Anglican head Rowan Williams has bowed down before the Pope, but has not yet followed five of his Bishops back towards full union with the false and corrupt Vatican statehood.
Bishop Keith Newton of Richborough will resign as Anglical bishop on December 31st.
“I will, in due course, be received into full communion with the Catholic Church and join the Ordinariate when one is erected in England, which I hope will happen early next year.”
Pope Benedict established the proposed Anglican Ordinariate, a special jurisdiction within the Catholic Church, in his apostolic constitution “Anglicanorum Coetibus.”
Bishop Newton explained that although the issue of the ordination of women as Anglican bishops has been an important factor in his decision, it is “not the most significant.”
Noting the “surprise” of the Pope’s action on Anglican-Catholic relations, he said that most Anglicans have prayed for union with the Catholic Church.
However, this union has seemed less likely because of “the new difficulties concerning the ordination of women and other doctrinal and moral issues affecting the Anglican Communion.”
“Although we must still pray for sacramental and ecclesial unity between our Churches that now seems a much more distant hope,” Bishop Newton said.
The ordinariates provide an opportunity for “visible unity” and Anglicans are able to retain “what is best in our own tradition which will enrich the Universal Church.”
Converting Anglican bishop says papal action changed the landscape.
“I hope you will understand that I am not taking this step in faith for negative reasons about problems in the Church of England but for positive reasons in response to our Lord’s prayer the night before he died the ‘they may all be one’,” the bishop continued.
While expressing sympathy with the position that Anglicans with traditional views need leadership at a “vital” time, he rejected the example of a leader who should “stay to the bitter end like the captain of a sinking ship.”
Rather, he noted the scriptural image of the shepherd, who must lead his flock from the front rather than follow it from behind.
“This is what I hope I am doing. I am leading the way and I hope and pray that many of you will follow me in the months and the years ahead,” he explained.
Bishop Newton acknowledged those who want to remain in the Church of England, but he said he could not continue to be their bishop “with any integrity” and cannot provide the episcopal leadership they deserve.
“You need a new Bishop of Richborough who has the same vision as you have and one for whom a solution in the Church of England is a priority. My priority is union with the Universal Church,” he added.
If the Pope is an antichrist and Rome a part of Mysterious Babylon, than Anglican Bishop Keith Newton is a harlot returning home to his “Mother Church”.
Bishop Newton is not alone. All the so-called mainline Churches are on their way back to union with the Vatican. On the way there will also be spiritual whores from all kind of denominations, also from the Pentecostal camp.
The Word of Faith movement and worshipers of miracles and wonders are on the same path towards destruction. Men like Benny Hinn and Ulf Ekman is leading this procession back towards union with the Church of Rome.
