Then we come to my other world, that of the inclusive church. The church that has abolished sin, and hence the need for a saviour. A faith where Jesus is just a way, a metaphor and an example - and no more true than another way. The church that confirms us ‘just as we are’ - and leaves us that way.
What do we have here but false shepherds doing their best to undermine foundations, leaving behind them a creaking shed, so that when the waves come in and the wind blows the whole rotten edifice will crash down.Read it all here.
I was reading about sheds like that in Luke 6.46-49 a week or so ago. "Why do you call me 'Lord, Lord,' and not do what I tell you?" says Jesus. Then he says that everyone who
- comes to me
- hears my words
- does them
Creaking sheds that crash down happen because of those who hear His words but do not do them.
I hear some rather ominous creaking coming from the Anglican shed these days.
