Bring Back Burning At The Stake


The Anglicans drift further into heresy:

The Three Wise Men who followed the star to Bethlehem bearing gifts for the baby Jesus may not have been all that wise — or even men.

The traditional infant nativity play scene could be in for a drastic rewrite after the Church of England indulged in some academic gender-swapping over the three Magi at its General Synod in London this week.

A committee revising the latest prayer book said the term “Magi” was a transliteration of the name used by officials at the Persian court, and that they could well have been women.

We are made to conform to the image of God. Yet, now the Anglicans conform God to our image. If we cannot rest of a firm foundation, why have a house at all?

In Bible study tonight, I heard a phrase I like, “meandering through a maze of mediocrity.” That is where the Anglicans have been for a while. They apparently will not find their way out any time soon.

  • You are not totally correct. As an Anglican, I am very pleased at the rise of the new conservative Anglican network of confessing parishes and dioceses that has been recently formed. This network is comprised of vocal conservative Anglicans fighting against the drift of the official US Anglican (Episcopal) church leadership away from the teachings of Scripture and the Holy Spirit. This network is currently within the US Anglican Church but has been backed by half the conservative Anglican Primates in the world. Even the Archbishop of Canterbury today declared his “sympathy’ with it, which would have struck a blow tothe US Anglican leadership. No, don’t give up on Anglicans just yet. We’re starting to fight back against the official church acceptance of apostasy and political correctness.
