Anglican Reality Check

Jun 23, 2019 by

from GAFCON:

Why does Gafcon exist? What are the problems within the Anglican Communion? What is the Lambeth Conference? 

If you’ve ever wondered why Gafcon started on 29th June 2008 then this ‘Anglican Reality Check’ timeline (below) will help to answer those questions above. The timeline shows some of the key events and the impact of liberal and revisionist teaching in the Anglican Communion over the last 21 years. The authority of the bible has been set aside by some, but this led to the birth of Gafcon and its growth throughout the world.

First, let’s set the scene…

This ‘Anglican Reality Check’  sets out the facts in an easily accessible way to empower faithful Anglicans. It reveals how predominantly Western church leaders have relentlessly sought to undermine the authority of Scripture and its teaching on marriage and sexuality  as reaffirmed by the vast majority of the world’s Anglican bishops at the 1998 Lambeth Conference.

The fact that the 2020 Lambeth Conference is being held two years later than expected and is already marked by controversy and confusion is symptomatic of the deep and continuing crisis caused by this rejection of biblical authority in the Communion. Although Lambeth 2020 will no doubt retain a superficial continuity with previous conferences, the history set out here demonstrates that it is very likely to represent a fundamental shift from the Anglicanism of the 1998 Lambeth Conference. The false teaching overwhelmingly rejected 22 years previously seems set to be institutionalised as an acceptable option and it will become even clearer that the true continuation of the Anglicanism of the 1998 Lambeth Conference is the Gafcon movement which since 2008 has established itself as the voice of global orthodoxy in the Anglican Communion.
