Re: Are we talking about philanthropy or being the Church?

"But to be the Church, we must prescribe to what the Head of the Church
- Christ Jesus - teaches. This is the minimum. We may say as a
congregation that we want to be as inclusive as possible. To be a true
vine, we can only be as inclusive as Jesus was. We can only remain in
Him as He remains in the Father. Go outside of His teachings and make
our own rules - or ignore his rules - and we’re no longer the Church.
You’re only a joke and pretenders."

Do you celebrate as Jesus did?  Do you pray as Jesus did?  Do you go to Temple as Jesus did?
