---Cerar, rector of St. Stephen's Anglican Church, is leaving, along with his congregation. They're handing the keys over to their theological rivals, the St. Stephen's Episcopal Church. Earlier this year, a judge ruled that seven conservative Virginia congregations that had split with the Episcopal Church must hand over almost everything they own. It's like the end of a marriage, with people moving out and splitting up assets even it's own long, ugly battle.---

Justice is a wonderful thing to see in action! TEC is bearing fruit on its own trees once again and the robbers have gone to a new den.

Psalm 118:22-24

22 The stone which the builders refused has become the head stone of the corner.

23 This is the LORD'S doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.

24 This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.


Matthew 21:41-43

41 They said unto Him, "He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, who shall render him the fruits in their seasons."

42 Jesus said unto them, "Did ye never read in the Scriptures:`The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner. This is the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes'?

43 Therefore say I unto you, the Kingdom of God shall be taken from you and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

Law is law. However law is not always right. Law is not always moral. And law is certainlty not always scriptural.

TEC is legal, but it is not right, moral, or scriptural.

But TEC does care about what is right, moral, or scriptural. That is why their faithful are leaving in droves.

When the Lord returns, one would assume a person would rather be on the side of what is right, moral and scriptural instead of on the side of what is legal in any given country, including our own.

In some countries the law says Christianity is illegal and in some countries the law allows the persecution of Christians. I assume TEC sits back and laughs, "Law is law" and "Justice is a wonderful thing to see in action!

Incidently, the Pharisees were all about what the law says and knew nothing of mercy. Based on Jesus' definitions, TEC are the Pharisees in these cases!

..... Compare all of those concerned's lifestyles and beliefs with those of Jesus; many so-called "Christianities" were invented after Jesus had been crucified.
