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.

Re: Fwd: Posting and Domination

Mr. Turner:

I don't recall condemning anyone.  What I said was that Anglo-Catholicism preaches another gospel.  Since this is the policy of your blog, I will be posting your e-mail to me to notify others.
There is nothing in the policy about posting answers to points raised.  All of my comments have been scholarly and to the point.  Even in my comments to the transexual, which you seem to think is a "Christian", I clearly pointed out that the Bible forbids self-mutilation and that God creates men as men and women as women.  Do you really think God makes mistakes?
Sadly, VirtueOnline and the new province you are so proud of is simply another liberal church which preaches another gospel and has no idea whatsoever what Scripture teaches.

I do not compromise.  Roman Catholics, Anglo-Catholics, and the Eastern Orthodox are condemned in the 39 Articles as "in error."  While I do not have the authority to judge where souls spend eternity, I do have the right to condemn false doctrine and I will continue to do so. 

However, I do thank you for admitting that you are biased in favor of heresy, which only confirms that VirtueOnline is apostate and sworn to uphold a false gospel.  I for one am not intimidated by your false authority.  If anything, you have only made me even more determined to sound the alarm and preach against AC-NA and your website.
Again, thanks for the heads up.

> b) engage one issue at a time. If you wish to write 5 pages, please

> All VOL members should feel free to post and express their opinion.

Am howling here. Since when has my name or posts been visible to the Virtual Windbag and Chaoticians?

Sheesh, I got honourable mention from Mr. Turner.

Am howling here.

While I am not as harsh as Charlie, I do share the view that it is important to get the word out about this Virtual windbaggery, reductionism, and inconsistency.

Virtue is a puff-o-phile, revisionist, non-theologian, and dangerous for young people needing the well-considered Gospel of the Reformation.

I suspect Virtue to be a charismatic, if truth were to be told--and it's not. He's an authorized agent of defense for the ACNA agenda.

His recent posts on Nashotah House, TESM, and, of course, his unanalyzed ACNA reveal his bias.

Weber's discernment isn't high while his palaver is--as in the email--it's substantial. The other moderater, the AC-man, Paul Turner, is worse.

I surprised the Windbags used my name. Must be a concern to them. Howling here.
