June 19 2017 By dvirtue LIMA, Peru: New Anglican Bishop Affirms the Mercy of God

"We are in Peru, which is strongly Roman Catholic and many say we look like the Roman Catholic Church and others say we are not. We have the best of both worlds. As an Anglican Church, we profess the mercy of God. In our human experience here, we have not experienced a very merciful Church (or God) and maybe this has confused people.

June 15 2017 By dvirtue GAFCON Chairman Clashes with Archbishop Welby over Boundary Crossing

Welby wrote to the GAFCON Archbishops saying he did not consider the appointment of a "Missionary Bishop" in the person of Andy Lines to be necessary and berated the Primates for "cross-border intervention", arguing that it was not a Church of England appointment and therefore carried no weight in the Church of England.

June 14 2017 By dvirtue Good Disagreement, Generous Orthodoxy, the Nomenclature of Anglican Fudge

Probably the smartest of Anglican fudgists (my word) was Rowan Williams, who literally made words mean what he wanted them to mean and, by doing so, made sure that no one really understood what the blazes he was talking about. This meant, of course, that he was brilliant and full of wisdom. Allegedly.

June 07 2017 By dvirtue Thomas Cranmer and the Lord's Supper

Cranmer was primarily responsible for giving us The Book of Common Prayer, and the Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion, the doctrinal and liturgical basis of Anglicanism. They remain today the gold standard of Anglican doctrine, according to the laws and canons of the Church of England. They are used and cherished by millions in worldwide Anglicanism.

In England, our reformers were also martyrs. They were burned at the stake for what they believed and taught.

June 04 2017 By dvirtue Screwtape Proposes an Episcopal Toast

The endless desire to hold contradictory positions in tension in the name of good disagreement always plays into our hands. The orthodox will either be driven out or leave voluntarily, and revisionist leaders scream and have hissy fits about their failure to exercise generous orthodoxy and diversity. It's a game they play because they don't believe in absolute truth.
