R.I.P. CHURCH OF ENGLAND
The Director of Mission and Public Affairs of the Church of England has decided the church needs to issue an apology to Charles Darwin. I knew things were bad there, but I did not know they were this bad. It is over for the C.O.E. It is dead. It may flop around for a while in death throes, but it is dead, a smelly rotten corpse instead of the Body of Christ.
John Murray wrote "The moment we posit the existence of anything independent of God in its derivation of factual being, in that moment we have denied the divine sovereignty." The C.O.E. has chosen to deny the Creator, the Divine Sovereignty.
What a shame to the memories of great Anglican theologians of the past, of men who bled and died to bring the Bible to England in English, to establish freedom to read the Bible and worship this same Creator. What a shame to men of that church who have preached and written great books, sermons and hymns for the glory of this Creator, now denied. Like a bad son, the current bishops have brought shame and dishonor on their spiritual fathers.
If the Apostle Paul could only come to London. He could dust off his speech to the pagan Athenians: "God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands" (Acts 17:24).
Paul also said the Creator called on all men everywhere to repent. Church of England, heed the call.
