Standing Against The Ecumenical Monoculture

God moves in a mysterious way, His wonders to perform; He plants his footsteps in the sea, And rides upon the storm.

Deep in unfathomable mines Of never failing skill He treasures up his bright designs, And works his sovereign will.

Ye fearful saints fresh courage take, The clouds ye so much dread Are big with mercy, and shall break In blessings on your head.

Judge not the LORD by feeble sense, But trust him for his grace; Behind a frowning providence, He hides a smiling face.

His purposes will ripen fast, Unfolding every hour; The bud may have a bitter taste, But sweet will be the flow’r.

Blind unbelief is sure to err, And scan his work in vain; GOD is his own interpreter, And he will make it plain.

--William Cowper

2007-02-20 The Brief

Anglicanism and Catholicism to Reunite?

Here is the interesting story from The Times on the subject.

A Book to Watch

After the success of Richard Dawkins’ book, The God Delusion, Victor J. Stenger’s provocatively titled God: The Failed Hypothesis How Science Shows That God Does Not Exist by is sure to make waves.

Question of the Day: Is Morality Nonsense?

The Puritans thought so.[1] “Civility is not purity, a man may be clothed with moral virtues — justice, prudence, temperance — and yet go to hell. If we want to be pure in heart, then we must not rest in outward purity.[2]” “Civility does but wash a man, grace changes him. . . . Civility is but strewing flowers on a dead corpse. A man may be wonderfully moralized, yet but a tame devil.[3]” “Nor indeed do I know of anything which doth more threaten the undermining of true Christianity . . . than the putting of moral virtues into legal dress.[4]”What do you think?

[1] I do acknowledge that there is a slight discrepancy between what the Puritans said and what they did, but their opinion on this subject stands nevertheless.
