Under the guise of “public safety,” organizations around the world are implementing radical rules requiring COVID-19 vaccines to continue to participate in any aspect of public society, including work, school, and even worship. Reformation Charlotte has reported on a number of apostate church-like organizations–including Tim Keller’s Redeemer Church–that are either segregating the unvaccinated or banning them completely from worship.
But perhaps, one of the most prominent churches now to withhold worship service from its congregants is Durham Cathedral.
The famous–or infamous, depending on how you look at it–cathedral is an Anglican church with a rich history. While the Anglican Church is notoriously apostate in modern times, there are few faithful congregations remaining. Despite this, the church will be withholding worship service from anyone over the age of 18 unless they can show proof of vaccination.
Archbishop Cranmer writes:
Durham Cathedral is dividing its flock into sheep and goats for Christmas. The Dean is setting the Covid-vaccinated sheep on his right hand, but the goats who lack an NHS Covid passport shall go on his left. Then shall he say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, and attend our service of lessons and carols for Advent as we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus at Christmas. For ye were unclean, but now ye carry an NHS Covid pass as proof of vaccination. Or ye suspected ye were unclean, yet can now prove that ye are not with a negative PCR or lateral flow test taken up to 48 hours before the event.
Then shall he say also unto the goats on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels. For ye have neither an NHS Covid pass nor a negative PCR or lateral flow test. Ye are ritually unclean and cannot attend our service of lessons and carols for Advent as we prepare to celebrate the birth of Jesus at Christmas. Nay, not even if ye wear a face covering. It is what Jesus would want.
It appears that Cranmer is correct in his observation that the sheep and the goats are being divided. It seems that many of these churches have become nothing more than agents of the state to carry out the will of their own god.
