Toronto’s New Bishop

Toronto’s New Bishop

Not the Suffragan Bishop of Toronto The Diocese of Toronto, in the Anglican Church of Canada (ACoC), has a new Suffragan Bishop in the person of Kevin Robertson. Following his election in September, Robertson said this, from the chancel steps of St. Paul’s, Bloor Street: “I’m very overwhelmed, I didn’t really expect to be standing [...]

May They all be One

May They all be One

With apologies to the blind, it should be apparent to all Christians that the Faith, and the Church, is under attack. On the one hand, Muslims are waging genocidal Jihad against Christian communities, especially in the Middle East, and on the other, aggressive secularism is working to erode Christian culture in the West. In this context, [...]

Religious Freedom Under Attack

Religious Freedom Under Attack

By Michael Heidt. Sometime this summer, possibly in late June, the U.S. Supreme Court will decide whether same-sex marriage is a constitutional right. To quote a former Secretary of State, what difference does it make, if the Justices rule that it is? If you’re a Christian business owner like the Kleins in Oregon, the answer is $135,000 worth [...]

Stop the Jihad

Stop the Jihad

On Sunday, February 15, the Islamic State terror group, ISIS, released a video showing 21 Coptic Christians being beheaded on a beach in Libya. This was entitled, “A Message Signed With Blood To The Nation Of The Cross.” What was the content of the message? A masked holy warrior wasn’t slow to tell us: “All praise is due to Allah the [...]

Go Green?

Go Green?

If you feel unsettled at the prospect of large groups of privileged people from the developed world spending vast sums of money and fossil fuel to listen to pep talks on climate change activism, then prepare to be dismayed. The Episcopal Church just spent a whopping $500,000 flying its House of Bishops to Taipei, for their fall meeting. To what [...]

Don’t Worship the Devil

Don’t Worship the Devil

  Typical Harvard Worship It’s long been said that Harvard, one of America’s most prestigious schools, is little more than Satan’s Vatican, albeit better funded. (Harvard’s operating budget is $3.7 billion as opposed to the Vatican’s paltry $300 million) With that in mind, it should come as no surprise to learn that the [...]

The Seventh Council

The Seventh Council

  There have been few, if any, more striking images this year from a Christian perspective than the spectacle of Orthodox monks standing between police and protesters in the streets of Kiev. On January 21, Fr. Gabriel, Fr. Melchisedek, and Fr. Ephraim from the Kiev-Caves Lavra (monastery), walked onto Kiev’s Grushevsky Street and placed [...]

Islam and the Big Lie

Islam and the Big Lie

  By Michael Heidt "In the primitive simplicity of their minds they more readily fall victims to the big lie than the small lie," Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf.   When it comes to Islam, the governments and media of the Western world have shown a strange willingness to lift the big lie principle out of the mad Fuhrer's propaganda [...]

From the Editor

From the Editor

By Fr. Michael Heidt   Sadly, due to the constraints of budget and space, we were unable to publish the several letters sent to Forward in Christ since the last summer issue. Two concerns were of note; firstly, that this magazine was overly focused on Roman Catholicism in general and the Ordinariate for Anglican converts in [...]

Stand Up and be Counted

Stand Up and be Counted

Like it or not, Anglicans claim to be catholic Christians. Every Sunday we proclaim that we believe in a Church which is “One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic.” In doing so we are not pledging allegiance to a vague universality but to what Chesterton referred to as The Thing, a clearly identifiable entity, with a common set of beliefs and [...]
