Well known author Max Lucado has placed his name on the Covenant for Civility. Who, after all, can argue against such a document, which calls for an end to mean-spirited debate and rancor?
Had this truly been a secular document, there would be no problem. Unfortunately, this document is presented in spiritual terms. It begins with Psalm 133:1: “How good and pleasant it is when the people of God live together in unity.”
The document then states, “As Christian pastors and leaders…”
The Covenant for Civility also refers to “the unity we have in the Body of Christ.”
Incredibly, the agreement also includes a pledge there be “no questioning of the other’s faith…”
Yet Brian McLaren, who rejects the Biblical Christ, is one of the signatories. There are others who reject Jesus Christ, yet have been included.
How do we join in this spiritual agreement when Christ tells us, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.” (John 14:6) Click here to continue reading this article.
