black for a reason

A NECF Reply

Wednesday, September 28, 2005 read close 1 speaks

If you follow my previous entry, you will notice I discovered several interesting facts (from the article Ministers Appreciation Month - October), and I wrote an email in response to NECF, under the motivation by miss phui.


To whom it may concern,

I came across this article (http://www.necf.org.my/eventsmaster.cfm?&menuid=13&action=viewevent&retrieveid=109 ) about Ministers Appreciation Month (October), which was a summary taken from an article originated from World Network Prayer of United Pentecostal Church International, and I have a few questions regarding this article, and will be glad if NECF could assist me in giving me answers.

I would appreciate if NECF could explain to me on the relation between NECF and UPCI, and NECF's stand about UPCI.

According to my understanding, UPCI does not believe in Trinity, they only believe that Holy Father, Holy Son and Holy Spirit are just representation/manifestation of Jesus Christ himself, alone. I was told too that only people who are baptize in the name of Jesus Christ will be saved (Acts 2:38), and not in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, which was mentioned in Matthew 29:18-19.

If NECF does not agree with such teaching, my next question would be, would you use any articles from such parties? if yes, why?

Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.


Truly appreciated the prompt reply from NECF.


Dear Bro. Lau,
Thank you for your e-mail to NECF dated Sept 21.
I am replying on behalf of Ann Low our Executive Secretary in charge of Prayer. She was the one who posted the article on the NECF website but she's not around at the moment (she called to ask me to reply on her behalf). Ann was not fully aware of the wrong teachings of the United Pentecostal Church. She just thought they had a good article and so she summarized it for us.
Of course NECF believes in the Holy Trinity in the orthodox way!
Thank you for being alert. We shall try to be more careful next time. We also regret all inconveniences caused.
Thank you once again.

It's interesting at times to read at Google News, especially on the Sci/Tech section, whereby I could save lots of money instead of buying expensive computer mags that has little content in it. Rather interesting today as #12 post is actually not into computer technologies, at the least, not very mainstream in my opinion.

God and science don't mix. Frankly, I don't understand how it goes up to #12. Glitch on the system ranking? hah :P


Confused, Me or You?

A mere accident of visiting NECF Website, and I discovered two three things.

1. Latter Rain church is a member church of NECF (Link Here).

2. NECF published an article for Minister Appreciation Month, October 2005 which is summarized from an article produced by World Network of Prayer, United Pentecostal Church International. (Link Here).

3. Presbyterian church is a member church of NECF (Link Here).

In my understanding, both (1,2) are labelled by many as cult. What do you think?

And I didn't realise Presbyterian Malaysia joined NECF.



Update (28 Sept 2005):
Is anyone familiar with Latter Rain, and willing to share? I am interested to know more. Question will still be, is it cult? or not?
