Are you an Anglican or an Anglican't?

...or Why Anglicanism is heretical

If one opens the Book of Common Prayer or visits The Church of England website, they will find written in ‘The ministration of Public Baptism of Infant to be used in the Church’ these words:

‘It is certain by God's Word, that children which are baptized, dying before they commit actual sin, are undoubtedly saved.’

This is basically the heretical doctrine of baptismal regeneration.  It is the popish doctrine which proposes the error that the waters of baptism can remove the sinful nature of man as a result of our fall in Adam (otherwise known as ‘original sin’).
The logical conclusion of this is that, once baptized, an individual could live a perfectly sinless life, as they would not be in bondage to sin; furthermore, such a person may have no need of Christ at all.

This is blasphemous and illogical for numerous reasons.  And this is why Anglicanism or Episcopalianism is heretical.   There have been many good Christians and ministers in the C of E.  But, the truth is, they were used of God in spite of the C of E.

At least the Book of Common Prayer recognises that the primary form of baptism for infants should be immersion, unless the child is infirm etc.

May God lead Christ’s sheep out of this mess or to reform this Protestant group for the good of England.  The question every Anglican needs to ask themselves is: Can we remove any sins, purely by the will of the baptizer and through some mystical power of the baptismal waters? Or can only the imputed righteousness through faith in Christ and the power of His redeeming blood, wrought in the soul by almighty God, cleanse a man from sin?

Hebrews 11:6  But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
