The Anglican Communion is at a crossroads. A tipping point has been reached on the fulcrum, where things can no longer be kept in balance. A choice must be made between two competing worldviews, which are at heart radically different. The time has come to decide which set of beliefs and practices will be adhered to and taught in the church, and which vision will be offered to the world as the Christian faith. Are we sinners brought back into relationship with God through the atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ, or, are all made in the image of God and therefore inherently good? Is Jesus Christ the only means of salvation, or, is salvation available through a plurality of religions that lead us to the knowledge of the divine presence within each person?
The time for re-formation is at hand.
The calling of the Anglican reformers of the twenty-first century goes beyond setting their own house in order. The famous “Via Media” of Anglicanism brings it close to every other expression of the church. A revived and restructured fellowship of Anglican Churches could readily become a model and a catalyst for the re-formation of the various Christian fellowships worldwide.
