The terms liberal Anglo-Catholicism and liberal Anglo-Catholic refer to people, beliefs and practices within Anglicanism that affirm liberal Christian perspectives while maintaining the traditions culturally associated with Anglo-Catholicism. The social liberalism of liberal Anglo-Catholics can be seen in an association with Christian socialism.
Liberal Anglo-Catholics allow modern knowledge and research to inform their use of reason. A metaphor is that theology for liberal Anglo-Catholics is a "dance" that allows people to slowly grow in an understanding of God. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

You now have direct access to the throne of heaven! No need to go through anyone else or jump through any religious hoops. Jesus alone is your mediator, your bridge See 1 Timothy Now you can work on growing that relationship, making it stronger and deeper. Spend time with him in prayer, praise, and meditation on the Word. The Holy Spirit will guide you and teach you. Also, it is important for you to be part of a local church that believes in the truth of scripture and can help you grow.
Where do you live? Perhaps I can help you find one. What you need to seek out are close relationships with Christians that can help you grow. That means spending time with you and living life with you. I have grown more in my life through the help of others than I ever have on my own. It should be available at most Christian book stores.
I will be praying for you. I am also here to help with any questions or issues you encounter. Please feel free to contact me. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. Basically, the bible says the Jesus came to pay our debt for us and die in our place. We […]. You contributed your response to Marion so that it would be available to others as well for you are hopeful, I assume, that others will enjoy the gift Jesus brought you as you have yourself.
So I also would like to offer an addition that I have found most helpful and comforting. I call it an addition because it goes beyond your response and seem more radically Christian and therefore more likely, in my view, to be what Jesus had it mind.

It certainly has been a gift to me. All that is required of us is openness. Believing is not a requirement.

Believing is itself a gift given by the Spirit who blows where he wills. So your exhortation to Marion to believe sounded to me like imposing an obligation. Believing will or will not happen as God wishes. All we can do is give testimony to what it is like for us and to tell the stories that have inspired us.
The rest is for the Spirit to accomplish. She is up to the task I hope I do not offend by using the female pronoun, and it is very likely that task will not be done our way. John, Thanks for the comment. Just to be clear, I totally agree with you about the Holy Spirit being a gift of God. Indeed He is God gifting Himself to us. Additionally, I also agree that even our faith in God is a gift from Him.
You can see this in Eph However, I do hold that faith and belief are requirements for salvation. While it is given by God, it is absolutely required in order to know Him. Jesus says,. But to be sure, I believe in both. I urge Marion to believe, because Jesus urged people to believe.
Repent and believe the good news! While the spiritual reality is that faith is given by God, the way we perceive that faith being given is by us choosing to follow.
By this I mean to us it seems we choose even though in reality we are chosen. So by all means, I encourage people to choose God.
The realization that they were really chosen by God can come later. You need to be careful about the implications of the theology you are espousing here. It has the dangerous potential, if taken to its ultimate conclusion, of downplaying the importance of preaching the gospel, sharing Jesus Christ and evangelizing the lost. Jesus Himself commands us to go and make disciples the great commission Matt The verbs here are go, make, baptize, and teach.
These actions are intended to tell us we need to do something. Paul expressed it this way:. And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent?
My effort is to bring the good news to all who will listen. The good news does call people to repentance and faith. Only God can do that. However, I must be obedient to preach the truth and call them to it. This article and the comments left have added considerably to my understanding! Thankyou very much for taking the time to write everything you have. Firstly, I have yet to understand how exactly our sins are removed because Jesus Christ died on the Cross.
I feel that this gap in my understanding is indeed a huge abyss, for it is the basis of faith and belief, is it not? I know these are probably common, rather broad and simplistic questions. I really hope I can find answers to my questions soon :!

That being said, thankyou again for this article — I will hunt for more of your work to expand my knowledge! Thanks Jessica. These are very good questions. I can see that God is at work in your heart. I want to address your two questions in two separate responses so that I can spend some time on each. I only have enough time right now to answer the first one, but I will also address the second when I get a chance.
Indeed, I think most Christians probably struggle with understanding this point. I know I used to. My lack of understanding here came from my small understanding of who God is. The more I began to learn about who He is and how great He is, the more this idea of Jesus paying the penalty for me began to make sense. Let me see if I can help some.

This is of course true 1 John , but it is also only one aspect of who God is. God is also just and holy. His wrath alone is mentioned over times!
But, Jesus also spoke about hell more than anyone else in the bible! The very verse people quote above that said God is love 1 John is immediately followed by this passage that talks about wrath and justice. God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son to satisfy His wrath and take away our sins.
Did you catch that last part? In fact, the justice of God is the reason we know what love is. We see that God is love because God is just.
