We don't associate with those people...

I thought I would post a link to a post a friend of mine wrote about his alma mater Pensacola Christian College. It just pains me that institutions calling themselves Christian go to such great lengths to pretend they are the only true Christians in the world and if you have any disagreements with others, it is because they are liberals headed straight to hell. Just reminds us that Donatism is alive and well in America. I love the quote Aaron posted a while back on Donatism from Augustine:

"The clouds roll with thunder, that the House of the Lord shall be built throughout the earth: and these frogs sit in their marsh and croak - We are the only Christians!"

Well this attitude can be found anywhere in Christendom. No on is exempt. Catholics and Orthodox to every kind of Protestant. It is an attitude that refuses to be pigeon holed. Reading Augustine on this again was… comforting.

Luckily there is salvation outside of Pensacola but of course not outside of Christ.

I thought of a good example of this outside of just picking on those ever legalistic Baptists. I heard from an acquaintance about and itinerate preacher he knows who was ministering to an Evangelical Anglican Church within the old walls of Jerusalem. These Anglicans have had to suffer for years the persecution from Pensacola KJV only Baptists…. No wait it was Eastern Orthodox Christians who perpetrated acts including vandalism, harassment, and even some assaults and beatings. This little Anglican church though keeps taking the lickings and pressing on. May God bless them and lift them up.
