from omaha:

"In a speech, a question-answer session and an interview Saturday, Jefferts Schori repeatedly described hers as a faith that is open and not dogmatic."

Is that why four dioceses left TEC last year?

If Schori invites varied viewpoints, those viewpoints best not vary too far from hers.

She recalled an Episcopal ad campaign 20 years ago that said:“He died to take away your sins, not your mind.”

I love this comment....It is what I think as well.

LOL!

Rom 12:2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.

Rom 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

1Cor 6:9 ​Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind,

Col 2:8 Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.

What did Christ say when he was teaching us? This isn't a trick question. Truth revealed to us over time via the Holy Spirit.

Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit - John 14: 12-16

12 "I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14 He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you. 15 All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you.

16 "In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me."

The Work of the Holy Spirit John 16: 12-16

12 "I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. 13 But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. 14 He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you. 15 All that belongs to the Father is mine. That is why I said the Spirit will take from what is mine and make it known to you.

16 "In a little while you will see me no more, and then after a little while you will see me."

Correction my copy edit didn't work the first time.

John 14: 15-19

Jesus Promises the Holy Spirit

15 "If you love me, you will obey what I command. 16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Counselor to be with you forever— 17 the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. 18 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. 19 Before long, the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live."

John,

Put it in perspective. At the very most, these people represent only 5% of the entire population.

What's the big deal?

I'll tell you what it is. Its the rest of us lily-white lily-livered bigots making a big deal out of it. That's what it is.

Those who would condemn them are misusing the commandments and teachings of Christ Jesus, to do what???? To condemn people and to ostracize and shun and lay impossible burdens of guilt upon them, that's what!

Why don't you figure out what is going on here? We make it impossible for these people, actual PEOPLE who are Children of the Most High God, to live their lives without fear of being cut off from nearly all of the people who they love - those people are US - their families, brothers, sisters, moms and dads, friends and neighbors!

Why? Because they grow up with a different view of sexual attraction?????????? 5% of the entire population and your tail is all twisted up about it? Sheesh!

Let them be themselves instead of living in fear of being discovered. Let them take care of each other like everybody else. Let them get married and live together and remove the stigma of rejection that we are trying to wrongfully put upon them.

"Suffer the little children to come unto me."

For Christ's sake!

Since the pope became selected by secret ballot. Well, actually, probably a long time before that. Council of Nicea, maybe. No. surely long before that.

Hey! Maybe it was when the Council voted on which books and selected writings were to be put into something called the New Testament or the bible and deemed divinely inspired.

Nay! Probably long before that.

And the election of the Pope has exactly what to do w/biblical morality?

Well, since I answered your question, quite directly I might add, and since you didn't like that very much, maybe you would be kind enough to restate your question in a way that an answer can be given.

And if you don't think the selection of a pope results in the directed course of interpreted morality for most of the world's Roman Catholics, then you ain't no Roman Catholic.
