ACNA Fail – Part 1

The “conservative” Anglicans in the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA) just ordained another woman to be a priest(ess). Perhaps they need to be love-bombed with copies of the forthcoming Why Ministers Must Be Men.

It is not surprising that ACNA is doing this, because it has been clear from before its inception that this is an issue where various member bodies held the innovative and unorthodox position. It is, however, disappointing as it is something that will tear this body apart in the future if it is not addressed and changed.

At bottom, it points out that much of ACNA is simply warmed over 1970′s Episcopalianism minus the gay stuff. Arminian, charismatic, not Reformational, not terribly committed to living the Bible despite words to the contrary, and thus, blown about here and there by the culture. We need to inject more Van Til, Leithart and Jordan into this hybrid of theologies, or it will spin into oblivion.
