August 10 2019 By virtueonline CONVERT OR BE CONVERTED

In every generation the Church faces a live or die challenge. Convert or be converted. Either act as an agency for people to encounter the Living God and be forgiven, turned and transformed; or fit into the unforgiving contours of a society that is driven by other forces, other appetites, and smear over their agenda a patina of spirituality that confers a thin covering of political and cultural legitimacy.

August 02 2019 By virtueonline KISSING CHRISTIANITY GOODBYE

While Harris seems to be making a clean break with his past, the style of his apostasy announcement is oddly consistent with the evangelical Christianity he used to represent. He revealed he was leaving the faith with a social media post, which included a mood photograph of himself contemplating a beautiful lake. The earlier announcement of his divorce used the typical postmodern jargon of "journey" and "story." And both posts were designed to play to the emotions rather than the mind.

A showdown over homosexuality was the flash point for many churches leaving TEC, but the conflict had much deeper roots.

It has formed a pathway for unity, the model of which was followed with minor changes in schemes of church union in Ceylon, North India, Ghana, Rhodesia, Nigeria, Tanzania and the West Indies and to some extent in the Anglican-Methodist scheme in England.
