from Myrtle Beach Online:

"The fracture between a pastor and a congregant, though, is not the only one that separates The Episcopal Church from the Lowcountry churches that broke away from it.

"There are fractures between groups of congregants and their churches, between one church and another and between groups of churches and The Episcopal Church."

The biggest fracture is between TEC and Holy Scripture. This is what is causing every other fracture.

TEC remains in a state of disconnect between God and man and man and man, yet somehow its members insist things are getting better.

The connection is undeniable.

TEC left Scripture as a guide and has gone its own way. Relying on unaided reason is a bad choice. Man wants his/her own way and using unaided reason he/she will always get what is wanted.

"Did God really say........" The question that TEC asked long ago and answered with a resounding NO! There began the fracture and it will remain until you are called back through revival.

TEC no longer worships God. They worship the created instead of the Creator.

Didn't they take Romans 1 out of TEC's lectionary? Seems like I heard they did. Wouldn't want anyone to be uncomfortable about their sin.

Who cares what TEC took out of their lectionary. The problem is that they have taken law and gospel our of the theology. They have sold their birthright for a bowl of pottage.

Sharing the same lectionary doesn't mean that these denomiations all share the same values expressed in it.
