The Theology of Inclusion


The Theology of inclusion is based on the teaching of Jesus about judgment and grace, "Do not judge so that you may not be judged." (Matthew 7:1); "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." (John 3:16). The majority of Christians have come to believe quite the opposite, some of these are church leaders. These Christians have decided that it is perfectly appropriate to judge others and to declare an abomination what isn't condemned by the Bible, but usually only for certain practices or beliefs that they have decided are contrary to God’s will. Thus the Church has often allowed prejudice to become rampant and even dominant in its philosophy of life. The Theology of inclusion strives to be accepting and non-judgmental toward others.

The traditional Christianity has come to exclude certain people. Some are excluded because they have been divorced. Others because they are single parents. Still others because they are homosexuals. Actually, The traditional Christianity has been presented as a heterosexual, nuclear family and wealthy religion. Inclusive Christians know that this is not the Christianity that Jesus proclaimed and taught. It is not the message of the Bible.


The truth religion taught by the the Bible is:



"If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person's religion is worthless. Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world."

James 1:26-27


"See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ."

Colossians 2:8


"Here there is not Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave, free; but Christ is all, and in all."

Colossians 3:8
