"He must hold firm to the sure word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to confute those who contradict it."

YET more links coming soon...! including Non-Anglican links
In my previous column I expressed enthusiasm about the level, and indeed the very existence, of debate in the Anglican Communion over the ordination of gay clergy. How healthy it must be, I thought, to be able to air these opinions and pull apart holy small print. Far better to address the issues then leave them unchallenged.
Such a thing, if you recall me saying, has yet to happen in Islam, a religion that espouses jihad. Muslims don’t really want to talk about it even though the concept has been used to devastating effect. Discussing jihad, its meaning then and now, would provide a great deal of enlightenment for both people inside and outside the faith. It would also show that Muslims are unafraid of tackling this controversial ideology. Not talking about it makes Muslims look scared and stupid.
Talking is something that Anglicans are good at. But I kind of wish they’d do something else. For at least four years the threat of a schism has been hanging over the communion and people write about walking apart and falling off fences but the key word here is threat. Unless I’m deaf I’ve not heard the crack of a rupture so it leaves me thinking that this much-hyped schism, which by all accounts should have happened months ago, is the longest and slowest break-up in history.
Read it all.
