"Why aren't you part of the family?" I hoarsed, sending my throat dry.
We played around with it a little more, but when we settled he said that he couldn't find fault with any of the main areas of their doctrine.
They appeared to be okay.
As I didn't know anything about them I decided to do a quick check to see what they were all about. Upon perusing their website I went to their statement of faith and pretty much couldn't find fault with any of their points.
Until I got near towards the end under the heading labelled "Perspectives on Sexuality".
They talked about how God created sex (correct) and that it is a natural emotional and physical need (ok, somewhat agree) and that sex is to be between a man and a woman (agree). The topic then ended with this...
Thus, it is our belief that heterosexual relations, when practiced as God ordained, designed, and intended between consenting adults of legal age, is a pure and natural wonder of God's creation, and permissible according to Scripture.
Did anybody else pick up something that was kinda lacking... you know, a small little thing??
I mean, as from their statement of faith it appears that it's okay to have heterosexual sex *JUST* provided they are of legal age!
Aaaah, guys... what about God ordaining sex within the confines of, oh I dunno, a little thing called MARRIAGE???
I soon discovered from reading other websites that this little organisation is aptly labelled the "sex cult"! (The Family has many different names and perhaps the most notorious is The Children Of God for those who might know)
Anyhoo, I contacted my friend again and when he asked about what I had found I quite simply said,
"Dude, if they come round again sign me up!"
(I don't want AIDS.)
