GAFCON Chairman’s March 2017 letter

Mar 7, 2017 by

In his latest message, Archbishop Nicholas Okoh reflects on a letter sent by the Archbishops of Canterbury and York, following the Church of England’s General Synod vote not to ‘take note’ of a recent report on marriage and same sex relationships,

The vote, says the GAFCON chairman, ‘could have been an opportunity to reaffirm apostolic teaching on marriage and sexuality, but the Archbishops’ talk of ‘radical inclusion’ and a ’21st century understanding’ has given great encouragement to those who want to bring the Church of England into line with the values of secular society.’

‘In these troubled times’, says the Archbishop, ‘it is good to recover the biblical perspective that ‘here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come’ (Hebrews 13:14). Our defining centre is not a place, but a person, the Lord Jesus Christ and our ultimate authority is not a human institution, but the Word of God.’

Yours in Christ
