High Point Enterprise (Newspaper) - October 5, 1974, High Point, North Carolina A a High Polit enter Orlif saturday. Of Colbor $. 1�7i reluctant witness priest takes position on women s ordination new York apr a theological argument cutting across denominational lines has developed Over whether la women ordained last summer As priests of the episcopal Church were validly invested with that office. Most of the churches House of Bishops have said a no. A but the theological rationale on which they acted is now challenged by the scholar on whose work their decision was mainly based. Be s a roman Catholic. The Rev. Frans j. Van Beeck. A noted theologian at the jesuits Boston College says that although the ordinations were irregular so far As Church discipline goes a they were True Quot there is a Good Case for considering them not Only True but also de Facto valid. That is recognized by the he says adding they Are Quot at any rate implicitly valid and recognizable Quot what gave drama of father Van Beeck s intervention is that his writings on the Issue had been cited by episcopal Bishop Arthur a. Vogel of Kansas City in an guiding episcopal in acting on the David Poling . The position Quot goes against the tradition a not Only of the anglican communion of which the episcopal Church is a part Twat against that of roman catholicism and Eastern orthodoxy. Father Van Beeck says analysis Bishops matter. Bishop Vogel of the churches theological commission concluded in the advisory in which father Van Beeck was cited As an authority for the position that the women had not undergone ordination but Quot Only service Only a father Van Beeck terming himself a reluctant witness because of hesitancy As Quot an outsider to engage in armchair says he so As an ecumenical duty and that Bishop Vogel had mis Miler oseted him. Jas so is amp a �2 Longes the finding of the episcopal Bishops that the ordinations were invalid _ because the Bishops perform by David i Olin ing them defied communal the declaration by president Ford that Richard m. Nixon processes of the Church a a would receive a full. Free Complete Pardon for All acts related pp100 advised is Bis of to his personal involvement in watergate raised More a a reasoning comes problems than it so in ,. Dangerously close to making the political fire storm was a replay of earlier episodes it the a Ishop Merf Delegate of vol tag the White House former president Nixon and the men the Community father Van who gave America so Many sleepless nights. The political Beeck says. He says it also drama will continue whenever the words Pardon clemency fails to recognize Church and amnesty now appear. However there Are some key Quot conflict and division a a As theological suppositions that surround All these terms awl exists among episcopalians must not be lost in the yearning to be Nice to the former on the Issue president our society and the whole of Western civilization has been shaped by the hebrew Christian concepts of gods judgement and mercy. Whether we read deeply in the old testament hebrew prophets or turn to the teachings of Jesus Christ the belief in the need for forgiveness and reconciliation is Central to holy scripture in this special period of jewish holy Days the need for soul searching and confession before god for acts of wrong doing and omission Are the heart of the Temple experience within the Christian tradition one May turn to any of the i liturgical orders of service and president Ford knows per socially the Book of common order used every Sabbath in the episcopal Church and discover that prayers of confession always precede words of Comfort and Assurance of forgiveness hence the concern and the question is it theologically possible and for christians proper to forgive someone ahead of time especially when guilt and wrongdoing Are almost religiously denied former president Nixon Bas never said the words and through his family indicates Resolute denial of any moral failure in the watergate mess. President Ford claimed that or. Nixon had suffered enough was in bad health and needed now More mercy than Justice. A careful Reading of the parable of the prodigal son As told by Jesus reveals a much different sequence for the father could Only restore the prodigal son after he had returned Home and been open and honest about his sin. This United states is not a mean country we Are not an angry people. But Justice and mercy cannot be switched around for the order is in the direction. Judgment is built into our system just As it is forged for centuries into our religious convictions clemency and Pardon follow convictions and that can never be reversed or erased but a deeper problem remains in the matter of or. Nixon. It is sadly but clearly demonstrated in the True Story that is still told in the Kentucky mountains. A country preacher in Boone county got in trouble with a Young girl in town. The deacons of the congregation confronted the pastor with the truth and shortly thereafter fired him. Quot bul wait Quot said my informant Quot they t fire the preacher because he got into trouble with this Young these were understanding thoughtful people not immune themselves from the temptations of life sexual attractions and times of moral collapse. They like their pastor were human beings living in the need of the Grace of god. But what brought about the dismissal was the fact that their preacher lied about the misconduct refused to admit his guilt and caused his own firing. How can a congregation Deal with a liar when one confesses sin and seeks amendment of life a that s what the spiritual pilgrimage is All about. But when one denies the guilt and insists on innocence in a sinful situation we Are left with judgment but Little Chance for reconciliation and the full fruits of forgiveness. And forgiveness even from the White House is invalid when the Pardon precedes judgment the illustrated Bibic Elisha s enemies Are blinded Elisha prayed unto the lord and said smite these people i Pray thee with blindness. And he smote them with blindness. La Kings 6 18 shortly after Elisha had cured Naaman the Leper he began to travel about Israel again eventually reaching the City of Dothan. It was just about this time that the syrian King started another War against Israel. Elisha prophetically revealed the enemy a Battle plans to the King of Israel so that he was Able to avoid capture. Hearing of this the syrian King enraged ordered his armies to capture the Prophet. Troops came by the thousands in the night some in chariots some on horses. Facing them in the morning Elisha prayed that his enemies might be blinded. God answered hts prayer and with the threat to his life removed Elisha led the syrians Back to Samaria where by prayer he restored their sight and sent them away in peace.
