The Church of England was originally part of the Roman Catholic Church, and it retained its clergy and hierarchy from its Catholic days. The reader will recall that King Henry VII desired the privilege of divorce in order to marry Anne Boleyn. Henry VII went so far as to force the clergy of his realm on Jan.,1531 to declare him "supreme head" of Christ's Church in England. In 1535 he declared himself "in terra supremum caput Anglicanae ecclesiae"—that is in Latin "supreme head on earth of the English Church".
That is the King/Priest concept. Thomas Cromwell who believed in that concept was also a close co-worker with Henry VII, and his decendent Oliver is responsible for the Jews coming to England and for Anglo-lsraelism becoming so prominant in the English Isles. The Church of England did make changes after their separation from Rome, but they were principally changes based on humanism and the Reformed movement rather than Luther's ideas.1 After the political separation of the Church of England from the Catholic Church, many of the problems that had plagued the church during its years under Rome's authority continued and even grew. For instance, the Church of England became notorious for the practice called Pluralism— that is where a clergyman will hold several church offices in order to draw pay from each, and yet the clergyman would not perform the function of but one office.2 When the separation with Rome occured, and for many years afterward, the clergy in the Anglican Church were often poorly educated and had poor morals.3
TIES TO MASONRY & BRITISH-ISRAELISM
The idea of British-Israelism was so popular with the Anglican Church that many associate the two together. The form of British-lsraelism that the Anglican Church practices is perverse in that it elevates the Askenazim Jews to central position in the affairs of mankind, which God never promised them.
King Alfred the Great (who reigned from 871 to 899) was positive he was fiftieth in direct descent from Adam. King James I, who was the first to call England "Great Britain", had written on the gates to his throne Jer 17:25, "Then shall enter into the gates of the city, kings and princes sitting upon the throne of David." The Royalty of England, who have been leaders in British Freemasonry, have hinted off and on that they believe that they are descendents of the House of David. (A letter requesting clarification from the British Queen on this point has gone unanswered.) Whether the Royalty believes it or not, various researchers are saying they are descendents.4 On the books, technically the British royalty has immense powers, but the today's traditional way of handling things gives them very limited power. It is not inconceivable that they might someday regain in reality the power that is still on the books.
Prince Charles is a New Ager,5 and when he visited the Pope in 1985 he attempted unsuccessfully to share the mass with the pope.6
The Anglican church is also so close to Masonry, the Anglican and Episcopal churches are really extensions of Freemasonry.
One scholar on Freemasonry describes the Church of England as paralyzed against Freemasonry.7 Church officials (Anglicans and Presbyterians) have lost their jobs because they criticized Freemasonry,8 so it is something that in 1987 the Masons ruling the Church of England allowed a group of Anglican priests called The Working Group established by the Standing Committee of the General Synod of the Church of England to publish a report questioning the compatibility of Freemasonry and the Church. The report says it "points to a number of very fundamental reasons to question the compatibility of Freemasonry with Christianity."9 Even though this is a step in the right direction, the report poses no threat to the Masonic power structure.
Earlier in Chap. 2.1 lists of Anglican, and Episcopal priests and bishops is given. This is not a blanket condemnation of the Episcopal church, nor can the motives of these men be questioned. However, to give documentation on how powerful Masonry and its daughter the New Age movement are in the Anglican/Episcopal church this data is given. Are we not to judge a tree by its fruit? Some of the top leaders of the New Age have come out of the Episcopal church, and now in their pulpits some of the most antiChristian, and some of the most perverted people are preaching.
