June 04 2024 By dvirtue Reorienting Evangelicalism to Christian Life Distinct from the World

Relevance, Renn said, "seeks to bring the Kingdom of God, the message of the church, to the affairs of men in their daily life." Keller found mainline Protestantism to be a relevance strategy, but the seeker sensitive movement also focused on relevance. A megachurch sermon might be concerned with social media use, taking a passage of Scripture or a Biblical principle and applying it to social media.

It is absolutely shocking!

The redesigned the Episcopal Church shield signifies that the Episcopal Church has become a social change agency with a religious veneer.

May 22 2024 By dvirtue THE GREAT BETRAYAL!

There's nothing "Anglican" about this. Nothing! And it betrays everything Cranmer and the English reformers fought for. It betrays the sure foundation of God's inspired Word (sola Scriptura) what Alister McGrath calls "Christianity's Dangerous Idea." It categorically abandons the recognized formularies that have historically defined what it means to be Anglican.

May 19 2024 By dvirtue ON WOMEN'S ORDINATION AND THE ANGLICAN CHURCH IN NORTH AMERICA (ACNA)

I propose here a scripture-based and rational argument that ACNA leaders can provide regarding changing the current situation. In ACNA, some of the leaders have unfortunately called their unresolved stance "dual integrities"-- which has been rightly criticized as an oxymoron. Through the prophet Amos, God underlined this point with logic: "Can two even walk together if they do not agree on the direction"? And we all know that "a house divided against itself cannot stand."

We recognise the traumatic and complex situations which may lead some pregnant women to consider an abortion. Such difficult circumstances call for compassion and understanding along with appropriate pastoral and medical care, and the provision of other options besides termination, for vulnerable women in their time of need.

May 10 2024 By dvirtue THE BIBLE DOES NOT JUSTIFY ANTI-SEMITISM

The New Testament is clear that ethnic Jews and ethnic Gentiles both stand condemned before God as sinners and can only be saved through faith in Jesus Christ. The same God "gives to all mankind life and breath and everything," and "he made from one man every nation of mankind" (Acts 17:25-26). Yet both Jews and Gentiles have broken God's law, so "both Jews and Greeks are under sin," Paul declared (Romans 3:9). "But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law ...

There are nine colonial-era schools, seven of which are in the prestigious Ivy League. One other Ivy League school was founded in the days following the Civil War.

WHAT MAKES AN IVY LEAGUE SCHOOL

May 02 2024 By dvirtue THE WAR ON REALITY

A consequence of this choice, Paul observes, is a 'darkening of their hearts' and 'futility in their thinking'. Idolatry stands in opposition to the truth; idolatry deceives and deludes those who practise it. Those who suppress the truth are both dishonouring the real God, but also ultimate reality. They suppress the truth about God, but also attempt to suppress reality.

Several key aspects of reality they reject or suppress:
Rejection of The Father:

Romans 15:1-2 We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves. 2 Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up.

Romans 15:5-6 May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, 6 that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.
