The Tree that Grows in Heaven

At the very end of the Bible, the following appears in the description of paradise: On each side of the river was a Tree of Life which bore twelve kinds of fruit, yielding its fruit each month; and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations. (Revelation 22:2, Positive Infinity New …

Bill Clinton: Too Much Like a Union Meeting

Bill Clinton's performance in his interview with Chris Wallace reminded me too much of some of the things I used to see during union meetings in my old family business. All too often, when the grievance filed didn't have the merit they thought it had, at least one on the committee would blow up in …

Anglicans after Kigali: Facing the Inevitable

The call from the "Global South" Anglican primates for a separate chuch for conservatives in the Episcopal Church is not to everyone's taste, but it is inevitable. It's taken a lot of "Anglican Fudge"--to say nothing about institutional loyalty--for conservatives to remain in the Episcopal Church as long as they have. But the time has …

The Colonies are Actually Good for Something

Any American who has dealt with a British "cousin" (for some of us, at least) has sooner or later detected a note of condesension about those poor rude Americans in the "colonies."

Those of you who follow this site on a regular basis probably realise that ABC's piece on the North Dakota Bible camp is right up our alley as a topic. So we'll get right to it. The first question we need to ask is why American evangelicals use military imagery when they rarely--and we mean …

Be Seeing You, Part II

Last year we noted that the British system of tracking cars everywhere they went reminded us of their own 1960's television show, The Prisoner. It's only getting worse in the old country: now we have street cameras that shout at people who do things not to the authorities' taste. In some ways it's more personalised …

No, Bishop Lipscomb, We Are Not Going to Shut Up

The recent call by Bishop John Lipscomb, Episcopal Bishop of Southwest Florida (a neighbour for the diocese I grew up in,) for a "40 day fast" from blogs will fall on deaf ears here at Positive Infinity. We don't claim to be high on the list of Anglican/Episcopal blogs. We do carry Virtue Online's news …
