Archbishop of Canterbury calls for 'footwashing' church

The Archbishop of Canterbury has called for a Church that is united, confident and humble in working together for the common good.

The Most Reverend Justin Welby said Christians were not called to be useful but to bring about a revolution of peace and love by becoming a "footwashing" church.

He said it was the role of the church to identify with the poor in a way that "stands us alongside them, not just talking to them".

Commenting on the state of the UK economy, he said the way to recovery was not through inflation, which he described as the "worst tax on the poor" because of its hammering effect on food and fuel prices. ...

"The Church of England has been accused of “dumbing down” its traditional christening ceremony after rewriting the service for a modern congregation.
Parents and godparents are no longer asked to “reject the devil”, “repent of sins” or “submit” to Christ under the new wording, aimed at making the service easier to understand.
But critics claim the new version strips out “key elements” of the baptism service and undermines its meaning, according to the Mail on Sunday."

The Church of England is dumbing down the presence of sin which is a Liberal concept. Satan the head of Liberal churches wants man to think of himself as being much better than the depraved sinner and evil hearted reprobate which he is. This is strawman religion which Satan can easily defeat.

Why did the act of foot washing exist 2000 years ago in Palestine?
Because after trudging through the desert your feet were sandy, hot and dirty. Hence the connection with desert.
If they had tarmac highways and roads back then - then foot washing wouldn't have been necessary and would not have existed. Which is why it does not fit into modern society.
Humility? Because the servant who did the foot washing was usually the lowest slave in the household. The Son of God brought Himself low to make the point. The Archbishop of Canterbury raised himself up before trying to copy the Lord, which shows him to be a hypocrite.
Even Jesus used means to communicate His teachings.
John 13:12
"So after he had washed their feet, and had taken his garments, and was set down again, he said unto them, Know ye what I have done to you?"

And they said "You washed our feet because they were dirty from walking in the desert"? Perhaps not.

Rather, as you said, the Lord brought himself low to make the point. The point was to exhibit the example that they should be humble before one another, which is what he was teaching by the washing. I think there is also a forgive one another element in it as well.

Hey, His Unholiness Francis foot-washed the feet of some teenage girls this year, (let's hope that might put his thinking in the right direction! ) instead of those of the pampered cardinals.

When a church is devoid of Christianity such as the United Methodist, Anglican, and Catholic churches they turn to social and political issues. Of course UMC and Anglican probably also suffer from a problem that Roman Catholics, Mormons and Jehovah Witnesses (PDF), though to a lesser degree???

I'll bet there's a connection between footwashing and the poor in there somewhere.

The Bible ref to Jesus washing the feet of others had nothing to do with cleaning their feet, or the desert. It had to do with presenting an example of humility for his followers.

Rukwe writes:
"Footwashing" is meaningless theatrics"

Good choice of words.
Footwashing, that's the ticket. Not unlike providing aluminum foil to drug users in an effort to get them to stop doing drugs all together, this is another one of those ideas that I can't believe hadn't been considered earlier.

"...foot washing will bring about a revolution of peace and love...it will helpuusto identify with the homeless."

Um...huh? Interesting how such nonsense is considered profound and thought to be an answer to anything. I think what's important above all else is teaching and preaching what the Bible says one must do to be saved. Period. He makes it sound as if foot washing is some holy thing that that will bring the lost to Christ and the foot washers closer to God.

'...the State Church, which the great reformers had planted, and which some of them had watered with their blood, presented the spectacle which went far to justify the sarcasm of an eminent writer, that she possessed "A Popish Liturgy, a Calvinistic Creed, and an Arminian Clergy."'

"Footwashing" is meaningless theatrics in a modern society which is not surrounded by desert. It is typical of the Bibleless Liberals who would prefer to flaunt their politically correct spectacle pleasing to man.

The Archbishop of Canterbury clearly cannot read the Bible and is not Christian, but then neither is the Anglican club he runs. With their women squabbling over the top job of bishop and their pulpits filled with the abomination Satan clearly is in charge of this religious fallacy.
