SHEFFIELD, UK: Refuting serious doctrinal allegation against conservative evangelicals at Sheffield Diocesan Synod

A serious doctrinal allegation was levelled against conservative evangelicals at Sheffield Diocesan Synod during its March 8th debate on women bishops. The speaker concluding the debate alleged that our complementary view of the inter-relationship between the divine Persons of the Holy Trinity goes against the Church of England's 39 Articles of Religion.

Earlier on, General Synod and Crown Nominations Commission member Jane Patterson, who belongs to Christ Church Fulwood in south-west Sheffield, had articulated very clearly and courageously the complementarian view against women bishops. She said: 'I and many others believe that, in creation, in the family and in His church God made men and women to reflect the relationship and roles of the Trinity, equal but different, the so-called complementarian or headship view. This ordering of relationship is for all time, not changing with the times or culture, and despite what “England Expects”.'
