First Woman ‘Bishop’ Appointed in Ireland

20/09/2013

Anglicans in the British Isles have appointed their first woman ‘bishop.’

The Church of England is still embroiled in bitter controversy about this unscriptural, but highly PC innovation, but Anglicans in Scotland, Wales and Ireland have all already decided that women can be ‘bishops’. Now that next step has been taken with the appointment of Rev (sic) Pat Storey as ‘bishop’ of Meath and Kildare in the Republic of Ireland.

Are we surprised? Western Anglicanism is notoriously apostate, pays little attention to biblical fidelity, and has for some time now been ‘ordaining’ women ministers (priestesses?) contrary to the Scriptures. To elevate an unbiblical priestess to the unbiblical role of ‘diocesan bishop’ in an bible-forsaking church, is hardly any surprise.

St Paul wrote:

1st Timothy 2:9-12
In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety; not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array; But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works. Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection. But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.

1st Corinthians 14:34-35
Let your women keep silence in the churches: for it is not permitted unto them to speak; but they are commanded to be under obedience, as also saith the law. And if they will learn any thing, let them ask their husbands at home: for it is a shame for women to speak in the church.

It must be hard to be a godly woman, obeying the scriptures, and at least attempting to honour the Lord, and being a ‘bishop’ at the same time. Mrs Storey has asked that people will pray for her.

We will.
