February 28 2020 By virtueonline Iranians are Losing Their Islamic Religion

Estimates vary about Christianity's Iranian revival, with some suggesting in 2019 that "70 percent of Iran's people have rejected Islam." Like others, Open Doors, an aid organization for Christians persecuted worldwide, cited at least 500,000 Iranian Christians that same year, compared to 500 known evangelical Christians in 1979, while some sources claimed one million covert believers.

I have written on both of these vital ethical issues hundreds of times now -- in books and in articles. And I have demonstrated how countless believers and churches have already crashed and burned as they promote these things. So many have been utterly snookered by the enemy into believing these things are just peachy, and that a follower of Jesus can somehow be involved in both. They are of course fully deceived, and they are sadly dragging so many others down with them.

Sharing Holy Communion with our church family in Hartford that morning was deeply moving. Bruised and cold hands, shaped by the harshness of the elements, reached out for the sacrament. Prayer pervaded every moment of their time together. At one point in the service church members were encouraged to huddle up in groups of three, laying hands upon each other and praying with power and compassion.

He ultimately decided to publish a blog post on his church's website, nearly a week before voters flocked to the polls on Super Tuesday, about the surging Republican candidate. The post was uncharacteristically titled: "This Isn't Funny Anymore: Why I'm Voting Against Donald Trump."

February 17 2020 By virtueonline CATHOLIC MP BACKS FREE SPEECH AS ANGLICAN BISHOPS GAG FRANKLIN GRAHAM

Speaking in Parliament on Thursday, Rees-Mogg warned that the service providers running the seven tour venues were in danger of discriminating against Graham "unlawfully on grounds of religion and belief."

"The U.K. has robust protections for freedom of speech and freedom of religion, and the price of living in a free, plural society is tolerating views and beliefs that we disagree with or are even offended by," Rees-Mogg told members of Parliament.

February 13 2020 By virtueonline POPE VETOES WOMEN CLERGY, AFFIRMS CHRIST AS 'SOLE REDEEMER'

Titled Querida Amazonía, the exhortation seemed to signal a paradigm shift in the pontificate of Francis, as it resoundingly affirmed the evangelization of the Amazonian peoples in the words of the apostle Paul to the Corinthians: "We are not ashamed of Jesus Christ" and "Woe to me if I do not preach the gospel!"

February 12 2020 By virtueonline Is Critical Race Theory Compatible with Christian Faith?

Swain is black. She faced her share of racism from whites. She had to overcome failed marriages, bouts of depression, and ostracism. Recently she wrote about how she succeeded against such overwhelming odds. "I was convinced that I was born into a land of opportunity. Despite being born black and poor, I learned that one's attitude toward life was far more important than your race or social class in determining what you will accomplish" (Race and Covenant, Acton Books, 2020, chapter 10).

But from our perspective, the most important issue here is the language used by the incoming Archbishop of York concerning why the church must change its position on human sexuality and join the revolution. He said this, "Same sex relationships and same sex marriage are not only considered normal," he means in the society, "but positively taught and encouraged in many homes and schools as a social good.

February 05 2020 By virtueonline Balancing institution and mission: Lessons from change in the Cuban church

The story of a church caught amidst worldly change is one familiar to Cuban Episcopalians. While the Canadian and Cuban contexts have many differences, Canadian Anglicans may have some interest in the experience of the Cuban church--an experience with which some will be very familiar.

This year's joint synods are the sequel to the 2017 joint synods wherein the Anglican Catholic Church (ACC), Anglican Province of America (APA), Anglican Church in America (ACA), and the Diocese of the Holy Cross (DOHC) entered into full communion with one another as an important step toward an organic union. As someone who has spent his entire life in the Continuum, it is hard to describe to outsiders how incredible it was to see this giant leap take place.
