Justin Welby: unable to give a straight answer on whether gay sex is sinful, by Gavin Ashenden

“Culturally progressive propaganda has put several misleading and flawed arguments into the public debate, and Justin Welby has been captured by them. It helps us to look at them, because Justin Welby is not alone. So many people have been bemused and misled as he has been.”

 

The Archbishop of Canterbury, irreconcileable difference and ‘copping out’, by Jonathan Draper, Modern Church [from a revisionist perspective]

“Being ‘one in Christ’ has never been about simply believing the same things, it’s always been about loving one another in Christ in spite of our differences”

 

Dear Archbishop Justin, please heal my heartbreak, by David Baker, Christian Today

“’When Christ calls someone,’ as Dietrich Bonhoeffer wrote, ‘He calls them to come and die’…Part of that involves submitting our own views and ideas to His teaching as the church has discerned it. Whatever our own thoughts, the Church of England – and Anglican Communion – does still have a clear view.

 

Revd Dr Ian Paul of the Psephizo blog and member of Archbishop’s Council, commented:

“I am afraid to say that my heart absolutely sinks when reading this. If Justin is not himself convinced of the teaching position not only of the Church of England, but the church catholic’s teaching on sex and sexuality through the ages, not to mention what scripture says, I don’t understand how he can possibly lead the Church forward in this area.”

 

Collect from the Book of Common Prayer

ALMIGHTY God, who by thy Son Jesus Christ didst give to thy holy Apostles many excellent gifts, and didst charge them to feed thy flock: Give grace, we beseech thee, to all Bishops, the Pastors of thy Church, that they may diligently preach thy Word, and duly administer the godly discipline thereof; and grant to the people, that they may obediently follow the same; that all may receive the crown of everlasting glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
