I wouldn't normally go so low as to attack someone over their beliefs, but when it comes to Bishop Katherine "Jezebel" Schori, the name Jezebel seems to be more fitting that Jefferts. The US Episcopal Church officially proclaimed Katherine Jefferts Schori, Bishop of the denomination in Washington DC today. Jefferts - and the US Episcopal church in general, has courted controversy over the last year for a number of different reasons. In June of this year, she caused a storm when she referred to Jesus Christ as feminine, stating "Our mother Jesus gives new birth to a new creation and we are his children". Jefferts also believes that God created homosexuality, and that contrary to Scripture, homosexuality is not a sin. The US Episcopal church caused a ruckus in that same month, when they affirmed that the name of Jesus Christ was not the only name whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12). This prompted true believers in the denomination to proclaim that the US Episcopal church as we know it is now dead. And this dead church's leader seems to share the belief that Jesus Christ is not the only way to God... 

Quote: "The woman who'll be installed this weekend as the first female presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church doesn't consider Jesus Christ the only way to God. In an Associated Press interview, Bishop Katharine Jefferts-Schori said, "If we insist that we know the one way to God, we've put God in a very small box."

Oh dear. I guess Jesus didn't really mean it when He said those words in John 14:6...

John 14:6 
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Where do I start with this one? Peter stated in his epistle that in the last days, apostasy would grow so bad that there would come a time when church leaders would even go so far as to deny the Lord Jesus (2nd Peter 2:1). That is happening today. In the book of Revelation, there are several figurative women mentioned. One is by the name of "Jezebel", and another is the "Mother of Harlots". Both represent false religious systems. 

Revelation 2:20-22 
Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.

The name Jezebel has become so hated due to what the real Jezebel did, that the name is now used as a derogatory term for a devious woman. In the Old Testament, Jezebel killed the true prophets of God, and caused Israel to worship the false god Baal. Likewise today, there are "Jezebels" that are seducing God's people, and leading thousands astray. What's worse is that the church today seems to suffer it, instead of putting the situation right. May God help us to stand firm on His Word, despite the apostasy around us.

Revelation 3:4 
Thou hast a few names even in Sardis which have not defiled their garments; and they shall walk with me in white: for they are worthy.
