Defending the rights of

Christians to express

their genuine beliefs.

Helping people to have a better life on their way to hell is not the purpose of the ‘Church.’

Good works are good, but who gets the glory? Is it you? Is it the church? Or is it Jesus?

Ecumenism

There is a pluralistic ecumenism embracing all faiths and there is a Christ centred ecumenism.

This site is a Christ centred ecumenism and does not promote any other faith other than the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Locally

Cumbria once had two important ecumenical components.
The small player was the independent Bound Together Christian (paper) magazine that began in AD 1994 and had some powerful enemies
within the ecumenical movement and also the evangelical movement. The free editorial also rattled the cages of important secularists in local government and also the local media, who were in favour of Carlisle’s occult Millennium project.  

Eventually the weight of opposition was too great for the editor to continue. Fortunately the web site continues, but unfortunately does not reach the 3,000 readers who once read the paper newsletter every two months.

The major player is Churches Together in Cumbria. Surely it is the will of God for all Christians and their churches to be bound together by the power of the Holy Spirit?
If only it was that simple!

The Pefect Church

 

Jesus said,

You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.  Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven.  

Is this happening, or are the Christians getting the praise?

 

 

 

 

Churches Together (CT)

 

A more accurate title would be ‘Some Churches Together’.

 

CT have a very informative official web site at  www.churchestogethercumbria.co.uk  where you could be forgiven for thinking the ‘church’ was a good deed society, rather than the propagator of the gospel that is an offence to the world. Romans 9:33

 

At a Churches Together meeting during the Millennium it was suggested that the use of a cross might offend people. The lady was obviously unaware of Romans 9:33

 

At another meeting ‘fundamental’ Christians, (those who actually believe the Bible is truth), were described by one official as ‘living in a cave’. The reasoning, presumably being that they were theologically lacking, because of their child like faith in the Bible as the Word of God. What else is there - presumably the intellect of modern man?

 

The constitution of CT is very Christ centred, however, the reality is that the lowest common theological denominator seems to be the basis of CT unity.

 

Unfortunately their good works do not speak for Christ in a country less and less familiar with who Jesus is. They may prefer to refer to ‘God’, because people of all faiths can relate to a ‘god’.

The end result is that they themselves and their denominations get the glory for the good works, instead of the glory going to Jesus and all He came on earth to achieve.
