True Christians would not lie to cover up for their criminal negligence and failures leading up to the attacks of the 11th September 2001, which killed thousands of innocents.
True Christians would not ignore other countries human rights abuses, in order to get their support for a so called "war on terror".
True Christians would not lie, and decieve their people into believing that another nation posed a "clear and present danger" in order to initiate an attack on another nation which would kill innocent people.
True Christians would not ignore torture and abuse, and would not attempt to make excuses for the scumbags who carry out that torture and abuse, and those who ordered people to torture and abuse captives.
True Christians would not argue about legal niceties, or their role in helping their own countrymen, women and children following a natural disaster. They would offer their help unconditionally.
True Christians would not deny help for those in need.
True Christians would speak out against those who speak with a forked tongue. When those who claim to be Christians don't act in a Christian manner, then Christian leaders must speak out. Church of England Bishops have called on Christian leaders to speak out and publicly apologise for the Iraq war. It's long past time for true Christians to speak up.
I'm sorry we didn't kick their butts earlier.
True Christians don't post and run...off with sparks flyin outta their booty.
And just WHO is going to decide if I'm a true Christian?

Is any screen name suitable when registering on this forum?
Try again in a few years and remember, if it smells bad, don't eat it.
Sounds very much ike what the terrorists say about Muslims that don't believe the way they do.
So I am not a true Christian if I don't see the sworld thru your "Socialist One World Government" eyes.
Oh, my mistake. You're stepping on several thousand serving in Iraq as we speak.
A true Christian would not post such trash knowing they are misleading the readers of this post.
Here kitty kitty
Forked tongue, I say you're a moron.
I know that I admire any group that interrupts their important apostacy and buggery long enough to give moral support to Islamic extremists.
Trolling for a zot ping.
True Christians understand the business of the church is to bring people to Christ. I don't recall Paul speaking out against the Roman empire or rallying a Roman uprising. Perhaps its time for the Church of England to refocus.
What makes you think everyone on FR is Christian?
I think we have a few pagans on here, too.
Some trolls are more obnoxious than others. You're right up there, baby.
BTW, the COE has about as much consistency and moral authority as the Church of Scientology in my book. They are my "Mother Church", but Mama has gone a little bit batty, and we're keeping her in the attic...
I guess you guys are off the hook, then. Must be nice.
In 1953, Archbishop of Canterbury William Temple, in his book Nature and God, said, ...there is no such thing as revealed truth.
In 1960, Episcopalian Bishop James Pike said the doctrine of the Trinity is outdated, incomprehensible and nonessential (The Christian Century, Dec. 21, 1960). (Billy Graham was a guest at Pikes ordination on May 15, 1958 and praised the liberal bishop in glowing terms. Nine days later, Graham invited Pike to sit on the platform during his evangelistic crusade in San Francisco and had him lead in prayer. On Dec. 4, 1960, Graham spoke in Pikes pulpit at Grace Cathedral in San Francisco.)
In 1961, Archbishop of Canterbury Michael Ramsey said, ... heaven is not a place for Christians only. ... I expect to see many present day atheists there (London Daily Mail, Oct. 2, 1961). That same year, Bishop James Pike called the virgin birth of Christ a primitive myth and said that Joseph was probably Jesus real father (Redbook magazine, August 1961). He also said that Adam and Eve, the Garden of Eden, heaven, and hell are myths. (Billy Graham invited Ramsey to the platform during his 1975 crusade in Brazil and allowed him to speak to the crowd. Fundamental Evangelistic Association News & Views, May-June 1975)
In 1963, Episcopal theologian Paul van Buren started the God-is-dead movement with the publication of his book The Secular Meaning of the Gospel. That same year, Anglican Bishop John Robinson said in his book Honest to God, The whole scheme of a supernatural being coming down from heaven to save mankind from sin ... is frankly incredible to man come of age.
In 1967, after heresy charges were brought against Bishop James Pike, the Episcopal Church in America adopted a resolution declaring that all heresy was out of date. That year, Canon Hugh Montifiore of Cambridge Universitys main church said, Jesus might have been a homosexual (Christianity Today, Aug. 18, 1967). (Montifiore was the advisor for the Cambridge Billy Graham Television Crusade.)
In 1968, the Church of Englands Lambeth Conference voted that Anglican clergy are no longer required to agree to the denominations 39 articles of faith.
In 1976, John Spong was ordained as the bishop of the Episcopal diocese of Newark, New Jersey, even though he denied practically every doctrine of the Christian faith.
In 1978, Anglican Bishop Desmond Tutu of South Africa said the Holy Spirit shines through Mahatma Gandhi, who is a Hindu (St. Albans Cathedral, Pretoria, South Africa, Nov. 23, 1978).
In 1980, Tutu said, It may be that Jesus was an illegitimate son (Cape Times, Oct. 24, 1980).
In 1982 Archbishop of Canterbury Robert Runcie said he was an agnostic as to why Jesus suffered on the cross (Sunday Times Weekly Review, London, April 11, 1982). That same year, Episcopal Bishop John Spong, writing in the Christian Century (Jan. 6-13, 1982), condemned traditional evangelistic and missionary endeavors and said that biblical absolutism is a vice. (Billy Graham was one of the honored guests at Runcies ordination in March 1980, and Graham spoke highly of the liberal archbishop during his evangelistic crusades in England in 1984 and 1989.)
In 1984, David Jenkins, Anglican Bishop of Durham, described Christs resurrection as a conjuring trick with bones (English Bishop Calls Christs Resurrection Conjuring Trick, AP, St. Louis Post Dispatch, Oct. 28, 1984). Jenkins also said, The Christian is not bound up with freak biology or corpses getting up and walking around and You dont have to believe in the virgin birth. (On July 9, 1984, three days after Jenkins was consecrated bishop, lightning struck his cathedral and caused extensive damage. A spokesman for the fire brigade said that though the roof was fully wired with lightning rods, none of them worked that morning; the smoke detectors in the ceiling did not go off, even though they were tested only a month before; and there was no thunder accompanying the lightning. EP News Service, Dec. 21, 1984).
In 1984, the Associated Press reported that only 20 of 31 Church of England bishops polled insisted that Christians must accept Jesus as both God and man.
In 1985, the Jesus Seminar was founded with the help of Episcopalians, including Marcus Borg of Oregon State University. The Seminar claims that Jesus spoke only about 20% of the things attributed to him in the New Testament and that the Jesus described in the Bible is largely a fiction. They claim he wasnt born of a virgin, didnt walk on the water, didnt rise from bodily the dead, and had no intention of starting a new Christian religion. They also claim that there was no Jewish trial of Jesus before the crucifixion and the Jewish crowd did not participate in his condemnation.
In 1986, Anglican Bishop David Jenkins got a standing ovation from the general synod of the Church of England when he defended his doubts about the virgin birth and bodily resurrection of Christ (Associated Press, July 7, 1986). Jenkins called the God of the Bible a cultic idol (Ecumenical Press Service, July 16-21, 1986).
In 1987, a panel of seven Episcopal bishops dismissed heresy charges against Bishop John Spong.
In 1988, Spong published his book Living in Sin: A Bishop Rethinks Human Sexuality. He said, The time has surely come not just to tolerate, or even to accept, but to celebrate and welcome the presence among us of our gay and lesbian fellow human beings (p. 199). That year Spong visited a Buddhist temple and said, As the smell of incense filled the air, I knelt before three images of the Buddha, feeling that the smoke could carry my prayers heavenward. It was for me a holy moment for I was certain that I was kneeling on holy ground (A Dialogue in a Buddhist Temple, John Spong, The Voice, Jan. 1989).
In January 1989, a committee composed of five Episcopal bishops unanimously dismissed a second set of heresy charges that had been brought against Bishop John Spong. Toward the end of that year, Spong ordained the first openly practicing homosexual to the Episcopal priesthood. The man, Robert Williams, was diagnosed with AIDS less than two years later.
In November 1991, John Spong conducted a seminar in Bangor, Pennsylvania, entitled Exorcising Fundamentalism, Sexual Phobias and Other Demons.
In 1993, a survey of nearly 20,000 Episcopalians showed that seventy percent believed faithful Christians can be sexually active gays and lesbians (Christian News, Nov. 1, 1993). Seventy-five percent approved of living with someone of the opposite sex without marriage.
In 1994, it was reported by the Sunday Times (July 31) in London that at least 100 Anglican priests are atheists who do not believe in an external, supernatural God.
In 1996, Archbishop of Canterbury George Carey lashed out at fundamentalists who place the Bible above and beyond human inquiry (Christian News, Dec. 9, 1996). That same year, the doctrinal commission of the Church of England said hell is not a place of fire and eternal torment. And Episcopal Bishop John Spong wrote in his paper that the image of God in the Bible is no longer operative (ENI, Dec. 6, 1996).
In 1997, a survey found that 31% of Anglican vicars in England do not believe in the virgin birth (Alliance Life, March 12, 1997). Actually that figure would probably have been much higher had the survey attempted to discover the number of vicars who believe in the virgin birth only in a figurative manner.
In his 1991 book Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism, Episcopal Bishop John Spong said the apostle Paul was a self hating, repressed homosexual. That year, Spong ordained another homosexual priest, Barry Stopfel. Lesbian Episcopal priest Carter Heyward delivered the ordination sermon. When Stopfels male lover was introduced, the audience applauded.
In 1998 Episcopalian Bishop John Spong said, I would choose to loathe rather than to worship a deity who required the sacrifice of his son (Christianity Today, June 15, 1998). That same year, retiring Episcopal Presiding Bishop Edmond Browning said, It is time to move past using literalistic readings of the Bible to create prejudices against our gay and lesbian brothers and sisters (Calvary Contender, May 1, 1998).
In 2002, Richard Harries, Anglican Bishop of Oxford, said Christians should pray to God the Mother (The Times, Nov. 3, 2002). That same year, retired Bishop Spong proposed a new Christianity, which must be able to incorporate all of our reality. It must be able to allow God and Satan to come together in each of us. ... It must unite Christ with Antichrist, Jesus with Judas, male with female, heterosexual with homosexual (World, July 8, 2002).
In April 2003, Episcopalian bishop Charles Bennison said that Jesus Christ was a sinner (Worthy News, April 14, 2003).
On June 7, 2003, the Diocese of New Hampshire elected the first openly homosexual bishop in the history of the Episcopal Church USA. The election must be confirmed by the General Convention, which meets in Minneapolis in July. Thirteen years ago the newly elected bishop, V. Gene Robinson, broke his marriage vows when he left his wife and two young daughters and moved in with his male partner. In a speech in April 29, 2000, the day before a homosexual march in Washington, D.C., Robinson said: ... we are worthy to hold our heads high as gay folk NOT because weve merely decided we are worthy, but because God has proclaimed it so. That we are loved beyond our wildest imagining by a God who made us the way we are and proclaimed it good. We proclaim today that we too read our Bibles, and through the voices of its many witnesses, we hear Gods voice NOT saying You are an abomination, but rather, You are my beloved. We lay an equal claim to a savior who loves us as we are and who died to save us from our manifold sins and wickedness, which does NOT include our being gay. And we come here today, laying claim to our full membership -- our FULL membership -- in the Body of Christ.
We're putting you on the last train to Zotsville. Buh bye!
Anglicans have not a clue as to what defines a true Christian. Pray for them.
True Christians don't consecrate homosexuals.
Freepers stand a force protection watch at one of the .50-caliber machine gun mounts
You wouldn't recognize a TRUE CHRISTIAN if one walked up to you and slapped that big head of yours with a BIBLE. Do yourself a favor and get off of that soap box you have placed yourself and get a clue.
Excellent summary post from you.
"Quoting from a survey carried out in 2002 of what the Church of England believed in, he said just 76 per cent of clergy believed Jesus Christ died to take away the sins of the world, 68 per cent believed Jesus rose physically from the dead and 53 per cent believed faith in Jesus was the only way they could be saved. Among women clergy, the figures came in at about 10 per cent lower in each category."
What a bunch of apostates. And these were things the clergy admitted to. These numbers are probably much higher than reality.
Tell it to St. Thomas Aquinas.
VISUAL...AAHHH MY EYES!!!! : )
The secular humanist gospel = An abomination to God. Marxism sprinkled with passivism.
First a-holes to be beheaded when the RELIGION OF PEACE takes over! Hope they don't mind a clean slice!
I just copied it from a really fundi-baptist website. I don't agree with a lot they say(like why the hating on Graham) but most of the info looks good.
The dhimmi church has spoken.
