February 26 2004 By virtueonline Learning to Live with an Audience of One - by Rev. Bill Dickson

But I wonder if we have given adequate consideration to the critical importance of the audience of our lives. Before whom are we really living our lives? Who is the true audience before whom our time on the stage of life is performed? In our gospel text for today Jesus suggests there are but two options, and only one is acceptable to those who would be his disciples.

February 26 2004 By virtueonline Cheap Grace - by Dietrich Bonhoeffer

Cheap grace is the preaching of forgiveness without requiring repentance, baptism without church discipline, Communion without confession, absolution without personal confession. Cheap grace is grace without discipleship, grace without the Cross, grace without Jesus Christ, living and incarnate.

February 25 2004 By virtueonline "His Blood Be Upon Us": Understanding What We See in the Passion of the Christ

What compounds the problem, of course, is that Jesus was no ordinary criminal; in fact, no ordinary man, and no criminal at all. At least, that is what we Christians believe. What's more, we believe it passionately, because the message of salvation through Christ goes deeper in us than any passion we have. "You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free," Jesus said (John 8:32).

When the Apostle says, "Give yourself wholly to these things," he seems to look at the "things" of which he had been speaking in the preceding verses, beginning with the words "Set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity."

February 13 2004 By virtueonline Not Corrupting the Word - by J. C. Ryle

But there are occasions when true humility is to be seen, not so much in loud professions of our weakness, as in forgetting ourselves altogether. I desire to forget self at this time, in turning my attention to this portion of Scripture. If I say little about my own sense of insufficiency, do me the justice to believe, that it is not because I am not well aware of it.

February 07 2004 By virtueonline "Can Classical Anglican Comprehensiveness be Reconstructed" by Chris Seitz

It is necessary to pose the issue this way, because the ECUSA is a 2 million person denomination within a complex welter of denominated Christian groupings, vastly overshadowed by Roman Catholic, Baptist, and Evangelical churches, which might themselves be said to correspond in some rough ways to groupings internal to the comprehensiveness which is British Anglicanism.

February 07 2004 By virtueonline LAST SIGNAL TO THE CARPATHIA by Dean Paul Zahl

Now, the tendency in theological discussions of our current problem is to punt them over to the adjoining field of ecclesiology.

February 01 2004 By virtueonline A Conversation with Bishop Allison on the Church - by Dr. Ephraim Radner

Bishop Allison was responding, in part, to a lecture I gave several
weeks ago at an Anglican Communion Institute conference in Charleston.
In general it seems that Bp. Allison is concerned that I am promoting a
kind of weak resistance to heresy in our church, because I have called
such resistance to be accountable to strict standards of humility,
order, and – as far as possible! – unity. This has led him to label my
