The Episcopal Church Furthers Apostasy


Yesterday, The Episcopal Church (American Anglican Church) removed the moratorium on ordaining openly gay bishops. Apparently Kathryn Jefferts (the American Primate) also claimed that personal salvation through "the sinner's prayer" and faith in Jesus Christ was "the Western heresy". So they not only denied the words of scripture on homosexuality, but also the Reformation. Just as I was rethinking Canterbury, this happens (maybe it's a sign). Well, it appears that not even God can save the Anglican Communion now.

Rome welcomes you.

    "The overarching connection in all of these crises has to do with the great Western heresy – that we can be saved as individuals, that any of us alone can be in right relationship with God. It’s caricatured in some quarters by insisting that salvation depends on reciting a specific verbal formula about Jesus. That individualist focus is a form of idolatry, for it puts me and my words in the place that only God can occupy, at the center of existence, as the ground of being."
