[i]It is evolutions like this one, which while supremely positive, give pause as to the "Godliness" of church doctrine. Essentially, because this practice has been unpopular, the church is now revising it. Is the impetus for this evolution coming from God? The article didn't say. If not, then how is the church justified in amending God's word in this way - however popular or logical? Shouldn't there be a tablet or burning bush or something to spark this change? Perhaps empty pews is the sign!
Which of God's words are they amending?
