"your best ally in keeping him from the Church"
The phrase ‘the Church’ has more than one meaning. As written here, it refers to all followers of Jesus, ‘to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be holy, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ’ (1 Corinthians 1:2). The phrase does not refer to the Church of England
, the head of the Anglican body, which combines traditions and practices of the Catholic Church
with doctrinal principles of the Protestant Reformation
. The Mother Church of the Church of England is Canterbury Cathedral
in Canterbury, England.
