Resolutions, Items Adopted at Recent International General Assembly

logo2“Items debated by the General Council of the Church of God, as well as resolutions, were recently adopted at the 76th International General Assembly in Nashville, Tennessee.

The General Assembly, which consists of all registered delegates ages 16 and older, met in session on Friday, July 22 and eventually passed several pieces of legislation that will now be added to the Church of God MINUTES.

All leaders nominated by the General Council earlier in the week were easily adopted and included the five members of the Executive Committee and the directors and assistant directors of World Missions and Youth and Discipleship. Next, a report on the meaning and usage of the term “Bishop” was presented. This study will be brought back to the 2018 International General Council…”http://www.faithnews.cc/?p=23051

Tipuri de afilieri in Church Of God

church_of_God_clevelandCei mai multi romani penticostali, inclusiv cei de la Biserica Crestina Agape din Glendale Arizona( https://dorinpele.wordpress.com/2014/12/12/experimentul-viabil-de-la-biserica-agape-continuapetru-lascau-avantajele-de-a-fi-in-church-of-god/), cred ca exista doar un singur mod de afiliere cu Church of God. Din pacate nu este asa. Observati in facsimile-ul de mai jos preluat din Manualul de afiliere cu COG pag.4 , ca exista doua tipuri de afilieri: “Amalgamation” si “Association”. COG AffiliationCele mai multe biserici romanesti au ales optiunea de “amalgamare”. Prin acest tip de afiliere proprietatea trece pe Church of God. Pe actul de proprietate la fiecare biserica romaneasca, care s-a afiliat cu
Church of God are “Warranty Deed” pe numele Church of God pe care scrie clar “For the benefit of Church of God”
Deci pe documentul de marketing scrie ca “warranty deed for the local church” dar pe documentul juridic spune “for the benefit of Church of God”. Se poate observa aceasta in documentul de mai jos.

DEFINITION of ‘Warranty Deed’
A document that may be used to legally transfer property. A warranty deed states that the owner can legally transfer the property and that no other entity has a claim or lien on it. These deeds are typically used in property sales and make warranties about the property’s title.

COG Comparation

Iar mai jos este scrisoarea fratelui Petru Lascau, pastor la aceea vreme(2004) a Bisericii Elim din Arizona, trimisa membrilor pentru a prezenta doar avantajele(binenteles ca intr-o forma foarte subiectiva) afilierii cu Church Of God evitand sa mentioneze avantajele unei astfel de afilieri pentru pastori. De fapt, cele mai mari beneficii in urma unei astfel de afilieri le are pastorul. Din pacate pastorii ascund aceste lucruri de ochii bietelor oite. Doamne ai mila!

Penticostalismul este singura religie crestina din America in crestere.

“National Council of Churches’ (NCC) a publicat in editia de anul acesta a” Yearbook of American & Canadian Churches”  un raport despre 25 din cele mai mari denominatii  crestine din America. Dintre toate doar doua denominatii penticostale  se bucura de cresterea numarului de membri. Este vorba despre  “Assemblies of God “(AG) din Springfield, Missouri si  “Church of God ” din  Cleveland, Tennesse. “Adunarile lui Dumnezeu”( Assemblies of God) au ajuns la  2.9 milioane de membri iar “Biserica lui Dumnezeu” (Church of God) la  1 milion. S-a constat un declin usor  la Biserica Romano-Catolica (Roman Catholics) si Bisericile Baptiste din Sud (Southern Baptist Churches). Printre Bisericile cu cea mai mare scadere a numarului de membri se numara: ” United Church of Christ”, ” African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church” ,  “Presbyterian Church”, ” Lutheran Church – Missouri Synod, si “Evangelical Lutheran Church in America”
Cele mai mare numar de membri continua sa-l aiba “Biserica Romano-Catolica” cu 67 de milioane  si “Bisericile Baptiste din Sud” cu 16 milioane.
