Texas Churches At Center Of Controversy
Texas Churches At Center Of Controversy Two Texas churches are appearing before the high courts of that state in defense of their exercise of church discipline in cases involving adultery. The cases are expected to set some legal precedent. Plaintiffs are arguing that the churches' practice violates their basic freedoms and makes something illegal that state law does not. It will be interesting to see if the courts will support the churches' freedom to exercise religion and pursue purity and holiness through discipline.
I love the Lord because He first loved me. I love His people because He has given me a new heart. I have received God's favor in the form of my wife, Kristie. And together we know His blessing through three children. I was once a Muslim, and by God's grace I have been saved through faith in Jesus Christ. By God's unfathomable grace I am a preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, in which I hope to serve Him until He returns or calls me home!
