Al Mohler gives an insightful overview of the recent CofE Synod vote to allow women Bishops.

‘Get with the Program’ — The Church of England Votes to Ordain Women Bishops – AlbertMohler.com.

I fully realise that Conservative Evangelical CofE congregations are able to use the CofE mechanism to further their own evangelistic efforts. But having said that, surely the time is now for those Conservative Ministers & leaders to take their congregation (and  their cash) out of the CofE and to form something else (I have no idea what – but it could be done) that will have doctrinal (Biblical) and historical integrity.

Perhaps Conservative congregations that are ‘bolted’ on to a failing structure also ‘need to get with the program’ and get out. Such a move would I believe be applauded by the general public for taking a stand even if they didn’t fully realise why.

I know, I know, we are all institutionalised to some extent and this makes it very hard to sever the ties. Nevertheless I’m wondering just how far the CofE will need go before conservative Evangelicals will say enough. Personally from where I’m sitting (I’m not an Anglican) it will never happen because in the end the structure no matter how rickety it is will always be more important. I confess to not understanding that.

Minority Report

Just an observation:

(en) Monitor lizards' forked tongue. (fr) La l...

Apparently the current Archbishop is a champion of minorities – as are several other outspoken Bishops and MP’s

Yet, when a minority blocks the appointment of women Bishops they are classed as outdated, sect like and not going with what the majority want.

There are several ways to describe this – speaking with forked tongue, speaking out of two sides of the mouth or just plain lying. They only support a minority when it furthers their own view and has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with Bible teaching or Truth.

The Reformed and Evangelicals should come out – but they won’t. The policy is keep the CoE together at all costs!

Tony Baldry MP said “A broad church is being held to ransom by a few narrow minds.” Well Tony, it’s a narrow way.
