July 22 2004 By virtueonline The ANGLICAN WAY in NORTH AMERICA - by Peter Toon

However, Anglicans have always been aware of the fact that any one or more of their Churches or Provinces, or dioceses therein, could reject or revise the received, historic Faith and thereby enter the slippery slope into apostasy. There are grave warnings in Holy Scripture of the danger of apostasy and the history of the Church provides examples thereof.

There are times to compromise, and there are other times when compromise will eat you alive. As much as all of us would love peace in the Episcopal Church, to declare peace when there is conflict and discord is dishonest. As much as all of us would like to go on as if nothing important happened at General Convention last summer, we have to honestly acknowledge that the actions of that body have disrupted the life of our church.

June 18 2004 By virtueonline ACI on its Submission to the Lambeth Commission

Sketching features of this ‘unprecedented and dangerous moment within the Anglican Communion’, it highlights the need for the Archbishop of Canterbury and Primates ‘to bring order into a frighteningly chaotic situation’.

The argument that the Communion has been here before in relation to the ordination of women and that Anglicans are now in a period of ‘reception’ in relation to acceptance of same-sex unions and bishops who live within such unions is firmly rebutted.

June 18 2004 By virtueonline Christianity is not a feeling - by James E. Flowers

Sadly, our me-oriented, self absorbed generation, has elevated “feeling” to the point that in our culture, absolutely nothing is more important.

The site of the Martyrs' celebration is Namugongo, the traditional royal
killing ground. The Anglicans possess the actual site and have erected two little structures there: one a replica of the Executioner's hut, the other a replica of the pyre on which the martyrs were roasted. Before the service, people queue up for hours waiting to visit these shrines.

June 07 2004 By virtueonline Where is the candlestick? - by Dr. Edith M. Humphrey

Resolution A-134 was bad enough:
it settled for a three-year extension to a discussion that has gone about as far as possible, ending in theological impasse between irreconcilable positions.

it implied that the issue of blessing homoerotic relationships may well not be a matter of doctrine—that is to be decided.

May 23 2004 By virtueonline Open letter to all Canadian Bishops of the Anglican Church of Canada

My plea for each of you is that you will immerse yourself in fervent prayer and contemplative meditation on your role as shepherd. My prayer is that the Holy Spirit will lift the scales from all encrusted eyes so that the Truth will reign.
