February 20 2017 By dvirtue The Radical Call to Go the Wrong Way'. Archbishop Welby's charge to General Synod

That is a very serious charge to make. Because if it is true, it challenges the authority of an ancient office and both the direction and integrity of the Church of England.


Where does this idea of inclusion come from? We don't find it in the historic orthodox voices of the Church. It is not in the Gospels, or the Fathers of the Church. It is not found in the authentic mystic visionaries or in charismatic revivals.

February 17 2017 By dvirtue Nothing has changed--the system is broken

You may remember the January, 2016 meeting of the Primates, or leading bishops of the several Churches of the Anglican Communion. The American Anglican Council has written at length about it.

February 17 2017 By dvirtue The Episcopal Church's Christian Witness

February 17 2017 By dvirtue Why Churches Should NOT Fear the "Nones"

Jones' claims that the refusal to bend to cultural trends and accept gay marriage (which he labels anti-gay) puts the evangelical portion of White Christian America at odds with younger Americans (132-137).

February 15 2017 By dvirtue CHURCH OF ENGLAND: Manipulative, domineering revisionists must be opposed, not appeased

In all of these cases and many more, when the people of God are being led astray by "hollow and deceptive philosophy" (Colossians 2:8), the sad but necessary requirement is not "peace, peace, where there is no peace" (Jeremiah 6:14) but conflict: Ephesians 6:10-18.
