LEGALISM CULTS SECTS
Recently I came across a web site which seemed to be dedicated to some idea about love. It was very down on Christian “things” and as such, left a negative influence regarding truth.
It appears this person was brought up in some fundamental Pentecostal church, and I realised after, that this was why he was so “down” on churches, and why he was in need of expressing his feelings.
There are many people “out there”, who have been “put through the wringer” by fundamental belief systems, which usually are extremely legalistic, and heavy with old testament content.
I am sympathetic with his pain, having some knowledge of “injured” people from Christadelphian as well as World Wide Church Of God religions; but there are a lot of different groups who “muddy the waters” of Christianity by their warped beliefs. [Mormon and JW’s to mention just two of them]
While the mainline traditional Christian churches may have a wrinkle or three to be ironed out, they are generally speaking, pretty good, that is why they are still mainline and traditional. Catholic versus Protestant is another story again, and one not to be entered into here.
[the problems described above, loosely parallel the Problems Paul encountered between Judaism and Christianity.] (for world wide church of God, check this website “You might have grown up in the world wide church of God if…” http://hwarmstrong.com/grown.htm#new11_20_2014 ) Need to scroll to top of page, or go to their home site on the bottom of the article.
