American Episcopalians have again shown their theological liberalism by electing their second openly homosexual candidate for the office of assistant bishop of Los Angeles. Mary Glasspool, currently serving as a priest in Annapolis, MD will become the second openly homosexual bishop serving in the Episcopal Church USA. The Archbishop of the Anglican Communion, Rowan Williams, has said that this raises “serious questions” about the Anglican Communion as a whole. The trouble with the Archbishop’s opinion is that it lacks any theological conviction. Rowan Williams, and many others in both the Church and politics, fail to be clear on matters of truth: when scripture calls something wrong, we must be faithful to orient our convictions around scripture’s teaching. As Dr. Mohler notes on today’s show, Christians must be very careful to avoid massaging theological truth by denominational process and theological etiquette.

The Real Anglican Tragedy
Words From the Fire: Hearing the Voice of God in the 10 Commandments
If God has spoken, then the highest human aspiration must be to hear what the Creator has said. God has indeed spoken, through the Ten Commandments, and Al Mohler explores this revelation of God and the implications for His people. The promise is to hear, to obey, and to live. These “Ten Words” tell us who God is and what His people should look like.
