Posts Tagged Archbishop of Wales Easter sermon
Days before Easter 2018, the Archbishop of Wales, John Davies made some ridiculous claims that no Archbishop has any business in making.
In an interview the Archbishop of Wales expressed his doubts concerning the bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ. Stating ‘it is terribly hard for people to grasp the idea of a bodily resurrection‘ and that he doesn’t think any of ‘us’ actually knows what happened.
So why does he claim to be a Christian?
The Bible is clear that the Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the core of the Faith and if His resurrection was not physical but spiritual, or indeed never happened, then our faith is useless and we are still in our sin (1 Corinthians 15: 12-18). The Scriptures clearly teach that Jesus’ resurrection was a bodily as He Himself said “Behold My hands and My feet, that it is I Myself. Handle Me and see, for a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see I have.” (Luke 24: 39). The resurrected Jesus also ate fish which spirits cannot do (Luke 24: 41-43)
The resurrected Jesus still had the nail holes in His hands and the Spear hole in His side (John 20: 27)
If John Davies fails to believe these things then why is he an Archbishop?
If a so-called Christian Bishop has such beliefs within him, then it is merely evidence that he is either not a true Christian or he is an apostate or, he has failed to abide in the doctrine of Christ (2 John 1: 9-11).
Doubts about the true meaning of certain Scriptures and doctrines, which are not salvation issues, are acceptable but when it comes to the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, their is no doubt whatsoever in any mind that has been transformed.
Clearly the Bishop has no right to hold that title and would be better to resign and express his ideas in a university or college, but not as a practising Bishop.
Fellow Christians, please pray for the Church of Wales.
