Hypocrisy on the Anglican Right?
Strictly Bible-based evangelicals who believe in the Incarnation and Trinity, making creeds a test for orthodoxy: that's already odd. Worse: when these Bible-based evangelicals complain that the Anglican left means to willfully contravene Scripture in advocating GC2003's acts, et al.
It seems to me that they cannot avoid going around against Scripturethemselves.
When do you celebrate the Sabbath, as we are clearly commanded to do in the moral law of the OT? Saturday or Sunday? I do not think there is ANY scholarly debate about the period of time the Decalogue picks out--here, if anywhere, the Bible comes close to a plain sense.
You show me where the Bible itself says in black and white the Sabbath commandment is no longer binding on Christians, who may instead simply celebrate Sundays instead of Sundays and Sabbaths or merely Sabbaths. Hmm--can't find it?
Wait--you mean to say when it comes to that commandment, and ONLY that commandment disobedience is a live option? Where in Scripture, in black and white, do we find the qualification and especially the "only."
Hang on--what's that? Somehow the clear call to obedience and Bible-based belief around the Scripture's plain sense can be trumped by nonbiblical inventions? Hmm, interesting.
