Anglican Church Envoy to Vatican Does not Believe in Resurrection

Last week, John Shepherd was appointed as the interim director of the Anglican Centre in Rome. He will act as the de facto ambassador for Justin Welby’s Church of England, and other Anglican churches.

When he was Dean of Perth Cathedral, Australia, Shepherd claimed in his 2008 Easter sermon (video below),

“It’s important for Christians to be set free from the idea that the resurrection was an extraordinary physical event, which restored to life Jesus’s original earthly body. The resurrection of Jesus ought not to be seen in physical terms, but as a new spiritual reality.”

Shepherd succeeds Bernard Ntahoturi, who stood down following accusations of sexual misconduct.

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.

David Jenkins is now deceased...... Francis might declare him a Saint.
Anglicans have no bishops. They are not in the apostle succession.

The Bergoglian ecclesial community is a clone of the Episcopalian/Anglican ecclesial communities -- liberal, LGBT, socialist, feminist, moonbat crazy.

are we being led astray and forgetting God's Countenance, forgetting our roots and insulting the Glory of God by denying Him the fact that He is the Mighty One and He can take away life and give life to anyone He wants ... even the pile of dirt that we are ...
Heretical Statement. No Wisdom in it, just a false sense of intelligence.
