"What will be your focus as head of the U.S. church?

"Our focus needs to be on feeding people who go to bed hungry, on providing primary education to girls and boys, on healing people with AIDS, on addressing tuberculosis and malaria, on sustainable development. That ought to be the primary focus."

The Gospel of Jesus Christ ought to be the primary focus.

No comments to Schori's "no comment" of the Gospel in her "primary foucus" answer?

All of the activities listed above, and more, are considered important parts of the Ministry and Gospel of Jesus Christ, as reprtedly described by Jesus Himself.

... but these important parts are not the Gospel, only the fruit produced from preaching it.

And what is the fruit of a church that doesn't think preaching the gospel ought to be its "primary focus"?

In #5 above, you admit that TEC preaches the Gospel - which it most definitely does.

In #7 above, you then criticize the Church for the fruits of its efforts, which fruits are exactly what they are supposed to be - according to Christ Jesus, in his reply to the inquiry of the disciples of John, the Baptist.

Now, in the post above, you claim what?

That neither your post #5 nor #7 are valid questions to be given valid answers?

You've ingested too many of David Virtue's sour grapes.

And which defnition of "fruits" should we understand by your reference. TEO is certainly full of and known for the fruits who inhabit its pews and altars.

Is TEO the same as 'Trolls Expressing Orthodoxy'? There are just too many special interest groups out there these days!

No Medusa - it stand for The Episcopal Organization, it having forfeited any legitimate claim to be called a church.

Ken, reading is fundamental, and the New Age social gospel of an NGO isn't the Gospel of Jesus, or can you can find a direct reference to it below.

"What will be your focus as head of the U.S. church?

"Our focus needs to be on feeding people who go to bed hungry, on providing primary education to girls and boys, on healing people with AIDS, on addressing tuberculosis and malaria, on sustainable development. That ought to be the primary focus."

As I posted, the Gospel of Jesus Christ ought to be the primary focus, but it didn't rate honerable mention with Schori.

Not in TEC they don't; the Gospel is not part of Schori's "primary focus".

LOL!!!....

According to your post #5 above it is.

Let's face it, you don't like the idea of a woman, especially a woman who escaped the clutching paternalism of the Roman Catholic Church, running the very Church that you couldn't permit yourself to attend.

What's more, she is doing an excellent job as Presiding Bishop; a fact that you really do resent for some reason unknown to the rest of us.

The truth is that whatever she says, you are going to find fault.

You don't know the woman. You've never met her. You've never held her hands in your own and spoken with her. You've never participated with her in the giving and taking of the Eucharist. You've never heard her sermon in person. I have and do vouch for her, personally.

YOU, on the other hand, don't want to know her sincerety and try to avoid it with every comment you make about her.

She is an ordained priest and bishop - a Teacher for Christ's sake! And frankly, I say that she's got a heck of a lot more on the ball than you do.

And you are trying to say that she does not teach or convey the Gospel of Jesus Christ!? On the basis of a few of her answers to a Time magazine reporter!? Or on the basis of a few answers given to a Missouri Synod Lutheran radio interviewer who was Hell-bent and determined to brand her as heretical and apostate!?

What are you, nuts? Oh, Yeah. You are nuts, buddy.

Off your rocker. Out of bounds. It's a free country, so you can write and say whatever you like. You can make a fool of yourself, too. And you are good at that because you practice doing it regularly.

Stop trying to dodge the subject with your "red herring" posts; it's past time for you and TEC to face this:

"What will be your focus as head of the U.S. church?

"Our focus needs to be on feeding people who go to bed hungry, on providing primary education to girls and boys, on healing people with AIDS, on addressing tuberculosis and malaria, on sustainable development. That ought to be the primary focus."

As I posted, the Gospel of Jesus Christ ought to be the primary focus, but it didn't even rate honerable mention with Schori, and you refuse to deal with it.

But do you think He meant to spread that sickness to the rest of the church as well?
