One of the (many) things I have been learning recently was how to love my fellow Christians with whom I disagree over matters of theology/biblical interpretation. However there has to be a line beyond which a person / church has ceased to be Christian. The good news is that we don't have to decide where that line is as Jesus told us how to recognise the real thing:"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them."From what I have read the fruits of Mars Hill, Seattle (to avoid confusion with other churches with that name) do not seem at all good.God bless and prayers from across the pond.Hugh
it's kinda funny ...on the side of your blog it says:I LIKE:- Mars Hill Church Abuseanyways, i have so many questions I ask you in my head everyday.
The self proclaimed 'lollipop head' hides behind his curtain avoiding any real accountability - or even encourgaing those in his charge to honor any edicts such as those espoused in the How Dare You Sermon or Songs of Solomon series. He glibly boasts of being one of the fair Emerald City's most influential people. Yes, indeed. A worshipful place of beauty has turned to a cesspool of opposition of to the Bible. Many leaders or deacons are choosen as such for mundane or unbiblical tasks/talents...they may as well be munckins. All answering to their leader via a screen. Albeit emails, mandatory participation in The City, or the big screen Sunday sermon...it's all downloadable, editable, and orchestrated by the great M.A.D. I pray in the name of Jesus Christ this group will leave former members be and stop the bully pulpit for those within those who question. What about the Bereans? They were the most noble, were they not? Anyone who questions MHC is told don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. What do the words join us in "corporate worship" evoke - certainly not the image of Christ? Wake up friends, I speak the truth in love.
