Church Promotes Condom Distribution in the Sanctuary
Slice of Laodicea ^ | 3/25/2009 | Ingrid Schuelter

Posted on 03/26/2009 1:04:52 PM PDT by ReformationFan

The terminally ill UCC denomination has decided that the solution to their membership in freefall is to hand out condoms in the sanctuary during church services. You may have wondered what the last C in UCC stands for, and whatever they may say, it isn’t Christ. But why hand them out in the sanctuary? Are they preparing their people for the next phase of the church sex campaigns? Stay tuned. These apostate temples of doom always have a something new in the wings, and in this case, it can’t be good.

One has to give credit to liberals. Everytime you think they can't get any crazier, they do. Like death and taxes, their increasing insanity can always be relied upon.

This is so silly. If I want condoms, I don’t have to go to a church service to get them.

It would be interesting if the UCC would start offering sex orgies on demand during services.

The UCC is simply engaging in mockery, this isn’t an attempt to get new members because society is already offering what the UCC is offering.

Yeah, preventing children. What a great way to deal with falling membership...

they should also go topless and let the worshippers put their donations into the g-strings of the chorus girls wandering the aisles.

Exactly, just visit a local elementary school, they are passing them out all over the place.

I am a member of a UCC congregation. I have yet to see a pregnant teen girl from our church. That’s a whole lot more than can be said for some churches.

They should put them on the tips of arrows, and fire them into the congregation....

Must be interesting church services, if there’s a need for the participants to have condoms . . .

Good call. First you were right about the high heels and now the condoms in church.

I wonder if that’s because there really are no pregnancies, or if the pregnancies are aborted.

Not to hit this one too hard, but a lot of girls from mainline protestant churches will go to an abortion mill and have their children killed before it becomes obvious they were ever pregnant to begin with.

No idea. The girls could also be packed off to the Home for Unwed Mothers in Booneville.

Yeah, that’s right. The first Sunday of each month we burn a couple of aborted fetuses on the church altar right before the sex orgy./sarc

They are left wing political organizations. They are not there to save souls, they are there to promote a liberal political agenda.

If you don't stand for something you'll fall for anything.

I always like to think WWJDOOTS?

Who Would Jesus Drive Out of the Sanctuary?

The Swedenborgian Church

Home of the famous Hot Dish?

Seriously, the Swedenborgian Church seems to believe that it's founder is a lot smarter than you are, and you should believe his little set of views about the Bible. In a nutshell, do good works and you get to go to heaven, do bad ones, and you go to hell. (Sadly, just about what the average non-Christian thinks Christianity preaches.)

Like all liberal idiots, they have no vision past right now. They must be hoping to attract the stupid single feel-good idiot with too much money crowd.

A church isn't interested in your salvation unless it is teaching directly from the Bible. Try this:

Hold your Bible with the spine toward the floor. Think of the front cover & back cover of the Bible as the rails - like a railroad track. If what you are taught is between the rails, it is of God. If you are being taught things that fall outside the rails, it is of man. Jesus is the only one who can give you everlasting life. If a man tells you he can you are being deceived.

Many of the churches in the list are teaching nothing from the Word or they take a little piece of the Word, muck it up with man and then teach it as gospel. The more of His word that you know, the less likely you will be cheated out of salvation.

Funny. That is not what my Bible says. It says, "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved."

Also, "He that believes and is baptized shall be saved."

It does say, "Faith without works is dead" but we do good works because we are saved and desire to do right but our salvation is not dependent on the works.

Many of these left wing churches defy God's Commandments. They're sure they know better. The UCC is one of the prime offenders. They have rejected the God of the Bible.

Churches don’t have to meet your definition of a church to be one. Maybe the government or God will give you the job of determining what’s a church and what isn’t. Get your resume in early.

Knowing my Bible has kept me out of a lot of trouble through the years and has brought me to where I am today.

Interesting that the big, bad RCC didn't make the NCC cut.

A church is just a place where His people meet to learn and fellowship - For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them.” (Matthew 18:20).

As believers, we are called to tell people the truth. If one chooses to listen and follow it's a wonderful thing. If one chooses to turn their back, it's sad.
