By 2015, the breakaway group had won a huge victory in the courtroom of Dorchester County Judge Diane Goodstein, who awarded them everything they were asking for, including the "Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina" itself.
Goodstein cooperated fully and refused to allow testimony or other evidence to be presented except that which was narrowly focused on property matters.
As anticipated, a related lawsuit in Federal court, brought by the rightful Bishop of the Diocese of South Carolina in April 2013, got bogged down for years as a contrarian Federal judge stubbornly insisted the two cases were the same and he would wait for the state courts to rule before moving forward.
However, the tables have turned since 2015.
In August of this year, the state Supreme Court overturned Goodstein and ruled that 29 of the 36 pro-Lawrence parishes could not leave the Episcopal Church with their buildings without the consent of the Church. It also dismissed the Lawrencians' claims to the "Episcopal Diocese of South Carolina," but that would have to wait until a related Federal case before U.S.
The water is from the state of New York, the state of Idaho, the province of Alberta, and everywhere below that frame. Far above Old River are places where the floodplain is more than a hundred miles wide. Spaniards in the sixteenth century came upon it at the wrong time, saw an ocean moving south, and may have been discouraged. Where the delta began, at Old River, the water spread out even more—through a palimpsest of bayous and distributary streams in forested paludal basins—but this did not dissuade the French. For military and commercial purposes, they wanted a city in such country. They laid it out in 1718, only months before a great flood. Even as New Orleans was rising, its foundations filled with water. The message in the landscape could not have been more clear: like the aboriginal people, you could fish and forage and move on, but you could not build there—you could not create a city, or even a cluster of modest steadings—without declaring war on nature. You did not have to be Dutch to understand this, or French to ignore it. The people of southern Louisiana have often been compared unfavorably with farmers of the pre-Aswan Nile, who lived on high ground, farmed low ground, and permitted floods to come and go according to the rhythms of nature. There were differences in Louisiana, though. There was no high ground worth mentioning, and planters had to live on their plantations. The waters of the Nile were warm; the Mississippi brought cold northern floods that sometimes stood for months, defeating agriculture for the year. If people were to farm successfully in the rich loams of the natural levees—or anywhere nearby—they could not allow the Mississippi to continue in its natural state. Herbert Kassner, the division’s public-relations director, once remarked to me, “This river used to meander all over its floodplain. People would move their tepees, and that was that. You can’t move Vicksburg.”

In typicalfashion McLaren tries to hide his criticism and contradiction of the historicorthodox Christian faith behind "if," but it becomes clear enough thatthese are his own personal beliefs. Right in line with other religiouscult leaders McLaren shows he doesn't think the Church has correctly understoodthe message of Jesus down through the centuries when he writes: "if thisreading of the Gospels is accurate, why didn't scholars see it a hundredor five hundred or eighteen hundred years ago?"(13) by Ken Silva, Apprising Ministries,8/7/06
"They felt it was really important tojust get together, write together, and believe in each other as practitionersof a craft to the glory of God."(Mars Hill Review, 1995, "A Conversationwith Eugene Peterson.") It is a "craft," all right.
Truth has been assassinated by political correctness, the gospel hasfallen victim to "we must not offend other religions," God is being mocked,and eternal souls are being robbed of the salvation that is only in JesusChrist.

I feel very bad about this expose' as Richard Foster was a former youthpastor in a church I attended some 29 year ago. At that time he wasa real blessing to our youth group and was not dabbling in New Age mysticism.
As a not-for-profit ministry, we strive to use every pennywisely and imagine that you do too. Because of the time and effortrequired to process the huge amount of correspondence we receive, we respectfullyrequest that you remove our organization from your mailing list. This may also help you save some printing and postage costs. Thankyou for taking the time to update your records. We sincerely appreciateyour prompt assistance with this matter.
For instance, in ChuckSwindoll�s book So You Want to Be Like Christ: 8 Essential Disciplinesto Get Your There, Swindoll favorably quotes Richard Foster and DallasWillard.
As a whole andfor the most part, excepting, of course, Samaritan�s Purse and many othergood and godly missions and ministries, the evangelical movement does nothave a good reputation among outsiders.
We will examinethe means, or disciplines if you choose, which the Word of God clearlyidentifies as ways God has designed for His people to be transformed intoChrist-likeness and to experience intimacy with Him.(554) by Lighthouse Trails, 2/15/14
