Stay Close to God; The Bishops Just Play Word Games and Politics

You can read it for yourself from The Episcopal News Service. (The Diocese of South Dakota actually posted the link on its "Message Board"!)

Needless to say, there's not much good news for Biblical Episcopalians. More "process" - even homosexual activist groups like "Integrity" and mainstream media like The New York Times are complaining about the word tricks and lack of honesty. Not sure what our Bishops are up to but it ain't Christian leadership.

Recently, a friend sent along Isaiah 26:1-4
In that day this song will be sung in the land of Judah:
We have a strong city;
God makes salvation
its walls and ramparts.
Open the gates

that the righteous nation may enter,
the nation that keeps faith.
You will keep in perfect peace

him whose mind is steadfast,
because he trusts in you.
Trust in the LORD forever,

for the LORD, the LORD, is the Rock eternal.

May we find security in the salvation won for us by the blood of Christ. That's our only defense in a corrupt time. In Christ may we know perfect peace and feel secure upon the Rock eternal. He will bring his own through the gate that leads to life.

I'm glad that the mask is finally off and we all can see TEC's true appearance. This is the final straw for many, and as Archbishop Orombi said on Tuesday, we can expect more to come out of TEC. The Common Cause Bishops need our prayers as they seek to forge a vibrant orthodox Anglicanism in the USA. We are watching history in the making, my friend!

But then, today's news from Pittsburgh looks far more interesting. There may actually be a real, orthodox, conservative Anglican presence in the United States yet. It may take a while to implement, but it looks good.
