Have you filed formal accusations in writing against those you consider to be false teachers? If not why not? Hebrews 13:17 requires you to submit to the authorities over you in the church. As long as you are a church member in the Church of the Nazarene that means following the requirements of the manual and filling a written accusation.Originally Posted by Church of the Nazarene Manual 505.1
Hebrews 13:17 commands you to submit to the leadership. If the leaders feel that you are wrong you can either:
1. Blatantly ignore and disobey Hebrews 13:17 and continue your campaign against the false teachers (whom the church leadership does not feel are actually false teachers).
2. Oben Hebrews 13:17, submit and recognize that you are actually wrong and the people you thought were false teachers are actually not false teachers.
3. Leave the Church of the Nazarene for one that better fits your understanding of theology and polity.
It seems from your behavior over the years that you are ignoring and in fact disobeying Hebrews 13:17, taking the first course of action above. I pointed this biblical command out to you on May 12, 2010. So what is it, is the bible your authority or not? Does Hebrews 13:17 apply to you? If it does, how do you justify ignoring it for the last two or so years? If it doesn't, why not?
I'm hopeful you'll actually answer me this time as you just ignored my question last time around.
