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.

Anglican Church in North America Solidifies Footing in Mexico

The bishop brings a wealth of knowledge to the job. Bishop Zimmerman spent fifteen years serving in Somerset, PA, first as rector of St. Francis in the Fields Episcopal Church, and then most recently as rector of Somerset Anglican Fellowship, where he started a Spanish speaking congregation. In 2014, he and his wife Cindy, moved to Albuquerque, NM to begin their new ministry. It was a jumping off point for the huge sprawling nation of Mexico that lay at his feet.

The Church, Apostasy and Homosexuality

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.

Scottish churches demand Council apology over 'illegal and discriminatory' Franklin Graham booking cancellation

The cancellation was one of eight arenas who told Graham that he was no longer welcome.

The evangelist subsequently launched legal action to get the decision overturned.

In a letter published in the Scottish Herald, leaders from mainly Pentecostal and independent churches, said the cancellation was an attack on all believers who share traditional biblical beliefs about sin.

Visiting One of the Largest & Most Vibrant ACNA Churches in the Anglican Diocese in New England

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. Prayers of this nature broke out all of the time; in the coffee line, standing together with soup or in the line for clean clothing.

ACNA priest behind viral anti-Trump blog warns president may be 'God's judgement on America'

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."

Fly the White Flag

"Through the generousity of a number of chaps I know who have access to various trusts, I was able to secure the money to supply Renew with a number of white flags," Bishop Rod explains, "But not only that, when I mentioned my plan to Justin over our morning kippers, he managed to secure an extra £2k to make sure that the flags were durable enough to last through the coming 12 months. I consider this to be proof that Evangelicals are still welcome in the Church of England, why else would we be plied with money?"

Western Massachusetts priest pleads guilty to child pornography possession; diocese reveals abuse allegation

At the time, Lisby was working as a kindergarten teacher in a public school in Holyoke, having been suspended in 2018 from his position as rector of All Saints Church in Worcester "for an inappropriate relationship with an adult that did not involve sexual contact," the Rt. Rev. Douglas Fisher wrote in a letter to the diocese shortly after Lisby's arrest. Fisher added in that letter that the diocese had "no reason to believe that children in our diocese have been victimized in this situation."

UGANDA: Police detain protesting Christians in Kumi Diocese

On February 5, the Church of Uganda leadership revoked his election on grounds that the Bishop-elect was not old enough to become a bishop.

In his letter to Kumi Diocesan Chancellor, Mr Emmanuel Ilukor, the Archbishop of the Church of Uganda, His Grace Stanley Ntagali, stated that the House of Bishops had reviewed Rev Okunya's National Identity Card, NIRA records, passport, academic records from Uganda Christian University and those submitted by the diocese, during the vetting process and established that he did not qualify for the job.

GAFCON Primate says no partnership with false teachers in the Anglican Communion

As the youngest born person ever to hold the two positions, the American born evangelical leader said GAFCON could not become partners with them, a reference to the Lambeth Conference, The Episcopal Church and the Anglican Church of Canada. Archbishop Justin Welby has not invited Archbishop Beach to the Lambeth Conference.

The Transgender Movement Is a Living Nightmare

The media routinely speak of such things as "hormone therapy" and "gender confirmation surgery" as if these things are gentle, benign, and uncontroversial therapeutic measures that always bring peace and healing. But, for many of the rapidly growing number of so-called "detransitioners," the experience of submitting themselves to the gender "experts" has felt like being a character in a slasher flick.

Martin Bashir: I confronted 'dictatorial' vicar Jonathan Fletcher over exploitation of elderly parishioner - and he turned on me

The breadth and seriousness of the accusations are in marked contrast to the near universal admiration for his ministry and character.

In a book of Fletcher's parish newsletters, entitled 'Dear Friends' and published to coincide with his retirement as the vicar of Emmanuel Church Wimbledon, there are glowing tributes and not a hint of the abuse that victims say he meted out over the course of his career.

TRURO, VA: Prominent Fairfax church seeks to explain rector's sudden departure

The staff say those tensions arose from causes that have little to do with Baucum's theology. His behavior in the workplace, church leaders wrote in a summary of an investigative report, was "abusive," "intimidating," "coarse," "vulgar" and "unpredictable."

Leaders of the congregation of more than 1,200 members held a meeting this week to try to explain the results of the investigation into Baucum's conduct. They read the summary and took questions from church members, but did not make the investigator's report public.

Internal report finds that L'Arche founder Jean Vanier engaged in decades of sexual misconduct

According to the release, the inquiry "has found the allegations to be credible."

According to L'Arche USA, an investigation "reveals that Jean Vanier himself has been accused of manipulative sexual relationships and emotional abuse between 1970 and 2005."

"Independently from one another, the witnesses describe similar occurrences, which had a long-lasting and negative impact on their personal lives and subsequent relationships."

America's Cultural Divide Reflected in the Churches * Houston Episcopal Priest Rolls over on homosexual Marriage * TEC will cease to Exist in 30 years * New APCK Archbishop * Bishop Fairfield Dies * NZ Dean says Sex outside of Marriage is Okay * More...

Christians may be free to "retire" from their occupation, but as disciples of Christ we aren't ever free to retire from serving God and others. If we're fortunate enough to be freed from the demands of working for a living, that opens a door of opportunity to do more work for the kingdom using the wisdom, experience, talents, and resources the Holy Spirit has given us through a lifetime of discipleship. -- Chris Cagle

Without a vibrant and vital Christianity, America is doomed, and without America, the West is doomed. --- Rabbi Daniel Lapin

Giving Birth as an Episcopalian is "the worst thing you can do", says Presiding Bishop

CURRY: I agree with MacCormack that we must actively embrace issues like human extinction, vegan abolition, atheist occultism, death studies, a refusal of identity politics, deep ecology, and the apocalypse as an optimistic beginning. As you know, we in TEC embrace sodomy and homosexual marriage where the chances of you getting pregnant is probably one in a trillion, but you never know of course. But I think we are licking the population boom problem advocating lots of boink boink, but with nothing to show for it. It is definitely a step in the right direction.

AUCKLAND ANGLICAN DEAN SAYS NZ ANGLICANS CAN HAVE SEX OUTSIDE OF MARRIAGE

In 2018, the general synod of the Anglican Church of Aotearoa New Zealand and Polynesia voted to allow clergy to bless same-sex civil relationships. It was a progressive step forward, though perhaps a half step. In America, the bishops voted in 2015 to allow priests to marry same-sex couples, shortly after same-sex marriage was legalized. In New Zealand, where same-sex marriage has been legal since 2013, "we can bless them but we still can't marry them."

Given the lack of a unified front, it was down to individual clergy to determine their teachings, she said.

THE FREE CHURCH OF ENGLAND SHOULD DO WHAT IT SAYS ON ITS EVANGELICAL TIN

But in the past few years its current Bishop Primus, John Fenwick, has been introducing Anglo-Catholic practices into the FCE, especially in its northern diocese. Convocation, which is supposed to be the governing body of the FCE, does not seem to have been doing much to stop this ironic departure from the FCE's founding convictions.

Episcopal Church will cease to have Sunday worship attendance in 30 years, seminary president warns

"It depicts a church that appears to be dying," said Stache, as reported by Egan Millard of Episcopal News Service, labeling the statistics "very sobering."

At the current rate of decline, according to Stache, the denomination will have no Sunday attendance in 30 years and no baptized members in 47 years.

Despite the somber report on statistics, Stache also said that the decline might be less showing a dying church and more one that is becoming "something we have yet to imagine."

THE APOPLECTIC, APOLOGETIC ARCHBISHOP OF CANTERBURY

Ironically, the States of Jersey Police and Hampshire Constabulary did investigate the allegations in 2008 but found that there was insufficient evidence to proceed.

*****

In January of 2016, the Archbishop of Canterbury faced protesters outside of Canterbury Cathedral in Kent, where he apologized to the homosexual and lesbian community for the 'hurt and pain' still being caused by the church. Welby said it was a 'constant source of deep sadness' for people who are persecuted for their sexuality.

Kenyans won't just take the money

As many daily struggle for basics like food, clean water and shelter, re- fusing such offers is incredibly hard. Another aspect here is the lucrative nature of transactional gay sex: prostitutes can earn 5,000 Kenyan Shillings (around £38) per act. Given such temptation, it is a miracle any manage to get out.

Thankfully, other aid is being found but daunting challenges remain.

SYDNEY: Former Army Colonel becomes bishop in khaki

"No-one is more surprised than me about this, but I am comforted to know that it didn't take God by surprise," Mr Dibden said. "I'm also comforted by the fact that God promises to be with all of us until the end of the age (Matt 28:20) and so I can rely on Him and know that with His help I will be able to fulfil this most important role."

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.
