August 11 2022 By dvirtue The problem with Justin Welby's environmentalism

Justin Welby, nominal head of the Anglican communion, is undoubtedly on board with environmentalism. He made this clear in a keynote speech on Sunday at the Lambeth Conference. Unfortunately, if you expected him to put the religious argument for environmentalism at the forefront of his speech, you would be disappointed. His approach was rather different. It was all a matter, he said, of an unjust society and the need to deal with it.

August 10 2022 By dvirtue A Cure for the Lambeth Hangover?

In his speech he compared the views that deeply divide the church:

First, he spoke of the, "large majority of the Anglican Communion" for whom the "traditional understanding of marriage is something that is understood, accepted and without question, not only by Bishops but their entire Church, and the societies in which they live.

At the heart of this new Communion is humility, repentance from our sins, and a call to obedience to God's Word.

August 05 2022 By dvirtue A POST-CANTERBURY ANGLICANISM?

Archbishop Welby, while personally supportive of Lambeth 1.10 has spoken of the Communion as a messy family having arguments like any other. Archbishop Justin Badi of South Sudan recalled that Jesus defined the Church family not like any other family but composed of those who do will of his Father (Matthew 12:49).

August 04 2022 By dvirtue WHAT THEN HAS HAPPENED TO LAMBETH RESOLUTION 1.10 (1998) AT LC2022?

Instead, the Archbishop "affirms the validity of the resolution." This no more than saying, "Yes, the 1998 Lambeth Conference did produce Resolution 1.10, and it really did say these things about the authority of Scripture and human sexuality. Yes, the resolution as we know it is valid." But what he did not say is that Lambeth 1.10 is authoritative, or that it should be followed by all Anglicans.
