Without Prejudice

This email is so good that I just had to share it. It's one of those emails that begins with courtesy, moves to confusion, and gradually builds in rage until it explodes forth in hysteria and bombast (as well as making the counterintuitive suggestion that adherence to the creeds makes you more likely to be a cult). The sign-off, for me, is the best bit. Behold:


Can you please let me know your statement of faith?

Thank you for enquiring about our statement of belief. It is as follows:

As part of the universal church, we hold to the ecumenical creeds (the Apostles’, Nicene-Constantinopolitan, Chalcedonian and Athanasian Creeds).  As Protestant Christians, we affirm that justification is by faith alone, and stand in the tradition of Reformation confessional documents like the Heidelberg Catechism, although we believe water baptism is only for believers.  As contemporary evangelicals, we also affirm modern statements such as the Lausanne Covenant and the Evangelical Alliance statement of faith.

Every blessing,
Yours etc [on behalf of Newfrontiers].

Thanks for your reply.

I’m a little confused with this answer - I expected a clear statement of faith with Bible proofs; not a mixed-up, contradictory bunch of nonsensical statements about belief in semi-biblical creeds made by lukewarm church attenders.

How can a “protestant” Christian be involved in ecumenism? Ecumenism is cancer to the body of Christ. Ecumenism will lead to the One World Religion.

I’ll leave the rest to the leaders of your cult to work out their salvation with fear and trembling - their judgement is nigh.

Without prejudice,
