The Church of England is trying out a new baptism service which drops all mention of the devil and sin.
Instead of asking parents and godparents to reject the devil and all rebellion against God, it asks them to make a single broad pledge to reject evil.

Link to the full-text Free Republic thread.
60-second Youtube video, if you are in a hurry.
Start by taking the baby out of the Church of England.
Reminds me of the saying “The Devil’s best trick is to make you think he doesn’t exist”.
Isn’t this the church that was formed so that Henry VIII could get divorced and marry another woman?
Since he executed his wives anyway, I wonder what his point was, if it was that.
Reminds me of the saying The Devils best trick is to make you think he doesnt exist.
My thought, too.
Lack of faith here.
I thought this thread had something to do with the Coffee Messiah coffee shop in Seattle that closed back in 2006.
I did find an article about its closing.
Caffeine saves, but in the end it couldn’t save Coffee Messiah, the funky Capitol Hill cafe whose former owner once threw “coffee spells” on Starbucks with the wish that its customers had better taste buds.
The Messiah had a passionate following on the Hill, offering quirkiness and independence — plus tangibles such as live music and vegan food.
I was confirmed in the Anglican Church, the Church of England, when I was 14..
I had to go to weekly classes for at least 6 months before I was allowed to participate..
Part of the ritual are the words “I renounce the devil and all his doings”
Which one was removed?
Satan took control of the CofE, PECUSA, and the ACoC long ago. Some traditional Anglican provinces are fighting back, but the Worldwide Anglican Communion is shot.

1 John 1:8-10
King James Version (KJV)
8 If we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.
9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.
10 If we say that we have not sinned, we make him a liar, and his word is not in us.
I think they need to throw in something like
Honor Diversity with your whole heart your whole soul your whole body and your whole mind...
as a replacement parts....see
All that other stuff is just old hat Fuddy Duddy.
