This should be under the topic of Your Tithe Dollars At Work. It is under a PDF file of the Layman, May 2010 You have to download it and turn to page three.


Under the radar: Massive relief fund diversion underway
Commentary by Parker T. Williamson, The Layman
Presbyterian Church (USA) and disaster relief officials of other denominations have forged "Action by Churches Together (The ACT Alliance)," a common pot from which to disburse an anticipated $1.5 billion annual flow of parishioner compassion.
Those who read the fine print learn that two ladles may be dipped into that pot. One is publicly touted as "aid and development," while the less advertised dipper is called "advocacy," a.k.a politics.
With their advocacy tool, church bureaucrats can channel disaster windfalls into a wide range of community organizing projects, including "public campaigning and actions," "lobbying and policy engagement." "targeting international institutions." and working for "changes in structures and systems which impoverish and marginalize people." ACT defines its work with broad brush strokes: "For the ACT Alliance, the understanding of which activities are included as part of advocacy is a wide one."
According to a definition that appears in the Ecumenical Advocacy Alliance's 2006 guideline, advocacy includes "action on political, economic, cultural and social issues by churches and their members, church-related agencies and other organizations which aims to influence policies and practices of those in position of power and influence in order to bring about a more just peaceful and sustainable world."
The fund will be facilitated by a select, 18-member staff group at the World Council of Churches (WCC) headquarters called "The Secretariat."
The ACT Alliance is authorized "to increase its effectiveness" by using contributions from Christians to fund non-Christian "civil society groupings," that in some places "will be a major driver in deterining the organization's advocacy agenda and the position taken."

In other words it is time to get out of the Presbyterian Church USA. It is another example of a government being taken over by socialists to pervert the agenda of all these well meaning people to destroy the values of the people using their own money against them. Many congregations have worked their way out from under the PCUSA, a costly undertaking, but it is way past time their true agenda was exposed

I'm sorry but whenever a thread has "GAY AGENDA" in the title, there shouldn't be any other reaction but to laugh.

I think it needs to be stated that this is under the guidelines of the PCUSA NOT the PCA.

Years ago the Presbyterian church split. Here is a little more information
to help explain the difference in the two.




The Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) is a theologically conservative evangelical Protestant Christian denomination, the second largest Presbyterian church body in the United States after the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.).

The PCA professes a strong commitment to evangelism, missionary work, and Christian education. The church declares its goal to be "faithful to the Scriptures, true to the Reformed faith, and obedient to the Great Commission."




The early part of the twentieth century saw continued growth in both major sections of the church.


It also saw the growth of Fundamentalist Christianity (a movement of those who believed in the literal interpretation of the Bible as the fundamental source of the religion) as distinguished from Modernist Christianity (a movement holding the belief that Christianity needed to be re-interpreted in light of modern scientific theories such as evolution or the rise of degraded social conditions brought on by industrialization and urbanization).


So you have two different sectors of the Presbyterian Church.

PCA is the reformed Presbyterian church very conservative.

PCA(USA) is the liberal side of the Presbyterian church.

I am not surprised to hear this, coming from the PCAUSA.

Just wanted to make this known, as this is always a controversial debate.

Thanks'
Pax

Having been born and raised Presbyterian, it is more than just a split. The church was infiltrated by a virus taking advantage of it's wishy washy pro liberal tendencies and it's tendency to attribute miracles to natural happenings and it's scholarly research to prove that the bible never happened. The infiltration was done by the gays to capture the financial resources of the church to benefit the gay agenda. The split came when they tried to promote gay marriage and sexually active homosexual priests. Any congregation crying foul had to cough up possiblly millions of dollars to keep their church. After all we have to be tolerant of the poor gays, can't let them think we disapprove their lifestyles. I didn't stay in the Presbyterian church because my preacher refused to perform our marriage, since my husband to be wasn't Christian. This is not intolerance. Refusing to marry gays is intolerance.
But seriously, the remaining Presbyterians who are not taken in by the "pitty the gays" nonsense should get out of the Presbyterian church now. The church is corrupt and up to no good. So what if you lose your property and money. You've already lost it. You don't want to be on the same side as this corruption.

This is the best reason for the seperation of church and state. I have always been in the firm belief that the church's role in society is to act as a moral compas, and spiritual advisor. When you involve in politics, you now have a tendency for those who preach from the pulpit to get involved with political matters and direct on society on a whole what they believe is correct, even if the society is not ready for such changes. Society much change from within, exculding all external influences for each person to determine what is correct and what is not.

Sorry, I don't agree. The separation of church and state is just a tool on the part of liberals to go after the Christians. The whole reason for separation of church and state is to keep the government from restricting the churches. But the government is looking for excuses to go after the churches since the shadow government are really satan worshipers, look at Bohemian Grove.
You won't see them bothering the PCUSA. They are already on board. Look at their worship of the goddess Sophia. Even in my parents church, I was there with my mother, they had to give tribute to the goddess Sophia. I couldn't believe it. It is so far gone. The whole purpose seems to be confusion. Maybe it is a plan God has for waking people up to how far off they are. But my parents stuck with them. Supporting abortion, look at all the poor girls who are condemed for getting pregnant. What girls, their mothers stay home and look after the children. Nobody gets thrown out any more. Pregnancy would wreck their lives. My foot. The brats.
It is amazing that the Layman has stuck with them, as a thorn in their side. It's time to give up on them.
It is amazing that the real Presbyterians have allowed themselves to be defrauded of so much money by these jerks.
