More on the Episcopal Church

Posted in Christ and Culture,Christian Theology by sosipater on January 4, 2007

There is an interesting article in the Washington Post about the two Episcopal congregations that have voted to leave the National Church organization.  Interesting article in that it seems more and more that the media and popular culture associate conservative Christians as “Charasmatic”.  I did not know alot of the things about these two congregations until I read the article, which you can find here.

Another thing brought out in the article is that as more and more historically orthodox Christian denominations increase in their liberality when it comes to the faith, more commonality is found across denominations with those that share core beliefs. 

The underlying question for me seems to be one of origins.  How did this happen?  How did Christian churches one day wake up and say, “Hmm, Jesus?  Oh, its not very important that Jesus died, was resurrected, and rose again.  Lets just try to live together tolerantly for the betterment of mankind”.  How did such a radical message get unradicalized so thoroughly?   Readers, any ideas?
