Is it morally wrong for a church to change their policy?

Let's say a church believes premarital sex is OK after a 100 years they change their policy and say it is wrong.

Is a church obligated to review and change decisions that seem to go against a moral guide?

  • I think you should stop listening to what the church says and use your own moral code by doing what feels right to you. You have a natural sense of right and wrong. You don't need worry about what the church says.

  • Anon is right. We can't always follow the others even if it's a church. Sometimes we have to make our own personal choices and follow them

  • I would need to know a specific thing they are changing in order to give a good answer. People have different views on different issues and those views can vary widely.

    Ex. The Catholic Church doesn't believe in birth control. I would be happy to see them change this view..even though I believe the Lord wants us to be fruitful and multiply..I also believe he wants us to be able to feed those children. Preventing a pregnancy is not the same thing as aborting one imo.
    The Catholic Church also teaches homosexuality is wrong. I would be unhappy if they changed their minds on this.

    So, it depends on the issue at hand.

  • If it's not morally ok, there's a whole lot of people who should've been stoned to death by now.

    They don't - they changed their policy. So it better be a morally ok thing to do, because if it's not, all those people they let off the hook should, morally, have been stoned by now.

    My answer is if it's wrong then all the churches are full of hypocrites. In other words, isn't it a little late to be asking the question when they've changed policy so many times it's resulted in over 38,000 different denominations, each based on a policy change?
