[Savannah Morning News] 25 Oct 2008--Leaving the Episcopal Church was about more than just leaving a denomination, Gene Prevatt says.
It was also about rejecting "the corruption of the church."
"One does not have to look too far to see the continuing erosion of our freedoms, rising paganism, and an increasing hostility to the Gospel," Prevatt wrote in an April church newsletter to fellow members of Christ Church in Savannah.
"God has called us out, and to those who are moving away, we have said, 'No. We will not go with you.' This is our turning point in history."
For Christ Church in Savannah, that turning point began just over a year ago when leaders voted to sever ties with the Episcopal Church, claiming the denomination has failed to honor the authority of the scriptures.
