GAFCON Petition

I love what some folks in the Church of England are doing right now. Thank God for the GAFCON conference and all the people that God used to draft the final statement that has given a lead to what I see will bring sparks of revival in the Anglican Communion.

A petition is available for online signature for those individuals who wish to indicate their solidarity with the GAFCON movement. The wording of the petition is,

"I stand in solidarity with the Jerusalem Declaration and Statement on the Global Anglican Future."

Just click here to sign online

Archbishop of Canterbury: 'Christian doctrine is offensive to Muslims'

It's time the Archbishop of Canterbury tell us actually who he is representing. Is he representing Christians or is he representing Moslems? Just a few weeks ago, he said that Britain should make allowance for Sharia Law.
Last month, a major section of Anglican Christians from around the world held a conference in Jerusalem under a movement - GAFCON, to fashion out the future of the church because of the Archbishop's lack of will to make a decision, or better said, implement decisions he reached with the other Archbishops in several meetings. Now the communion is torn. Many of the Archbishops and Bishops from several nations have boycotted the Lambeth Conference which started on the 15th of July, including "Dr Nazir-Ali, whose seat in Rochester is just 20 miles away." Dr Nazir-Ali was at the GAFCON conference.
Now he's at it again. Is this man real? Is he serious? Is he out to serve God? Is he a practicing Christian or just one of the nominal fellows what chose 'Church work' and are climbing the ladder of leadership because of their prowess? Or does he have a hidden agenda we are yet to know? Does he have convictions? By saying that 'Christian doctrine is offensive to Muslims', he disarms himself and others he represents the boldness to preach the gospel. If it offends the muslims, then what? Doesn't islamic teachings offend others? Why should we continue to capitulate all the time while islam assume a victim status at the expense of all other religions?
May God save from such men who will only end up preparing members for the 'great falling away.'
