CHURCH OF ENGLAND TRAINING PRIESTS TO USE DR WHO IN SERMONS AND ADAPT TO CULTURE


Anglican church leaders are encouraging clergy to study the Dr Who science fiction series to learn about its religious parallels with Christianity and to use it in sermons. The Church of England appears to be getting desperate to bring back under-16s --whose attendance fell by almost 20 per cent between 2000 and 2006.

Excerpts from Telegraph.co.uk: From "They have been urged to use examples from the programme in their sermons in an attempt to make Christianity more relevant to teenagers.

"At a conference last week, vicars watched Doctor Who clips that were said to illustrate themes of resurrection, redemption and evil.

"It analysed the similarities between the Doctor and Christ, and whether daleks are capable of change."

When will liberals learn that when they attempt to adapt Christianity to the culture they will fail miserably, and always end up looking absurd to youth. It is precisely the counter-cultural message of Jesus that is attractive to young people who are immersed in a culture of hedonism and nihilism.

"The Rev Andrew Myers, vicar at St Aidan’s in Leeds, attended the course and said that he would use Doctor Who in future sermons.

The Rt Rev Tony Porter, Bishop of Sherwood, said it was vital that clergy adapt to the culture around them.

"And the people will be like the priest..."(Isaiah 24:2)--it is no wonder that so many are perishing when their foolish leaders have altered Christ's message to fit in with the world.
