An Important Note On Terms

image_pdfimage_print

This site is written to, not at, apostolic Pentecostals. For the purposes of this site I define apostolic the way it is defined on the Apostolic Friends Forum:

There is One God. This one God reveals Himself as Father, Son and Holy Ghost.
The Son is God himself in a human form or “God manifested in the flesh” (1Tim 3:16) [sic]
1
Every sinner must repent of their sins.
That Jesus name baptism is the only biblical mode of water baptism.
That the Holy Ghost is for today and is received by faithwith [sic] the initial evidence of speaking in tongues.
The saint will go on to strive to live a holy life, pleasing to God.2

My personal background is not just apostolic, it is holiness Apostolic. I was raised in a combination of independent holiness apostolic, UPC, and ALJC churches. Because of my background I sometimes use the terms “UPC”, “apostolic”, and “Oneness Pentecostal” interchangeably. However, I would like to stress that this site is not related to the current split going on in the UPC. I do not identify with the Oneness Apostolic movement at all, so please do not mistake this for an anti-UPC site!

    I just wanted to tell you that I to have been Reading and Studying the Word of God for complete Truth and I see things from the Bible that my Church adamantly Preaches against, but I am trying to truly understand God’s word and the best way to follow Him. He said to study the Word to show myself approved a workman rightly dividing the Word of Truth. I have been an Apostolic for more than 35 years but I recently have been searching the Scriptures for things that are being taught against in the Apostolic Movement. I am thankful to have found your site. May God continue to Bless you in your Mission.

    Relativism has gotten into your spirit. Truth can only be compared to truth. Every scripture has an explanatory scripture. Relativism is damaging and destructive. It attempts to destroy the foundation of truth. Without the security of foundational truth, the believer is left with nothing to stand on, with nothing substantial to believe. If nothing is right or wrong, then there can be no right or wrong choice. Every thing is fliud in a no man’s land of uncertainty. This view obviously excludes faith therefore if any MSN be in Christ,and pleasog to the Lord one must have faith, Hebrews 11:6. Get Back on board, brother.
