Devilish debate on end for Church of England
AFP via Yahoo! News ^ | Thu Jan 10, 7:57 AM ET | AFP

Posted on 01/10/2008 10:50:12 AM PST by F15Eagle

LONDON (AFP) - Eyebrows were raised in the House of Commons on Thursday when a motion calling for the Church of England to be disestablished was listed with the number 666, symbol of the AntiChrist.

"This number is supposed to be the mark of the Devil. It looks as though God or the Devil have been moving in mysterious ways," said Bob Russell, a Liberal Democrat MP among those proposing the motion for debate.

"What is even stranger is that this motion was tabled last night when MPs were debating blasphemy," he added.

The motion calls for an end to the formal link between Church and State in England -- embodied in the monarch, Queen Elizabeth II, who is both head of state and head of the Church of England.

The number 666 is referred to in the Book of Revelations in the Bible: "Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast for it is the number of a man; and his number is six hundred, three score and six."

"It is is incredible that a motion like this should have, by chance, acquired this significant number," said Russell.

Under the rules of the House of Commons the motion by backbenchers has little chance of actually being debated in parliament.

The House of Lords was first, now this. The monarchy will be next. Then the country will no longer be the “United Kingdom, and Sharia will be the law of the land.

Agreed. And wish the book was referenced as the “Apocalypse or Revelation of Jesus Christ” ...

not “Revelations” —— aaaaaargh ... well, it’s minor but pervasive ...

Seven is the number of Creation, of Perfection, of Completeness, as in “seven days in the Creation of the Universe.” Six is one less than perfection, it falls short. We know that Revalations proposes a coming Anti-Christ, and a false Prophet before him, proclaiming him, and Satan behind it all; 6-6-6, mocking the true Trinity that seeks to complere Mankind through Grace.

Given the current state of much of the non-Third World Anglican communion (the Third World part, with the exception of “bishop” Tutu of South Africa, being very godly), this makes me wonder. Look at the ECUSA (Episcopagan Church of the USA, now called the Protestant Episcopagan Church of the USA), it is in such a sorry state that the merciful thing to do would be for the Almighty to torpedo it and put it out of its misery.

Yes, I agree Revelation chapter 13 indicates an unholy trinity in the End Times of

a false god: Satan
a false messiah: Antichrist
a false prophet: the “spiritual” leader/spokesman for the AC

It would be a great thing if the Church of England were to be disestablished. It’s a scandalous, gay-enabling church that doesn’t believe in God.

And why would Sharia be the law of the land? England is 3% Muslim, like America.

Tony Blair is to return to the front line of European politics in Paris this weekend - amid growing signs of a campaign to install him as the European Union’s first fully fledged president.

I agree that the CofE is scandalous. But when you destroy an institution that has been at the core of the history of a nation it is not so easily replaced. The UK is dismantling itself out of existence.

Blair ‘owes it to the Middle East’

Michael White and Deborah Summers
Thursday January 10, 2008
Guardian Unlimited

excerpts

The former British prime minister, who earlier announced that he is to become a part-time adviser to JP Morgan, one of Wall Street’s best-known banks, for an annual salary of about £500,000, is said to be most interested in the interface between faith and politics.

Blair was formally accepted into the Catholic church last month, and told today’s Financial Times that he planned to launch an inter-faith foundation this year.

Those who know him well have told Guardian Unlimited that Blair “feels he owes it to the Middle East, after Iraq, to stay with the region and do what he can to address the central question of Palestine”.

>> Flippancy is a really bad idea. <<

Aw, come on - this whole Anglican/ECUSA thing is so depressing, we need a good giggle every once in a while. Besides that, I think it would make a good start to a bible study class on that passage.

Don’t forget that the book of Daniel and St. John’s Apocalypse were written to give us hope when things seemed hopeless. May it please the Lord to give us all hope.

(actually it used to be called the Protestant Episcopal Church of the USA (abrev. ECUSA) now they presume to call themselves just “The Episcopal Church” or TEC.)

Those that call themselves “Anglican” in the USA now are orthodox Episcopalians who like you have left...

Yeah, I’ve heard that one for years. I’m wondering if it was born out of “The Omen” series because they kept England as a central role in that.

I don’t personally buy into that one but I think the Bible indicates we won’t know who it is before the appointed time (in Paul’s Epistles to Thessalonica).

But whomever he is, he honors a strange gold with precious tings and divides the land for gain (political/financial?) according to Daniel 11:37-39 and then eventually sits in the rebuilt temple showing the world and himself that he (thinks he is) is “god” (Paul’s epistle again).
