Misfit Disciples in an Orthodox World

Misfit Disciples in an Orthodox World
"You had better be a round peg in a square hole than a round peg in a round hole. The latter is in for life, while the first is only an indeterminate sentence." – Elbert Hubbard

In God-fearing USA, where is the decency?

Monday, November 1, 2010

I have read this several times over the past several days. What I can NOT get over is this:
Apparently, one of those rules states: "Thou shalt not consort with the other side, even for a good cause." An example of this played out this year after a top official of the Assemblies of God, George Wood, signed a Covenant for Civility that was making the rounds in Christian circles. Upon discovering that he was keeping company on the rolls with persons who "reject the moral teachings of Scripture" (liberals, evidently) Wood asked that his name be removed.
Having been a Pentecostal in a past life, I find it utterly amazing that a man like Woods could not support the core fundamentals of the document, regardless of whose name was attached to it. He obviously saw no contradiction with it and his scriptural ideals and only reacted when he found out someone he disagreed with had signed the document as well. This is hypocrisy at its worse!
