Please Keep Both Versions Around

2 posts in this topic

I understand a LOT of thought went into the new 2011 version of the 8 points. I agree, it is more inclusive. It needs to be kept. However, I find the original 8 points to be a bolder statement: especially the 8th point about the costliness of following Jesus and renunciation of privilege. Most everyone would agree with "selfless love" and "resistance to evil," but few people are really willing to think about giving up the privileges they feel they have earned. It is a bold statement that challenges us to change. Thus, please do not throw away the original version.

 

Derek.

Derek,

 

Thanks for your concern. That is certainly our stated intentions. The original version will remain for the foreseeable future. Your comment is an input that was taken in consideration.
