Schism and Reconciliation

Well, it is sad indeed, as I see what is going on in the Anglican church here in North America. Inevitable, but no less sorrowful that things have come to this pass. Necessary too, though I see no cause for celebration of it, unless we consider that God is indeed doing a new thing – and the time for this in our part of the Christian world is now. Sober and sorrowful joyfulness would describe it well.

And as for a ‘second reformation’, a term that has been bandied about in Anglicanism in relation to the current troubles? Well, I don’t know, I think that might be overblowing it a bit if we are referring just to our church. However, in relation to the Church Universal, at least in the Western world, I think we can see the same kind of battle being fought in churches in many places. In that sense, I would put to you that God is calling a people unto Himself – calling us out of Babylon. I don’t know if I would call that a second reformation, perhaps it may turn out closer to a reconciliation – between us and God and with each other from our myriad denominations.

Why now, at this time? God has His purposes – perhaps next week I will share a prophetic word or two that speak about the time we find ourselves in.

    For what it’s worth, I think you are right on. Similar events are taling place in all the liberal protestant denominations. People and churches are either preparing to stay and persevere in apostate conditions, or enter into new associations. It is both a birth and a death. Stand on Christ Alone.

    Thanks Dan, just as you say!
