Finding “justice” is not the goal of a GC delegate

It should be searching for and discerning Truth. Fortunately for all of us, God has given us the Truth in the form of the Bible. God’s Word is very clear: marriage is only between a man and a woman and homosexuality is an abomination before God. Our leaders must not only teach these and other Words of God, they must live in accordance with them. Thus, the only plan which will be pleasing to God is the Traditional Plan.

Baptismal Covenant

"Finding “justice” is not the goal of a GC delegate"
Last time I checked our baptismal covenant still included "Do you accept the freedom and power God gives you to resist, evil, injustice and oppression...?" We got segregated central conferences in 1939 because delegates forgot about justice. I sincerely pray that justice is a goal of our delegates. If you want them to look for truth in scripture, they might start with Micah 6:8

I disagree

Justice is based on truth but justice is subject to bias. So, Christians should seek to find truth (God’s Word) and shed the biases of “justice such as the secular evil of”social justice” as expressed by ptogressives.

Abomination

Eating bacon is also an abomination. Please read Hebrews 8 . Blessings.D.

Yes but Christ delivered us from that law

See Mark 7, Acts 10 and Galatians 3. Besides there is always turkey bacon.

Notable Quotes   


   "A preoccupation with the faithfulness of others is too easily used as a means of evading the demands of the Gospel on our own lives."

    – The Rev. Dr. Frederick W. Schmidt, "Jesus Never Said, 'Go Make Others Do Things.'

    "Christ told us specifically where He would be found and where we were to worship Him as Christians until He came in glory: Christ is in the people who need our help. Christ is in hungry and thirsty people; in people without adequate clothing and shelter; in people who are strangers in a strange land and people who are imprisoned. Any so-called Christianity that ignores or, God forbid, abuses such people is pernicious heresy from the pit of hell. You spit on the Body of Christ in the Chalice when you abuse Him in the body of your neighbor."

– Mary Pezzulo, "How to Help Imprisoned Migrants," on her blog "Steel Magnificat" on Patheos.com.
