Collect of the Day
O LORD, we beseech thee to keep thy Church and household continually in thy true religion; that they who do lean only upon the hope of thy heavenly grace may evermore be defended by thy mighty power; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

It looks like Dr. Peter Jensen is still alive and well. He is still the general secretary of the Global Fellowship of Confessing Anglicans, even though Glenn Davies recently replaced him as archbishop of the Sydney diocese of the Anglican Church in Australia. Justin Welby, the new apostate archbishop of Canterbury is scheduled to visit GAFCON.
My problem with GAFCON is that the focus is on morality and on multiperspectivalist interpretations of the Anglican Formularies, which consist of the Thirty-nine Articles of Religion, the 1662 Book of Common Prayer, and the Ordinal. Of course, the Homilies play a part in that theological heritage as well. In my opinion conservative Anglo-Catholicism is not Anglican. It is in fact nothing more than Roman Catholic "lite."
It is commendable that the Anglo-Catholic conservatives oppose homosexuality and other immoralities endorsed by the liberals. But dogmatic doctrine is way more important than morality. If good morals were enough, then certainly good Buddhists, good Muslims and good Roman Catholics could earn merits to make their way to heaven apart from Christ. And the recent pope supposedly intimated that even "good" atheists can be accepted by God, whatever that means.
The truth is only the Gospel of Jesus Christ counts as a way of saving faith. (Acts 4:10-12; John 14:6; John 12:48; Mark 16:16-18).
