2 Marriage, Divorce And Re-Marriage

According to our definition above and the teaching of Scripture on marriage: • Marriage was instituted by God between man and woman in the Garden of Eden at the time man was morally pure (Gen. 2:18-25; 1:26-28). • 2.2.2 Marriage is a divine covenant between one man and one woman (heterosexual and monogamous; Gen 1:26-28, 2:18-25, Matt 19:4-6, 1Cor. 7:2). – page 85http://dcuganda.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/DC-Book-_Upload.pdf

3 Polygamy

What should the church do with already existing polygamous marriages? Although there are no quick fixes to the situation of new converts who join our congregations as polygamists, they must be helped to work toward the ideal of transitioning to a monogamous marriage “in a spirit of fulfilling all righteousness.” This process should include: page 91http://dcuganda.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/DC-Book-_Upload.pdf

4 The Role of Women In the Church

As we would expect of the Church as the Body of Christ faithful to Its Head Christ, a large and positive functioning place is given to women. Church ministry involves both men and women. The following points are clear in the New Testament: page 111http://dcuganda.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/DC-Book-_Upload.pdf

5 Hypergrace

Hyper-grace teachers maintain that all sin, past, present, and future, has already been forgiven, so there is no need for a believer to ever confess it. The teaching goes on to say that, when God looks at us, He sees only a holy and righteous people.  page 135http://dcuganda.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/DC-Book-_Upload.pdf
