Then please tell us, who ? has even bothered, to properly define what actually equals what the “Christian faith” is.
I mean .Otherwise absolutely anyone can decide ? to choose to just make it all up for themselves, as they go along.
Just like the abusive cults do !!
I mean maybe its fair to say that sharing the “Christian” faith is charitable . But then we know how some Christians will often be heard to claim, how they feel that only certain groups are actually practicing the “real” true form, of what “real” Christianity actually is.
Yet this is like a case of slippery-Christians, choosing to use a kind of loop-hole, that Christians will like to use. It’s constantly being used like it’s an “escape” route. A way to absolve these Christians, of any responsibility or guilt, of ongoing harm being caused to some people
Yet how can the law ever be clear ? about Christianity being charitable. If Christians can’t even yet agree, to finally get together,and begin to properly define ,what they agree “real Christianity” is .
Are they expecting society ? to need to just award charitable status , to any/every old group, that starts claiming to also be “Christians” too.
No that shouldn’t be what happens. Because, that way, any group at all, can also claim to be Christian. Even the abusive groups , that other Christians will be busy saying are not real Christian
Christian today, goes on to say
Quote “A note of caution – the Charity Commission has become an arbiter of church practice ” end quote
Well if Christians themselves, didn’t care to all get together , and try to work out some better guidelines, among themselves , for themselves
The why ? bleat about it. When the Charity commission , or somebody else like them, decides on stepping in themselves, and taking a good look at it
We get sick to death of these sorts of Christians. Like the “Christian today” types of people
1 . Who choose to turn a blind eye to all these ongoing faith-abuse problems. Far preferring to just do nothing about it
2. Who then will also choose to be seen, and be heard “spitting the dummie” as well.
When some body else steps-in ,and decides to try and do something more about it
What else do they expect ? to happen
