Joe didn't you find this section interesting?

From the article:

During the Anglican Covenant discussion on March 29, Atlanta Bishop Neil Alexander delivered a paper and raised the question about whether the proposed covenant "would substantially alter Anglican ecclesiology, specifically by inaugurating -- for the first time -- a more centralized authority than we have ever had before," Epting wrote.

The three international primates each delivered responses to Alexander's paper, Epting wrote. "I was surprised to note that all three have serious reservations about the covenant and whether it will indeed be of any use at all in resolving some of the conflict in the Anglican Communion."

and later

"There seems to be general agreement that Parts 1, 2 and 3 of the covenant are an acceptable description of Anglican history and ecclesiology but that Part 4 really does not accomplish its goal of providing a way constructively to manage or respond to disagreements across the communion and may even perpetuate them," Epting wrote.

He noted that the primate of South Korea expressed a concern from his House of Bishops about "the vestiges of colonialism" in section 4 "with decisions being made about a local church (province) outside that local church about its internal decisions."

Epting said that everyone attending the meeting "seems prepared to continue to discuss and work with the proposed covenant" but noted that some bishops suggested finding a "third way forward since many of us in the West, in Latin America, and Asia are having trouble voting for it All in all, it was a respectful and thoughtful conversation which should provide much grist for the mill as we move forward."

And the presiding bishop ended the session with her own rendition of "I'm Schori, so Schori," since the assembly apparently did not address any the issues that he driving members out in droves -- either into non-participation or out of the church altogether. I guess the bishops aren't concerned.

That is their ultimate goal. They want the orthodox Christians to leave that way they can implement their false gospel without any resistance.

What they don't understand is that many more are leaving because there really is no difference between going to a TEC service and the world outside.

That's where the real work is, isn't it?

Perfect, as you Father in heaven is perfect, He expects nothing less then our continually striving for this goal.

You keep Him locked up in your building on and just let Him out on Sundays.
