September 23 2016 By dvirtue 35 Global South Archbishops to meet in Cairo * Canada Elects first Homosexual Bishop * TEC HOB Pressures for more Women and Black bishops * TEC Continues to Decline -- Latest figures

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!

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.

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 Voris

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 Bailey

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.

Legally righteous. When God justifies sinners, he is not declaring bad people to be good, or saying that they are not sinners after all; he is pronouncing them legally righteous, free from any liability to the broken law, because he himself in his Son has borne the penalty of their law-breaking. -- John R.W. Stott

Salvation concerns persons. To call socio-political liberation 'salvation' and to call social activism 'evangelism' - this is to be guilty of a gross theological confusion. It is to mix what Scripture keeps distinct - God the Creator and God the Redeemer, the God of the cosmos and the God of the covenant, the world and the church, common grace and saving grace, justice and justification, the reformation of society and the regeneration of men.

"For all who had hoped that attendance at the January, 2016, Primates' Gathering might restore godly order to the Communion, the results were clearly discouraging. Gafcon is fully committed to guarding the unchanging truth of the Gospel, and restoring the Bible to the heart of the Anglican Communion. In due course, the Gafcon Primates will take counsel and together make a decision about the wisdom of attending future meetings," said the release.

Evangelical Christianity has long been known for its emphasis on theological orthodoxy, a high view of Scripture, and an adherence to sound doctrine. Indeed, one of the defining distinctions between evangelicals and theological liberals over the past few centuries was the fact that evangelicals took the Bible seriously and saw sound doctrine as essential for the Christian life. These were distinguishing features of evangelicalism and unashamedly so. But all that is now being undone.

July 22 2016 By dvirtue ACoC Vote on SS Marriage a Comedy of Errors * GAFCON leader urges Irish Church not to change teaching on Sexuality * TEC San Joaquin Diocese forced to sell Properties * United Methodists roll over on Gay Marriage * Episcopal Divinity School to close

The Anglican Church of Canada would be a sitcom of comedic errors if it wasn't for the fact that the destiny of souls is at stake.

As you all know the Synod of the ACoC voted last week to change its canons to include same-sex marriage, even though the Old Testament, New Testament, Jesus himself and 2,000 years of church history have never embraced the idea and would not call it marriage by any stretch of the imagination.
