Bishop Michael Curry says he could 'feel the presence of slaves' at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's nuptials and called it a 'sign of hope' for the future

St. George's Chapel at Windsor Castle is not exactly a plantation where one might be excused for feeling the "presence of slaves".

But Episcopal Presiding Bishop Michael Curry, the leader of half a million practicing Episcopalians said he did and it was accurately reported in a British newspaper.

The Church has failed Bishop Bell. Public Retraction Sought

Both have the power to heal serious divisions within a Cathedral community - and beyond it.

It is also within their power to commission another investigation into 'mistaken identity'. 'Carol' was clearly abused when she was 8 years old -- and she should be fully believed and supported -- but there is now clear evidence her abuser was not Bishop Bell.

As leftists threaten to burn down the republic forever, where are America's voices of freedom?

The ideas she represents would burn down the republic forever. Rioters, looters and arsonists can be countered by law and order, but the ideas behind the radical left cannot be stopped by riot shields, tear gas and bullet proof vests. The defense America needs today is not a matter for the National Guard or the Seventh Fleet. America requires voices on behalf of foundational ideas of freedom.

The curious case of Kristie Higgs: where is the Church of England?

Despite the two posts not mentioning her employer, and having been published under her maiden name (so quite untraceable to her school), the Headteacher, Matthew Evans, instructed Kristie Higgs' 'friend' to trawl through her Facebook account to find more 'offensive' material. It seems these two posts alone were insufficient evidence of her danger to children, so Kristie Higgs' 'friend' (not) was appointed Chief Offence Archaeologist, and given a mission to discover potential offensive sentences and outrageous words she used a decade ago.

Good and Bad Pluralism in America: A Critical Christian Response to David French

IF the early Christians had believed this, Christianity would have died out quickly. Unity with the Jews would have required shutting up about the Resurrection of Jesus. But as the Holy Spirit made clear through Peter, "We must obey God rather than men!" (For context, see Acts 5:27-29).

WHAT'S WRONG AND HOW TO FIX IT

In his book, Civilization and its Discontents, Sigmund Freud (1856-1939) saw guilt as an indispensable building block for civilization, but he also saw it as civilization's chief discontent. He maintained that without a society that is capable of carrying a significant weight of responsibility, and its inevitable offspring of guilt, civilization will face a towering of responsibility, more violence, less honesty in politics, government, science and education -- a general drift toward decadence.

'God is calling us to repent of our known sins' -- Archbishop Foley Beach

"God is calling his Church to repent so the Holy Spirit can do a work in us even now. It is not just asking God's forgiveness, but repentance and turning away from our sin, it is changing our minds from doing our will to doing God's will."

Beach cried out, "Brothers and sisters, God is calling his church to repent of the known sin in our lives What are your known sins, the ones you know about; it is time to repent? Our nation needs a fired up hot church not a lukewarm or cold church. Our nation needs followers of Jesus not tepid, apathetic and religiously cold people."

Thinking About Augustine

In 391, while in Hippo (where he was well known by reputation) he was ordained a priest. According to some stories, this was almost done against his will. Yet, within five years, he was made Bishop of Hippo. In his episcopate, we once again see a modern man. In addition to his pastoral duties within Hippo, he traveled to church councils in the region of North Africa – forty to fifty times over the course of the 35 years he served as bishop. He made the nine-day journey to Carthage, the metropolitan see, for meetings with other bishops some thirty times.

"We do not know what kind of Church of England will emerge from this time except that it will be different," he said.

"It will be changed by the reality that for the first time all churches have closed -- first time in 800 years. It will be changed because for the first time we have worshipped virtually."

Betrayed Trust, Part Three: Ravi Zacharias Claimed Accusers in Sexting Scandal Were Extortionists, But Evidence Indicates Otherwise

Yet a piece of evidence that seemingly contradicts this narrative is a demand letter the couple's lawyer at the time, Mark Bryant, sent to Zacharias in April 2017.

The letter claimed that Zacharias had "caused irreparable harm to the Thompson family." And it stated that instead of "protracted and public litigation," the Thompsons would sign a release of Zacharias and his ministry for "the amount of $5 million dollars."

The new religion of anti-racism has its own version of original sin. It holds that people with one skin color have a harmful privilege that is possessed even by those who hate racism. They will never be able to be cleansed of that original sin. This new religion of diversity has its own baptismal liturgy, in which you confess all that is associated with your skin color and your complicity in slavery and Jim Crow and continued racism--even if you have always detested slavery and Jim Crow and racism. -- Gerald McDermott

WANTED: PASTORS WITH COURAGE

Pastors must also face what some sociologists have called the new cult of anti-racism.
