Ephraim Radner, who teaches at Wycliffe College, University of Toronto, posted an essay at The Anglican Communion Institute called, “How To Kill a Christian Church in Four Easy Steps.” It’s very strong worded, and directed at those who push for homosexual ordination in the Anglican/Episcopal church. Here are Dr. Radner’s four steps:
- Define the Gospel of Christ in terms of the smallest social unit and interest possible (e.g. homosexuals and their right to sexual affirmation)
- Define the episcopacy according to the smallest unit possible (e.g. New Hampshire and its gay bishop)
- Drive out anybody who has a larger vision – traditional Christians, evangelicals, Bible-readers, people who study Christian lives and thought earlier than 1968 and farther afield than NY and LA.
- Spend as much money as you can doing this instead of anything else and say this is “mission”.
