A reader sends along these two links. One from a member of the Lidless Eye Faction, indulging in loony prophetic interpretation not wildly dissimilar from something Dispensationalists would appreciate. The other is from Stephen Hand, with whom I’ve had my disagreements in the past, but who makes the rather sensible point (also made by Newman in his Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine) that the Church has always been royally screwed up and nostalgia for the Golden Age is dumb.
