You came to church to be one with God. Why would we deny you that opportunity rather than facilitate it for you?
As a people, we are very joyful. While we are taught morality, character, and responsibility, the Charismatic Universalist Church understands that perfection is a star to steer your ship by. However, if you focus so much on the star that you stop paying attention to the boat, you’ll run aground.
We strive to be moral and upright; to serve God and to be nonjudgmental and merciful to others. However, we are human and we tend to fall short. That’s what “sin” means: it is an archery term that means “to miss the mark.” Again, the center was the intended target, but we often miss it. When we do, we confess, make amends, and pick ourselves up again.
That’s why we say we “practice” our faith. We can never “do” or “be” Christians in the fullest sense. We “practice Christianity.”
