Congregationalism Can Be a Good Thing
Or at least the best choice amid a myriad of evils. My friend Peter Ould is not happy about the ordination of a pastor for an Anglican congregation outside the authority of the Church of England. My question is why on earth, given the obvious and apparent trajectory of the English church, would any orthodox congregation want to yoke its minister to it?
We Anglicans may be constitutionally averse to independence and/or “congregationalism” but independence is far far better than being in direct communion with bishops who either approve of or will not forcibly oppose soul and body destroying heresy. Why would anyone actively Create Bonds to so called leaders of that sort? Congregationalism is Always Better than exposing the souls in your cure to the legally enforced authority of bishops who are false teachers themselves, actively support false teachers, or who will not stand for truth.
