The lie that toppled him is that he had confessed to being sexually involved with a former parishioner, and then lied, in 2012, to the Diocese of Lexington Standing Committee in the vetting process for the election of the VII Bishop of Lexington.Read more
After spending nearly two weeks in North Africa and Europe, writing stories and posting other stories that my trusty associate could find, I have come away with some observations that I would like to share with you.
The first is that North Africa is very religious, while Europe is very secular. That is hardly surprising given the state of things in, say, Egypt and France.Read more
"...It's a crisis of declining trust and stability, lost solidarity and permanence...A deep sadness comes when we realize, finally that we're on our own, which is where secular individualism brings us in the end. Many now live without a Father in heaven. Political correctness denies them the patrimony of a workable cultural inheritance. For an increasing number of young people, there's not even a father at home. A nation of orphans, literal or metaphorical, will not long endure.Read more
From the first GAFCON Communique of 2006, to the Canterbury Primates' Communique in 2016, to the latest Cairo Communique, orthodox primates of the Global South ratcheted up the pain and demands for purity of life and holiness on Welby and the whole Anglican Communion. They said no to homosexual behavior and no to homosexual marriage.Read more
We no longer have the luxury of just sitting on the fence. Such 'neutrality' is impossible for the true Christian. "Whoever is not with me is against me" said Jesus. It is time in these dark days to take a stand and make a choice. Who will it be: the Lord Jesus, or the lord self? It cannot be both. It is one or the other. We either make him Lord of all, or he is not Lord at all. Your call. Choose wisely. Time is running out. --- Bill MuehlenbergRead more
When I asked if the Archbishop of Canterbury had been invited, I was told he had declined because he will be in Rome that week with the Pope. A full week! One doubts the pope gives anybody that kind of time with his busy schedule, and what would it hurt if Justin Welby jumped on a plane in Rome and four hours later arrived in Cairo to meet with his people, leaders of the largest, most vibrant provinces and dioceses of the Anglican Communion!Read more
God's unfolding purpose. In 2 Timothy 1:9-10 we seem to detect five stages by which God's saving purpose unfolds. The first is the eternal gift to us in Christ of his grace. The second is the historical appearing of Christ to abolish death by his death and resurrection. The third is the personal call of God to sinners through the preaching of the gospel. The fourth is the moral sanctification of believers by the Holy Spirit.Read more
The entire nation has become a culture of sissies, each person taking offense at every little thing they possibly can -- real or imagined (mostly imagined). On college campuses, so-called safe spaces are set up for the truly sissified, where they can go and cry and be protected from big, nasty, conservative meanies calling the bluff on their idiotic culture of self-weaknesses. --- Michael VorisRead more
Spiritually speaking, I believe that Satan is the ultimate deceptive force and mastermind behind not just the marriage aspect of their [homosexual] agenda, but also behind the entire distortion that somehow managed to turn a dysfunctional human sexual behavior into a "civil rights" cause. --- Dean BaileyRead more
As the Episcopal Church sinks slowly into the sunset, with millions of dollars in Trust Funds, valuable properties worth millions of dollars strategically located in large cities and a healthy Church Pension Fund, the other side of the coin is that its pulpits will lose several thousand priests and close more than 1500 churches over the next six years.Read more
