Members of the Church of England House of Bishops and the Roman Catholic Bishopsâ€™ Conference of England and Wales are in London today for their second bi-lateral meeting on shared Christian witness.
The meeting between the bishops is taking place at Lambeth Palace, the official residence of the head of the Church of England, Archbishop of Canterbury Dr Rowan Williams, and follows a similar meeting held in Leeds in 2006.
The meeting will be chaired jointly by Dr Williams and the head of the Roman Catholic Church of England and Wales, Cardinal Cormac Murphy-Oâ€™Connor....
Statement for the CofE/RCC bishops who are the modern pharisees of today.
Matt 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
24 Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel.
25 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye make clean the outside of the cup and of the platter, but within they are full of extortion and excess.
26 Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within the cup and platter, that the outside of them may be clean also.
27 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness.
28 Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity.
You are right Faithful Remnant. They should not be called Anglicans, its an abuse of the word. For true Anglicans visit www.cofec.org the website of The Church of England (Continuing). Please check out their audio sermons to hear some excellent and sound teaching from a Bible-Anglican perspective.
Maybe these compromisers should not even be called Anglican, since their original confession of faith( one of the confessions to which I hold) declares the Roman church has erred in many things and declares the scriptures to be sufficient.
What ever happen to preaching that the Pope is antichrist? And that Rome is the whore of Revelation 17. All of Rome's apostate children are coming home to roost! The Anglican church is first to come home. Welcome separated brethren!
