This is my last on this topic, since I really haven't got a "dog in the fight". I don't want to sound like I'm bashing anyone -- I know several Anglicans, and have had nothing but good, helpful conversations with them -- I've even learned a few things. And you know, they were the ones who translated the KJB, so they can't be all bad ....
What I want to do here is to give everyone access to more information on this, so that they can find out the full story if they're interested.
The original liturgy can be found here
. The Midwest Conservative Journal can be found here
-- they have some good commentary and resources on the issue. One of the posters on PCCBoard is Anglican (he's the one I got all this info from, and is my source for all things Anglican!), and he posted an email on the subject in this thread
My prayer is that this will show the Anglican church, and conservative Anglicans here in the US, that the ECUSA is not just wayward, but that it is apostate. My prayer is also that God will be glorified through this, and that people who may not have been aware of the state of things before will now see that they need to get themselves to one of the conservative Anglican churches that are cropping up throughout the US.
I also pray that God will keep those of us in other denominations in a proper spirit throughout this situation. The last thing we need is for a bunch of conservative Baptists or Presbyterians or just general evangelicals to pop up and start yelling "SEE!! THAT IS WHY YOU SHOULD BE IN OUR CHURCH!! WE'RE BETTER THAN THAT!!!". I know a lot of people who are grieved by this situation, and I am sure that God is not pleased at what is happening.
has also got an extended discussion of this issue. Boy, there are more Anglican blogs than I thought there were!!
