A qoute from Martyn Lloyd-Jones summs up much of what was said this morning:
'Is it right to tolerate in the same church people whose views on the essentials of the faith are diametrically opposed? Is it right that we belong to the same company, calling itself a church, as men who deny almost everything we stand for - the Deity of our Lord, the Virgin Birth, His miracles, His Atoning Sacrificial Death, the punitive and substitutionary elements of in the Atonement, our Lord's literal physical resurrection, the Person of the Holy Spirit, Regeneration, Justification by faith only, the "blessed hope" of our Lord's return? Is it rightin the light of New Testament teaching that we regard such people "brethren"; that we refer to people who never darken the doors of a place of worship as "lapsed Christians" simply because thay have been baptized as infants? Is that compatible with the New Testament teaching with regard to the church, and het purity, and her discipline, and her life? Martin Lloyd-Jones, The Puritan (Banner of Truth, 1987), p. 69

And also Francis Schaeffer on Co-operation and Compromise:
'We must practise the truth even when it is costly. We must practise it when it involves church affiliation or evangelistic cooperation. There is a difference between having discussion with a liberal theologian and inviting him to pray in our programme' (The Church at the End of the Twentieth Century, 1970, p. 49).

At Cambridge Community Church were we as a family worship, we would not be able to let somebody teach that doesn't believe in the basics(as I see it) of Christianity. May God guide us all to pray for these people to see the light!
