For the last couple of days I have been seeing something of great concern to me going around on Face Book. The Zyxter Church Movement. Several people have sent me suggestions to join this group, I have even had one of the pastors of this movement friend request me. Which when I researched the name came up as an bogus alias. Something really rang my alarm when I started checking this movement out. I spent several hours researching this movement and there are parts of it that are ok not fine, but just ok and a lot of it that I am sorry to report are not biblical.
To begin with there statement of doctrinal belief s are very general which is a problem. Through my research I have found that they are discouraging people from going to their local church, which in turn is not biblical. One very troubling statement I found in their beliefs is as follows.
"What if people of all races, economics, political persuasions, and sexual orientations came together because of our common brokenness and need for redemption?"
There's nothing inherently wrong about that statement, though for a variety of reasons it throws up a red flag. It has been suggested that this church teaches "a need for God" without teaching a need for repentance. I see nothing to confirm that, though the quote above suggests the possibility. I also see nothing to confirm it, so I think it would be wise to ask about this before associating with them. Asking for God's blessings without repentance is not Biblical. Continuing in a gay lifestyle, for instance, is not the way to be a Christian. Nothing about being a Christian says you'll not sin again, but continuing to flaunt non-Biblical lifestyles is not what the Bible teaches.
I can't say that they're 100% Biblical. It is hard to tell from just a few videos, but if you get involved, the best advice is to do as the Bereans did. Measure every statement through scripture to make sure it is valid. Make sure you understand the context of the scriptures they use don't let them pull apart scripture and twist God's Word.
It has also been suggested they approve of Joel Osteen, who is one of the emergent church pastors who I don't believe follows a Biblical message, I'm very concerned about the emergent church and the modern "benefits without responsibility" message and there salvation with out repentance messages. My suggestion again is if you are going choose to get involved with this movement measure it against Gods' Word all the way! However, I personally would stay away from this movement until they can clarify there beliefs and prove that they are biblical and sound in their teachings.
