Episcopal Bishop Makes Massively Enormous Jump to ...

... Roman Catholicism.

(link)

He states: "I believe God is now calling us to continue our ministry to serve in the healing of the visible Body of Christ in the world. I am convinced our Lord’s deepest desire is for the unity of the Church."

His way of healing the visible Body is - leaving his post.
His way of enhancing unity is - changing sects.

Odd, don't you think?

Yet, I suppose his "conversion" will be far less noted than Prof. Beckwith's - if only because Epispoleanism and Roman Catholicism are so close to begin with.

Turretinfan,

Do you know how Evangelical Anglicans (e.g. J.I. Packer) relate to High Church Anglicans like this bishop? Thanks.

Dear Albert,

I haven't personally known any J.I. Packer-type Anglicans. Have you? I'd be happy to be wrong. I'd be happy to be wrong, but from where I'm standing he's the exception, not the rule in Anglicanism.

The Bishop's remarks, I find quite ironic:

I believe God is now calling us to continue our ministry to serve in the healing of the visible Body of Christ in the world. I am convinced our Lord’s deepest desire is for the unity of the Church.

hmmmmmm, ok, here's how we unify, we cause division within the ranks.

Yes, I do admit it, Jesus preached the same:

Luk 12:49 I am come to send fire on the earth; and what will I, if it be already kindled?
Luk 12:50 But I have a baptism to be baptized with; and how am I straitened till it be accomplished!
Luk 12:51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division:
Luk 12:52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.


If it is indeed the "Lord's doing" then this man has a point.

If not then maybe these Words of Verse fit:

1Ti 4:1 Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;


Except for that, what next?
