We all knew it was coming to this. Denouncing the culmination of a tragic dance with homosexuality in the US based Episcopal Church, Bishop NT Wright wrote to the Times of London, “In the slow-moving train crash of international Anglicanism, a decision taken in California has finally brought a large coach off the rails altogether.”
When biblical Anglicans within the Episcopal church disfellowshipped themselves over the wanton acceptance of homosexuality, we knew it would only be a matter of time before Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori and her band of theives would move to put sexually immoral people in leadership.
The installation of Bishop Vickie Gene Robinson proved to be completely disastrous for the Episcopal Church USA with serious reverberations throughout worldwide Anglicanism. Other denominations should take note. If you want your church destroyed and turned over to demonic influence, it will happen if you sit passively and do nothing.
According to the Washington Times, on yesterday the church reversed the ban on gay bishops enacted in 2006 after the outrage over Robinson’s illicit consecration.
“The U.S. Episcopal Church put itself on a collision course with the rest of the Anglican Communion by formally approving Tuesday the ordination of gay bishops, defying warnings that the Church of England may respond by recognizing a rival Anglican church.
The 2.1-million-member U.S. branch of the Anglican Communion also was preparing Wednesday to approve blessing ceremonies for same-sex unions, a further slap at the Archbishop of Canterbury, who warned the U.S. church last week not to act in ways that deepen the splits in the 77-million-member worldwide communion.
In Tuesday’s actions, the U.S. church reversed a promise made to the rest of the communion by agreeing to end the church’s gay-bishop ban, which the church imposed in 2006 at its last triennial convention after the worldwide furor over the 2003 consecration of Bishop V. Gene Robinson of New Hampshire.”
Since elected, Jefferts-Schori has acted as the head witch, leading the charge to turn God’s house of prayer into a den of thieves. Read here and here how she has played out her wicked vendetta against bishops and churches who refused to accept the immoral leadership of Vickie Gene Robinson.
The depth of darkness, heresy and deception enshrouding the church is stunning.
“Bishop John B. Chane of Washington, who had said earlier he did not think the “time was right” to end the ban, told The Washington Times on Tuesday that he had shifted his position. As the debate intensified, he said, he realized a ban on gay clergy “prohibited dioceses from being open to the power of the Holy Spirit.”
When you attribute the work of satan to the Holy Spirit Jesus said it is an act of blasphemy against the Holy Spirit that would not be forgiven.
“And the scribes who came down from Jerusalem were saying, ‘He is possessed by Beelzebul,’ and ‘He casts out the demons by the ruler of the demons.
Jesus replied in part, “Truly I say to you, all sins shall be forgiven the sons of men, and whatever blasphemies they utter; but whoever blasphemes against the Holy Spirit never has forgiveness, but is guilty of an eternal sin” (Mark 3.22,28, 29).
The bishop who says allowing self identified homosexual Christians in ministry is a work of the Holy Spirit crossed over the line. Blaspheming against the Spirit is much deeper than flippant remarks. It is the act of rejecting the witness of God who alone can convict man of his sin (John 16:8-11).
