One of the Church of England’s most outspoken bishops is to resign a decade early after years of disenchantment with the liberal drift of Anglicanism. The Bishop of Rochester, Michael Nazir-Ali – the Church’s only Asian diocesan bishop – is planning to devote much of his time to helping persecuted Christians in Muslim countries such as Pakistan and Iran.
When I think of most Christian denominations today I find that this comment is appropriate:
I hope that my fellow Anglicans won’t give up the ship just because the skipper is drunk out of his mind. We all need to remember that any church is its fellowship of believers, not the titular “head.”
