African Angli­can arch­bish­ops meet in Kenya over be­liefs and gay mar­riage

The Star (Kenya) - - Politics Ministries -

Some 28 Angli­can bish­ops from five African coun­tries re­cently un­der­took a one-week train­ing in Kenya on how to counter the wa­ter­ing down of the Church’s be­liefs. The train­ing was held un­der the aus­pices of the Global Angli­can Fu­ture Con­fer­ence, which seeks to up­hold the true teach­ings of the Chris­tian faith. It was held at the Brack­en­hurst Con­fer­ence Cen­tre, Tigoni. For­mer Arch­bishop Eliud Wabukala warned his col­leagues to watch out as the break­away group is out to get mem­bers, es­pe­cially in re­la­tion to gay mar­riages. Arch­bishop Nicholas Okoh from Nige­ria said that since 2008, it has be­come clear that the dan­ger the Church faces is not so much from out­right false teach­ers, “but the di­vi­sion and dis­trac­tion which comes when those who claim to be ortho­dox want us to be in ‘shared con­ver­sa­tions’ and meet for ‘con­tin­ued Ind­aba’ with those who are teach­ing a false gospel”.
