Christian BoyLove Forum #67019
One of the sillier arguments of those who don't get 'tradition' in the church is to suggest that because they can find an example of a particular behaviour in the early church, it's reasonable to adopt that attitude today. This is a fundamental misunderstanding of how the process works; we start from the fact that the Holy Spirit is at work in the church. If a tradition persists and it is not contrary to the scriptures, then it is reasonable to assume that the Holy Spirit hasn't guided the church to reject it. If however it has disappeared from the church in a few years, it's probably not of God. So the fact that you can find a group with weird beliefs doesn't prove that that is of God.
However thank you for adding to my collection of wacky Christian groups.
