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.

Pelikan was once a Lutheran but committed apostasy late in life by becoming Eastern Orthodox. The Eastern Orthodox Church is semi-pelagians and teaches a synergistic view of salvation whereby man cooperates with God's energies or graces. Also, the problem of icons and prayers to the saints persists with Eastern Orthodoxy, which is why the 39 Articles say that the eastern churches have erred in matters of faith. (Article 19).

That being said, however, Pelikan's interview on National Public Radio makes valid points against relativism. Pelikan argues that pluralism and relativism are not the same thing at all.

Also, his argument for the use of creeds as authoritative summaries of Scriptural teaching is excellent. Hope you will listen to this engaging discussion.
