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.

Peter Toon: Anglo-Catholic Dissimulator: Part 2

In addition to Peter Toon's dissimulation on the doctrine of justification by faith "alone" which I noted in  Part 1 below, Toon was also a member of the Prayerbook Society, USA.  Unfortunately, the prayerbook that the PBS USA promotes is none other than the 1928 Book of Common Prayer, which contains prayers for the dead, prayers of oblation prior to the consecration of the elements and other departures from the Reformation theology of the 1552 and 1662 books of common prayer.  

Moreover, the Anglo-Catholics in the US, as Toon openly admitted in The Churchman article on justification, completely revise the meaning of the Thirty-Nine Articles of Religion, which misreading is not in agreement with the plain meaning of the text or in agreement with the original historical background of the Articles.  The Anglo-Catholics completely violate the Black Rubric by lifting up and adoring the bread and wine as if they were the body of Christ.  Such adoration of mere creatures or created things is idolatry plain and simple.

My confidence in Church Society and its new president, Lee Gatiss, is therefore greatly lessened.  Reformed and Evangelical Anglicans should speak up and challenge Mr. Gatiss on this dissimulation on the part of his leadership and on the part of Church Society in the past and the present.
