John Henry Newman was canonised (“made a saint”) by Francis I, pope of Rome, on 13 October 2019.
The Bible says that all true living Christians are the Lord’s saints (e.g. Acts 9:32,41; Rom. 1:7; 15:25; 1 Cor. 1:2; 14:33; etc.). But according to Rome, the only “saints” are certain dead Papists whom Rome officially pronounces to be so. Papists are permitted to pray to them, seeking their aid and intercession with God, which is heretical as the Lord Jesus Christ alone is the only Mediator between God and men (Jn. 14:6; 1 Tim. 2:5). This is the evil and ancient practice of praying to the dead, forbidden in Scripture, for only God can hear and answer prayer (Deut. 18:10-12)! It is nothing but the ancient heathen belief in demigods, but under a “Christian” name. It is rank heathenism with no basis in the Bible. Continue reading →
Rowan Williams United Anglicanism and Paganism…and That Was Just for Starters
The dual priesthood of Rowan Williams: Anglican priest/archbishop, Druid priest
In late 2012 Rowan Williams, the Anglican archbishop of Canterbury, announced that he would be retiring, after a decade at the helm as spiritual leader of the world’s Anglicans (numbering something like 85 million souls). Anglicanism was in an appalling state long before Williams took over, but under his leadership it sunk to greater lows than ever. To call the Anglican institution a true Christian church is to utter a falsehood, and that there are men, professing to be Christians and evangelicals, who actually do so, is disgraceful. It cannot, by any stretch of the imagination, be accepted as a church. It is an utterly false religious institution masquerading as a Christian church, just like its mother, the Roman Catholic institution (Rev. 17:5).
Ecumenical relations between the Roman Catholic and the Anglican institutions have been progressing for decades. Much ground has been gained by Rome, at Canterbury’s expense. But now the pope of Rome has boldly and aggressively marched right into the Anglican ranks and made them an offer many will find difficult to refuse. On October 20, 2009, Benedict XVI made it possible for groups of traditionalist Anglicans to convert to Rome while still retaining many of their distinctive Anglican traditions! Continue reading →
When the world’s Anglican bishops gathered in Canterbury in mid-July for their once-a-decade general synod, known as the Lambeth Conference, they did so as the leaders of a religious institution in deep crisis. Two issues dominated the meeting, as everyone knew they would; two issues that have split the worldwide Anglican institution into two opposing camps: the issue of the acceptance of sodomites, sodomite “marriage”, and sodomite ordination into the Anglican priesthood; and the issue of women being ordained as Anglican bishops (they are already being ordained as priests). Anglican conservatives are opposed to these things; Anglican liberals, on the other hand, are in favour of both. Continue reading →
