Collect of the Day

The Second Sunday in Lent.

The Collect

ALMIGHTY God, who seest that we have no power of ourselves to help ourselves; Keep us both outwardly in our bodies, and inwardly in our souls; that we may be defended from all adversities which may happen to the body, and from all evil thoughts which may assault and hurt the soul; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

The Collect from the First Day of Lent is to be read every day in Lent after the Collect appointed for the Day.

Sean, I don’t know how I missed your comment above:

“The FV is damnable stuff. Interestingly, while Wright’s NPP is another cleverly dressed up outright denial of the Gospel, and in spite of Piper’s refutation of Wright’s position, Piper doesn’t think Wright is advancing another gospel either. I sometimes wonder if the only antichrist men like Piper could identify and mark is if he wore a Miter, a papal stole, and people were lining up to kiss his …., er, ring. My guess is even Rome doesn’t teach another gospel in Piper’s confused mind. I suppose if you’re systematically dedicated to paradox as Piper seems to be, perhaps even Pope Benny and Mother T can be considered brothers and sisters in Christ too. +8-0″ [See Comment #1169, John Piper and His Heretical Friends].

I cracked up when I read this! I am continually dealing with this sort of stupidity and equivocation in Anglian circles. Even so-called “Evangelical” Anglicans will say that Anglo-Catholics who are “conservative” on moral issues like homosexuality and holding to a prima scriptura as opposed to a sola scriptura position on Scriptural authority are somehow “Christian” and, by implication, “saved”–even if they outright deny all five of the solas of the Reformation!
