Re: Anonymous Calls For Reform In The UPCI

Funny, these young so-called wannabe Pentecostals want to revise what was founded through prayer, fasting and tears.

The author of that petition should go find another organization to hound. Wannabes like those get on my nerves! Also, that petition was just laughed at by high ranking UPCI officials.

They were voted 1Cor 2v4 over many years .... it is a political process.

Men prayed, fasted and had tears on many sides of various issues.

What if seperate campmeetings were not permitted? Then pastors would have to actually come up with reasons for the things they preach and couldn't just drag their kids off into the woods some place and spend a week "inspecting" underwear.

While I don't see the petition having much effect at this time, I don't see KH, JJ and company really "laughing" at the idea either.

And what about those controversial "dress codes" was ever "founded through prayer, fasting and tears?"
