EV News :: Plans announced for GAFCON 2 and London and Africa offices

“We continue to be troubled by the promotion of a shadow gospel that appears to replace a traditional reading of Holy Scriptures and a robust theology of the church with an uncertain faith and a never ending listening process. This faith masquerades as a religion of tolerance and generosity and yet it is decidedly intolerant to those who hold to the “faith once and for all delivered to the saints”.

Odd but I get the same sort of feeling from GAFCON itself. GAFCON, like the Anglican Church in North America, is composed primarily of Anglo-Catholics and/or high church Arminians, neither of which can truly be called "Evangelical" or "Reformed". True Anglicanism which is faithful to the English Reformation and the magisterial Reformation is not and never will be "Anglo-Catholic" or Roman Catholic-lite. Instead the final authority is Holy Scripture, not the traditions of men.

You leave the commandment of God and hold to the tradition of men." 9 And he said to them, "You have a fine way of rejecting the commandment of God in order to establish your tradition! (Mark 7:8-9 ESV)

I do not nullify the grace of God, for if righteousness were through the law, then Christ died for no purpose. (Galatians 2:21 ESV)
