WCA Breaking of Covenant

Whew. Mark Davies' posting on the WCA is a three point sermon, with headings of "Hiss," "Boo" and "Bah." The WCA is discriminatory, exclusionary, schismatic, bigoted and "denigrates the sacred worth of all persons." The only accusation not flung at the WCA is that they call names. And yet Mark is not the spawn of Satan or tool of the Antichrist...his passion and deep concern and hope for the church can be glimpsed through the chunks of concrete he hurls as those who have principled disagreement with him on certain issues. So do keep in prayer for the Commission and hard as it may be for those of us with deep convictions, post James 1:19-20 on your wall: be quick to listen, slow to speak, slow to anger, for human anger does not work the righteousness of God."
