Isn't there an "L" missing from the word "fight" in the title.
Fighting, to me, indicates staying, as I am, trying to hold on to what many will condemn me for - trying to get the Church to kick out the liberal free-wheeling interpretations and the homosexual agenda, and return to Othodoxy.
But I would say that I'm remaing to "fight", and for those who've left, I would use the word "flight".
Not trying to get in a snarky semantics argument and certainly don't want to bring up the really nasty comments toward me by someone who showed up on these threads and accused me last Sunday of something to the effect of refusing to realize taht I was fighting for a Church that has turned itself over to a demonic attraction, or some such.
Besides, personal attacks not only aren't allowed on FR, they certainly don't encourage dialogue as I read what that poster said, and just left the thread. The Religion Mod has taught me well. Thanks, RM.
You have a point, and I admit that out of context not provided here the title looks a bit odd, but in my perusals I've been given to understand that J. I. Packer is in fact still fighting -- with writings such as this article, and in speaking engagements.
