International Pentecostal Church of Christ writes ABC over Robinson Consecration

International Pentecostal Church of Christ writes Williams over Robinson

The following is a letter to the Archbishop:

The Right Reverend Dr Rowan Williams
Archbishop of Canterbury
Lambeth Palace
London SE1 7JU England

Dear Archbishop Williams:

Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and the Lord Jesus
Christ .

As the leader of a small American Wesleyan Pentecostal denomination, we
acknowledge a lineage through the Church of England. Our most popular
Bible translation comes from your James I. Our political family and many
of our bloodlines are linked. Our marriage ceremonies have elements
passed down through t he centuries from the Church of England. It is
conceivable that we would be paying homage to Rome today, had it not
been for the Church of England.

I acknowledge that you have sufficient challenges within your own
communion not to worry about those without. However; in reflection of
the effect that our television evangelists and molestation scandals have
had on the universal church, I wish to plead with you to consider the
damage the ordination of the homosexual bishop may do to all churches.
As a rising tide raises all ships, I am afraid that a recessing tide
lowers all ships and churches. I have observed your pleasing comments
about Bishop Robinson's appointment and t rust there is more you can do.

All churches are called to a prophetic role in society, not to be a
mirror. The unchurched are looking for a way up, not a way out. Please
help us counter the moral slide that threatens all cultures who look to
Christianity as a moral examples.

Thank you for your consideration.


Clyde M. Hughes, Bishop
International Pentecostal Church of Christ
