183: The Church of God & Church of God Affirm

Standard

On May 26th, The Church of God (Anderson, IN) put out a post detailing that all official COG correspondence will come from official emails and social media sites and to not be swayed by any other groups claiming to be the Church of God. This vague post leads to speculation and the publicity of Church of God Affirm – people who are/were associated with The Church of God (Anderson, IN), calling on the leadership to affirm LGBTQIA Christians.

In this episode, Scott, Micah, and guest Jordan Halstead discuss who COG Affirm is, did the weak communication from The Church of God, gives more publicity to this group (and others), and what COG does now moving forward (if anything).
