Church of the Nazarene’s Creation Care document

Subject: Church of the Nazarene’s Creation Care document

(I am sending this to several persons)

Hi all,

My wife and I moved from Virginia to Tennessee in the summer of 2006. We have attended the Church of the Nazarene for almost 2 1/2 years and been members for about 2 years. I first learned of the emerging church movement about 2 years ago from a friend in Virginia. Since then I have been paying attention to it, and in the last few months have been spending time almost every day researching and learning more than I want to know about it. I thank each of you for your courage and diligence in exposing this repackaged postmodern liberalism or perhaps a better way of saying it is “another gospel”, a false and deceptive gospel. The Church of the Nazarene desperately needs more who will “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints”.

I have spent some time on the international website of the Church of the Nazarene digging about, and have already found several things that deeply concern me. A few months ago I came across something in the Compassionate Ministries section (http://www.ncm.org/awareness/environment/) called “the Church of the Nazarene’s official statement on creation care”, which is a 62 page PDF document entitled Creation Care – Environmental Stewardship for the Church of the Nazarene (http://www.ncm.org/pdf/creation_care_document.pdf). You may already be familiar with it, but if not I strongly recommend you take the time to read it. Many things in the document are very disturbing, but this statement on page 59 takes the cake: “In this most critical moment in Earth’s history, we are convinced that the central moral imperative of our time is the care for Earth as God’s creation.” I thought the central moral imperative of our time was to reach the lost for Christ and to make disciples of them.

I think this document needs to be brought to light before the faithful and Bible-believing members of the Church of the Nazarene. This article on Earth Day, radical environmentalism, and the worship of Gaia (Mother Earth), also needs to be read by many, as it too is very enlightening: http://www.worldviewweekend.com/worldview-times/article.php?articleid=6089

Again thanks to all for their hard work. In the process you make many enemies, but you also make new friends, better friends.

In Christ,
Mike Yonce
