    I do not understand why Mr. Klavan is so afraid of the Catholic Church.  The idea that Henry VIII’s church in England was merely another Catholic church as valid as the Catholic Church based in Rome was propaganda from the English government to justify the robbing of Church property under Henry.

    My fairly recent (2019) search for a church paralleled that of Hot Gandalf‘s.  I had been raised Christian, but wasn’t baptized until 2019.  My decision to be baptized was strongly influenced by Andrew Klavan’s memoir The Great Good Thing.

    Like Drew, I wasn’t especially interested in being beholden to the Pope (although I might feel differently if Benedict were still the Pope), but wanted the focus on the Gospel – in my journey, I had read the entire Bible, but what affected me most was the consistency and clarity presented in the Gospels.  Thus like Drew, I sought a church that focused on the Gospels, not on the generic spirituality of the sort promoted by say, the Unitarian Church, as pleasant and joyful as that formless, directionless spiritual fog might be.  Reading the Gospels convinced me what Peter figured out as well: Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the living God. (Matt 16:16)

    I also knew that the Episcopal Church had gone through considerable turmoil as much of it had embraced modern cultural decline.  Thus I searched following the same trail as Drew did – I found the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA), and used its resources to find a nearby church, and from the first Sunday I walked in, Shepherd’s Heart Anglican Church has been everything I could have asked for.

    So as I was listening to the Andrew Klavan Show podcast while I walked through the local Costco, when (@39:45) he came to the part about finding the Anglican Church in North America, I threw up my arms in victory, and jumped up and down – Yes!

    What a Great Good Thing the Andrew Klavan Show is.

    We know that Jesus was a guy completely because He was circumcised.  See Luke 2:21.

    I guess he doesn’t realize that it does not become the true Presence in the Anglican Church.  You have to go to the Catholic or Orthodox Church.
