    September 30 is the day of reckoning for all Anglicans.

    This meeting will reveal each TEC Bishop’s choice to be true shepherds/sheep or false.

    Each of them and each of us must choose what we will do.

    It is the same old choice as in Elijah’s time – whether we will follow God or Baal. Elijah asked, “If the Lord is God, follow him’ but if Baal (sex, flesh, power, money, false religion) is god, follow him.” (I Kings 18:21)

    Elijah’s question still stands for every believer from the leadership on down.

    It is every person’s free choice. Everything we give ourselves to is an act of worship. Every day, every moment, every thought, word, deed, breath of our existence, we give an answer to Elijah’s question deciding who or what we will worship.

    The right choice is always to follow God wholeheartedly and to deny the flesh, world, devil. We always must count the cost, it is not always painless, but can be very hard to wrench oneselves away from the relationships and habits that bind us.

    But, the rewards of following God make the destructive offerings of Baal as dung, says St. Paul. Many the true Elijahs are among us. They know God’s power to deliver. The true prophets are not necessarily clergy. They are people who speak and live God’s Word with clarity, conviction, courage, compassion. Their words and lives align and agree with the Church of the Ages, the Global Church, the Scriptures. They lift us to Christ and bring His power and love into our lives. Many of them post here and on the other orthodox blogs.

    I pray God will speak through His true prophets in New Orleans, city of sin, calling for a decision of TEC Bishops, Priests, laity, all Anglicans.

    Those who decide for God choose to live the crucified and resurrected life and reveal Christ to the world. These are the true prophets and people of God.

    PS – Besides I Kings 18:21, I’d recommend the good bishops, leaders and laity of TEC and the AC read Numbers 33:55 and 56.
