African Anglicans should not be deceived by the supportive noises from Western liberals.

The true opinion of Western Anglican liberals towards two thirds' world biblical orthodoxy came out at the Lambeth 1998 Conference. African Anglicans' commitment to biblical orthodoxy on Christian faith and morals is 'pre-scientific' and 'primitive'.

The former Anglican Bishop of Newark in the United States, Dr John Spong, spoke for them all when he denounced you for bigotry over Lambeth Resolution 1.10.

The reality is that the theological liberals dominating the ecclesiastical hierarchy in Western Anglican Provinces do not want your passionate biblical orthodoxy on their cultivated elitist lawns.

If they were genuinely affronted by Islam, then they would proclaim the supremacy and uniqueness of Christ in their own Provinces and wholeheartedly oppose Sharia Law.

If they were genuinely impressed by your biblical orthodoxy, then they would not promote the 1960s' feminist agenda in their own Provinces.

If they were genuinely impressed by your church growth, then they would not promote the critical attitudes towards the Bible that undermine the gospel and displease God.

Western political correctness is in a dilemma over Africa and that is reflected in liberal Anglican attitudes towards you. You are perceived to be the victims of white Western imperialism and financial exploitation. But they do not like many of your attitudes.

When you are victimised, then the supportive noises became louder but such noises do not negate the fact that, fundamentally, they dislike your biblical orthodoxy.

Also, because many of your countries are in the Commonwealth, institutional church liberals in the English hierarchy do not want to risk upsetting the Queen by being too rude about you.

So please keep on contending for the biblical gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ against theological liberalism in the Anglican Communion. If you allow revisionism any house room whatsoever, then it will became a parasitic tapeworm within you and sap the biblical vigour of your churches.


  1. Having recently met Archbishop Kwashi of Jos Nigeria and having listened to him give a sermon and then a talk on "mission," I was deeply moved by the power of his faith. At the same time, I realized that such a preacher would probably never be asked to give a sermon in our liberal parish by our liberal bishop. I think such passion for Christ scares the bejeezus out of moderate and liberal pewsitters, and probably clergy as well. Imagine what would happen if the Church were to taste of that African Spirit?

    "Imagine what would happen if the Church were to taste of that African Spirit?"

    It would turn the world upside down! (Acts 17 verse 6)
    Our country will only be brought back to God when the Church itself recognises its weakness and poverty and trusts only in the power of the Holy Spirit of God. This Lent the messages to the 7 churches in Revelation chapters 2 and 3 will make salutary reading.

    Blessings on all who preach and teach the Word.
