SOUTHAVEN, Miss. — Two women who are involved in a lesbian relationship recently contacted the media after receiving a letter from their now-former pastor who advised that their church membership had been revoked as they remained unrepentant.
“Hmmmmm, ok whatever. Going to a better church now. Love my wife and Christ! ‘Nough said,” Mary Catherine Trollinger also wrote to social media on Wednesday in posting a photograph of the letter.
Trollinger told Local Memphis that she met Olivia while attending Gracewood Baptist Church in Southaven, Mississippi and serving as a college director. Both her family and officials at her church sought to advise them that the relationship was inappropriate and unbiblical.
Last year, the two were reportedly advised that they were no longer members in good standing, and so they left. Trollinger also says that her mother told her that same day that she couldn’t continue living in her parents’ home.
Last week, the two received notification that their membership had officially been revoked as a year had passed without repentance and the two had gone on to “marry.”
“At the outset, I kindly but firmly reminded both of you that a homosexual relationship is forbidden in Scripture and against God’s original design,” the letter signed by pastor Barry Baker states. “For a professing Christian to live openly and unremorsefully in sin is degrading to the name of Christ, defiling to his/her church family, and destructive to himself/herself.”

THE GOOD NEWS
Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.
- God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
- The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
- But God...because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-4; 2cor 5:21
All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you're a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.
'that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. '
