This from an Episcopal Bishop?!?

ANAHEIM, CA – Episcopal Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori says it’s “heresy” to believe that an individual can be saved through a sinner’s prayer of repentance.

In her opening address to the church’s General Conference in California, Jefferts Schori called that “the great Western heresy: that we can be saved as individuals, that any of us alone can be in right relationship with God.”

The presiding bishop said that view is “caricatured in some quarters by insisting that salvation depends on reciting a specific verbal formula about Jesus.”

According to Schori, it is heresy to believe that an individual’s prayer can achieve a saving relationship with God. “That individualist focus is a form of idolatry, for it puts me and my words in the place that only God can occupy.”

-The Bible says immersion baptism is required. Bit by bit satan has watered down Christ’s message till it’s effect is severly diminished. This message encourages me but at the same meeting they are trying to pass support for homosexual-marraige. Oh well, guess we can’t expect too much. Aaron Koch 2012
