Reform, the Hesbollah tendency within the Church of England, have a press release on their web-site that comes closer than anything I've seen before to saying they are off. It's not blackmail as such because by and large the threats made by blackmailers are unpopular. If you want to check the whole text of their statement please follow the link and then click on 'Latest News and Events' and then 'Press Releases' to go look for yourself.
'We will support mission-shaped expressions of church through prayer, finance and personnel, even when official permission is unreasonably withheld.' In other words Reform are now the self-appointed arbiters of reasonableness and will back church-planting into parishes even where they are not welcome.
'...we can no longer be constrained by an over-centralised and increasingly ineffective control that is stifling the natural development of ministry. If the local Bishop unreasonably withholds authorisation, we will pay for, train and commission the ministers that are needed, and seek official Anglican recognition for them.' In other words if Reform-supporting/sponsored candidates are not recommended for ordination, Reform will ordain them anyway.
'Fellowship is based on the faith “once delivered to the saints”. Global Anglicans observe that the Church of England is increasingly polarizing into two churches: the one submitting to God’s revelation, Gospel-focused, Christ-centred, cross-shaped and Spirit-empowered; the other holding a progressive view of revelation, giving priority to human reason over Scripture, shaped primarily by western secular culture, and focused on church structures ... we can no longer associate with teaching that is contrary to the clear teaching of the Scriptures either doctrinally (for example, on the supremacy and uniqueness of Christ) or morally (for example, on issues of gender, sex and marriage), or church leadership which advocates such teaching.' In other words Reform is the one true catholic and apostolic church. The precise meaning of scripture is now fixed and immutable and it means what Reform theologians say it means now and nothing else. All progressive understandings of revelation up to this day are valid but none thereafter.
'...we can no longer support ministries or structures increasingly marked by the doctrinal and ethical heterodoxy outlined above.' In other words we ain't paying our parish share unless we like what the diocese does with it.
'As Anglicans, we affirm Episcopal oversight for the sake of God’s mission. But it must be ordered for the church’s well-being. This means having biblically orthodox oversight that will teach the apostolic faith, refute error and discipline the wayward. We can, therefore, no longer accept churches being denied such oversight.' In other words if you don't agree with your bishop we'll find you another one.
As a Christianlifelong seeker after truth, pilgrim, nomad, journeyer, student of the Bible, user of human reason and revealed gospel, lover of the outcast and refuser to draw horrid lines in the sand am I being a bit harsh, rude and unfair in saying good riddance?
