June 04 2024 By dvirtue Theologian Pushes Christians to Ask What It Means to be Human in a Growing Trans-Human World

TRUEMAN: I hesitate to say we have come to the end; perhaps the trans-human self is yet to come. Transgenderism as a function of the sexual revolution isn't necessarily about sexual desire, but is rather about the role of the body in human identity.

May 31 2024 By dvirtue IS THE ANGLICAN CHURCH IN NORTH AMERICA AT A TIPPING POINT?

Women's Ordination has been a simmering issue in the ACNA since its founding in 2009. ACNA "settled" for what it called "dual integrities" on the issue, so that it welcomes ordained women but does not compel bishops to ordain them. The ACNA agreed that there will be no women bishops. Through the prophet Amos, God underlined this point with logic: "Can two even walk together if they do not agree on the direction"?

He has capitulated to the pansexualists, openly embraced women bishops, none of whom show the slightest interest in the gospel, pandered to all manner of woke issues and has, most egregiously alienated his catholic and evangelical wings of the church.

May 14 2024 By dvirtue "Anglicanism offers an excellent way to be a Mere Christian," -- Dr. Bryan C. Hollon

HOLLON: When I arrived at Trinity two years ago, we were just coming out of the COVID years. The residential student body was reduced significantly during the pandemic, but our online enrollment had risen, which was not a surprise. Currently, we have around 250 students studying at Trinity in some capacity with just under 100 considered "full-time," according to the criteria recommended by our accrediting agency, the Association of Theological Schools.

May 07 2024 By dvirtue IMMEDIATE CEASEFIRE NEEDED TO AVERT FAMINE IN GAZA, SAYS WELBY, BUT IS HE RIGHT?

So, who is best served by a ceasefire? The people of Gaza certainly, but so would Hamas who would then use the time to rearm and reposition themselves in Rafah for an extended war that would make it harder for IDF forces to eliminate. And Hamas has already dropped the number of hostages they said they would release from 40 to 20. They are playing the long game. They know the longer they drag the war out and not surrender all the hostages in one sweep, the more world opinion sides with them.
