GAFCON Bishops Endorse Boundary Crossing

Without dissent, the bishops at GAFCON have just approved the following resolution:

To affirm and endorse the position of the Primates Council in providing oversight in cases where Provinces and Dioceses compromise biblical faith, including the affirmation of a duly discerned call to ministry. This may involve ordination and consecration if the situation requires.

Yes.  Boundary crossing.  Horrors!  (Hmm, maybe I should scare libchurchers this Halloween by going out as a boundary crosser.)

And I heartily approve and am glad to see this was passed with no dissent.  This is in the spirit of Athanasius, who did not recognize the legitimacy of Arian bishops and ordained orthodox clergy to witness in their territories.

Apostate bishops are no bishops.  Their unfaithfulness should and does forfeit their bishoprics.  And the unfortunate in their dioceses should have orthodox shepherds appointed over them to guide them and protect them from heretical wolves.
