The nation’s oldest Pentecostal denomination is the Church…

The nation’s oldest Pentecostal denomination is the Church of God based in Cleveland, TN. A few years ago it updated its church laws to say that movie-going and wearing jewelry are no longer dis¬pleasing to God. My friends, this illustrates the very thing wrong with creeds and codes. They have to be revised and changed, but the Word of God doesn’t change. So why not scrap the creeds and use the Bible alone. When creeds change, it makes it appear that God can’t make up his mind, but the truth is God’s word still reads the same. Moreover, conventions with clergyman voting to decide what the church believes smacks of Romanism. While the Pentecostals met in Cleveland to decide whether to watch movies, the Episcopals were gathered in Detroit to decide whether to recognize homosexual marriages. It seems to me if we would just speak where the Bible speaks and be silent where the Bible is silent, these matters would be already settled by God. This is Just-A-Minute with Ed Boggess
