Read various articles on the Promise Keepers
I was once very much involved in the Promise Keepers Movement. I attended the Raise the Standard Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1995 and the Stand in the Gap Sacred Assembly of Men, on the Mall in Washington, D.C, on October 4, 1997. Both events were very inspiring to me, and on the surface, very much what I thought God was involved in. But like all ventures that man has his hands in, Promise Keepers became something other than what God had in mind. At the end of the day, on the Mall in Washington, D.C, I heard a message that concerned me greatly. It was a call to unity. As good as the events that I had attended were, this call to unity took the wind right out of my sails. I had to ask myself, “Would God promote unity at the expense of truth”? The call to unity included respecting other religious organizations by promising to not proselytize to them. What does that say about our faith? Does that mean our faith is just as valid as that of other religious groups? Can two opposing truths be just as valid? And what do we do about false teachers, false doctrine, and false prophets? Do we unite with those organizations and ignore their false hope, which will lead them to hell? This is where I parted company with Promise Keepers. I saw it back on the Mall of Washington D.C. in 1997, and as you read the articles below, I am not the only one that has a problem with the organization. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I won’t compromise truth, for the sake of unity.
