Anglicanism and Presbtyerianism: 3 Watershed Issues

I have come to see that there are three watershed issues when it comes to discerning which is a more biblical and faithful way of doing and being church, the Reformed, Presbyterian way or the Anglican way. I have blogged on one of these already, and will post on the other two soon.

Maybe these are not “watershed issues” for everyone struggling with such matters, but they have been such in my experience.

1. Is the church the incarnate body of Christ on earth, or not?

2. Is the liturgy in service of Scripture, or Scripture in service of the liturgy?

3. What is the nature of the church’s connection to the apostles? Is it primarily in terms of doctrinal content (in conformity with Scripture) or is it more of a living, organic, even embodied connection to the past?
