As usual, UCG resorts to the tired and worn out "fear factor" that has been vomited out for 8 decades by various church leaders, and that is that anyone who leaves the COG does so because they have heeded the doctrine of demons when they departed from the faith. Immediately, every UCG member stops to think that if they ever dare leave the church they will quite possibly be taken over by demons. When will COG members ever wake up to the fact that if they do decide to leave the church they are NOT doing so because of demon influence and that their minds are NOT defiled!
A Seared Conscience
The Bible talks about a seared conscience. Paul wrote, “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron” (1 Timothy 4:1-2, emphasis added throughout). He also wrote, “To the pure all things are pure, but to those who are defiled and unbelieving nothing is pure; but even their mind and conscience are defiled” (Titus 1:15).So what is a poor church member to do if they leave and have some regrets?

The Ultimate Solution
So what is the ultimate solution to the pain, suffering and injury humankind has inflicted upon one another for a millennia?
How will the healing of the mind and seared consciences begin?
The only true way to eradicate moral injury is through the restoration of all things, the restoration of the law of God!
It’s the removal of sin and the installation of a new way of doing things. It’s a spiritual solution. It’s a return to holiness.In the Church of God, the Law trumps everything, including Jesus. Surprisingly though, Jesus dude does get a couple of paragraphs at the end of the article, where he always seems to be relegated. It ends with the claim that UCG FULLY understands the plan of God for the world. The fact remains, after 25 years, they do NOT!
We Must Be Cleansed Now
The blood of Jesus Christ our Savior is what cleanses our conscience, is what cleanses our sins, is what cleanses us from immorality and moral injury. It’s a spiritual solution.
As people who fully understand the plan God has for the world, we must take our calling seriously and act upon it. We must have a clean conscience and remove sin and all types of moral impurity that can injure our minds.
