"Nevertheless, so long as the Church of England sticks firmly to the Bible, the Article, and the principles of protestant Reformation, so long I advise you strongly to stick to the Church. When the Articles are thrown overboard and the old flag is hauled down, then, and not till then, it will be time for you and me to launch the boats and quit the wreck" J. C Ryle. I think it's time to heed an advice like this as far as this church is concern.
