As Eye See It
September 30 2004 By virtueonline Anglicans at the crossroads - by Austin Ivereigh. A Roman Catholic perspective

The commission was asked to look at the future shape of the worldwide Anglican church, a loose federation of national churches accurately described recently by Frank Griswold, presiding bishop of the Episcopal Church of the U.S.A., as a “nonjuridical reality.” The question the commission has been asked to consider is “how to maintain the highest degree of communion possible” in the light of Griswold’s decision -- taken against the express pleas of the Anglican primates -- to consecrate an act

September 30 2004 By virtueonline Louie Crew and Uganda:"You should resign from Executive Council" by Andrew Carey

Although the Church of Uganda is responsible for its own actions in choosing to associate broken communion with financial assistance, this is partly because officers of ECUSA since 2003 have been not so subtly accusing the African church of grandstanding. They’re still accepting our money, they’re still accepting our missionaries, they have said to the international press when asked about broken communion.

September 29 2004 By virtueonline FOND DU LAC: A "Historic Moment" for the U.S. Continuing Church

Not only that, the prelates were joined by the Rev. David Moyer, head of the Episcopal Church traditionalist organization, Forward in Faith, North America; and the Rev. David Chislett, Vice President of Forward in Faith-Australia.

September 26 2004 By virtueonline VA BISHOP TO GRISWOLD:"I will not attend HOB. I promised to guard the Faith"

This decision arises from my understanding of the promises I made at my ordination as a bishop. I promised to guard the faith, unity and discipline of the Church. I also promised to share in the governance of the whole Church. To me, the vow to guard the faith, unity and discipline outweighs governance, in that a disregard for unity and discipline makes governance impossible.

They mean to make a recommendation that promises to be made public by 18 October. So that is why I write this - we all are living in this news. We will see this report soon.

How are we to understand what God is doing? How do each of us at

September 21 2004 By virtueonline Speaking truth about terror - by Cal Thomas

As a good Baptist would say, "Amen!" It's about time somebody spoke the truth. From Russia to Iraq, from the Sudan to the Philippines, and from Madrid, Bali and Kenya to the World Trade Center in New York, a field in Pennsylvania and the Pentagon in Washington, one characteristic describes all of the killers: They are Muslims.

September 21 2004 By virtueonline Who Owns the Church? - by Ian Hunter

Now comes the interesting legal question: who owns a church? I do not mean the theological church (which Christians sometimes refer to as the "body of Christ"), but the local building and pews, those sometimes splendid, sometimes ramshackle, edifices to which worshippers trudge on a Sunday morning to give honour and glory to God?

September 14 2004 By virtueonline Weak leader, weak message - by Joseph D'Hippolito

This from a religious figure who personally witnessed the World Trade Center towers collapse.

As an American who saw thousands of his countrymen incinerated three years ago, I believe the good archbishop did nothing but politely revile the innocent dead and the loved ones they left behind.

Can men who hijack airplanes and plow them into buildings for the greater glory of Allah be considered the neighbors of civilized people?

September 12 2004 By virtueonline Don't blame God, Dr. Williams - by Peter Mullen

We know of course that there is such a thing as "the problem of evil", but I have never been able to see much of a problem here. The argument was classically put by David Hume when he argued that the fact of evil in the world is not consistent with belief in a good God: "If God is omnipotent, omniscient and wholly good, whence evil? If God wills to prevent evil but cannot, then He is not omnipotent. If He can prevent evil but does not, then he is not good. In either case he is not God."
