  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.

  1. Angelus

    I suspect I am not on my own in this. I have found that since I have joined CF there is more heresy about than I was ever aware of, and a great deal of this heresy basically builds down to the basic heresies that were understood in the early centuries of the Christian Religion. As a fairly easy Anglican one is inclined to think that we have moved on, but sadly no. Arianism is one of those that seems to rear it's ugly head with unrelenting frequency.

The confronting yes is the yes that we...
  3. Advent is

    For some years I have played with the idea that Advent is the Season of Expectation, of the looking and the longing for the return of Jesus, mirrored in our waiting for the joy of Christmas Day.

I was a little tired of hearing Oh Little Town of...
  4. Filioque

    I am an Anglican. The Anglican Church says or doesn't say the filioque, it is certainly as the Nicene Creed is printed in The Book of Common Prayer 1661-2. I have been research it for some time, and as a result of that research I have come to a position where I no longer say it, and realistically I don't think it should be there at all. There are three issues that the argument swings around. Those issues are: The matter of Procedure - as in how did it get there, was that procedure sound or...
