May 10 2005 By virtueonline The Church that lost its spirit - by Theo Hobson

Nor was I surprised by the general reverence of the press. For about a decade the overwhelming majority of religious comment has come from Roman Catholics. One can instantly think of a large handful of Catholic columnists (Paul Johnson, Charles Moore, Libby Purves, Christina Odone, William Rees-Mogg) - can you name a single one who is noticeably Anglican? There are also plenty of dogmatic atheist columnists, of course, and their daring disbelief has been on display.

May 05 2005 By virtueonline 'The days of so-called "Pluriform Truth" are over' - by John-David Schofield

What has become clear is that the days of so-called "Pluriform Truth" are over. The liberals have clearly lost any control of the direction that the Anglican Communion is going.

May 03 2005 By virtueonline Unspinning Anglican Doctrine - by Stephen Noll

There may be many other things about homosexuality in matters of pastoral care, social concern and church order up for discussion, but according to Lambeth, the compatibility of homosexual activity with the Word of God is not one of them.

May 03 2005 By virtueonline Empty Churches - by Thomas C. Reeves

With a couple of thousand years of history to learn from, Christians don't have to quibble about what is and isn't the historic, revealed faith. The issue is whether or not we accept it. Those churches preferring to base their religion and morality on current fads, social work, liberal politics, and the latest issue of the New York Times are disappearing.

May 02 2005 By virtueonline Trust me, archbishop, you won’t solve poverty - by Rod Liddle

Dr Rowan Williams, the Archbishop of Canterbury, has the sort of beard to which we should all aspire. It does not, perhaps, possess the wilful abandon of the Greek Orthodox beard (a church for which he nonetheless has some theological affection), nor the unbending certainty of the fundamentalist Muslim beard.

April 30 2005 By virtueonline The Joy of Eviction - by Ed Hird

After meeting with our gifted lawyer Bob Kuhn, we realized that our ex-diocese could drag this out for years in the courts, appealing again and again even if we won at the lower court level. Our former diocese has very deep pockets. With the BC Supreme Court cost being $10,000 a day, we decided that this would not be a good use of our resources. We would rather focus on telling people about the love of Jesus.

April 29 2005 By virtueonline Episcopal Church Cannot Survive Conflicting Doctrines

Heresy charges were invoked against Bishop Pike but there was neither the will nor the numbers to move forward. Whether overwhelmed by the counterculture of that era, or perhaps Pike's doubts were widely shared, the Episcopal Church failed to reprimand the obstinate bishop.

April 27 2005 By virtueonline A Bishop Can't Inhibit What God Inhabits - by David H. Roseberry

On the weekend of April 17, my wife, Fran, and I traveled to Connecticut so I could lead the worship and preach the gospel just in case the rector, Fr. Ron Gauss, were inhibited by the bishop. We were blessed by our visit in many ways. The following is a report of our visit:

I, along with five other priests from parishes outside the Diocese of Connecticut, have traveled here to preach and be present in worship as an act of solidarity for the beleaguered priests and their parishes.

April 27 2005 By virtueonline OXFORD THEOLOGIAN: "Time is short, Archbishop Williams must act"

It was so good to have him speaking so strongly and personally. Bishop Stanton has done an incredible amount to keep the global communion perspective alive in his diocese and within ECUSA. Bit it's a hard task right now. This must rank as one of the most turbulent times in Christian history for a bishop. I'm reminded of the Arian controversy in the early fourth century, when the great Athanasius was exiled from his see no less than five times.

April 21 2005 By virtueonline On calling the Pope too conservative - by John H. Rodgers

One can only ask if those who speak so freely of his being too conservative believe there is any truth in Scripture, tradition, reason and human experience that is binding on us all.
