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.

"Conservative" Episcopal Bishops Do Not Dissent the Consecration of Mary Glasspool: Primitive Baptists Protest Instead

George Conger reports that the Westboro Baptist Church (Primitive Baptists and Calvinists) protested the consecration of the new Episcopal Bishop in Los Angeles, Mary Glasspool, an openly lesbian woman.

While you might question the rhetoric of the Westboro Baptist Church, which uses the "God hates fags" tag line, theologically they are absolutely right.  God does hate homosexuals and everyone else who is reprobate and unrepentant (John 3:17-18, 36; Ephesians 2:1-3; Romans 9:13).  Everyone who refuses to submit to Jesus Christ as Lord is under God's wrath.  At least Westboro is not afraid to speak the truth.  Why are not  more Reformed churches doing this?  Maybe because they are afraid of public opinion or they have overly emphasized "common grace" to the point of becoming semi-Arminian?
