The Archbishop of Canterbury, the senior religious official in the Anglican church, has been exposed. How so? Well, in recent days he was called to serve as the "mediator" of the deep rift between Anglican bishops who favor ordaining homosexual priests and performing same sex marriages, etc., and those conservative bishops who do not. The Lambeth Conference, the latest in the once-a-decade meetings of Anglican bishops from around the world was supposed to be a place where these "right reverends" could iron out their differences over this matter. Things did not go well. 200 of the Bible-believing bishops did not attend out of protest. The rest were largely pro-gay or indifferent - and even they could not come to a consensus! And so the conference was largely a meeting of, well - bishops who like to meet.
The website ChurchReport.com reports that the Archbishop gave his opinion on the subject years ago. Turns out he was pro-homosexual all along. So much for mediation.
I'm no Anglican, and neither am I picking on the Anglicans, but rather I am saddened to see the fall of churches into apostasy. Ever since the ordination to the bishopric of the homosexual, V. Gene Robinson, the gates of Hell have opened up on the Anglicans. Still, for the senior prelate of their church to affirm what scripture so clearly condemns is a terrible wound that may not be healed. Perhaps it can only be removed. Episcopalians in America are reeling as a result of this attack.
"Williams described how his literal faith in the scripture's prohibitions against homosexuality began to crumble after about 1980 and that 20 years of study and prayer had led him to the "definitive conclusion" that "an active sexual relationship between two people of the same sex might therefore reflect the love of God in a way comparable to marriage ... This is how he tackled the issue in his essay The Body's Grace in 1989: "The absolute condemnation of same-sex relations of intimacy must rely either on an abstract fundamentalist deployment of a number of very ambiguous texts, or on a problematic and non-scriptural theory about natural complementarity, applied narrowly and crudely to physical differentiation without regard to psychological structures."
"If there is a man who lies with a male as those who lie with a woman, both of them have committed a detestable act; they shall surely be put to death. Their bloodguiltness is upon them." AMBIGUITY?! WHAT AMBIGUITY!!??
1 Cor. 6:9-10,
"Or do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, shall inherit the kingdom of God." AMBIGUITY?! WHAT AMBIGUITY!!??
America is Christianity's High Noon. Shall the salt lose its savor? Who will remain standing? I believe that the movement of homosexuality into the cultural mainstream, the deterioration of the family, and the decrease in influence and spiritual quality of Christians in America are the watershed cultural moments leading to the advent of the Antichrist and the one world government.
