God's One True Church!
YHWH's Sovereign Movement! Of Sold-Out Disciples!
(Aside: Ever think about the term, "Sold-Out"? And the fact that it refers to money? And materialism?)
They claim that the Faithful, Baptized members of the ICC are (almost without exception) the Only True Christians and Saved People in the Whole Wide World.
Let's see... These are pretty dramatic claims. Do you think they will hold up to scrutiny?
One, money. In Jesus' church, there was not a constant drumbeat for the members to give more and more and more money. In fact, many leaders in the early church took no salary, and those who did received the same meager amount that was given to widows in the church to live on. That's not much!
No $650,000 condos or $300,000 annual salaries like in Kip's churches in more recent times. Here's a blog post I wrote a couple months ago talking more in depth about how Kip's church treats the topic of money differently than Jesus' church did. And here's a bit more on the topic of money in Kip's churches. And there will be more still, later.
