The Church and Its Orthodoxy (Conformity) Toward War: Part 8

This entry is part 8 of 8 in the series The Church and Its Orthodoxy (Conformity) Toward War

My conclusion to Dr. Robert Moyer’s pamphlet could have very easily been the introduction, because I am not as interested in proving Moyer wrong as I am in getting at the truth.

Religion: Satan’s Greatest Deception (A Repost)

The “churched,” the “unchurched,” and the hyper-churched

  by glennchristopherson         Let me fly my colours straight up. I would rather be unchurched and saved, than churched and unsaved. This concept of targeting the unchurched has its modern manifestation beginnings with the “seeker friendly” movement, but it’s really just a rehashing of the ancient Papal heresy of, “there is no salvation outside the church.” […]
