Churches to have 'hard discussion' about Scouts

With the decision Thursday (May 23) to open the Boy Scouts of America membership to homosexual youth, the 70,000 faith-based organizations, including many churches, that have championed the virtues of "duty to God" and moral straightness by sponsoring local troops must decide whether to cut ties with the Scouts or continue their association with evangelistic outreach in mind.

Of the 100,000 chartered Scouting units in the United States, 70 percent are sponsored by faith-based organizations. Some took decisive stands against loosening membership standards, while leadership from other church groups voiced murkier positions. Numerous Southern Baptist leaders voiced opposition to the policy change.

Church leaders said the decision of affiliation with the Boy Scouts would be made at the local level. ...

I still believe that the Catholic Church was founded by Jesus but that some false doctrines came into the church. There is no similarity between Roman Catholicism and Hinduism because Catholicism has always worshipped Jesus as God whereas Hinduism never has worshipped Jesus as God.

Neil, if you looked at the video about the UPC, it is not your typical Charismatic Chaos church, this one has no second hand, no minute hand, and it might be lucky to have an hour hand--they don't believe in the Trinity--so they're lucky to right at all. So, I suggest you take a look at the YouTube, and notice it's probably as bad as the Jehovah Witness organization.

I would agree with you implication, that major errors even ones that may be different in different religious groups, can make them worthless to spread and use the Word.

John Y., don't forget some say the Romish Church was started by Christ but even if this were true, The Church of Rome Steps Into Apostasy (PDF) and the Romish Church couldn't be distinguished from a sect of Hinduism.

"Churches to have hard discussion about scouts"

Liberal churches will approve of the abomination of scouts and proclaim the rejection of Scripture and morals and the acceptance of sin.

"Orthodox" churches will never be heard by society, politicians or scouts.

Please gentlemen, for the sake of those reading, get your facts straight in these discussions, thanks. The Boy Scouts was founded by Baden Powell, a British Freemason. Freemasonry is an antichrist, satanic occult religion.

I was young then, & why should you fear for someone who clearly has no use for Pentecostal spiritual fraud? In any case, United Presbyterians (now PCUSA) may have been more staid than Pentecostals, but no less dangerous in their Progressive embrace of Neo-orthodoxy. But even Pentecostals, like the proverbial stopped clock, get Scripture right on rare occasions.

what's so hard about it? have no fellowship with such things, and why cannot the fathers take their sons on camping trips, learn to tie a knot, why can't churches build gardens and teach about animal husbandry.... perhaps we'd get past these things as a pasttime or rite of passage and integrate these necessary skills back into society where they are sorely needed.

UPC, abbreviation for the church name. If that is the United Pentecostals -VS- Christianity- Walter Martin (YouTube). I would certainly hope you now have no connection with it, if its a Presbyterian Church hmm, well.

One of my uncles told of community parenting. He got spanked by neighbor who was unhappy what he was doing! I think he said he deserved it. What happened in a rural Nebr. community 90-100 years ago, probably wouldn't happen now, perhaps unfortunately.

Well, I had no camping skills, which I suppose the BSA would have taught, but especially after my Army experience, I have little desire to camp anyway.

The article that SA put up was excellent, the comment on why the SBC churches should keep the Boy Scouts was good, but I think the comment on why they shouldn't was even better.

Why was I not surprised by the Methodist representative? It speak volumes about the UMC, this isn't volumes, but it does point out the problems of UMC, United Methodists at the End of the Mainline.

Anyway, my church only has Awana.

The trouble with Scouting is that it's surrogate parenting; the Scoutmaster is a substitute Dad. And while we did plenty of backpacking, which was well, I got no more Biblical teaching from my church-hosted troop than from my father. Perhaps the UPC was only interested in collecting rent.
