Maids of Honor

Max Lucado's book "It's Not About Me." It is the book to be discussed this fall at the Maids of Honor women's ministry meetings.

Max Lucado’s book “It’s Not About Me.” It is the book to be discussed this fall at the Maids of Honor women’s ministry meetings.

The new women’s ministry group is called Maids of Honor. The mission for this fall is “Rescue Me From Me.” It goes along with the content of Max Lucado’s book titled “It’s Not About Me.” The group is going to meet one Tuesday each month. There have been 38 commitments to read the book so far.

Tammy Singo presented the books Sunday June 30th along with a note taking journal and pen. The display she set up at the Welcome Center was very nicely done.

We are steadily growing with more valuable things to get involved with at the church. All of our ministries have their foundation in the Word of God with all the glory for their success going to him.

Church of God Stance on Same Sex Marriage

In light of the recent court decision, this is a reaffirmation of where we stand as the Church of God as an organization. We also stand by this here at Living Waters Church of God.

 

CHURCH OF GOD STATEMENT ON REAFFIRMATION OF BIBLICAL MARRIAGE

This statement was adopted by the Church of God Executive Committee on June 26, 2013, reflecting the position of the denomination regarding the issue of marriage.

The Church of God bases its doctrinal positions and practices on the teachings of scripture. Its statement of Practical Commitments affirms, under the rubric of Family
Responsibility, “Marriage is ordained of God and is a spiritual union in which a man and a woman are joined by God to live together as one (Genesis 2:24; Mark 10:7).”

Further, the Church addresses the critical issue of Moral Purity by asserting,

Our body is the temple of the Holy Ghost, and we are to glorify God in our body (Romans 12:1, 2 ; 1 Corinthians 6:19, 20; 10:31). We are to walk in the Spirit and not fulfill the lust of the flesh (Galatians 5:16). Examples of fleshly behavior which do not glorify God are noted in several passages of scripture (Romans 1:24; 1 Corinthians 6:9, 10; Galatians 5:19-21; Revelations 21:8). Sinful practices which are made prominent in these scriptures include homosexuality, adultery, worldly attitudes (such as hatred, envy, jealousy), corrupt communication (such as gossip, angry outbursts, filthy words), stealing, murder, drunkenness, and witchcraft.

In response to the imprudent decision of the United States Supreme Court on June 26, 2013, in the case of the United States v. Windsor, the Church reaffirms its historical and biblical position on marriage. The action of the Court nullifies Section 3 of the Defense of Marriage Act that defined marriage for purposes of federal law as the union of a man and a woman and, consequently, by this action upholds the legality of same-sex marriage.

The Church of God supports a definition of marriage that upholds the truth that sexual difference is a valuable characteristic of the marriage relationship; that the fundamental good of complementarity found in the union of a man and woman is essential for the wellbeing of the family. Abundant research acknowledges the equivalent significance of mothers and fathers to the healthy development of children. We defend an understanding of marriage that reflects centuries of common sense, biological reality, the Bible’s definition, the Judeo-Christian tradition, and the wisdom, on this subject, of all the great religions. We sustain a position that argues for the welfare of children and the good of society.

We affirm this statement based on two truths: the sacredness of marriage and the sinfulness of homosexuality.

The idea of marriage did not originate from the mind of man, but of God. The Bible explains that the Creator made man and woman for each other (Genesis 2:18-24), and this truth is reaffirmed by the Savior (Matthew 19:4-6). It is God who ordained marriage and it was Christ who said “What therefore God has joined together, let no man separate.” This being the case, men cannot legitimately change the definition of marriage to please themselves. A redefinition of marriage would constitute a negation of marriage. Human laws must be judged by the laws of God.

Same-sex marriage recognized as legal in effect legitimizes homosexuality, which the Bible declares to be sinful. Homosexuality violates the natural order of sexuality by which the human race develops and continues. It violates scriptural teachings, as demonstrated in Leviticus 18:22; 20:13; Romans 1:25-27; 1 Corinthians 6:9-10; and 1 Timothy 1: 9, 10. It violates God’s plan for marriage and the family, as clarified by Genesis 2:18-24; Matthew 19:3-4; 1Corinthians 6:9; 1 John 1:9. Although some distort the scriptures to suggest that the plain meaning of the passages does not apply, the reality is that homosexuality is never viewed as anything but displeasing to God.

In recognizing God’s condemnation of sinful practices, the Church affirms its love and concern for the temporal and eternal security of those in this lifestyle, and denounces only their sinful conduct. The Bible assures those who wish to be free of homosexual urges that freedom is possible. After the 1 Corinthians 6 listing of sins, including homosexuality, it declares, “Such were some of you.”

Deliverance is a reality. In lamenting the Court’s decision that we believe may adversely affect future generations by unpredictable demographic, cultural, social, and religious outcomes, we also call upon people who value biblical marriage to take all possible steps to counter family disruption in all of its forms.
