False church. Extra Ecclesiam nulla salus. Responsible directly for souls being cast into eternal darkness or torture. It might be unfashionable to point out, in Lewes, the everlasting agony that believing heresy brings, and the law has changed to prevent one of many appropriate actions being taken to bring false teachers to repentance at the end. But the faithful shall have victory. It is promised to us. Even here.

You can't ask people to discuss if they don't know what they're meant to be discussing about.

What's to discuss? I just wanted to know what people in Lewes thought of the church. If you haven't been then it's a little harsh to judge. Anyone been?
Billy Bull; why is NF "interesting to research"?

It looks awful from the outside. Inside, I imagine it's like a sports hall with happy clappy people swaying to Christian rock, while a pastor who resembles a double glazing salesman does an impression of a TV evangelist. I could be wrong, but I don't think Palestrina and Choral Evensong will be their thing.

The main thing to bear in mind when it comes to religion is that your right to swing your fist for your imaginary friend ends at my face. Unless you can prove said friend 1) Exists and 2) Actually requires you to punch me in the face.

No one needs to prove he exists...you either have faith or you don't. It's very personal and no one, regardless of religious beliefs or not should be attacked or mocked for it. Kings church is a good community of people. I have been to some happy clappy churches in the past and found it fake (too good to be true and even try hard) but this is a relaxed one that helps people in need and are not too important to welcome newbits! ! I would give it a go if you want and see for yourself.

Like Astrid says. Great church. Their King's Tots is the best playgroup in Lewes, but a long waiting list, sadly.
Feel free to come and see for yourself, any Sunday at 10 am. If you live in Lewes or nearby you will find people you know there. Don't come on 27 Aug though - we are all off camping in the Weald.

If you were to propose a law that you thought should apply to everyone, and your justification for that was that your god said so, then of course you should have to prove your god exists.
If you can't then you have no justification for wanting that law to apply to everyone.

You still don't make any sense. What laws are you talking about? Lol I don't expect everyone to be Catholic just because I am. I have more non religious friends than religious ones. Do I want everyone to be tolerant /excepting of all religions...well yes of course I do. Maybe you should go to church and ask more questions to find out more and what faith means!!

Out of interest Astrid, are you for or against same sex marriage?

I am for same sex marriages. There are some outdated beliefs which I hope can be changed in time our new pope is good. He has said people that are gay deserves apologies and should not be out cast because of who they are... they need understanding. You have to understand Ethiest too that thousands of years of belief can't be changed just like that. Times will change and for the church to continue it has to aswell.

Why are you so fixated on same sex relationships, Atheist too?
Christians can offend a lot more people than that small minority.
You couldn't join King's church if you were in a heterosexual relationship with someone you were not married to. That is a rather more common situation, even in Lewes.

Fair meadow that is a myth!! You will be welcomed no matter what sexuality, relationship status. There is a gay man in my church. Please don't spread outdated untruths.
On 31 Jul 2017 at 8:21am Fairmeadow wrote:
Agreed, Astrid, that you would be welcomed to services or other events whatever your relationship status. We are all sinners, and it was sinners Jesus came to minister to. As He taught, it isn't the well who need a doctor. But His teaching about sex outside marriage, and about a whole range of other sins from anger to drunkenness to dishonesty to failing to love your neighbour, is clear. You would not be invited into membership at King's, or other New Frontiers churches, if you chose to continue to ignore it. Biblical teaching about that is also pretty unambiguous.
We do offer members very nice and very inexpensive weddings.
