from ABC2 Maryland:

"'This has been a long process of discernment, guided by the Holy Spirit,' said the Rev. Terry Sweeney, rector ...'I am grateful for the gift of faith nurtured within the Episcopal Church and for the opportunity for those members who have been called to continue their journey of faith within the Catholic Church to be able to do so without losing the beauty of Anglican traditions.'

"Sweeney will retire as an Episcopal priest on April 1, 2013."

What a hard and difficult thing to go thru for St. Timothy's. Much trouble has followed this church and maybe the change could turn it around. I used to go there and didn't realise how much that ways going on there. I just hope the church doesn't close.

Thou shalt not steal indeed. If the law of the land defines stealing, then churches leaving the TEC should leave everything behind. If the Bible defines stealing, then TEC should gladly let those churches leaving have their property and money. But TEC knows nothing of the Bible. That's why they go rushing to court. On Judgment Day Jesus will reveal who the thieves are.

25 If someone sues you, come to terms with him quickly, while you and he are on the way to court; or he may hand you over to the judge, and the judge to the officer of the court, and you may be thrown in jail!

26 Yes indeed! I tell you, you will certainly not get out until you have paid the last penny.- Jesus

TEC seems to regard scripture as malleable and subjective (see Rev Ken's expositions), but regards civil property statutes as immutable and inviolable.

Odd dichotomy.

When people cite scripture to you on other things, you sniff and tell them you can't listen to a book or something similar.

Now, you cite scripture to buttress TEC's legal actions.

Inconsistent, yes?

Supports my earlier post that TEC seems to regard civil property statute as having been handed to us on stone tablets by the Almighty, while scripture is subject to the whims of the reader and can mean almost anything.

Sorry Dan but I always quote Jesus, not Saul but JESUS - my Messiah.

Try it some time, you might get the gist of the message....

It's scripture and it's from a book. The same book you turned your nose up at on another thread.

Thanks.

While we enjoy some of the observations that SAUL made, we are followers of JESUS, not Paul.

Here's to hoping the scales fall from your eyes as well.

The cleric, Cardinal Keith O’Brien, said that he had submitted his resignation months ago, and the Vatican said Pope Benedict XVI had accepted it on Feb. 18. However, the timing of the announcement — a day after news reports of alleged abuse appeared in Britain —suggested that the Vatican had encouraged the cardinal to stay away from the conclave.

Not really, Dan.

It is more an issue of stewardship.

There is scripture, too. Jesus said, "Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar's and render unto God that which belongs to God."

Property and financial assets are not the foundation of faith.

The idea that any bishop of The Episcopal Church can simply take off his or her vestments and revoke their affiliation and source of ecclesial authority as transmitted through the Church and, yet, simultaneously decide to take off with all of the Church assets is not going to go unchallenged.

Pretty simple, really.

We'll let it play out. Let the lawyers take their share.

Simply noting which authority you seem to hold inviolate and absolute and to what degree.

Respective to property and assets, you accept civil law as authoritative without one moment's hesitation nor question, even as it relates to rupture in your church.

When your TEC fellows here with whom you disagree mention scripture, you will undertake any length of discussion to let them know that it's ever-changing and you and others will actually rebuke them for their efforts to hew to it as an absolute authority.

That's how it looks to this outsider, anyway.

No diversion...if these people want to flock to the same people who sit in opulence while the world starves, fine.
