‘Regardless of where one stands on this matter, this is a striking statement to make.
‘ ‘A new revelation not shared with our forefathers.’
‘In other words, God has given The Episcopal Church a revelation that cannot be found in Scripture or Tradition, a revelation that Jesus, St. Paul and the rest of the New Testament writers, the Church Fathers, the Reformers, the Anglican Divines, etc., did not have access to.

‘But how do we know this is truly revelation from God? By what authority and what criteria does a claim to new revelation get checked out and determined to be true or false?’
