The article starts out: This is amazing. A church is actually having to vote to make it "mandatory for clergy to accept" the Divinity of Jesus Christ. This is as clear of a case of modern apostasy as there is. Ok, this Church is going to vote on the Divinity of Jesus Christ and the measure will fail? I don't really know what is worse. The fact that this is something they feel must be voted on or the fact that the measure might actually fail. Which means the majority of those in leadership, who will vote, deny the Lordship of Jesus Christ. The article continues: So it is the position of the United Church of Christ that those who deny the Deity of Jesus Christ should not be condemned? If the UCC, as they call themselves, opposes condemning those who deny the Divinity of Christ then they oppose Jesus Christ Himself. Jesus told the Pharisee that, "Therefore I said to you that you will die in your sins; for unless you believe that I Am He, you will die in your sins" (Jn 8:24). The Apostle Paul said that, in order to be saved and enter heaven, a person must confess "Jesus as Lord" (Rom 10:9). That is more than just saying the words, that is a solid belief. Those in the UCC that deny the deity of Christ, those who don't want to condemn anyone, are themselves condemned. They are not condemned by man...no they are condemned by the very God they claim to represent. They, unless they repent, will die in their sins since they reject the Lord Jesus Christ. The article goes on: Let me translate this for you. What the United Church of Christ is actually saying is this, "Come join our Church. We don't care what you believe, we don't care if you believe, we just want you to feel good". The Bible gives a different picture. In fact, in Scripture, belief is the whole issue. One of the most, if not the most, famous Bible verses in all the world is John 3:16. Let's look at the whole verse and its context: "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life. For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him. He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the Name of the only begotten Son of God" -Jn 3:16-18 Let's compare. Scripture says if you believe in Jesus you are saved, if you don't you are condemned. The United Church of Christ says that it does not really matter what you believe. As the old Blockbuster Video saying went, "WOW What A Difference!". The United Church of Christ is, in effect, not only deny the Deity and Person of Jesus Christ they are denying the Gospel as well! The article says: My response to this is simple: Why? Why would a church put a fool in the pulpit? The Bible says those who don't believe in God are fools who have darkened hearts (Ps 14:1, Rom 1:18-23). Why put people like that behind the sacred desk? Notice that nothing is grounded in the truth of God's Word. Everything is realative. Why do these people even pretend to be Christians? Apart from a grounding in the Word we have no reason to be Christians. Beyond that it sounds alot like they just don't believe (and thus they are judged). Jesus never turned anyone away? Really? My Bible says differently. Jesus turned away the Rich Young Ruler (Lk 18:18-30, the Pharisee who rejected Him (Matt 23:13-36), and others who He would not entrust "Himself to them" (Jn 2:23-25), the disciples who walked away in John 6:66. Jesus turned many away. He turned away those who put themselves (their pride, money, pleasures, etc) in front of God. Jesus said that to be His disciple (a follower of Christ, a Christian) one must deny himself and follow Him (Lk 8:23-27). That means to become a follower of Christ, and be accepted by Him and time and eternity, we must deny ourselves and turn to Him in faith. Then we will be accepted by Him. However if we continue in our sin, and thus reject Him, we will hear Him pronounce the final rejection of us when He says, "Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels" (Matt 25:41). These "liberals", as they are called, need to make up their minds. Do they want Christ? Or do they want themselves? That is their choice. If they go with themselves, as it seems they are doing, that means they are eternally condemned. However if they go with Christ that means they must follow Him, obey Him, and deny themselves. They must acknowledge Him as their Lord (Master) and their God (as Thomas did). The United Church of Christ is clearly in serious apostasy. The article can be found here . In Christ, Martin.
