Doctrine of Judgment

Has anyone checked out the Doctrine of Judgment for the Church of Wells?  There is all sorts of crazy there.  I particularly find interesting their justification of how stoning is still biblically justifyable (Jesus would have happily allowed the stoning of the woman adulterer in John 8 had the man been there too) and how it is biblical to dishonor your father and mother.

Re: Doctrine of Judgment

The Doctrine of Judgement is disturbing at best! The familial judgement in chapter 10 is especially alarming. God created families and through out the Bible there are many examples of loving families together, the prodigal son etc. We have to remember it was writtten by a man and NOT inspired by "a word from God". I do not believe that God will stand for this type of behavior for long. Bring on the tornado!

Re: Doctrine of Judgment

They have a core doctrinal document called "The Doctrine of Judgment" which appears to be given the same credibility as the rest of scripture.

This core doctrine explains that true believers will lose their salvation and be condemned to hell if they fellowship with people that are not in the light. Their definition of people not in the light or people in some kind of darkness includes any family members or friends that disagree with the Church of Wells teachings.  Their definition of fellowship includes spending any time with family/friends that does not involve preaching to them.

The same document teaches that familial relationships are idolatry unless the family members are willing to listen to the Church of Wells teachings. (Willingness to listen to the Church of Wells teachings places you on a scale of 1st most peaceful to 5th most peaceful. 5th Most peaceful is where anyone falls that disagrees with the Church of Wells teachings) If family members or friends are classified as 5th most peaceful, then they are called Dogs, Swine, Infidels, and Ishmaels, that must be cast out.

Below are a few of the sections from their Doctrine of Judgment.

"The grounds and laws for spiritual fellowship have been addressed through the scriptures written in 1 Corinthians 5, 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1, Ephesians 5, and 1 John 1. For all those who truthfully confess the Name of Christ, we do desire and are obligated to keep these God-written Church rules. God is concerned about our fellowship with Him and one another (amongst those who profess the name of Christ). I will remind you that it is written, salvation is to be “called unto the fellowship of His Son Jesus Christ our Lord” (1 Cor. 8:9). As a Christian, I must confess, I have lost everything for Christ (lawfully, spiritually, and in heart), and now I have gained Christ! Alleluia! Therefore when there is ANYTHING that threatens to discontinue fellowship with HIM it is hatefully avoided at any cost! Those things include sin from unregenerate sinners, otherwise called, “the unfruitful works of darkness” (Eph. 5:11). It is written, “Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.” By works of darkness, it is meant: those things which include damnable, unrepentant sin from Christians which merits excommunication from Christian fellowship (which is anything under the name of Christ, or anything where there is a mutual understanding that this is a religious practice which insinuates such a person is accepted and right with God) – such as eating (charity feasts or holy communion), intercession, singing, exhortation, accountability, witnessing, spiritual edification, and assemblies (1 Corinthians 5, 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1).

Remember, we cannot have fellowship with anyone who is not “in the light” (1 John 1:7). “If we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin” (1 John 1:7). We do make it our priority to maintain an atmosphere of “light” with all professing Christians, but if (God forbid) there ever be an occasion where regenerate Christians refuse to acknowledge the necessity for light and they are walking in some kind of darkness, and yet they still desire to have fellowship, this is an impossibility for us and for all those who seek to obey these principles. If such a thing was done it would be a denial of, and offense to, the living Christ, who is Light, who is the supernatural unity and power that wills, moves, speaks, and lives through all of us. This is a deed warned to be of such criminal weight that it endangers such ones to be expelled from the safety of the cleansing blood. With one darkened soul mingled about within, so comes the promised curse that others will fall with him. “One sinner destroyeth much good” (Eccl. 9:18). This must be avoided at all costs. For us, bound in Spirit, it is an impossibility; thus we avoid it as long as God gives us grace. We seek to persevere by the grounds of a biblical assurance, free from the mockery of sowing to the faithful curses warned of in scripture. “God is not mocked, whatsoever a man sows that will he also reap” (Gal. 6:7)."

"Jesus says, at the gain of Him and His family, your carnal family becomes your "foes" (Matt. 10:36). You must be divided from your family for your own salvation, because your family is united in the worldwide divide against God. We are born into a world at war against God, into a family energized by the Devil’s perverse hatred of God. Jesus said you are not a child of your family name but rather of the Devil (John 8:31-51). A war begun by the Devil and allied by man, the sword of gospel power is God’s battle plan to set the captives free. At the scene of war, division is “supposed.” The violent point of a sword pierces through the fighting lines and no one “thinks” it strange, but if these are the spiritual circumstances surrounding a sinner’s conversion to Christ, what shall we “suppose” and “think?” In this way, one may understand the spiritual circumstances surrounding true Christianity and conversion, and so, Christ reproves the astonishment that men have of these truths. He calls it blind hypocrisy, for such a one cannot see the spiritual climate of his own time. This is what Jesus meant in His reproofs in Luke 12:54-56. He is calling men to awaken to spiritual realities, and this is to "discern this time" which they are in (Lk. 12:56)."

5th Most peaceful (which is no peace at all) – All persons in the family are unregenerate and proud, ruthless, vengeful, and raging persecutors, consciously or unconsciously; they cannot help themselves, because they are dominated by the compulsion of emotional hate to invent evils and advance sin and Satan, to the damnation of men and the resistance of the loving Lord Jesus.

These individuals are passionate persecutors. They will not cease without making a large impact against the way of truth. They affect others by their preaching so as to make others bound under their evils, which leave them ill-affected to the truth. They slander (consciously or unconsciously), they hate in emotional hurt, jealousy, anger, and rage. They often scream, lose peaceful control, and so they meet the description of Nabal – “He is such a son of Belial, that a man cannot speak to him” (1 Sam. 25:17). Many parents become such persons after the conversion of their children. They will call every day to preach false doctrines, weep, plead, and do whatever they can do in their power to turn their children from the truth, whether their child is a seeking sinner or a converted Christian.

They will call the law enforcement with slanderous reports, they will rail with the word “cult,” they will think there is brainwashing at use, evil spirits involved, and more. They will call their pastors, send messengers, track their cell phones, haul them to psychiatric wards for an examination, and even kidnap their children by surprise attacks in coalition with police who are willing to break the law. They will track them down, stir up the neighborhood, start blogs, call pastors in other churches to create rallying pity and strength in numbers. They will pray, fast, and write. Oh! How hard it is to relate to such a dear family member like this. All of these things mentioned have happened to one or more individuals in our Church.

During the time that the child of such a parent is seeking the Lord for salvation, drastic measures are taken (by the child’s own will and decision) so that such a person is able to keep their mind on the Lord. The power of the parent’s corrupt speech can make their conversion impossible. After salvation, certain saints are weaker in conscience, faith, and steadfastness than others, and so, with each person and case the severity of separation is different. All decisions of severity in judgment surround the health of the individual Christian’s soul, that righteousness would be maintained at any cost, even if this dog (Php. 3) of a parent misunderstands everything. They are angry and dangerous men to the souls of saints! “Make no friendship with an angry man; and with a furious man thou shalt not go: Lest thou learn his ways, and get a snare to thy soul” (Prov. 22:24-25).

These parents are swine who are ready at any circumstance to outwit you, turn again, and then “rend you.” They must be dealt with accordingly! “Give not that which is holy unto dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you” (Matt. 7:6). If these parents were not so passionately bent on their child’s damnation, and had a willingness and peaceable nature to talk, things would be very different. Sadly, these individuals often lead astray most other family members and so many others: “they are of the world: therefore speak they of the world, and the world heareth them” (1 John 4:5). So many are deceived because of this individual that there must be a contending against them, disrespect for their spiritual influence and authority, lest all the family and others are destroyed. These become men and women worthy to call out by name in public rebuke (2 Tim. 1:15, Tit. 1:13, 2 Tim. 4:14-15), infamy, and humiliation, “men whose mouths must be stopped” (Titus 1:11), men not to peaceably entertain in the Church for one hour (Gal. 2:5).

They are Ishmaels that must be “cast out” for the safety of God’s people (Gal. 4:30). There must be a measure of separation made, and because of the parents’ persistent zeal for perpetual talking and contact so as to evilly effect the child of God, such actions as ignoring them, refusal to speak, or such like things are necessary at times. We cannot engage in such perpetual contentions and folly to the subversion of our souls and the hindrance of our growth – “Answer not a fool according to his folly, lest thou also be like unto him” (Prov. 26:4).

“Cast out the scorner, and contention shall go out; yea, strife and reproach shall cease” (Prov. 22:10). The uttermost severity is required for the continuance of personal and corporate holiness while at odds with such a one like this. Their sins are dangerous and snaring. Do you hear the voice of God today for such ones? “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” (Rev. 18:4).

Suffering is often hard to endure as a Christian. There are few means like suffering that are so used by Satan to shake a soul’s eyesight from the Living Lord. For this reason Paul forewarned, “No man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto. For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know. For this cause, when I could no longer forbear, I sent to know your faith, lest by some means the tempter [Satan] have tempted you, and our labour be in vain” (1 Thess. 3:3-5). We must not be ignorant of Satan’s devices. We must always encourage ourselves to “consider HIM”- Jesus Christ (Heb. 12:3-4).
