The U.S. Episcopal Church Amends the Terms “Husband and Wife” To Find Favor With the LGBT Community

Very soon traditional marriage vows will be outlawed and a thing of the past as the Episcopal Church in the United States leads the way in amending the terms “husband” and “wife” from its marital liturgy compromising the standard of God to find favor with the LGBT community.

MMMMMMM
Very soon traditional marriage vows/ceremonies will be outlawed and a thing of the past as the Episcopal Church in the United States leads the way in amending the terms “husband” and “wife” from its marital liturgy compromising the standard of God to find favor with the LGBT community. Phrases related to “procreation” will also be deleted, to not offend those who do not identify as heterosexual despite what the bible they read each Sunday says about homosexuality.
 
According to LifeSite News, the change aims to make the church’s marriage ceremonies more “gay-friendly.” Indeed, Gay and lesbian Episcopalians have been increasingly vocal in their complaints that the language of the current liturgy (the same liturgy that has been in effect for decades) is now considered offensive and exclusionary. Being a member of the worldwide Anglican Communion, the US Episcopal Church comes under the loose governance of the Church of England, and consequently the Archbishop of Canterbury.
According to the Telegraph, the Church of England’s Secretary General William Nye has been heavily critical of the change to such a sacred text and even threatened to cut ties with the U.S. church if it decides to introduce the new service as standard, and toss out the current wording in its Book of Common Prayer.
 
The drastic change would see the new service replace the phrase “the union of husband and wife” with “the union of two people.”Couples will still be able to opt for the most traditional “husband” and “wife” when making their vows, but this will not be included in the standardized version. In his letter, Nye urged that using the new language as standard would lead to a growing “pressure to dissociate” the Church of England from the U.S. Episcopal church, warning that conservative members would see any such change to marriage liturgy as “completely unacceptable.” Nye warned the Episcopal Church to avoid “irrevocably redefining marriage” through railroading their new liturgical language into Church proceedings.

However, many liberal members of the Church of England have voiced their support for the move, and hit back at Nye for speaking on their behalf.
 
“Thank you for leading the way on this important issue,” a group wrote in an open letter posted online.
 
“We are grateful that you have recognized that not all married couples can have children and that a gender-neutral approach will enable us to become a loving and inclusive Church for all. We still have a few problems to sort out over here with those who keep threatening to leave, but we know that your actions have given great hope to thousands and shown that the Church is not as homophobic as it can sometimes appear.  We therefore want to publicly ‘dissociate’ ourselves from Mr Nye’s initial response and are expecting ‘stringent consequences’ as a result of his actions.”
 
Another liberal faith organization affiliated with the Church of England penned a direct response to Nye following his published letter.
 
“You will be aware that your previously undisclosed letter to The Episcopal Church has been met with anger, frustration and disappointment by many across the Church of England, on whose behalf you presume to speak,” read a letter from OneBodyOneFaith, addressed to Nye.
 
In its “About Us” section, OneBody’s website reads:
 
“OneBodyOneFaith works for the full inclusion of gay, lesbian, bisexual. transgender and intersex people in the Christian churches. We believe that human sexuality in all its richness is a gift of God gladly to be accepted, enjoyed and honoured as a way both of expressing and growing in love, and that it is entirely compatible with the Christian faith not only to love another person of the same sex, but to express that love fully in a personal sexual relationship.”
 
The head of the Anglican Communion, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, has continued to affirm the traditional definition of marriage as between one man and one woman. With that being said, Welby made some controversial remarks in a November 2017 interview in which he stated that he was unable to say whether sodomy is sinful or not.
 
“You know very well that is a question I can’t give a straight answer to. Sorry, badly phrased there. I should have thought that one through,” Welby told former Labour Party spin doctor Alastair Campbell in a candid interview at GQ Magazine.
 
“I don’t do blanket condemnation and I haven’t got a good answer to the question,” he added. “I’ll be really honest about that. I know I haven’t got a good answer to the question. Inherently, within myself, the things that seem to me to be absolutely central are around faithfulness, stability of relationships and loving relationships.”
 
Welby continued: 
 
“I am also aware – a view deeply held by tradition since long before Christianity, within the Jewish tradition — that marriage is understood invariably as being between a man and a woman. Or, in various times, a man and several women, if you go back to the Old Testament.  I know that the Church around the world is deeply divided on this in some places, including the Anglicans and other Churches, not just us, and we are — the vast majority of the Church is — deeply against gay sex.”
 
Welby added: “I don’t think it is sinful to say that you disagree with gay sex. But to express that by way of hatred for people is absolutely wrong in the same way as misogyny or racism is wrong.”

“This is why “the church” has lost it’s credibility and effectiveness in the community. The modern day church goes with the flow of the world instead of standing for and implementing an example of holiness as God requires despite who is offended by it. The actions of the Episcopal Church in the United States and it’s supporters is a blatant mockery of Christianity and the message of Christ. There is absolutely no fear of God in today’s church- the true gospel has been watered down, and commercialized and is in the hands of perverts masquerading as church leaders. Those who claim to be true lovers of God should come out of Babylon before it’s too late!” ~ Catherine Sutton/ Winston Salem, NC

American prophets made in Africa

There are certain shrines (oracles) in West Africa where people go to take SPIRITUAL BATHS to become a “prophetic papa” with demonic wonder working powers. Using mediums to predict the future, reveal secrets, and manifest fake miracles

While on vacation in West Africa I met a spiritualist who gave me names of American pastors who go to him for “spiritual fortification” to perform fake signs and wonders in their churches, he has given some of them magic that they wave in their handkerchiefs in church to make people fall out (the congregation will think that it is “the anointing” that’s making them fall). I became very interested in this scheme of the enemy so I interviewed an African man [who is also a missionary worker, author and teacher] named Mordecai Egwuowu Uka Dike asking him everything that I could think of regarding demonic powers in Africa, and how Americans/Africans dabble into this arena of witchcraft to obtain power to fool church goers, and here is just a little of what he shared with me: “There are spiritualists in Africa; Senegal, Mali, Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon, Congo, Benin Republic,Togo etc. who can fortify someone with a familiar spirit and the person will instantly begin to see spiritual things that the natural eyes cannot see. In 1993 someone called Prophet Peter, whose “church” was at Obalende, Lagos Nigeria (right opposite of P&T) tried to initiate me into his secret prophetic brotherhood, he said he loved the zeal that I have for the Lord and wanted to help me by giving me extra ordinary powers to prophecy and to manifest miracles.

In Niger Republic 2000, while serving as a missionary in Konni village, one of the oldest Muslim spiritualists offered to give to me “miracle working powers” he inherited from his ancestors, in which I refused. When the main “O O Obu,” known as the spiritual head of the Brotherhood Of The Cross and Star was still alive, I personally know certain preachers that went to him and received “a spiritual gift” to function as seers. When TB Joshua came to South Africa (I was there as a missionary worker) some “ministers” went to him secretly to receive spiritual impartation, so that they can attract large crowds and function as prophets. There are certain shrines (oracles) in West Africa where people go to take SPIRITUAL BATHS to become a “prophetic papa” with demonic wonder working powers. Using mediums to predict the future, reveal secrets, and manifest fake miracles through demonic powers is not something new, it is an ancient practice but our African ancestors did not use these ancient mystical powers to operate churches. It’s frightening how young people these days are conjuring up these old deities and using their powers to fool people in their so-called churches, calling themselves prophets and prophetesses. What most don’t know is that they are going to pay a bitter price at the end here on earth, except they confess their sins and do away with those mediums. Don’t be deceived, not every person who calls himself or herself a prophet or gives an accurate prediction is a true prophet. There are many occultists, witches and wizards, psychics, shamans, and spiritualists in churches today predicting future events such as accidents, promotions, telling you your name, address, bank account information, phone numbers and so forth to gain recognition and to lure innocent souls into darkness. Let us not forget that EVIL SPIRITS can prophesy too and work miracles….

I was in a place called “Dogodoutche” in Niger Republic, there I witnessed Bori (idol) worshipers levitate, prophesy, and they spoke in tongues when evil spirits known as “Zanzana”, “Dango”, and “Donkawa” possessed the worshipers. I have also encountered a spiritualist who told me what and how I prayed in my prayer room. There is no doubt that some wizards and spiritualists can monitor what you are doing wherever you are- there is no distance in the spirit realm!”

As mentioned earlier, just because someone makes an accurate prediction doesn’t mean that he/she is a prophet of God. Just remember that prophets, diviners, psychics, and spiritualists outwardly look very much alike and all have the spiritual ability to reveal hidden things, foretell futures and manifest “miracles” as a genuine prophet of God has the ability to wear a suit, or a white collar to preach in a pulpit, so can a magician transform himself or herself and put on a suit or dress with a bishops collar, change his/her occultic language to biblical language, and preach and prophesy in Christian’s church services and it’s happening every day; there are numerous dark spiritualists performing in “churches” today and the people are completely oblivious because they don’t know anything about the spiritual reality.
