++Rowan Misses the Point.

The Archbishop of Canterbury has gone YouTube with his agenda for Lambeth.

He makes it clear that “we don't want at the Lambeth Conference to be creating a lot of new rules” like that nasty Lambeth 1998 Resolution 1.10. He instead wants lots of fellowship, prayer and Bible studies and the like.

And that completely misses the point.

Many Anglicans cannot and – if one gives scriptures about dealing with false teachers any weight – really should not be in full fellowship with the apostates and heretics among the bishops of the Anglican Communion. So how can Lambeth be a big kum-ba-ya?

Oh, that’s right – if one leads in such a manner that those most intent on following scripture on the issue of false teachers and fellowship won’t come.

Of course, that’s not ++Rowan’s intent. But it sure as heck has been the result of his leadership.
