    From the link:

    Inclusion + We affirm a re-emerging scriptural tradition that instructs us that God’s table must be open to all the People of God. We practice inclusion of all expressions of God’s creation: race, sex, gender identity, age, culture, sexual orientation and faith journey.

    (My bold)

    I wonder if those were included when he started out though.

    I was raised Lutheran. It does not seem that long ago that it would have been unimaginable that some of the American denominations could have a similar positions.

    Basically, modern expressions of a church that teaches heresy now!

    Ouch. I am assuming that they mean "full inclusion" rather than our doors are open to you who wish to seek to conquer sin and temptation in their lives.

    I wonder too Ann. I am sure Dr. Graham would not deny anyone the opportunity to come and "fight the good fight" of dealing with the sin and temptations in their lives. However, I do not think he would endorse a complete inclusion to just sin without acknowledgement and the desire to be obedient.

    I would bet that Dr. Graham does not endorse or share what your "vision" of his position precisely is.

    I don't know what you mean by this. I know little to nothing of JI Packer.

    They would be upholding the reliability of the scriptures as written/inpiried revealtion from God to us, agree with Trinity, saved by Grace/faith alone, and would be refomed in salvation, and probably A mil in end times scenerios...

    Botherspme area would be in holding to infant naptism...

    They would see the Bible as inspired/infallable word of God to us, agree with Trinity, and saved by grace alone/faith alone, but also hold to infant Baptism, and having a church leadership more like bishops a RCC/Lutheryns do...

    Sorry folks, 'evangelical Anglican' in the OP is not referring to some obscure sect that Salty googled. As Yeshua1 is explaining, it's Anglicans who are evangelical (low church).
