ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Anglicans Ablaze: Pat Robertson Says The Episcopal Church Is Becoming 'Apostate'

Anglicans Ablaze reports that Pat Robertson thinks the Anglican Communion will declare The Episcopal Church to be apostate:
In remarks made on the 700 Club on Wednesday, Robertson stated that "the whole Episcopal Church in America has left its roots" and that it being declared apostate "is on the way."

Robert H. Lundy, communications officer for the American Anglican Council, a conservative movement hoping to return The Episcopal Church to "an apostolic faith," told The Christian Post that he agreed with Robertson's assessment.
Although I agree that The Episcopal Church is apostate, the Anglican Communion will not declare TEC to be apostate.  Why not?  Well, the Anglican Communion itself is apostate and theologically liberal, particularly in England where the Archbishop of Canterbury heads up the council of bishops.  In the UK there is a strong push for the acceptance of openly homosexual ministers and bishops as well as the ordination of women.  None of this has been accepted as of yet but it is merely a matter of time before that happens in the United Kingdom.

The Global South, including the Sydney Anglicans, is also under assault by those promoting the immorality of the gay/lesbian/transgender agenda.  In Africa most of the provinces are morally conservative but unfortunately Evangelicalism and Reformed theology is no longer dominate but in fact Anglo-Catholic theology has taken the upper hand even in the Global South.  Sydney is probably the only province that still stands against the theology of glory and the semi-papist theology of the Tractarian movement.  Even in Sydney Evangelicals are too liberal because they insist that Anglo-Catholics are not lost but are simply separated brethren.

If Roman Catholicism is a false religion, it logically follows that Anglo-Catholicism is a false religion and that those who are caught up in those false gospels need conversion to the true Gospel of sovereign grace through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Of course, most Evangelicals are Arminians and are lost themselves--which explains why the Evangelicals and Catholics Together movement is alive and well.  Even Albert Mohler is no longer consistent on this point, even participating in a conservative Anglo-Catholic conference (see Mere Anglicanism) in South Carolina a couple of years ago and signing the Manhattan Declaration!  (See also:  AlbertMohler.com:  When the Lights Go Out:  The Death of a Denomination).

Pat Robertson is an Arminian and a Charismatic.  He thinks conservative Anglo-Catholics and Roman Catholics are saved and on their way to heaven.  In short, Pat Robertson is as lost as any "apostate" Episcopalian and so is the pope.

There is only one Gospel and those who preach another gospel are leading people astray.  (Galatians 1:6-9; Acts 4:10, 12; John 14:6; Romans 3:23-25; Jude 1:3).  Where in the following video by Archbishop Rowan Williams do you hear any appeal to the final authority of Scripture or the 39 Articles of Religion?

Who is the more sickening: Pat Robertson or Rowan Williams? Can't make up my mind. On most days I'd easily go with Williams, but ol' Pat is never to be counted out of that race. And day by day 'Sleazy Al' Mohler is quietly gaining ground on the both of 'em. All "slime of the same mould," if you will.

Well, you know Baptists are Baptists first so all the Arminian Baptists are just fine. Of course Arminianism is why Billy Graham compromised on those issues. The real irony is Billy Graham was the son of a Presbyterian minister. Go figure.
