Refuting Wicked Anglicanism
The Anglican/Episcopalian Religion is straight out of the pits of hell. They teach that performing the seven sacraments are absolutely essential to go to heaven, nowhere is this found in the bible so they immediately fall under condemnation.
Rev 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:
Rev 22:19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.
This is the exactly the same damnable heresy which Roman Catholicism teaches!
About the Satanic Episcopal/Anglican Church…
1st, their official website – www.ecusa.anglican.org
Statistics – The Episcopal Church is the American Counterpart of the Church of England or Anglican Church of England. There are 75 million worldwide and 2.3 million in the USA, with the Episcopal Church being formed in America in 1789 in Philadelphia. Membership is on the decline, with a 28% since 1965. Headquarters in America is in New York for the Episcopal Church.
Background and Formation
This church was formed in 1534 when it broke away from the Anglican Church over the matter of a king who wanted to divorce his wife and the pope wouldn’t let him! As church historian A. A. Davis notes – “There does not seem to have been any doctrinal matter involved at all when the Church of England was born.”
Luther objected to the doctrines and the practices of Rome, but the Church of England seems to have come about purely by accident. King Henry VIII of England had become dissatisfied with one of his wives, and incidentally he only had six of them.
Henry VIII “Divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived.” He divorced the first one; he beheaded the second one; the third one was fortunate to die a natural death; the fourth one he divorced; the fifth one he beheaded; but, the sixth one outlived him. He had fallen in love with beautiful Anne Boleyn. He wanted a divorce from Katherine.
The wicked pope claimed the right, as he has until this day, as supreme authority in domestic affairs. When the prime minister chided the king regarding his desires, and the pope would not grant him a divorce, Thomas Cromwell said to him: “You are the King of England . Why don’t you just write a letter to the pope, and in your own way, tell him to go jump in the lake, then organize a church of your own; write yourself a bill of divorcement, go marry the woman of your choice.” He said it was a pretty good idea. That is just about what happened in history. He wanted another wife and he got her. And the world got another church. Wicked doctrine of men!
James 3:11-18 Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh. Who is a wise man and endued with knowledge among you? let him shew out of a good conversation his works with meekness of wisdom. But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work. But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy. And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace of them that make peace.
Beliefs and Practices
(From Mead’s Handbook of Denominations)
“Though not under papal authority, many Catholic practices remain intact in the Church of England, or Episcopal Church.”
The Episcopal Church is facing incredible struggles with liberalism within its ranks. Most no longer believe the Bible to be God’s inerrant word, and many church leaders do not believe in the Deity of Christ.
2 Timothy 3:16 ALL scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
2 Timothy 3:17 That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.
Proverbs 3:7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil.
Proverbs 12:15 The way of a fool is right in his own eyes: but he that hearkeneth unto counsel is wise.
Ecclesiastes 2:14 The wise man’s eyes are in his head; but the fool walketh in darkness: and I myself perceived also that one event happeneth to them all.
Isaiah 5:21 Woe unto them that are wise in their own eyes, and prudent in their own sight!
HOW ARE ANGLICANS/EPISCOPALIANS SAVED? HERESY!
The Episcopal Church believes in a Sacramental Salvation.
The Episcopal Church believes, like Roman Catholicism, in a “sacramental” salvation. It is taught that salvation is achieved by performing the 7 sacraments, beginning with baptism as an infant, then confirmation, Eucharist, penance, holy orders, matrimony, and unction. Unlike most other Protestant Churches which believe the elements of the common service (grapejuice or wine, and bread) are merely symbolic, the Episcopal Church believes in the real presence of Christ in these elements. (Mead’s pg. 134, 11 ed.) Damnable heresies!
Here is the biblical WAY TO THE CROSS (SALVATION).
2Co 7:10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
Infant Baptism – FALSE!
The Anglican Church practices infant baptism, teaching that infants receive the Holy Spirit and are regenerated through baptism. Baptism is by pouring, sprinkling, or immersion. Baptism, as one of the Sacraments and channels of grace is necessary for salvation in the Episcopal Church. “The 39 Articles allow for teaching baptismal regeneration” Religious Bodies of America (pg. 290)
One must reach the age where they can make a conscience decision to repent in Godly sorrow to be saved, then endure ‘til the end. Infant baptism is NOWHERE in the bible! Again, adding to the word! We must REPENT 1st, BELIEVE then get baptised!
1Co 1:17 For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect.
Biblical baptism http://eternalevangelism.com/how-to-baptize/
Lord’s Supper done WRONG!
The ‘Real Prescence’ of Christ is spiritually present in the elements. This is known as ‘Consubstantian’, in contrast to Roman Catholic’s Transubstantiation.
1Co 11:24 And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in REMEMBRANCE of me.
1Co 11:25 After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in REMEMBRANCE of me.
Episcopal Church Government – MANMADE TRADITIONS!
Anglican church government is the Episcopal system – the local church is governed by outside control through a hierarchy of priests and bishops. The highest Anglican bishop is called the Archbishop of Canterbury. The Episcopal Church has Nuns and Monks like Catholicism has (Mead pg. 135)
1Co 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God.
Eph 4:15 But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ:
Eph 5:23 For the husband is the head of the wife, even as Christ is the head of the church: and he is the saviour of the body.
Women Priests – HERESY!
As of 1993, 17 of the 30 independent Anglican communions around the world had approved ordination of women priests. The Episcopal Church in the United States has been ordaining women priests since 1976, and ordained the first female bishop in 1989.
LEADERS OF THE CHURCH ARE MEN!
1 Timothy 2:11 Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.
1 Timothy 2:12 But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
1 Timothy 2:13 For Adam was first formed, then Eve.
1 Timothy 2:14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived was in the transgression.
1Ti 3:1 This is a true saying, If a MAN desire the office of a bishop, he desireth a good work.
1Ti 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the HUSBAND OF ONE WIFE, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;
1Ti 3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;
1Ti 3:4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;
1Ti 3:5 (For if a MAN know not how to rule his own house, how shall HE take care of the church of God?)
1Ti 3:6 Not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil.
1Ti 3:7 Moreover he must have a good report of them which are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil.
1Ti 3:8 Likewise must the deacons be grave, not doubletongued, not given to much wine, not greedy of filthy lucre;
1Ti 3:9 Holding the mystery of the faith in a pure conscience.
Ritualistic worship and MATERIALISM. WICKED!
The Anglican Church (Episcopal Church) has a highly ritualistic form of worship. Some Episcopal churches are “high”, with elaborate ritual and ceremony; others are described as low, with less involved ceremony and more of an evangelistic emphasis. This has been called the church of beauty, and it is an apt description. Its prayer book is eloquent in the literature of religious worship, containing the heart of both New Testament and Old Testament devotions. Members have built wicked stately cathedrals in the U.S.; the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in New York City, the third largest in the world; and the Cathedral of Saints Peter and Paul, the national cathedral in Washington, D.C., sometimes called the American Westminster Abbey.
Stained-glass windows, gleaming altars, vested choirs, and a glorious ritual are not only beautiful, but also give the worshiper a deep sense of the continuity of the Christian spirit and tradition. Next to the stress on episocopacy, its liturgical worship is a distinguishing feature, varying in degree according to high-or low-church inclinations. Its roots are in the Church of England and include the reading, recitation, and intonation by priest, people and choir of the historic general confession, general thanksgiving, collects, psalms, and prayers.
Luke 18:22 Now when Jesus heard these things, he said unto him, Yet lackest thou one thing: sell all that thou hast, and distribute unto the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, follow me.
Php 4:11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.
1Ti 6:8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
JESUS HAD NO PLACE TO LAY HIS HEAD and these blasphemers live in castles!
Mat 8:20 And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head.
Ecumenism – A demonic mix of religions!
For the past two plus decades many Anglican leaders, including the archbishops, have been attempting to reconcile the Church of England with the wicked Roman Catholic Cult. The Episcopal Church is very active in all ecumenical ventures and is a member of both the National Council of Churches and The World Council of Churches.
No. Episcopalians believe that it is the right of a woman to have an abortion.
FILTHY AND WICKED MURDERERS! ABORTION IS MURDER!!!
Jeremiah 1:5 — “Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; I ordained you a prophet to the nations.”
Psalm 139:13-16 — For You formed my inward parts; You covered me in my mother’s womb. I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. My frame was not hidden from You, When I was made in secret, And skillfully wrought in the lowest parts of the earth. Your eyes saw my substance, being yet unformed. And in Your book they all were written, The days fashioned for me, When as yet there were none of them.
Psalm 127:3 — Behold, children are a heritage from the Lord, The fruit of the womb is a reward.
Isaiah 44:24 — Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, And He who formed you from the womb: “I am the Lord, who makes all things, Who stretches out the heavens all alone, Who spreads abroad the earth by Myself;
Luke 1:41 — And it happened, when Elizabeth heard the greeting of Mary, that the babe leaped in her womb; and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. … For indeed, as soon as the voice of your greeting sounded in my ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy.
Exodus 21:22-24 — “If men fight, and hurt a woman with child, so that she gives birth prematurely, yet no harm follows, he shall surely be punished accordingly as the woman’s husband imposes on him; and he shall pay as the judges determine. But if any harm follows, then you shall give life for life, eye for eye, tooth for tooth, hand for hand, foot for foot,
Exodus 20:13 — “You shall not murder.
No. During 2003 a homosexual priest was ordained as Bishop of the Episcopal Church in America. In 1993 a survey revealed that 75% of Episcopalians believed that it is possible for a sexually active homosexuals to be faithful Christians.
Leviticus 18:22-23 — You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination. Nor shall you mate with any animal, to defile yourself with it. Nor shall any woman stand before an animal to mate with it. It is perversion.
Leviticus 20:13 — If a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.
Romans 1:22-32 — Professing to be wise, they became fools, and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things. Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen. For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. Likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due. And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.
Deuteronomy 22:5 — “A woman shall not wear anything that pertains to a man, nor shall a man put on a woman’s garment, for all who do so are an abomination to the Lord your God.
Modernism – WAY OF THE WORLD!
The Way of Life Encyclopedia of the Bible and Christianity says on page 20: In this century liberalism has largely taken over the Anglican denomination. A large percentage of its bishops and pastors are modernists who deny the miracles of the Bible. Former Archbishop of Canterbury Robert Runcie illustrates this sad trend. In an interview with a newspaper the editor picked up in London on Easter 1982, Runcie was asked about the meaning of the cross. He replied, “As to that, I am an agnostic.” Runcie was not certain of the meaning of the cross!
In the same interview he said he felt Buddhism is a proper way to God and that Christians should not say that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation. Anglican bishop David Jenkins openly questions every major teaching of the Bible. Of Christ’s resurrection, this Church of England bishop says, “ The Christian is not bound up with freak biology or corpses getting up and walking around.” Of Chris’s virgin birth, Jenkins says, “As for the virgin birth, they’re the sort of stories that get told after you already believe somebody is very important. You don’t have to believe in the virgin birth…..”
ONE WAY TO HEAVEN!
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Jude 1:4 For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ.
Other Distinguishing Beliefs
Here are beliefs that differ from the Roman Catholic Church (RCC) that it broke away from:
No Celibacy required for priests
No RCC purgatory and limbo, but they do pray for the dead(?)
No confession to a priest
They do have nuns and monks Like the RCC does.
They also believe in Apostolic Succession as the RCC does.
They should believe their 1st “pope”.
Their own Official Anglican Statement of Faith condemns them! According to the 39 Articles of Religion of the Anglican Church of Canada from The Book of Common Prayer, 1959, pg. 698-714…
XXVII. Of Baptism.
Baptism is not only a sign of profession, and mark of difference, whereby Christian men are discerned from others that be not christened, but it is also a sign of Regeneration or new Birth, whereby, as by an instrument, they that receive Baptism rightly are grafted into the Church: the promises of forgiveness of sin, and of our adoption to be the sons of God by the Holy Ghost, are visibly signed and sealed; Faith is confirmed, and Grace increased by virtue of prayer unto God. The Baptism of young Children is in any wise to be retained in the Church, as most agreeable with the institution of Christ.” (The 39 Articles of Religion of the Anglican Church of Canada from The Book of Common Prayer, 1959, pg. 698-714).
Heresy! Damnable heresy! They state above, “…they that receive Baptism rightly are grafted into the Church: the promises of forgiveness of sin…” There is NOT one verse in the entire Bible that requires a person to be baptized to have their sins forgiven. When Jesus said to the man sick of palsy in Mark 2:5, “Son, thy sins be forgiven thee,” He didn’t tell the man to get baptized. Jesus forgave and healed that sick man on the spot, without baptism! How foolish are those unscrupulous Bible teachers who fail to study the Word of God, to understand it’s true meaning. Many people fail to understand Acts 2:38.
No one in the Old Testament was ever required to be baptized; but rather, we read in Genesis 15:6 that Abraham “believed God” and it was counted unto him for righteousness. By obedience to HIS word and repenting in Godly sorrow we are saved. Romans 4:5 plainly states, “But to him that worketh not, but believeth on him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.” What is there not to understand? You’d better forget, and forsake, the 39 articles of the Anglican faith, and rather obey the Word of God! In fact, there is a Scripture which tells us exactly that in Romans 3:4, “God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar…” Men are liars, who tell you that you must be baptized in order to be saved. The entire purpose of 1st John being written, according to 1st John 5:13, was so that we could know that we have eternal life if we endure ‘til the end… “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life…” Carefully notice–NO MENTION is ever made of being baptized. In fact, the words “baptize,” “baptism,” or “baptized” is NOT mentioned in 1st, 2nd, or 3rd John. If baptism were necessary for salvation, surely the Apostle John would have mentioned it.
Mat 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
Mar 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
John 8:39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father. Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham’s children, ye would do the works of Abraham.
If you are in this false religion, repent and do the 1st works!
Rev 2:5 Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.
Anglicanism is Humanism, Not Christianity
The problem with the Church of England is that it no longer promotes Christianity. Humanism has taken its place.
Just to cite a mere handful of examples:
- Homosexuality is condoned instead of being condemned as the Bible does (Lev 18:22; 20:13; Rom 1:27; Eph 5:3). We don’t condemn the homosexual, because he can get help to overcome his deviancy. We condemn the sin, not the sinner. That is the biblical position, but it is not the position which the C of E has adopted and over which the church is being split.
- On the Church of England’s website there is an apology to Charles Darwin for “misunderstanding” him. Apparently, the church now wants to distance itself from fundamentalists who believe the biblical account, and prefers to accept a human theory, unproven and untrue. (Because God’s Word reveals what is true, though many misunderstand what God means in Genesis, and elsewhere in the Bible. MM’s booklet Gems From Genesis explains more about the symbols employed in Genesis.)
- On Islam, the church calls “for an alliance between the two faiths for ‘the common good’.” (Daily Mail, p 10, 16 July 2008.) But the Word of God states categorically that “there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12), other than that of Jesus, Saviour of the world. All the window-dressing of Islam is a sham. Islam lacks divine power, and Spirit, and truth of God. It is merely a human religion, demonically inspired and demonically used to undermine Christianity. (Spelled out in MM’s booklet Islam, the Koran, and God.)
- Ecumenical and inter-faith movements are supported by the C of E, despite God’s clear warnings in the Bible to have nothing to do with religious falsity (Deut 12:30-31). God says, “Whatever I command you, be careful to observe it; you shall not add to it nor take away from it” (Deut 12:32). This principle is repeated in Revelation 22:18-19 under threat of forfeiture of eternal life! The C of E cares less about what God says than making overtures to men, no matter how deceived they are!
The list could go on and on of instances where men in the Church of England who claim to represent God and uphold His Word are doing nothing of the sort!
Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit (Matt 12:33).
The above should be sufficient to show that the Anglican Church, the Church of England tree is bad!
Jesus’ castigation of the religious leaders of His time is as apt in our day:
Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks (Matt 12:34).
The false religion of Druidism
“Most Rev” Dr Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury,
Pro-Homosexual, Pro-Freemason and a Druid…
Dr Rowan Williams becomes an Eisteddfod ‘druid’
The new Archbishop of Canterbury has been inducted as a druid in a centuries-old Celtic ceremony.
Dr Williams became a member of the highest of the three orders of the Gorsedd of Bards – a 1,300-strong circle of Wales’ key cultural contributors – in a ceremony at this year’s National Eisteddfod celebration of Welsh culture in St Davids, Pembrokeshire.
Dr Williams, 52, wore a long white cloak without any head-dress as he arrived at the back of the procession.
Should a Minister of God Be Addressed as ‘Reverend’ (Matthew 23:8-11)? NEVER!!!
Respect or Respect of Persons?
When we look into the Bible, we find the word “reverend” refers only to God Himself, and not once is it applied to a man. The lone instance of the word, found in Psalm 111:9 in the King James version, says: “He [God] sent redemption unto His people: He hath commanded His covenant for ever: holy and reverend is His name.” God alone has a name worthy of reverence. No man, including any minister, has a name worthy of such respect or worship.
The use of religious titles, such as “Reverend,” began when the great apostasy set in at the close of the first century. Ministers put themselves “in the place of” Christ (the meaning of vicar), taking upon themselves the attributes and titles of divinity. God’s true ministers have never done so.
Notice the instruction of Jesus Christ in Matthew 23:8-11: “But you [Christ’s disciples], do not be called ‘Rabbi’; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren. Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ. But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant.” Our Savior commands that those He calls to serve the brethren of the church should not take upon themselves titles that arrogate God and Christ’s own titles and positions, such as “Teacher” and “Father.” Instead, as servants and brothers, ministers should live and work in humility as servants of God.
Rowan Williams apologises to Freemasons and Endorses Freemasonry.
The Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, has been forced to apologise to Britain’s 330,000 Freemasons after he said that their beliefs were incompatible with Christianity and that he had rejected them from senior posts in his diocese.
“The Archbishop apologises for the ‘distress’ he caused and discloses that his own father was a member of the Craft.”
Freemasons, many of whom are active members of the Church of England, reacted angrily to his disclosure that he “had real misgivings about the compatibility of Masonry and Christian profession”.
A spokesman said the Archbishop was worried about the ritual element of Freemasonry, which has been seen as “satanically inspired”. [It is! – MM.]
“He claims that his views were never meant to be public and were distorted by the media.”
He added: “The quoted statements about the ‘satanic’ character of the Masonic ceremonies and other matters did not come from me and do not represent my judgment. Since my late father was a member of the Craft for many years, I have had every opportunity of observing the probity of individual members.”
Dr Williams does not, in his letter, deny that he has misgivings about the role of Freemasons within the Church.
He wrote: “Where anxieties exist, however, they are in relation not to Freemasonry but to Christian ministers subscribing to what could be and often is understood [or misunderstood] as a private system of profession and initiation, involving the taking of oaths of loyalty.”
Archbishop Rowan Williams Strongly Pro-Homosexual
The Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, is strongly pro-homosexual. But he is equally strongly a Church conservative in terms of Church order.
He strongly favors the approval of homosexuality, but equally strongly insists that the homosexualists must wait until the Church at large approves such a lifestyle. That puts him in direct conflict with the realities of Christian faith.
He is going to get shot at from both sides.
He argues that there is more to homosexuality than Romans 1, the passage most frequently cited by evangelicals where St Paul attacks the “unseemly” passions of men with men.
Dr Williams goes on to set out a possible case for active same-sex relationships by arguing that revisionists who support “sexual expression” for homosexuals may, like evangelicals, be trying to be faithful to the Bible.
His arguments, couched in diplomatic theology, make clear his support for committed gay partnerships and his belief that the Church’s traditional ban on homosexual activity should not apply to those in faithful gay relationships.
Dr Williams says that there are plenty of homosexual Christians who do not recognise themselves in Romans 1, where St Paul condemns a society where “God gave them up unto vile affections”, where women turned to lesbian love and “the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burnt in their lust one toward another”.
Archbishop sparks row after holding secret communion for gay clergy
A row erupted yesterday after it emerged the Archbishop of Canterbury kept the details of a communion service for gay clergy so secret that he failed to inform the Bishop of London it was taking place in his diocese.
Dr Rowan Williams reignited the row that is causing divisions within the Anglican Church after agreeing to hold a Eucharist for homosexual, lesbian, bisexual and transgender clergy.
Details of the service, attended by around 100 people, emerged yesterday, with the Archbishop said to have spoken openly about the future for gay people in the church.
…The service was held at the end of last year (2007) in All Hallows by the Tower, a 7th Century church in the City of London, after the original venue, the liberal St Peter’s Church in Belgravia, was “outed” on a hostile website. (End of web page excerpt.)
The Archbishop, Rowan Williams is a nice man. But human respectability hides many demons. Jesus once castigated Peter for his satanic motivation (Matt 16:23). Equally Jesus reproves churchmen today! Not that they listen.
Rowan Williams is a man-pleaser, and tries to be a diplomat. You can’t be a diplomat AND live by the Word of God. The two are incompatible. God says what is right, just and true. Ours is to obey it, not compromise it! Christians are to fear and obey God, not man (Acts 5:29).
The doctrine of the Anglican Church is a demonic mix of Catholicism and Protestant Reformation theology. The Apostles’ Creed and Nicene Creed are authoritative declarations of belief for the Anglican Church and are typically recited in worship services. Interestingly, the church does not require individuals to agree with or accept all the statements of those creeds but encourages its members to join in the process of discovery. The 39 Articles, developed in the reign of Elizabeth I, laid out the Protestant doctrine and practice of the Anglican Church, but were deliberately written to be so vague that they were open to various interpretations by Protestants and Catholics. As in the Catholic Church, the celebration of the Eucharist is central to the worship service, along with the communal offering of prayer and praise through the recitation of the liturgy. In all liturgical churches, there is a danger of allowing the form of religious ceremony (Isaiah 29:13) to replace the personal application of faith (Psalm 51:16-17). This was a key point of contention by the Puritans and others who ultimately left the Anglican Church.
