“The national church has kind of moved in the direction of saying that Jesus Christ is a way, but not the way,” he said. “And that has been a cause of some problems for a number of people in the diocese.”
“Our contention is that we have kept the faith, we have stayed within the historic faith of the church and that our diocese, in the decision it has made to disaffiliate with the national church, is not ‘leaving’ the church,” Gibson said.
James Gibson+ may sound like he is using harsh words, but he is merely restating something the Presiding Bishop has taught as shown in the video clip below,
The Presiding Bishop would stand condemned under XVIII of the Articles of Religion if they had any meaning for the Episcopal church. For those of you who need a reminder,
XVIII, Of obtaining eternal Salvation only by the Name of Christ.
They also are to be had accursed that presume to say, That every man shall be saved by the Law or Sect which he professeth, so that he be diligent to frame his life according to that Law, and the light of Nature. For Holy Scripture doth set out unto us only the Name of Jesus Christ, whereby men must be saved.The Articles tell it like it is in that they reflect what is found in the Gospel.
