    The last thing any of us want to think about is eternal torment. And yet there we find it....smack dab in the middle of God's Word, and regularly mentioned by the very One who suffered on the cross for our sins. As much as we would like to ignore it completely....or pretend it doesn't exist....we find ourselves compelled to honestly accept everything God has placed in His Word....even when it has such extreme consequences. Nothing could be further from our natural way of thinking than the doctrine of eternal punishment in hell....and the Son of God suffering on a cross....and...

    The Church of England just recently said no to women bishops. There were howls of outrage from all the predictable quarters, for whom such a troglodyte move is just smack-the-forehead baffling. Now I can understand a vote against women bishops as a preliminary move to try to undo the ordination of women priests. And I can understand a vote for women bishops as the next logical step after having established the practice of ordaining women priests. What I don't get is the affirming the ordination of women priests and opposing them as bishops. The pig, once swallowed by the python,...

    London, England, Jul 17, 2009 / 02:48 am (CNA).- Prominent biblical scholar and Anglican Bishop N.T. Wright has said the Episcopal Church’s recent decision to allow homosexuals to be ordained as bishops will mark a “clear break” with the Anglican Communion and formalizes a “schism.” He also insisted that chastity is not “optional” for Christians. On Tuesday the General Convention of the Episcopal Church (TEC) voted by wide margins to pass a resolution allowing homosexuals to enter “any ordained ministry” in the church. Responding to the news was Anglican Bishop of Durham Nicholas Thomas Wright, a scholar of the New...

    Matt Kennedy's comments... By starting with the solution (Jesus is Lord and Messiah) and going in search of the problem, Wright reduces sin to bad table manners, justification to name tags for covenant fellowship, and salvation to a hope for some vague future reward. Bishop Allison likens this to a gospel in which a drowning person needs no savior, just a swimming coach (25). What H. Richard Niebuhr said about liberal Protestantism is generally true of Wright’s theology on Paul: “A God without wrath brought men without sin into a kingdom without judgment through the ministration of a Christ without...

    I am delighted to be speaking at this first Fulcrum conference, and am very grateful to Francis Bridger and his colleagues for inviting me, and to Graham Kings and the staff here at St Mary's for their hospitality. It is twenty-five years since I last spoke here, at one of the old Islington Conferences, and I trust I shall look back on this day with as much pleasure as I now look back on that one.I want you to imagine for a moment that you have just thrown open the window on a glorious spring morning. A fresh breeze is...
