October 06 2017 By dvirtue Response from GAFCON Bishop Andy Lines to the Primates' Communique

The document does not criticise false teaching, but focuses on 'border crossing' as if it is more harmful. I take the long-established view of orthodox Anglicans across the world, that we cannot make an equivalence between Provinces who choose to abandon key aspects of biblical theology and ethics, tearing the fabric of the Communion and putting souls in danger, and those who respond to calls for help from faithful Anglicans within those Provinces.

October 06 2017 By dvirtue Anglican Communion News Service smears GAFCON and manipulates Archbishop of Canterbury

A few days ago, the ACNS carried an account of the Primates' Meeting in Canterbury Cathedral, entitled: 'Archbishop Welby "taken aback" by Las Vegas prayer criticism'. It was shocking in its content -- that, basically, conservative Anglican Primates were "put..

October 05 2017 By dvirtue Pundits politicizing and polarizing instead of praying about Las Vegas tragedy

CBS was quick to respond: "This individual [Hayley Geftman-Gold], who was with us for approximately one year, violated the standards of our company and is no longer an employee of CBS," the television network announced in a formal statement. "Her views as expressed on social media are deeply unacceptable to all of us at CBS. Our hearts go out to the victims in Las Vegas and their families."

October 05 2017 By dvirtue Secxit (or why I must leave the Scottish Episcopal Church)

The church has been here before. In 318 AD a priest called Arius led a movement that said Jesus was just a man, and this heresy became so powerful that at one point, in eastern Christendom, every church leader that said otherwise was in one small boat with Bishop Athanasius, sailing up the Nile.

October 04 2017 By dvirtue "An Act of Pure Evil" -- Searching for Meaning in Las Vegas

The shooting is already described as the worst in American history. The gunman, believed to be Stephen Paddock, killed himself as police prepared to storm his hotel room, from which he had aimed his deadly gunfire. The facts emerged slowly, and are still emerging. Paddock had no notable criminal record. He had worked for a defense contractor, owned two private aircraft, and was known to own guns. He was reported to like Las Vegas for its gambling and entertainment.

October 03 2017 By dvirtue Welby is deluded to think we're a kind society

A kinder society? Really? True, there's huge emphasis on being a nice person. There is far less racial prejudice than there was. The needs of disabled people are accommodated and their sporting achievements celebrated. After the Grenfell Tower fire there was a huge outpouring of generosity and kindness as people donated clothes and food.

When war broke out in Sudan in 1983 boys, "between 7 and 17 years of age who were separated from their families." About 30,000 boys fled the fighting.

September 30 2017 By dvirtue A Reflection on Women in Ministry

The foundation of this entire conversation needs to carry forward the fundamental truth that men and women together image God. One of the creational intentions for man and woman is to share in the dominion of God's creation. They are to be one. When women and men partner in ministry, great fruitfulness and joy are the beautiful result. They are living out God's design.

September 30 2017 By dvirtue LAMBETH AT 150 YEARS?

These are some of the questions that are in my mind, as we pass the 150th anniver-sary of the first Lambeth Conference, held from 24 to 27 September,1867. Archbishop Longley invited 150(sic) bishops, and 67 came. The Archbishop of York was vehement-ly opposed and did not come, nor any bishops from his province. The Dean of West-minster refused to allow a service to be held there.
