A new event on PRELUDIUM's pages: A COMPETITION WITH REAL PRIZES!!!
I am trying to round up all the references in the dissenter's web pages, blogs, newsletters and the like to the now well overused passage from Jude, namely Jude 3: "the faith once delivered (to) (unto) (of) the Saints." This came up because once again from across the divide came the voice of Bishop Ackerman saying, "Forward in Faith North America has endeavored to provide a safe place for orthodox Christians, and has sought a variety of measures, such as Alternative Primatial Oversight, as a means of preserving the “Faith once delivered to the saints.”
So, three prizes:
(i) For the greatest number of references to Jude 3 from material available on the web from the dissenter side of the road.
(ii) The greatest number of references to Jude 3 from the progressive side of the road, OTHER THAN references to the dissenter side's use of the phrase.
(iii) The best argument for thinking the use of this phrase is anything but a bit of verbal bible-babble, the purpose of which is to claim virtue.
Now for prizes: For (i) A copy of HOWL, since finding all those reference will drive contestants mad. For (ii) a year's subscription to The Living Church, since that might cleanse the pallet from having read all that progressive stuff in order to find any reference to Jude 3. For (iii) a copy (used) of the Anchor Bible series on the epistles of Peter, James and Jude on the grounds that maybe the winner might like additional ammunition for her or his argument.
So... I look forward to your investigative work!
