This section of the site is
still very much under construction. For
the time being, it will only be a collection of scriptures, prayers and the
beginnings of liturgy. The intention
though, is to develop it into a proper Prayer Book.
It should be noted from the
outset that the English
does not take a fundamentalist approach to the scriptures of the Christian
faith – or to any other for that matter.
Marcion’s ‘Gospel of the Lord’ is included in this section as it is the
oldest known Gospel – though is actually a reconstruction of the original. However, even this Gospel is not viewed as
any more than the work and recollections of human beings who witnessed
something very special – the Word of God amongst us. Of more importance to the EFC, will be the
Cristemal – or ‘sayings of Christ’ which is currently being prepared. The EFC teaches that Jesus taught the
natural law of God, something that we come to know both through the scriptures
and from our own experience.
