Following Jesus while Rejecting the Bible

Below is a link to an article written by Albert Mohler (Pres. at Southern Seminary) concerning the recent PCUSA decision to ordain active homosexuals. While the post groups mainline churches together in a way that is not, in my opinion, fair or accurate (mainline churches are not in agreement on issues pertaining to the role and authority of Scripture); I think it gives some points for reflection. What are your thoughts.

"That is a fundamental error that leaves this denomination now in the implausible position of claiming to affirm the Lordship of Christ while subverting the authority of Scripture. The removal of the constitutional language about marriage and chastity, coupled with the removal of the language about repentance from what Scripture identifies as sin, effectively means that candidates and presbyteries may defy Scripture while claiming to follow Christ.

Clearly, this action could not have happened without this denomination having abandoned any required belief in the full authority, inspiration, and truthfulness of the Bible long ago."
