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. In particular, the new ceremony removes promises that parents and godparents had previously made to repent of sin and to “reject the devil.” The archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, supports the change.

Even though attendance at British Anglican congregations is generally quite low, many unchurched parents still wish to have newborns baptized. “In some instances,” the Anglican Liturgy Commission notes, “there are few people present [at a baptism] who have any real understanding of the Church’s language and symbolism.”

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. But with JY's nonsensical insistence that any 'church' that pays lip service to worshipping Christ must be a true church, he comes up with the ludicrous idea that unchurched parents and godparents should attend the CoE.

Yep, his comment was utterly stupid.

Then you agree with the Church of England not making the unchurched parents and godparents promise to "repent of sin" and to "reject the devil"? You must if you stated that my comment is stupid.
