Another Note on the Impending Second Reformation

I wanted to make one last comment on the idea of a new reformation, and I'll stay away from any sticky points of doctrine concerning the willful refusal to stay with the Church with full knowledge that it is the Church that Christ instituted.

What I'd like to say is that there's no reason to start a new reformation. The old one is still alive and kicking, and it's right down the street and around the corner from St. John's.

However, if you decide to swim across the Tiber in that direction, be aware that a whole bunch of them are swimming the Tiber join up: Presbyterians, Evangelicals, Lutherans, and Anglicans. Heck there are a fair number of atheists and agnostics as well.

You might also want to take a close look at what's happening in the ECUSA these days. Matters in other Protestant communions are not faring well either.

Reformation is not the answer (as some 6000 denominations evidence).
