he Council of Church Society meeting yesterday (Tuesday) noted with gratitude the recent statement from the House of Bishops of the Church of Nigeria.
The Bishops were responding to a recent reflection sent out by the Archbishop of Canterbury. They particularly called attention to the apparent underlying assumption made by the Archbishop that unity is more important than truth. It is clear from such statements as the historic creeds and the Thirty-nine Articles of Religion (part of the eformulariesf) that the Church of England and the Anglican Communion assume that there are boundaries to what is and is not authentic Christianity and to the legitimate interpretation of the Bible.
The theological divisions now affecting the Anglican Communion are a result of people and churches trying to distort plain biblical teaching. The Bishopsf analysis of this as a ecancerous lumpf which will kill the body is entirely correct.
It is our fervent hope that over the coming months orthodox leaders within the Anglican Communion will work to ensure that our world-wide fellowship of churches is not destroyed by false teaching, immorality, inaction and indifference.
I don't know. I'm still waiting for the $10 million this one Nigerian bishop promised me in a recent e-mail. :-)
Hey, a sitting Congressman fell for that trick.
Of course, he was from Narlins, so what do you expect...
