"...to join, couple, link, or unite. It is to maximize strength and unite in a common task, a tool of continuity."
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
'Silence in the face of evil is itself evil: God will not hold us guiltless. Not to speak is to speak. Not to act is to act.' - Dietrich Bonhoeffer
Welcome to the Spring2017 edition of the YOKE Quarterly.
THE CHURCH MILITANT is our platform for radical Christianity. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 6:12)
We are God’s People, the very hands of Christ in this world, and should conduct ourselves in a fashion which exemplifies this fact of our faith.
The Christian Imperative:
“Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good.” (Romans 12:9)
All shall dedicate their complete mental faculties, emotional capabilities, as well as their innermost soul and bodies to the one, singular God. God, that is the source of all clarity, truth, and love.
All shall conduct themselves in a manner of love, protection, and advocacy toward all individuals around the world, with no exception, and in no less of a degree than we afford ourselves.
All shall actively distribute vital information that is beneficial to the those who have the least, and seek relief from suffering the lack the basic physical, intellectual, and spiritual needs of life.
All shall actively advocate and work for the release of all being held by the secular state; providing for those who are violent to be billeted in such a manner that reflects stated provisions of Article II.
All shall conduct themselves with compassion in the act of offering a vision of truth that facilitates clarity and illuminates both barriers and blessings for those who are blind.
All shall actively work to liberate all who are subjugated, suppressed, tormented, and excluded by the tyranny and oppression of the world.
THE PEOPLE'S DAILY BREAD.
The provision of basic daily needs of the people is central to the radical GOOD NEWS Jesus taught. See what it takes to live in your area.
Listen, my son, to your master’s precepts, and incline the ear of your heart.
“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” - Jesus of Nazareth (Matthew 5:11-12)
We believe in one church, which is the body of Christ. But we also believe that "salt must maintain its saltiness" for each limb and organ to function as it is destined by Our Father.
