Re: “The name, or self-definition of the Group”

Kluge is almost correct in the way he renders our point of view. We are and do not want to be anything other than Christians. We also reject the name “True Christians” as already mentioned above.

Every specific denominational name is in contradiction to the will of God who wants only one community.

Whoever insists on the existence of various different churches shows that he is not interested in unity and that he is a destroyer of God’s temple.

“If anybody should destroy the temple of God, God will destroy that person…” (1 Cor 3:17)

Using the terms “catholic”, “evangelical”, “orthodox” to refer to the one church is correct in as much as there is only ONE catholic (universal, all-embracing) church, only ONE church living in accordance with the “euangelion” (gospel), preserving the sound teaching (orthodox). As soon as those names are used to distinguish one group from another they are incorrect (a particular group isn’t universal, orthodox, evangelical any more) and express a rebellion against God’s will to be in unity.

We don’t know of any “Holic-group”. So-called “cult-experts”, if they want to be objective and taken seriously would not use any name to describe a group which the community in question rejects as contradicting their own principles.
