Grace United Community Church of Christ of Saint Paul, MN is only a Social Club, and Rev. Oliver White is only the Master of Ceremonies, they call it a church so they can enjoy Tax Exemptions.

In a true Christian church the Lord Jesus Christ is revere and worship through obedience, the people does not worship a bunch of perverts trying to pass as normal, since it would constitute idolatry or the fear of man.

We read in Proverbs 29:25,“Fear of man will prove to be a snare, but whoever trusts in the LORD is kept safe.”

Rev. Oliver White said:“I knew so many gay and lesbian people as people and I couldn't for 1,000 years imagine why they shouldn't have the same privileges that heterosexuals have.”

Apparently, Rev. White must lead Sunday’s services with the local Telephone Book or perhaps with the Dinner Menus of the local restaurants, otherwise he would have known the following Bible passage found in 1 Corinthians 5: 7 –13,“Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast—as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. Therefore let us keep the Festival, not with the old yeast, the yeast of malice and wickedness, but with bread without yeast, the bread of sincerity and truth. I have written you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people— not at all meaning the people of this world who are immoral, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world. But now I am writing you that you must not associate with anyone who calls himself a brother but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or a slanderer, a drunkard or a swindler. With such a man do not even eat. What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside? God will judge those outside.” Expel the wicked man from among you.”

Glad to hear he lost the church, that kind of thinking is destroying churches across this country, they want to open it up so they get some gay's and pedophiles in the door and the normal people leave, our church tried the same thing a few years ago, now the building is empty, we left before the service was over after we herd the new plans, told the "pastor" as I walked out I hoped they were broke and on the street within a year, they lost the building 9 months later, I was glad to hear it..
