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.

Local Churches to Avoid

Never join a church which hides its beliefs. If there is no formal statement of faith, avoid the church at all costs!

Secondly, if the statement of faith is so bare bones that it says practically nothing, avoid the church at all costs. We vote with our feet. Never give a thumbs up for a church which might or might not be orthodox, evangelical and reformed in doctrine.

Thirdly, make sure that the church still believes its own confession of faith. Often an official adherence to a confessional faith is no guarantee that the church still preaches and teaches the Scriptures from which such a confession is derived.

Sound advice.

This article, if noted, would preclude involvement with ACNA-fudgers and deniers of Reformation theology. I'm aboard with this article.
