Jesus’s flock believe in miracles

May 12, 2019 by

by Julian Mann, The Conservative Woman: IN 1984 a network called Sea of Faith was launched in the Church of England. It started in response to a book and then a TV series by a Cambridge academic clergyman called Don Cupitt.

Disagreement and Faithfulness

May 1, 2019 by

by Susie Leafe, AAC: Disagreement is never enjoyable. Yet, I’m struck that it should not come as a surprise.  It seems that disagreement between those who call themselves Christians has been ‘normal’ from the beginning. After all, Jesus challenged the disciples when they argued over who would sit at his right hand, and He prayed that all those who followed them would know the oneness that he experienced with the Father.  Paul challenged the Corinthians (and many others), and James, Peter and...

Fight valiantly! Contending, not conforming.

Apr 4, 2019 by

By Lee Gatiss, Church Society. According to the Apostle Paul, there are some people we should avoid altogether. These people have doubled-down on their errors… …In chapter 4 [of 2 Timothy], Paul describes how the false teachers cause people to “turn back from” the truth or “turn aside” from it. Timothy is to avoid those who make people avid for heresy; and turn away from those who turn others on with lies! Timothy’s reaction and response to this apostasy and failure to listen to the...

The Times Pushes a Tired and Flawed Gay Priest Narrative

Mar 10, 2019 by

by Adrian Reimers, Crisis Magazine: In its recent Sunday edition, America’s newspaper of record ran a front-page article on the challenges facing gay Catholic priests titled “A Silent Crisis for Gay Priests.” It is the most recent specimen of the journalistic genre of suffering-gay-Catholic-priests-in-an-unwelcoming-Church.
