Perplexed!

I attend a large ex-UPC church. I found out this week that during our Youth Camp this past summer, our youth were baptized in the "titles" instead of "Jesus name" by the youth leaders! In addition to that, each were told to make the sign of the cross after they came out of the water!

Being born and raised in the Apostolic faith, I am spitting nails! Not only are those youth leaders still in place, I'm not sure they were ever reprimanded!

For the first time in years, I'm contemplating a move. Not sure. Someone has some 'splaining to do!

Re: Perplexed!

The Catholics infiltrated your church. Bwahahaha.

I have read the statement of faith. Doesn't matter if it's titles or name.

Re: Perplexed!

I'd be out of there. Nothing you can say to them is going to change this.

If this were a business I'd ask for a refund lol

Re: Perplexed!

Well, you know what 'they' say....first the 'holiness' standards go, then the message.

Seriously, I've seen this happen too many times.
