GREAT NEWS !!!! There is Life in the Valley of dead mens’ bones !!!!! Keep GAFCON in your prayers !!!

This  blog  has  often wondered  out loud :   when  would  the less  than useless, functional atheist,  5th columnist  Church of  England   (CofE)  close  its doors  and disappear  into  the pages  of  history so  it is  great  pleasure  to  report  that  the dead bone  of  the CofE appears  to be coming  to life.

The Global Anglican Future Conference, or GAFCON, a spirit – lead and truth-inspired wing of  the a church which was formed in 2009 to counter  the functional atheist path the church has been pursing reports  that it has planted  483 new congregations.   This  while  the functional atheist wing  of the church is  dying.

This is good  news as the functional atheist wing  of  the church  will inevitably die out and  without  making  converts  as it has  nothing  to offer. In time  the  spirit -lead  and  truth – inspired GAFCON will  become  the  dominant  face  of  the CofE.

We must continue  to  pray for continue growth  of  the spirit – lead and  truth -inspired   GAFCON and  exit  of  the functional  atheists  from the leadership  of  the church to  the secular  humanists  organisations with whom they share world view.

Widely viewed as a schismatic movement, the Global Anglican Future Conference, or GAFCON, a grouping of conservative Anglicans, says it is not leaving the worldwide Anglican Communion.
Instead, the movement says it is committed to renewing the 85 million-member communion from within.

GAFCON members from Africa, Europe, America and Asia, met in London last week, where they discussed the future of global Anglicanism.

“The members of our churches stand at the heart of the communion, which is why we are committing to its renewal,” the GAFCON Primate Council said in a statement at the end of the April 13-17 conference. “We belong to the mainstream, and we are moving forward.”

The movement started in Jerusalem in 2008 as a response to the consecration of openly gay Bishop Gene Robinson by the Episcopal Church.

It has gained ground, planting 483 new congregations in North America since 2009, Archbishop Foley Beach of the Anglican Church in North America reported at the meeting.

Beach, who heads a rival group to the Episcopal Church, was elected to the GAFCON Council, the top decision making organ of the movement. Fellowships of Anglicans in Australia, England and Ireland are affiliated with GAFCON.

According to the statement, the movement says it has prioritized clear theological education and training of leaders, especially bishops.

At the London meeting, the primates said they are concerned the mother church has drifted away from biblical faith and voiced a new concern: interfaith relationships with Muslims.

“We do not regard the recent use of a Church of England building for a Muslim service as a minor aberration,” the council said. “These actions betray the Gospel and discourage Christians who live among Muslims, especially those experiencing persecution.”

In the past, some GAFCON bishops have criticized the Anglican Communion for being supportive of gays and lesbians.
