My friend Gene Veith commented below on the formation of a new Anglican church body.
So what should the Lutheran response be to this? I have never really understood the “conservative” movements that really are motivated by social, 2nd Table of the Law type issues. The ELCA has its share of these as well.
But why is it that when it comes to the Gospel of the forgiveness of sins, nobody cares?
Various conservative Episcopalians have come together to form a new Anglican church body, one that will vie with the Episcopal Church in America as the true representative of this country in the world Anglican communion:
How conservative than the new Anglican church be if it communes the unbaptized and is open to the ordination of women? Surely opposition to homosexuality can’t be the basis of a church’s existence. Nor can agreement on a common liturgy. There needs to be agreement in theology. Doesn’t there?
