human race will cease to exist.
Where would you be if your father's sperm had not worked together with your mother's egg.
Where would you be if your organs stopped working together?
Where would you be if your genes didn't work together?
Decisions have to work together to produce an event. If the decisions don't work together, then no event results. So working together is the creator in more than the material world, it is the creator in the time domain too, the domain of process, and leads to the Sea of Circumstances upon which I've written before.
Religions that don't acknowledge Love, Working Together, as the source of creation will cease to exist and those religions which don't work together with other religions are seen for what they are, empty of Working Together.
Unfortunately the Church Of England has fallen to base animal instinct of tribalism, and together with the organs in its churches, will cease to exist.
