Cranmer was a gentle and cautious man and his theological positions developed unhurriedly.

April 04 2021 By dvirtue IT IS FINISHED

For years now I have wondered about an opening verse in Paul's epistle to the Ephesians: "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places" (1:3).

March 23 2021 By dvirtue Thoughts on The Problem of Evil and Suffering (Part 3) -- Final

Divine Mystery. An extremely common evangelical approach to the problem of evil and suffering is to simply say that the causes are unknowable in God's inscrutable ways.

March 12 2021 By dvirtue THE PEDIGREE OF REFORMATIONAL ANGLICANISM

The Ecclesia Anglicana and its offspring in various provinces throughout the world are the recipients and custodians of a priceless heritage emerging from the findings of pious and scholarly minds attuned to the teachings of Scripture in both Britain, and on the Continent, in the Reformation era.
