Anglicans and Catholics Reaffirm Commitment to Unity
Anglicans and Roman Catholics have outlined the next step on the road to unity in a 44-page report entitled ‚ÄúGrowing Together in Unity and Mission‚ÄĚ.
The statement was agreed by the International Anglican Roman Catholic Commission for Unity and Mission (IARCCUM) and released on Friday by the Anglican Communion Office and the Information Service of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity.
In a preface written in 2006 by John Bathersby, the Roman Catholic Archbishop of Brisbane, and David Beetge, Anglican Bishop of Highveld, the document was described as a ‚Äúcall for action, based upon an honest appraisal of what has been achieved in our dialogue‚ÄĚ....
To: Desie, Dan, Abigail, Jim - Shame on you. You teach against the Catholic church as if 1) you knew the truth authoritatively, 2) in a way that shows the darkness of your own hearts as you live in hatred, 3) with no knowledge of what the church actually teaches. If you knew what she taught, you would be much more careful about insulting the bride of Christ and calling her a harlot.
How could any Christian be so hateful? Or did Jesus teach that Hate is okay? Oh, wait. No. He said to love even your enemies.
Just out of curiosity, are most of you on here age 15 or something? Because the way you flash your pride and throw around the word "heresy" as if you even knew what "orthodoxy" was, it really makes me wonder how old you are.
In other words, grow up and learn how to dialogue, not sling insults at sincere Christians.
My heart breaks, and yet there is hope. As an Anglican, this appears to be just one more sad step by the primarily Western part of the church to deny the truth of scripture. HOWEVER, the majority of Anglicans worldwide are not standing for this heresy. Many of the leaders of the church in Asia, Africa and South America have called for the American church to repent. Pray with us that they will not have stiff necks and stone hearts.
Why, G.G., you are right! if you you were talking about his Unholiness, the Pope!
"Jeremiah 23 2 Therefore thus saith Jehovah the God of Israel concerning the shepherds that feed my people: Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith Jehovah. Jeremiah 50 6 My people are lost sheep; their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they turned them away on the mountains: they went from mountain to hill, they forgot their resting-place. Matthew 15 9 but in vain do they worship me, teaching [as] teachings commandments of men. 1Timothy 4 2 speaking lies in hypocrisy, cauterised as to their own conscience,"
Now this was an interesting article,"Antichrist in the Footsteps of the Saviour"
Anglicans, this applies in the spiritual sense, too:
1Co 6:15 Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. 1Co 6:16 What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh.
You are uniting with The Harlot. You are thereby becoming a harlot yourself.
