The Church of England was braced for a fresh row today after a cathedral announced plans to host a ‘new age’ festival.
The event – featuring tarot card readers, crystal healers, dream interpretation, and a fire-breathing vicar – is to be held in Manchester Cathedral in May.
But the move is certain to anger traditionalists, who feel the Church has already strayed too far from tradition.
Hundreds have already defected to the Roman Catholic Church after deep splits over the ordination of gay and women priests.
Anglican leaders in Manchester decided to hold the festival in the historic cathedral in a bid to embrace alternative forms of Christianity.
Fortune tellers, meditation experts and traditional healers will fill the pews during the day-long festival. The Bishop of Manchester, Rt Rev Nigel McCulloch, said he wanted to celebrate ‘all forms of spirituality’.
But Bishop Nigel insisted the unconventional activities due to take place in Manchester Cathedral were not incompatible with Christian belief.
He said: ‘The event is a chance to discover and explore old and new Christian spiritual traditions from living in a community to praying with icons, from healing to bead-making, from Franciscan spirituality to contemporary music and movement.

With each day that passes by, mankind digs deeper and deeper into the evil pit and lies created by the devil. That we are in the end times is obvious, by people leaning closer to doctrines taught by deceiving spirits.
Jesus Christ warned us that “deceivng doctrines” this would be one of the end of age signs, and instead of mankind heeding Christ’s warning they continue to follow the ” temporary god” of this world which is satan.
II Timothy 3:1-5,7
“But realize this, that in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of god; holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power; always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”
The Word of God clearly tells us that these are lying prophets/teachers. It is a delusion of their own mind, their lying hearts that deceive.
How long will this continue in the hearts of these lying prophets, who prophesy the delusions of their own minds?
Those that who do not repent from their sins, and continue to following lying doctrines, instead of following Jesus Christ The Only King and Savior will end up punished for eternity. It is not too late to repent, and turn to Christ.
8 But cowards who turn away from me, and unbelievers, and the corrupt, and murderers, and the immoral, and those who practice witchcraft, and idol worshipers, and all liars — their doom is in the lake that burns with fire and sulfur. This is the second death.”
