The Episcopal Church and the Nigerians

I have often noted that while 3rd world churches are on the ascendancy, many European and North American churches are drifting into irrelevance. Philip Jenkins wrote a very informative book on the subject: The Next Christendom: The Coming of Global Christianity.

Today I noticed that Charles Colson reflected on how the Anglican churches in Africa are finding their voice. Numerically they far outnumber the Anglicans in the Northern Hemisphere. And they are typically more biblically sound. The whole brouhaha over the U.S. Episcopal Church consecrating an openly homosexual man as a bishop has given the third world Christians an opportunity to make a true confession of faith.

I thought the Nigerian Anglican bishop's comment was interesting: "Unity of doctrine must precede unity of worship (communion)."
