September 12 2019 By virtueonline Welby should stand up for Christians persecuted by India

Justin Welby is an unlikely virtue-signaller, sharing a bloodline with luminaries of the Raj such as Sir Charles Napier, who famously punned "I have sinned" after the conquest of Sind. While maintaining that his trip to India was pastoral, not political, the archbishop lauded India's tolerance of diverse faiths.

September 09 2019 By virtueonline The Curse of Unbridled Success:

We Boomers were the first generation who kept thinking that everything was about us and that we could do whatever we wished--even into our 30's. The Great Generation were made tough and wise by weathering the Great Depression and World War II, but every generation since theirs has become increasingly spoiled and entitled.

August 29 2019 By virtueonline CITIZEN WELBY AND THE COSMETICS OF RECONCILIATION

Augustine and Pelagius clashed about the fundamentals of human nature as Christianity exposes them. In their early arguments they were not initially very far apart but as time went by and they sparred and provoked each other into ever more definitive responses they came to represent two fundamentally opposite views about human nature.

August 28 2019 By virtueonline SPRING, TX: Anglo-Catholic Bishop Unfolds Catholicity of Anglicanism

The former Wisconsin bishop and I have a long history together. When I was editor of small twin community weeklies in Chippewa County, Wisconsin, the Rt. Rev. William C. Wantland was the sitting ordinary in the Diocese of Eau Claire. After 25 years away I had returned to my home state and settled in the closest Episcopal church -- St. Luke's in Ladysmith, and Bishop Wantland became my bishop. I left Wisconsin as a Lutheran and returned as an Episcopalian.

August 28 2019 By virtueonline If the Foundations are Destroyed What Can the Righteous Do?

The wicked strut about on every side
when vileness is exalted among the sons of men.

(Psalm 12:8)

Our culture has thrown off the moral restraints that have governed western nations for millennia (Proverbs 29:18). The wholesale murder of children in their mother's wombs and the genocide of the elderly has become the norm rather than the exception. Everyone seems to do what is right in their own eyes (Judges 21:25; Proverbs 21:2; Isaiah 5:21).

August 27 2019 By virtueonline CHURCH OF ENGLAND TO SWAP COMMUNION WINE FOR COCA-COLA IN SUPPORT OF GAY RIGHTS

Welby says he was struck by the "liberating potential of the blushing bubbly" after he read about Coca-Cola's latest pro-gay advertising campaign in Hungary.

"I was deeply moved by the gospel-like message of the company. Even its response to a boycott of its products by rightwing conservatives was loving," he writes, "and overcome by thirst for truth, I rushed to my refrigerator, opened a can of Coke and added it to my tot of rum."

August 21 2019 By virtueonline A Brazilian Reflects on the Upcoming Lambeth Conference

What is Lambeth's calling? Its purpose is to be a meeting place and communion for bishops and archbishops under the leadership of the archbishop of Canterbury, today the Rev. Dr. Justin Welby.

August 20 2019 By virtueonline ONWARD, CHRISTIAN TALIBAN! MARCHING INTO CATHEDRALS

When Welby was Dean of Liverpool, he got its cathedral bells to peal the Beatles' Imagine, which Lennon himself called "anti-religious, anti-conventional and anti-capitalistic." Lowbrow Welby also salivated at shock-jock artist Tracey Emin's steamily suggestive installation of a neon sign in pornographic purple above the cathedral's west door, that reads: "I felt you and knew that you loved me."

August 16 2019 By virtueonline Cathedral gimmicks illustrate spiritually blind Britain and mute Church

My feeling is that using cathedrals for golf and fairground slides is a bit silly and probably won't have a positive missional result, but it illustrates society's secularism and the church's loss of confidence in the gospel rather than being deliberately malevolent.

August 15 2019 By virtueonline PROCESSING ANGLICAN HISTORY: India and the Archbishops of Canterbury

One thing is certain that the programmes will be tailored to show that the CSI is doing a great job and is running its development projects very well. It is already indicating that the Lambeth team will be visiting the project sites/church buildings and that seems to become a major part of the programme schedule.
