Church of England waters down baptism

The Anglican Church has introduced a revised version of its baptismal service that replaces language deemed “inaccessible” to unchurched people.

The current liturgy, which dates to 1998, has Anglican ministers ask parents if they “repent of the sins that separate us from God,” as well as renounce the devil and “rebellion against God.” The new text simply asks them, on behalf of ...

it was logical and followed the article, why are you character assassinating John?
Firstly, the article makes clear why the CoE is doing this, so JY's first sentence is dumb in the extreme.

Also the CoE as a whole is apostate. It is now a 'religion' loosely based on the Bible.

Yep, his comment was utterly stupid.
