Whatever the story behind the scenes of this piece, during our present situation in the Anglican Communion (and especially the episcopal church) it is always wonderfully refreshing to hear a leader hold the people of his faith accountable.

    Welcome back to civvulazashun, Father!

    After my time with the Lubbavitch I can really see that story. One thing we as Christians need to understand- It’s not that we no longer have rules in our lives, but rather that we don’t follow rules for rules’ sake as we might have, but we have rules we follow to please, obey, and express our love for our redeeming Father and God! Otherwise, it’s like a child saying that he is free to prop his muddy boots on the table (or worse) because he’s part of the family! The fact that our heavenly Father does love us gives us all the more reason to leave those muddy boots outside, and wear the house shoes He gives us! (Matt. 22:1-14)

    Thanks, Robert! Your analogy merits much meditation as well. We know of so many who think that, having come to God, there’s nothing left to do… The once-saved-always-saved silliness, for instance. Jesus said we would be held accountable for our deeds in many places. We do indeed answer to a Higher Authority!
