Robin G. Jordan’s “Turning Point” article illuminates very well and even further the malevolent, spectral menace that is working overtime to hold western-oriented Anglicanism culturally, ecclesially, morally, spiritually, and intellectually captive.
An ongoing, especially intensive course of reading, marking, learning, and inwardly digesting the Word of God along with concentrated, seven-times-daily (see Psalm 119: 164) prayer, Holy Spirit-directed works of faith, hope, love, and mercy, and weekly attendance at worship must be our primary rule of life. Such ought to be the Father’s corrective of our desiring the wandering sheeps’ multivariate paths.
Many in western churches tend toward:
When you believe in things
That you don’t understand,
Then you suffer,
Superstition [subjective hyperculturalism*] ain’t the way
— Superstition – Stevie Wonder —
Instead, abiding under and within the abundant grace of our LORD God, with boldness we can proclaim “I know the one I have faith in, and I am sure that he can guard until the last day what he has trusted me with.”
