Train up a child in the way he should go

The Diocese of Montreal has just had a youth synod; some of the youth were interviewed for Vision 2019 and asked what they would like to see in the Anglican Church of Canada.

Recurring themes were peace, love and an absence and of conflict. Acceptance was a dominant motif with emphasis on acceptance of homosexuals. There seemed to be little understanding of the concept of accepting a person while encouraging a change of behaviour; the thinking appears to be that a person is what he does and therefore, accepting him includes accepting his behaviour.

This is an existential rather than a biblical view, and is one that has probably been absorbed by the children as a result of being immersed in the meandering relativistic ideology of the ACoC where inclusion and tolerance are idolatrously placed above God’s revelation of himself.

Sadly, the parishes that have left the ACoC are thought of as unwelcoming to those with same-sex attractions; it seems unlikely that the youth have ever been exposed to ministries such as the Zacchaeus Fellowship.

  1. David,
    The most difficult aspect that orthodox within the ACoC have to deal with is the impact of subjecting our children to the ministry of the apostate.
    With all the influences of popular culture on their young lives, the last thing they need is to be inculcated with heresy in their own church.
