Resolution on Christian Sexual Ethics
RESOLVED, that we, the 46th General Council of the Reformed Episcopal Church, reaffirm the biblical standard given for the well-being of society:
That sexual intercourse should take place only between a man and a woman who are married to each other.
That fornication, adultery, and homosexual acts are sinful in all circumstances.
That Christian leaders are called to be exemplary in all spheres of morality, including sexual morality, as a condition of being appointed or remaining in office.
That the Church is called upon to show Christ-like compassion to those who have fallen into sexual sin, encouraging them to repent and receive forgiveness, and offering the ministry of healing to all who suffer physically or emotionally as a result of such sin.
Adopted by the 46th General Council of the Reformed Episcopal Church, meeting at St. Mark's Reformed Episcopal Church,
Jenkintown, PA, Wednesday, May 23, 1990
