NAIROBI, Kenya (RNS) Some African bishops view a new Anglican structure as unnecessary and prefer restoring the communion to its original form.

    Which translation and whose exegesis? The notion that “The Bible” has a single consistent meaning is the clearest hallmark of sinfully ignorant Bible cultism.

    People will pervert the Gospel to the point of schism, to preserve their petty hatreds while blaming them on God. I wonder if the schismatic bishops of Africa wear mixed-fiber surplices, and kill their disobedient children?

    Ted,
    ” …and kill their disobedient children? ”

    It is actually humorous to read —

    …those who disobey their parents are “worthy of death”…….Romans 1:30

    That verse should read ‘children who disobey their parents’ because who else would disobey their parents but children.

    Read Romans 29 – 31

    Can we imagine anyone being ‘worthy of death’ in our day for such reasons ?

    Of course not.

    All of these so called holy scriptures need some serious reasoning ‘to be applied’ before they qualify to be considered ‘holy’.

    BB,

    It must be asserted that it is the Anglicans wanting the Bible front and center to validate their persecution of gay people are the ones in the wrong. These gay-supportive people in the Church of England reaffirming human decency are the good guys.
