The above pdf is from Creation Research here in Australia. I trust if you are a believer this will encourage you and if you are not a believer that God will use something in this pdf to convict you to where you will repent of your sins and turn by faith to Christ as your Saviour. If you do come to know the Lord Jesus as your personal Saviour please let me know.
‘A Church of England general synod member, who has received death threats for speaking against Queer Theory and LGBT pride events, has now been ‘rebuked’ by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York for challenging ‘same-sex blessings’.
The letter makes no mention of Mr Margrave receiving relentless online abuse, often from clergy, and being forced to install CCTV at his home over fears for his safety for communicating the CofE’s own teaching on human sexuality.
In recent weeks, the Archbishop of Canterbury reportedly asked LGBT activist, Jayne Ozanne, for a list of names of people who allegedly “preach messages that harm LGBT people” so he could “deal with” the issue.
Following commitments in his manifesto that saw Mr Margrave receive the most votes in his diocese for election to synod, Mr Margrave has repeatedly challenged the influence of Queer Theory and the sexualisation of children within the church.
Last week it was revealed, however, that the Diocese of Coventry, led by the Bishop of Coventry, Christopher Cocksworth, had capitulated to pressure from LGBT campaigners and resorted to reporting Mr Margrave’s Twitter activity to the police for alleged ‘hate crime’.
Today, the Church of England’s general synod begins against a fierce backdrop of division over proposed changes to the church’s doctrine on marriage and the proposed introduction of ‘same-sex blessings’.
Last year when Mr Margrave attended general synod, he had to have protection and a panic alarm set on his phone due to the level of threat to his safety.
Responding to the letter from the Archbishops, Mr Margrave has refused to apologise. He said: “The Archbishops of Canterbury and York make no reference in their letter to the constant abuse and death threats I have received for speaking biblical truth and for standing for the Church of England’s own teaching on human sexuality. Due to the level of threats I have received, I have had to install CCTV at my house and a panic alarm on my phone.
“I am being thrown under the bus, excluded, and treated like a leper in the name of inclusivity. The Archbishops of Canterbury and York are holding tight to their copy of Marx while leaving the Bible on a bookshelf.
“I will not apologise for speaking the truth. I do not believe I have done anything wrong. I have been honest, transparent and faithful.
“This letter is a thinly veiled and bullying threat for me to be silent or be removed from synod. I feel incredibly let down as serious accusations have been made without providing any evidence. This is a clear example of overreach from the very top of the Church of England’s hierarchy.
“Any conservative orthodox Christian beliefs are being pushed out of the Church of England. If it is me now, who will it be next? I am taking this stand because I do not want anyone else to be treated as I have.
“I believe the CofE has been politically infiltrated by Stonewall and others. The promotion of Queer Theory, the acceptance of Pride flags, and now reporting any vocal opposition to the police, bares all the hallmarks of Stonewall and a repressive regime that wants to silence biblical truth at any cost.
“I don’t hate anyone, this is not about hate, it has always been about truth and bringing positive change to the CofE.
This is the introduction to a five part series by David Daniels on the Septuagint. This is subject is very important as the use of the Septuagint has affected many areas of study. Dr. James J. S. Johnson wrote in a 2019 Dean Burgon Society article that “There is a growing potential in Christian circles, especially within the creation science community for promoting and advocating the Greek Septuagint (“LXX”) version of the Old Testament, as if the LXX’s content was more reliable than the content of the providentially preserved Masoretic Text (MT) of the Old Testament.”
‘”God didn’t talk in person to His creation anymore after the Fall in Genesis 3.”
Hearing my professor say this, in his Unity of the Bible course, wouldn’t have been so shocking if it hadn’t happened in Fuller Seminary, which was once considered one of the most conservative seminaries in the country.
As we all know, God spoke directly to Cain in the very next chapter, Genesis 4! But this professor never changed his notes to match the Bible. His mind was made up.
The professor was Dan Fuller, son of the founder, Charles E. Fuller (whose preaching had led to Jack Chick’s salvation).
At Fuller, it wasn’t long before I found myself questioning everything I had believed about God and the Bible. We were frequently challenged to think differently and question our currently held beliefs. I think you will be quite surprised by what other Fuller Bible “scholars” believed.
This is Paul Jewett. He taught us that Adam didn’t find a companion until he looked and saw one of the apes. He said, and I quote, “That one over there. I think it’s something in the eyes.” So Dr. Jewett, this champion of women as pastors, taught that the first woman was literally an ape.
This is Dr. Ralph P. Martin. He changed the meaning of a couple of Greek words in Acts 1 to make it as if Luke and Acts were written in the 2nd century, contradicting the Bible, which says Luke was an eyewitness.
This is Dr. Lewis B. Smedes. Like a confrontational talk-show host, he would try to tear down each class member’s faith in the 10 Commandments. He’d arrange us in a circle and make up tear-jerking scenarios, where breaking a commandment seemed like the only thing you could do, to solve the problem he made up. And when someone finally emotionally broke down in class, he would say in front of the others, “So you don’t really believe in that commandment, do you?” He took pleasure in tearing people’s faith into shreds.
These are Drs. Hubbard, LaSor and Bush. They wrote an Old Testament Introduction text that said Ezekiel was a reformer who wanted to make a bigger Jerusalem temple. But alas, his plans didn’t work out. (That’s Ezekiel 40-48). They said that those chapters were simply Ezekiel’s wish-fulfillment dream, not from God. So they believed the Bible was written by man, not inspired by God.
Dr. Bob Schaper, my homiletics professor, said two things I still remember, almost word-for-word: “If we had a Polaroid camera, we would not have seen God forming man of the dust of the ground and breathing into his nostrils the breath of life.” And “If we had a Polaroid camera, we would not have seen Jesus ascend to heaven. ‘Heaven isn’t up.’” And nobody questioned it! Yet Acts 1 plainly says Jesus “went up” before their eyes, while they watched. But Dr. Schaper never let the facts get in the way of his beliefs.
Oh, and one more thing. All the professors here, as far as they had said and I was told, were evolutionists. They thought creationism was a fairy tale, and that Genesis 1-11 was just poetry.
This is who trained thousands of present pastors and professors when they went to Fuller seminary, as I did. And they are only the tip of the iceberg.
Listening to my professors talk, was like dissecting dead things. These professors were perfectly happy to pick up the dead and rotting corpses of supposedly ancient Bible texts, cut out what they wanted, throw the rest away, and sort of “Frankenstein-together” a Bible out of the rotten remains of whatever they found.
But God’s words never died. They are living! The Bible’s words are “quick” —and they are powerful. They change lives.
“For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12).
“Quick” means “alive.” God’s words are quick and powerful, not dead and powerless.
“Is not my word like as a fire? saith the LORD; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces?” (Jeremiah 23:29). God’s word burns and breaks whatever God wants burnt and broken. That’s powerful.
In short, God’s words are an extension of God. They are powerful, like God. They do what God wants, when God wants, how God wants. God’s words are alive. When I approach HIS Book I can find out what my heavenly Father thinks, what He wants, and what will make Him happy.
The Bible is not like any other book. It is God’s Book! But my professors treated their own words as if they were more important than God’s words. And they taught the sons and daughters entrusted to them to doubt the Bible and trust them.
There is a solution. You can inoculate your sons and daughters against these kinds of faith-destroying professors. Teach them to trust the preserved words of the living God, in English, the King James Bible. As far as these seminaries, “let the dead bury their dead” (Luke 9:60).’https://www.chick.com/information/article?id=Seminary-Professors
Whether you are a creationist or not ICR’s website is worth going to and seeing what is available. Hopefully after a visit you will visit often and perhaps if you are an evolutionist you will even begin to question evolution and just believe the Word of God.
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
