Here is a perfect example of why slippery slopes are slippery; and that is the best thing we can say for them. As reported in LifeSite News:
'“The State allowed the possibility of divorce and remarriage for a long time before we did as a Church. Not only do we now bless such unions, we actually remarry divorced people in our churches,” he said. “Some people have changed their minds for example on women’s ministry and same-sex relationships when they have experienced the ministry of a woman priest in the one case, or discovered their own son or daughter to be gay in the other,” he said.“Will we, as a Church, eventually adopt the same approach as far as same-sex relationships are concerned, as we have done about remarriage after divorce, or is gay marriage in a different category from the remarriage of divorced people?” He added that whatever the answer, he hopes the Church’s “discussions can be charitable.”'
Let's see if I understand him correctly: Because certain Canterbury Club Anglicans have been unfaithful and disobedient to God in the past, and have a precedent for related apostasy, they should get even worse and more rebellious against God. Hey! He forgot to mention abortion as an example of this "evolution."
He went on to say, about assisted suicides:
'There is not just one Christian viewpoint on “same-sex relationships” or “assisted dying,” he said. Instead our attitudes are shaped by upbringing, education and which texts of the Bible one prefers.'
See why the Continuing Church is always more necessary than we were the day before?
