a) a open, published,
monitorable child protection policy should be in operation from the first
day. This policy should regulate all Church affairs relating to children,
in such a manner that children are protected from abuse and other dangers,
taking care that at no time males from age 13 and over are left alone with
little children, or others much older than them alone with them.
must be encouraged to freely comment on adult behaviour towards them
- openly, without fear or secrecy. They should be periodically invited
to comment on adult misbehaviour towards them: this first in writing, then,
if according to the child, or according to the examination team (never
one person) any abuse has taken place, then a meeting must be planned within
7 days. This policy should also see that children are regularly questioned
about their well-being in the church, and by independent externals from
all acceptable walks of live.
should act as protectors of the children and this should not be the care
of one individual, as the congregation is the child-protection manager,
assisted by the general public.
All members and children
must be made to understand that churches, and especially Catholic ones,
are ideal places for paedophiles to target and harbour around kids.
It must be understood that churches are affright to expose paedophiles,
and that many are threatened by the pedos not to expose them for, if they
do, they, the pedos, will expose other paedophiles in the church etc.
fear, and the foolish trust put in churches by most people, is used very
cleverly by the paedophiles. So, any true Church of Christ would
guard the house against these, by introducing rules: save if they are either
foolish, or just overlooked the matter. But this can not be foolishness
or carelessness anymore - I can't accept that; and it is
my opinion that fools should not run churches (matter of fact, Christ would
not call them to do so) and that careless people simply cannot be this
b) No one should be
placed above an other but rather: they occupy a position in a certain area
of the platform. And at all times should the first (if you do not
manage to evade this position) remember that he/she should be a servant,
a humble one, a servant to the congregation, as Christ was, and also states
that we should be. He/she should also be made to wash the feet of
the members of the Church once or twice yearly, publicly, so that he too,
at all times remembers that he/she is but a servant. For Christ,
acknowledging that such is the nature of men that one will somehow become
the leader, has stated that the greatest among you shall be the servant.
- whoever is exposed
as a bold, premeditated transgressor against the commandments of God, safe
the small accidental transgressions we all have, must be publicly named
and announced, naming his transgression to all the people; not in secret
to the Church, but to all the people, without fear of men.
- it must be made
clear at all times that Christ is the leader of the Church and not the
- it must be made
clear to all member that they should not follow the organization but Christ.
So, they do not follow the founders/leader but together you follow Christ.
- names/titles such
as 'Reverend' should not be used. You are like Christ, so you are just
'John' 'Fred' or whatever.
- the worldly titles
as 'Doctor' or 'Professor' should not be used to draw people near you or
to enchant them, for they are naught in the kingdom of heaven.
- all finances of
the Church should be open and members should be free to check on spending
- all members must
understand what a believer is, what one in repentance is and what a Christian
- all members must
be labelled 'Believer' 'Repenting Christian' or 'Christian', this to constantly
remind them of what a Christian is, so that you attract true Christians
and seekers of salvation. And surely, the conman already notes that
this may end up a very small church: but then many are called but few are
chosen; and the first shall be the last and the last shall be the first.
The only good Church in Revelations 3:7 was also the small, poor
church. Jesus is so pleased with them that he saved them from the
hour of trial!
d) All members must
be subject to scrutiny from each other. You are not a bunch of lukewarm
jokers but true Christians; so if one knows one of the supposedly baptized
Christians to be a fornicator or adulterer, let him expose him/her to the
congregation - no secrecy, no hypocrisy. You are a house of
God, not of Satan, are you? So who do you fear? Men, or God?
e) If there are members
who are prominent they should not be allowed to wear designer clothes and
live worldly lives, save when their jobs really demand this (and I think
of show biz etc.) for that is not the way of Christ.
These are some of the
foundation principals any church must be structured on.
But once again: The fast
majority of churches practice the law of men, not that of God. I loath
this practice and I rather see them all banned if not controlled by pain
of law, so that false churches/ministries are dealt with: finances confiscated
and distributed to charities etc. Many churches are possessed by
the demons of worldly lust and greed; and these rule over them. We
must hate all the things God hates; and we must understand that to hate
evil is to love good.
Do love your neighbour as
you love your self, but do not worry when you hate evil so much that you
over-cook. Before you absolutely hate evil you cannot absolutely
love good. God hates evil, and so must you.
Here another thing I think
should be done:
All churchgoers should be
classified in three categories and visibly so.
a) the interested:
these are not christians, nor believers, just curious - they (for example) wear
a Blue, circular patch on their clothing.
b) the believers:
these are not yet christians, but they do believe in the existens of God
and Jesus to be the son of God - Christ.
c) the believers
whom are in repentance, perhaps waiting to get married to then baptize
- they wear Orange patches.
d) the repented and
baptized christians, these are not cold, nor lukewarm, but hot
- these wear Red patches.
If anyone of the clergy then commits fornication
or other transgressions against the constitution of Christ, one can see
their classification and judge the matter soundly.
If an offender was classification
Red, this one should be expelled at once, else you are a whore church!
But, as I said before: I don't like churches and we best stay away from
them: just follow the Gospel and stay away from them.
