Gal 5:16 This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 22 But the FRUIT of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, FAITH, 23 Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law. 24 And they that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit. 26 Let us not be desirous of vain glory, provoking one another, envying one another"

The most accurate doctrine of ALL - is that which is provided by the Holy Spirit. HE is the guide!
"Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come"
"Dr Williams admitted: "Theology has itself in some ways drifted out of the intellectual mainstream. On the whole theology doesn't figure"
This is the point at which we can observe the Liberals fail to comprehend the Truth of Scripture. Religion to them essentially becomes a human pursuit by intellectual and academic hypothesis. Faith becomes an entirely intellectual assent. Thus Scripture itself becomes irrelevant or subservient to the academic and his perceived "expertise."
17 "For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not with wisdom of words, lest the cross of Christ should be made of none effect. 18 For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written, I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20 Where is the wise? where is the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish the wisdom of this world?" 1Cor 1.
Jim Lincoln wrote: So, whatever you think of the KJV you wouldn't give it American high school students.
Your arguement here is untenable Jim. If you go back to the 19th century the english vernacular used then was basically the same as we use today. The church grew and people were taught and the Holy Spirit used His sword THE KJV greatly. - perhaps we might add greater than today.
The problem with modern versions is not vernacular but content. The NIV for example was put together with contributions of known heretics, (Westcott and Hort) and eclectic Greek texts that are not ratified by many.
This church has gone the evil way of the C.of.E this is not just plain old heresy but blind stupidity. The only way they can put this abomination in the pulpit is to reject Holy Law.
Jude 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.
All Satan's efforts in these times are seeking to restrict true religion, ie Christianity. Not just abominations but also the alternative religion in churches called Liberalism. It is all down to disobedience which is sin, the sinful state of the human race. The politics and legislation we get today is aimed at rejection of the Bible, thus the Scriptures become more and more irrelevant to society. Freedom of speech is only allowed to the Liberal non-Christian majority. Remove the LAW and the crime becomes legal is the motto of todays administrations.
"18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;"
This is Liberal theology! This is Politically Correct fawning over man's culture which is an abomination!
This of course is modern Anglican "church"(?) worship of, idolatry of the creature and the denying of GOD! J C Ryle will turn in his grave at this satanic insult in his old home.
2Thes 1:8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;"
"The Bible in the Life of the Church is a three-year project that will involve wide, regionally based, grassroots participation from around the Anglican Communion. It will also draw on the work of academic biblical scholars and theologians"
Yes! But will the Holy Spirit be there?
Jo 16:13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth:"
The pollution of Liberalism has already destroyed their ability as a church to see the truth.
Mat 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
Mat 7:20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

But JPR GOD said..... Lev 20:13 If a man also lie with mankind, as he lieth with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination: they shall surely be put to death; their blood shall be upon them."
And... Lev 18:22 Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination."
And... 1Kin 14:24 And there were also sodomites in the land: and they did according to all the abominations of the nations which the LORD cast out before the children of Israel."
And... Rom 1:27 And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompence of their error which was meet. 32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them."
Now the Government are not going to shut down the Bible are they. If they do then GOD will shut them down.

Neil Ref your insulting attitude, Do YOU need WND, politicians, legislation or anything else to illustrate to you the way which the US nation is going, prior to making a remark about the obvious nature and tendencies of this Democratic government???
"Members of the U.S. House today approved a plan to create a federal "hate crimes" plan that will provide special protections to homosexuals and others with alternative sexual choices, but leave Christian ministers and pastors open to prosecution should their teachings be linked to any subsequent offense, by anyone, against a "gay.""
Welcome to the United States of Sodom and Gomorah???
Democrats = Anti-God, Anti-Bible, Anti-Christ???
Rom 1:24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
"She started promoting homosexual lifestyles and suggesting those who had objections should sort out their prejudices. She said, âWhat makes you all think that to be heterosexual is natural?â It was at that point that I walked out.â"
Again we see that the modern zeitgeist of Liberalism is doing Satan's work and removing authority and decency from our institutions. There is no doubt this is an increase in the war between the forces of darkness and the true church. Bringing into our schools this kind of evil muck is Satan's way of reaching the future of our nations and changing society for the worse. Thus Rom 1:32 Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them." Is true of Society today and prophetical of the way that Liberalism has destroyed moral decency in church and state.
