Jesus Christ is the Head of our Church. We believe that above all values, the greatest is that we Love the Lord God with our mind, body and soul and that we love our neighbors as ourselves. We believe that the bible is the inspired word of God.
We believe each person to be on a spiritual journey and at different stages of that journey.
We believe that the persistent search for God produces authentic relationships with God.
We believe in dignity of all persons. We believe in speaking against systems, structures and nations that are not focused on justice for all of humanity.
We believe in the revolutionary act of Love. We believe in promoting all forms of education that meets the mandates of society.
We believe in causing social change that promotes peace.
We believe in being socially prophetic and not just progressive and liberal for the sake of political correctness.
We consider ourselves to be a light called by God to shine amidst the spiritual ignorance of our age that perpetuates racism, sexism, homophobia and xenophobia as well as all isms and phobias that promote hatred, violence, poverty, religious fanaticism and ignorance cloaked in religious dogma.
Do you see a problem?
Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity (Matthew 7:22-23).
You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons. You cannot share in the Lord’s table and the table of demons (1 Corinthians 10:21).
Do not practice homosexuality, having sex with another man as with a woman. It is a detestable sin (Leviticus 18:22).
Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God (1 Corinthians 6:9-10).
Watch out! This is not new. Paul talked about this heavily in his letters to the church. Those who commit sin and willfully decieve will receive a harsh judgment from God. Protect yourself from false teachers. They cloak themselves with the Bible, but evidently do not teach it. Woe unto them who teach to blalantly deceive, when the Bible is clear.
It would be better for them to create their own book and teach from that.
Church Response should you see this arise in your church?
Then you must throw this man out and hand him over to Satan so that his sinful nature will be destroyed and he himself will be saved on the day the Lord returns (1 Corinthians 5:5).
