Another Christian comes down with a case of the common sense. Reverend Gregory A. Boyd of the Woodland Hills Church in St Paul, Minnesota caught it a few years back and hasn’t been the same since… luckily.
Rev. Boyd preaches to some 4,000 members of the church every week and spreads a surprising message… well surprising to Christians anyways. Annoyed with church members asking him to promote their anti-gay agenda, endorse ONLY Republican candidates, and hang Americans flags in the church to support the war effort, Rev Boyd sent a clear message.
He wrote up six sermons called, "The Cross and the Sword" to clearly outline the purpose of their faith and their church. Boyd says,
The church should steer clear of politics, give up moralizing on sexual issues, stop claiming the United States as a “Christian nation” and stop glorifying American military campaigns.
Those are powerful words that sit well with me. In this one sentence, Boyd sums up what is ruining Christianity today. Unfortunately, that sermon didn’t sit well with his flock. The church lost 1,000 of its 5,000 members because it didn’t fit their broken concept of Christianity. But is there anything wrong with what Boyd has stated?
I really would like to hear from the Christians on this one. Do you agree with Boyd’s statement and why?
I’d like to thank Michael Lawrence for sending me this story.
