Anglican Communion News Service (ACNS hereafter) ENGLAND - 25 OCTOBER 2003

RECLAIMING CHRISTIAN ORTHODOXY: ADDRESS BY BISHOP MICHAEL INGHAM AT HALFWAY TO LAMBETH CONFERENCE (Edited by DCB) The Bishop began by saying the Anglican Church "…is re-thinking its traditional stance on homosexuality. We have become aware in the last several years that gay and lesbian Christians have been starved and denied the spiritual food of acceptance and love they have a right to expect as baptised members of the Body of Christ."

Ingham said "...we here today, believe that God is calling the church to end discrimination and prejudice based on sexual orientation. We believe that the continued exclusion of people through the misuse of Scripture, and the repetition of inherited and unexamined prejudices against minorities, is a sin against the love of God."

Then Ingham had the audacity to say the actions concerning sodomites in the ministry "have been guided by the Holy Spirit, which is the Spirit of freedom and of truth. They were taken in response to changes in the sciences and social sciences that affect our understanding of human sexuality."

Editor’s Comment: Ingham spoke of the guiding of the Holy Spirit but John writes in 1 John 4: 1 "Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world."

JOHN SHELBY SPONG INTERVIEW 16 October 2003 – This is a transcript of the SBS programme INSIGHT. (Edited by DCB) The transcript begins with the question "Should homosexuals be welcomed into the Anglican Church and allowed to become bishops?" Jenny Brockie is the interviewer.

BROCKIE: "…fundamentalists would argue that…the scriptures…support their argument that homosexuality is inappropriate, that it is unacceptable in the church."

SPONG: That's correct. The Bible was written between 1000 B.C. and 135 A.D. How many people would go to a doctor who practised medicine out of a textbook that had that mentality in it?" "We used the Bible to condemn Galileo in the 17th century because Galileo thought the sun rotated around the earth and we quoted the story from Joshua where God stops the sun in the sky to allow Joshua to kill more Amorites and they said we, you know, if God can stop the sun, that's clear proof the sun rotates around the earth, well the Bible was wrong."

BROCKIE: "I wonder why you think fundamentalism is so prominent at the moment across religions. We hear of it in Islam, we see a lot of it in Christianity. Why do you think that is?"

SPONG: "Human beings are animals who are chronically anxious." "Human beings are chronically anxious about death. Religion speaks to the deep anxiety of the human soul and unfortunately distorts the human soul."

BROCKIE: "You refer to there being no external God, for example, you challenge the value of prayer, the meaning of the Bible, the appropriateness of the 10 commandments and so on. Why do you continue to call yourself a Christian?"

SPONG: "I am very, very deeply committed to the Christian faith and to the Christian story. Jesus, to me, is the very centre of all that I am. He's the life through whom I see the meaning of God and I want to walk into that meaning." "I think Christianity is a system that human beings have created to enable us to walk into the mystery and wonder of God…"

BROCKIE: "I wonder if you can disprove an external God scientifically, how is it that you can't equally disprove an internal God?"

SPONG: "I think God is a transcendent reality that we can experience." "So I'm not sure that external or internal or any other human word is going to be particularly adequate. I am convinced of the reality of God, I am convinced that life has a transcendent dimension that permeates our consciousness periodically and that sustains us."

BROCKIE: "How are you convinced of that?"

SPONG: "I believe divinity and humanity are not two separate categories and I think if you want to be defined, if we want to use that language, that the doorway into divinity is to be as totally and completely human as you can."

ALSO ON SPONG’S VISIT: The Uniting Church in Australia Web site: "October 17 Bishop Spong, will speak at Pitt St Uniting Church 264 Pitt St Sydney. During worship 10 am Sunday 10 October (free entry) and again at 7.30 pm. Friday 17 October for which entry will be $10 or $5 concession. Pre-booking strongly advised for Friday night to avoid disappointment."

Editor’s Comment: I cannot imagine anyone being disappointed if they did not hear this apostate let alone pay to hear him! The Uniting Church once again shows forth its apostasy. 1Timothy 4:1 "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.", October 22, 2003- GLOBAL 'GAY' EVENT TARGETS JERUSALEM

"A massive, international "gay pride" event previously held in Rome, at the doorstep of the Vatican, has chosen Jerusalem as its next venue." A sodomite website said "The InterPride celebration attracted about a quarter of a million homosexuals in 2000 and expects to host the largest ‘gay’ event ever in the Holy Land in 2005."

The executive director of Jerusalem Gay and Lesbian Center said "An event of this magnitude has never occurred before anywhere in Israel."

Editor’s Comment: Romans 1: 26, 27 "For this cause God gave them up unto vile affections: for even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: 27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet."

THE FEDERALIST BRIEF 13 October 2003 CULTURE- "In a public school in St. Louis, a teacher spotted the suspect, fourth-grader Raymond Raines, bowing his head in prayer before lunch.  The teacher stormed to Raymond's table, ordered him to stop immediately and sent him to the principal's office. The principal informed the young malefactor that praying was not allowed in school.  When Raymond was again caught praying before meals on three separate occasions, he was segregated from other students, ridiculed in front of his classmates, and finally sentenced to a week's detention. ... In another display of tolerance at Lynn Lucas Middle School, school administrators snatched three students' books with covers displaying the Ten Commandments, ripped the covers off, threw them in the garbage, and told the students that the Ten Commandments constituted 'hate speech.' (Also, it would be insensitive to expose the Ten Commandments to students who had never been taught to count to 10.)" (Ann Coulter)

Editor’s Comment: Psalm 33:12 "Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD…"

Yours against apostasy and for Biblical truth,

David C. Bennett, Titus 2:13
