Vatican told Mary document undermines Anglican teaching
The evangelical group Church Society has written to the Vatican rejecting the ARCIC report, Mary: Grace and Hope in Christ, published earlier this year. They feel the work by the Anglican Roman Catholic International Commission undermines the historic Anglican teaching which Church Society seeks to uphold. Mary: Grace and Hope in Christ attempted to offer a compromise to Anglicans and Catholics over the role of the Virgin Mary.
It stated that Catholic teachings on the Immaculate Conception and the Assumption of Mary into heaven are consistent with Anglican teachings of the Bible. But David Philips, General Secretary of Church Society, disagrees with this claim and says that ARCIC have ‚Äėcaved in‚Äô on any Anglican understanding of Mary and ‚Äėbacked up‚Äô the Roman Catholic understanding instead.

Very true. The Bible alone should dictate a congregation. And when that happens, the Roman Catholic view of Mary is refuted without failure.
