June 02 2005 By virtueonline Anglican Crisis in UK...20 bishops could decide future of ECUSA...Diocesan news

But that is not the only crisis the C of E faces. Homosexual priests will be allowed to "marry" their boyfriends under a proposal drawn up by senior bishops, led by Rowan Williams, the archbishop of Canterbury. The condition is that they must stay celibate. This apparently also applies to lesbian priests and their girlfriends.

According to my source the meeting collapsed.

REINFORCING the idea that the communion will never make up its collective mind on the rights and wrongs of homoerotic behavior, Anglican troubleshooter Robin Eames issued a warning this week that all the ingredients are there for schism over the consecration of gay bishops.

He did it on the steps of the capitol in Hartford, Connecticut, in the company of nine other orthodox ECUSA bishops and a Ugandan bishop. The leader of the Anglican Communion Network blasted the Episcopal Church's revisionist bishops, saying they were promoting a counterfeit religion, while he lauded the "Connecticut Six" orthodox Episcopal clergy for standing for the "faith once delivered."

In a speech at St. Mark's Episcopal Cathedral in Salt Lake City, Griswold said, "The Holy Spirit prods and prompts us to go beyond what seems acceptable and normative."

Conservative Episcopalians and other Anglicans abroad say the Bible is clear that God reserves physical intimacy for a husband and wife. The Episcopal presiding bishop said, "Some of the law needs to be kept, but not all of the law needs to be kept."

Griswold doesn't get it. If the church has no clear moral teaching on sexual behavior, then doing good works with our millions makes us no different from the Lions or Kiwanis Club or, for that matter, a major non-profit agency like World Vision International -- which, incidentally, is more demonstrably Christian than the Episcopal Church.

April 28 2005 By virtueonline ASIA: Sleeping Giant awakes...Rowan in Rome...ECUSA news...more

How do you explain an Episcopal process that starts with bad teaching in the seminaries, which in turn filters into the pulpits with theologically deconstructed priests preaching "inclusion" down into the pews, with the whole show being led by bishops who no longer believe in the authority of Scripture? I didn't have the heart to tell them.

This is the Church in Southeast Asia -- a church driven by mission to save souls, and not just in thriving metropolitan areas like Singapore, but in cities like Kuala Lumpur, Kota Kinabalu, and in interior churches locked in jungle areas like Keningau, Lahad Datu, Beluran and Telupid.

But the silver lining is that new laws that make it impossible for Indonesians to stay in Malaysia for any length of time as workers, means that, for those who convert to Christ they can now take the gospel back to their own country, proclaim it and plant churches in the most densely populated Islamic country on earth. Malaysian Christians are not permitted to cross borders to do this.

April 05 2005 By virtueonline DEATH haunts church...Network leader says orthodox are powerless...diocesan news

It's a wonder we haven't heard from Frank Griswold or a revisionist Episcopal Bishop or two talking about how hateful the actions and words of these global religious leaders is and the hurt it causes a small hard core coterie of Episcopal pansexualists bent on changing the church's 2,000 year old teaching on sexual morality. Indeed the very silence of Dr. Rowan Williams, the leader of 80 million Anglicans speaks volumes.

Of the dozens of parishes (and they are usually large) that have left revisionist dioceses in the ECUSA, this writer can think of only one parish that has not made it. In every instance where a revisionist bishop has come down hard on orthodox priests who will not toe the pansexual line, the initial agony has been great, the soul-searching severe, the break usually painful, but in the end they have always come out on top.
