Lorna Ashworth, Jeremiah of Anglicanism

Mrs Lorna Ashworth has said what many of us have known for years. The difference is, she has been in the best position to know it for real. She was an aide to the Archbishop of Canterbury, but has resigned, claiming the Church of England has now become ‘so liberal’ that it is ‘no longer anchored in the gospel’. She says that instead of talking about sin, heaven, hell, justice and judgement, the state church prefers to discuss social justice and little else.

Truly, this woman is a latter-day Jeremiah, proclaiming judgement on a corrupt religious establishment before God silences it completely.
