Nazarenes concerned for Nazarene University pagan and mystic practices

A well known Nazarene college has taken on some unusual practices, for the holiness doctrine, denomination.

Richmond Evangelical Examiner (R.E.E.) attempts to follow up with reader concerns or interest. One reader, emailed a web link to a page on a web log site entitled, 'Reformed Nazarene (click here to read the article)'. The title of the article immediately draws concern or indifference.

R.E.E. followed up with Pastor Wynne Lankford of Southside Nazarene Church in Southside Richmond, Virginia for an opinion on the article and submitted an opinion from another Nazarene minister, Scott Marshall......Continue to editorial page


  1. Sounds like a battle of denominations. If you want to get right down to it, DENOMINATIONS themselves are not Biblical. Nazarenes, Wesleyans, Reformists, Catholics, Baptists, etc... all need to make Jesus Christ the Head of their "churches".

    I believe that denominations form because people make a secondary doctrine more important that the basics of the Gospel. Churches split all the time because of this. There is strength when like-minded people meet and organize, but there is also tremendous risk that the very thing that brought them together will tear them apart; only a pure worshipping of Jesus and reverence of the Bible as His Holy Word can join people forever.

    I think I'm rambling again.... :)

  2. A Prayer From Jesus

    Jesus has giving this task to me. For someone has to tell you,

    You ARE, going to hell

    Why? You ask. You believed man instead of what Jesus has established as salvation. For those who do not want to end up in the lake of fire Pray this prayer

    These are the last days, This is your last chance.
    Pray the Prayer from Jesus, and KNOW!


    This prayer is from Jesus that we may hear from Him, that He may speak to our hearts. It only consist of three simple steps.

    1, We need to read one scripture. This will focus us in the word that brings everlasting life.

    2, Since this prayer is from Jesus we need to direct our prayer to Him personally. Too often Christian focuses they're prayer's to G_D or Father. Scripture proclaims, that Jesus should be the focus of our prayer.

    3, The simplest part of this Prayer is to ask Jesus one question. Please, all that is required for this question is that it should be simple. Let Jesus Himself finish the question when He gives you that understanding through this prayer.
    The PRAYER

    A) The scripture that is the focus of this prayer is "ACTS 2:38". It's not necessary to do any study into this scripture. Jesus will give you the understanding that will resonate in your heart. Just read Acts 2:38, keep it in your heart and take this one scripture to prayer

    B) The most important part of this prayer is that we need to direct our prayer directly to Jesus. If you normally would say Father in your prayer, change your focus from the Father to Jesus, by lifting Jesus name up every time you would normally use Father in your prayer.

    C) Maybe the hardest part of this prayer is the question that we need to ask Jesus. For man is always trying to understand the question, instead of listening to the answer. The simplest question is all that is required.

    Simply ask Jesus, 'WHY'?

    For those who are obedient
