In this podcast we look at events happening in the Church of England and think about whether this means ‘game over’. How should orthodox Christians respond?

Greetings in the Precious Name of our LORD and Saviour, Jesus Christ.
Very much agreed with much / most of what you said.
It all takes me back to 1968 and the 1st National Conference of Evangelicals and the Saturday evening meeting chaired by John Stott and the passionate preaching of Dr Martyn Lloyd Jones, Calling Evangelicals to come our to ‘Doctrinally Mixed’ denominations and to come under the umbrella of what, in those days, was called the British Evangelical Council.
John Stott has been proved wrong. MLJ has been proved right, BUT still the Evangelical have still NOT ‘come out from among them’ and become separate.
May I suggest you revise by reading Esther through one more time, please!
May th egood Hand of our God be upon you! Yours because His, David
Regarding the 2 Corinthians 6 v 14 reference, the Weymouth translation adds like Oxen yoked with Asses. My study Bible has a cross reference to 1 Kings 18 v 21(Elijah and the prophets of Baal). Verse 17 has a cross reference to Isaiah 52 v 11 (surely in Paul’s mind) which is very strong in the NET Bible. We looked at this in our weekly Bible study, and I felt both references were in the Apostle’s mind and fitted the situation in the Corinthian church.
It is not just the C of E which is affected, other denominations and groups will face similar challenges. I think you are correct in using the words heresy and evil.
