Anglicans to re-evaluate how they interpret Scripture
The Anglican Consultative Council expressed support on Saturday for a project that will explore the ways Anglicans worldwide read and interpret Scripture.
Initial plans for a project exploring the way or ways the Bible is used in the life of the Anglican Communion were discussed in February 2007 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Since then a more detailed proposal has been drawn up.
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. Additionally, the project is expected to incorporate "previous work done in this field" by some of the Communion's ecumenical partners....
Sounds like Orwellian newspeak to me. Max you said it best and most succinct. This is about reinterpreting terms into a post modern doublethink framework. Every time something is prefixed with High you can assume they must be on some mind altering substance. Because 1+1 always equals anything but 2.
I percieve each day that being a christian is not just about being in the world but not of it. It is also being in the "church" but not of it till Chist calls you out of "her".
Many Anglicans today doubt the Bible, but their Anglican forefathers took care of this re-evaluation once and for all when they stated correctly: "Holy Scripture containeth all things necessary to salvation: so that whatsoever is not read therein, nor may be proved thereby, is not to be required of any man, that it should be believed as an article of the Faith, or be thought requisite or necessary to salvation. In the name of the Holy Scripture we do understand those canonical Books of the Old and New Testament, of whose authority was never any doubt in the Church."
Too bad this isn't good enough for many Anglicans today, but many Christians today don't like to submit to the Bible as sufficient.

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.
