Sydney Morning Herald: Anglicans’ new group denounces liberalism

Posted by Kendall Harmon

The plan for a fellowship of confessing churches and a council of primates was adopted yesterday, the final day of the Global Anglican Future Conference, which had been called by dissenting Anglican leaders from Africa and parts of North America and Australia.

When the final communique was signed, the conference broke out in spontaneous applause and singing. Speaking to the Herald from Jerusalem, Dr Jensen said the development was "groundbreaking" and would likely help preserve Anglican unity, rather than destroy it, by providing an ecclesiastical structure by which breakaway dioceses opposed to liberal thinking could remain within the Anglican fold.

"We are in a battle for ideas between the liberal wing who want to export their ideas to the rest of us and the Biblical Anglicans. These 1000 leaders are standing for the Bible and the Gospel of Jesus Christ and reasserting that He is the way to God. It's a moment of huge spiritual impact."

Read it all.
