Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

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.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

Anglican Nigeria-England Rift Deepens

The response of Archbishop Peter Akinola of Nigeria to the affront by pro-gay/lesbian elements of the Church of England, Episcopal Church USA and the Canadian Episcopal Church is both appropriate and necessary. The Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, is an apostate who is trying to surreptitiously install homosexual deacons, priests and bishops in the Anglican Communion. This crisis calls for nothing short of divorce.

The analogy of the Protestant Reformation comes to mind here where Protestants divorced the Roman Catholic Church because it refused to reform itself from doctrinal errors that had been incorporated into the traditions of the church without Scriptural support. This divorce in the Anglican Communion is a divorce filed by the conservative and orthodox Anglicans who stand for the Gospel as it is taught in Holy Scripture. Conservatives will not allow themselves to be in communion with those who have left the Christian faith and have attempted to push the rest of the church into a similar apostasy.

We truly are in the end times when wicked and pernicious homosexuals are consecrated in a church that is supposed to be godly and holy. I care not that hypocrites in favor of homosexuality will be upset by my remarks. If the Church of England wishes to declare war on conservatives in the communion, then so be it. War it is.

This break with England should come as no surprise since Archbishop Peter Akinola warned the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Primates of this move last year in his remarks here:


Sincerely in Christ,
