The more Archbishop Williams speaks, the deeper the hole he digs for himself. His latest comment is unbelievable. "Christian doctrine offends Muslims." Really??? I had no idea. His solution? "An alliance of the two faiths for the common good." Amazing. There are not words to respond to this drivel. I'm sure Muslims would just love to make an "alliance" with a church which ordains gay and female bishops. BTW--This is the same Archbishop who says the UK must accept the reality of Sharia law.

The Evangelical Free Church (EFCA) in which I was raised, has tweaked their doctrinal statement. My former pastor, now an official in the EFCA (and a man who was a great pastor to me when I was becoming Reformed) once called the Free Church doctrinal statement "the Apostle's Creed rewritten by Norwegian farmers." In any case, the new statement closes some doctrinal loopholes (probably preventing future doctrinal issues) but retains its premillennialism.

Just a thought . . . If the EFCA can re-write their doctrinal statement to deal with current doctrinal controversies, perhaps it is time for the NAPARC churches to consider a new confession of faith for North American Reformed and Presbyterian Churches? I'd love to see a new Reformed/Presbyterian ecumenical confession which unites our churches, but it won't happen in my lifetime.
The creator of the G. I. Joe figures has a new venture--Bible action figures. You can get David, Jonah, Samson and other accessories. Click here: G.I. Joe creator finds Bible rich in action figures -- OrlandoSentinel.com. If he really wants to make a few bucks, he can utilize Delilah, Jezebel and the Moabite women to create a biblical equivalent of Barbie. I'd also like to see a line of "Televangelist" action figures. Think of what you could do with a Benny Hinn action figure . . .
Surely, the G. I. Joe inventor can't do better than the guy who came up with a Job action figure complete with sores (Click here: Riddleblog - The Latest Post - Incredibly Tacky Biblical Action Figures).
