From CATHNEWS (India):
Christians have a mission to transform society and this includes transforming the Church, a Malaysian Anglican bishop says.
“Within the Church itself, we face challenges - people can be from two extremes,” Bishop Andrew Phang said at the Anglican Church’s second South East Asia Provincial Gathering held February 22-24 in Penang.
Elaborating on the gathering’s theme, “Rising Above the Storms,” he said within the Church there is a cold and orthodox group which refuses to have anything to do with society or politics. At the same time, there are “liberals” who pick some scripture and act on it. They base their actions on their emotions even if the act is wrong.
COMMENT: Erm, no. They base their actions on the scripture - you just said it yourself. Really, I expect inconsistency from our leaders but contradicting yourself within a couple of short sentences is taking the art of bishopspeak to new extremes.
Unless, of course, that Bishop Phang, is saying that the words of Jesus Christ in the Holy Gospels are downright "wrong." Surely not!
