University Congregational United Church of Christ
Come hear one of the most passionate and committed voices for progressive Christianity speak this Wednesday at the U District in Seattle. The title of the lecture is "How I Became a Heretic with Help from Jesus."
Rev. Meyers is senior minister at Mayflower Congregational United Church of Christ, the fastest growing UCC church in the Kansas Oklahoma conference. He is also a tenured professor of philosophy at Oklahoma City University, an author, a syndicated columnist, and an award-winning commentator for National Public Radio.
They admit that they have to be a heretic in order to become one of their groups.
It just tells you that Bible Prophecy is true, The Holy Bible says: "But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction" 2 PETER 2:1-3
"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." 2 TIMOTHY 4:3-5
"Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils." 1 TIMOTHY 4:1
It used to be that Progressive Christianity meant taking the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the ends of the Earth.
Now it means using the government to coerce people by threat of force to give money to the government for “redistribution” and “social justice”.
NOWHERE in the Old or New Testament is ANYTHING like that taught!!!
“United Church of Christ”
was that the same “denomination” that Obama went to in Chicago?
with its black liberation theology? ( hmmmm, BLT....)
C S*A) Ping!
* as of August 19, AD 2009, a liberal protestant SECT, not part of the holy, catholic and apostolic CHURCH.
Alleluia! Christ is Risen!
Progressive Christians is an oxymoron.
That’s what I thought too?
Christians are followers of Jesus Christ. How can they call themselves Christians?
was that the same denomination that Obama went to in Chicago? with its black liberation theology? ( hmmmm, BLT....)
And BHØ was a keynote speaker at the denomination's national assembly in 2005...had the delegates mesmerized.
Apparently a member of the social justice, socialist, atheist, Jesus was a great teacher, let's hijack the churches because they have the money and the organization and the do-gooders school of theology/philosophy/politics.
Progressive Christian, liberation theology, Communism, and when the illusion is gone, Fascism. It’s all a mishmashed rehash of Marxist crap, even when they slander God with it. Better to understand simple commands, like don’t steal, even when you use the government to do it. Don’t envy, even when you use class warfare, racial divisions, and political causes that are based on hate and utilitarian values.
No thanks. I'd probably get so mad, I'd end up doing a big time rebuking. "You brood of vipers! You are like whitewashed sepulchurs, appearing clean on the outside but full of dead men's bones."
Only with their lips.
Christ is all things:
Faith, Hope and Love.
Knowledge, Wisdom and Understanding.
He is also our government, a heavenly government, as in heaven so on earth, through his church.
The carnal “churches” a la “United Church of Christ”, are agents of the Serpent.
I was raised in the “United Church of Christ”. They were members of the NCC/WCC and are responsible for more deaths in Africa and elsewhere than most will accept. They're funding of socialist/communist insurrection movements in Africa, over the last few decades, to depose a dictatorship, with the only purpose of establishing another dictatorship, is ripe for judgment.
Socialism, whether right or left, is the gospel taught in most denominations today.
Church for me is “were two or three are gathered together” in Christ's name.
Mystery Babylon, come out of her.
"Progressive Christianity"...is that another way of saying
No thanks. I am a Christian..
Going to a leftist church is like attending a political rally or a DNC funeral. Every economic and social Marxist slogan is the “gospel.”
Progressive Christians from Seattle will burn in Hell just fine, once they dry out.
