(Talk about reviving the website that has gone strangely silent. Have we addressed everything?...or just gotten weary of it all?)

NOWHERE!!!
That's as cultish, scary, dark, and despicable as it gets. I remember hearing that one particular Euro-trained elder in California used to do that after ex'ing a member during the ex'ing ritual(members meeting for the purpose of deciding a soul's eternal destiny in hell). In their twisted logic they figured that they had better exercise their obligation to do just that since they initially instructed God to place the convert's name in the Book Of Life when they laid hands on them.

Some Cdn/Amer elders also would pray to instruct God to place the convert's name in the Book Of Life when they laid hands on them but not sure if they also did the 'Euro-trained elder in California' thing.

Who do these guys think they are?

Please tell me that doesn't happen anymore - ANYWHERE! If that still happens in your church with impunity - resign and leave immediately.

does God give the Church or elders' a role to do good, and bad, or just good?

does God allow the Church and elders to conduct a role towards salvation of a person........because its a positive and good thing?

does God allow the Church and elders to bring the final judgement (now, "OR" at the last day)?

does God allow the Church and elders to bring law, order and/or discipline on members?

does God allow the Church and the elders to bring the "FINAL" law, order or discipline on a member"BEFORE" the judgement day?
or
"AT" the judgement day?

1 Corinthians chapter 5, verse 5

5 hand this man over to Satan for the destruction of the flesh,[a][b] so that his spirit may be saved on the day of the Lord.

this is "VERY" clear that the Church and its elders hand the member thats fallen away to a level of discipline, all the time until the Lord returns (being the day of the Lord, as its stated in verse 5)

the excomunnication is the highest level the Church can conduct, leaving it in the hands of the Lord for He to decide on that day.

this does not give "ANY" indication that the Church or elders can remove the members name from Gods book of Life, let alone pray for this judgement

....that the spirit be saved on the day......meaning that fallen away member can, "IF" God decides, meaning "GOD" will decide on the last day.

if God is going to decide, this means, that God is "NOT" giving the Church and elders to decide.

the excommunication as the highest level of discipline the Church and the elders can do, means the fallen away member cannot be reinstated as a free member

that doesnt mean, if the fallen away member cannot be reinstated as a free member, lets make sure he/she doesnt get to heaven, and pray that their name be removed from the book of life....this is baloney misinterpretation of some unbiblical teaching that cannot be found anywhere in the bible.....

if so, please quote bible, chapter and verse.

............. LOL!!!! Thats exactly what they do!!!! They purposely are dis-membering the church, (i.e. cutting the body up) and then they whine in their glorious tirade of a preaching that the world is ending and that theres no more "faithful people, they will never see themselves in the mirror, how they destroy peoples lives and social connections, here in the USA the things they practice are borderline discrimination and probably not covered by freedom of religion they're leaving themselves open to BIG lawsuits! I would encourage all ACCN members to change their system before everyone walks away, just do away with all the bad practices/old traditions its not that hard, it just takes a little motivation, isn' that the purpose of a church, to save lives, and come as you are?

Other than the very few extreme still-living-in-religious-darkness fringe Euro-Naz churches I think that practice is extinct and thankfully was never widely practiced at least not in the last ~25-30 years. Christian leaders that actually read and follow God's word would never have done that then or now - even the present day weak ones and the light weights.

Praying to instruct God to place the convert's name in the Book Of Life when they lay hands on them may still be more prevalent which is subject to debate on its merits, or lack thereof. Might sound noble but is it right or is it possessing of some pride in telling God what to do in a matter that weighty? This is not like asking God's help with temptation or to be physically healed.

In regards to who was this Euro-trained elder in California? I will stay silent on his identity - he is dead and gone. If his name is known so might those of his victims, but he was not alone in this practice even in California , but there are scores of members in California that know who he is and also his colleagues who did the same, not to mention the member sheep flock who stood by and thought this ok to do. Ditto for Europe.

I can only believe that Jesus is interceding to his Father asking Him to forgive them for they know not what they do.

But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother,who is fornicator,or covetious,or an idolater,or a reviler,or a drunkard,or an extortioner--not even to eat with such a person.

cannot be a free member is one thing, and removing from the book of Life is another thing.
removed from membership by means that they cannot be reinstated again, doesnt give ANYONE the right to remove a name from Gods book of Life.
that part is God to do.
not to keep company, as fellowship again with fallen members, does not give ANYONE the right to remove their name from Gods book of Life.

We all agree that asking God to remove someone's name from The Book of Life is heinous. But let's not miss the bigger point that some corners of this denomination were in such religious darkness as to actually do that and those seeds of darkness still exist today in twisting the scriptures to find sins unto death where they don't exist and making people believe that they are destined for hell with zero hope of changing that. or are they perpetrating lies hoping to keep members in line so that they can control them more effectively. What bible are they reading if at all. I seriously doubt that most of the leadership in North America were even aware of that happening but I know it was widespread in the churches of Serbia and I'm not just talking the Doroslovatz cult.

Discipline is a form of Correction not punishment. It is meant to and it is supposed to rehabilitate and help restore not bring down or destroy. Other than the one and only verified by scripture sin unto death, there should never be a permanent separation from the membership or Fellowship of anyone. Accn sadly still has a long way to go to recognize and Implement this. It might take another generation a better leadership to implement this but hopefully. Come sooner than later too many lives have been affected badly. it seems sometimes that this denomination still to some extent lives in a culture of conviction and Disposal. many leaders it seems are content to live with and accept this Injustice just to keep the denomination from splitting. Sad.

bad examples of elders who in the past MISTREATED members that have fallen into "sins unto death" cannot be a reason to change the principle and fundamental teaching of holy living.

what NEEDS to change, is the concept the elders commit the work for a member that has fallen into a sin unto death.

the cause of a bad or multiple bad examples of elders' actions towards members that have fallen into a sin unto death is what needs to be dealt with, not changing the order of holy living NOR the teaching of 'sins unto death'.

we need to view the original structure of Biblical teaching on "sins unto death".
these are found in the old testament, and repeated in a spiritual sense in the new testament.

this will help us view the new testament church teaching we are in.

people need to study into this matter more, not be influenced into a NON-BIBLICAL TEACHING by elder doug savin nor any other elder that is teaching falsehood.

That's right keep living under the law on you and you will be be judged according to the Old Testament law. You have no idea what Jesus brought and what Grace is sadly.

the comment was not being diverted to the old testament.
it was referred to the origin meaning FROM the old testament.
and
there is a spiritual new testament teaching FROM the old testament.

love and grace is for the sinners coming to Jesus, and for those in Jesus.
but
the sin unto death is referred to members that are in Jesus, not for those coming to Jesus.

you are misinterpreting the comments and not understanding the reasoning on 'sin unto death' that is being commented here.

the old testament 'sins unto death' teaching is referred to particular sins where the children of israel were stoned to death for.
they were not stoned to death for any sin.
nor
were the gentiles stoned to death.

its talking about the people that are in christ and knowing the law and committing grave sins, being in christ

and

the new testament teaching is referred to a spiritual meaning, not literal getting stones on the ground and throwing them on members of christ that have committed particular sins,
but
a spiritual concept where 'do not pray for them', as in not being able to be reinstated as free members back into the the communion of christs church, as quoted in:

1 Jn.5:16
If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.

I'm not sure if it's the same person from Australia that keeps responding.

You started off saying this: was there only one example and for one type of sin in the old testament for which people were stoned to death?
if not,
then there isnt only one sin unto death.

... which is so completely out of context and completely irrelevant with the mention by Jesus of sin unto death in the New Testament. What a wrong and dangerous argument to say that because there were many sins in the Old Testament for which people were put to death then there must be many sins unto death in the New Testament. what logic did you use to arrive at this nonsensev This is where you don't understand Christ's fulfilling or putting to rest most of the Old Law.

and then in the subsequent comments you tried to backpedal and change the direction of your argument.

anyway that's all I'm going to say on this I'll let you have the last word hoping I may have moved the needle for you.

1). All sins that a person has committed prior their baptism is forgiven.
Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins: Acts 13:38
to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins Acts 26:18 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins Eph 1:7
Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins Col. 1:13,14
putting off the body of the sins of the flesh ... ... Buried with him in baptism, ... ... through the faith ... ...  hath he quickened together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; ... ... and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross Col. 2:11,12,13

2). A true Christian is a person who has been born of God, who has forsaken this world and forsaken sin, and has been baptised. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved Mark 16:16

3). A true Christian does not sin.
"whosoever is born of God sinneth not" 1 John 5:18 Whosoever abideth in him sinneth not 1 John 3:6
Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin 1 John 3:9
We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not 1 John 5:18

4). There is no point of baptism if you are going to continue to sin.

Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound? God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein? Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in NEWNESS of life. Roman 6:1,2,3

5).
BUT, if a person sins after being baptised, they can still be forgiven (as long as they have not committed one of the sins unto death)
by: praying and asking for forgiveness AND rectifying the sin.
(and, as long as they do not continue committing that sin/s)

If any man see his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death.
1 John 5:16

6).
NEVERTHELESS there "are" sins (which if committed after baptism) cannot be forgiven.

There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it.
1 John 5:16
We are instructed not to pray for the forgiveness of such sins. Why? Because they cannot be forgiven.

7). And the sins unto death are:

the Holy Scriptures says:
he that sat upon the throne said, ... ... unto me, Write: for these words are true ... ... Rev. 21:5
... ... the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death. Revelation 21:8

Mosaic Law allowed bill of divorcement "because of the hardness of your heart". The bill however was to protect the victim and bind the perpetrator. The guilty party was bound not to remarry whereas the victim was free to remarry. The biggest violators of the law were the Pharisees that divorced over the slightest issue rather than reconcile their marriages.

Jesus was really indicting the Pharisees here by stating that anyone that marries one of them will commit adultery. God's preference is always to reconcile even in the case of adultery (See Hosea)...otherwise Israel wouldn't stand a chance of forgiveness for committing spiritual adultery against God by worshiping other God's.

Paul adds to the list of victims in 1 Cor. 7. He says "The Lord didn't say (Cover this issue) this but I do". They had issues of abandonment where one person in the marriage would convert to Christianity and another wouldn't. Naturally there would be arguments are disagreements and in some cases an unbelieving spouse would abandon the marriage. In this case the believing spouse would "no longer be bound" and this clearly refers to the bondage of marriage. "We have been called to peace".

It is important I think, to read the whole of scripture over specific matters and not isolate certain texts to fit a persons individual agenda. I think I speak on behalf of all believers here when I say our goal is the seek the soundest, most balanced accurate view of scripture rather than isolate, distort and use God's word as a weapon to attack.

No, It's the bondage of the sin of divorce (separation)? that their free from. The context in this scripture is "if one departs", not remarriage. ?

nor

- remarriage is not adultery, if your spouse is still alive in the body.....

putting your spouse away for adultery is clearly biblically quoted above many times, "BUT"....does not state remarriage is allowed!!

and

marrying another is adultery, and marrying the divorced is adultery too.

I know a devil worshipper ( 18 yr old ) who married with a goats head as a symbol on the alter and blood in their cup instead of wine...

God never joined them... he later converted to Christianity - he confessed that this event was evil and wrong and repented of it... God removed his sin NEVER to be mentioned again ... spouse is nowhere to be heard of...gone!!

This previous life should never be mentioned as it is buried in baptism... so this man is not under bondage and nor does any of his previous life of which HE CONFESSED AS ERROR play a part in his new birth with Christ

If you are carnal you are the one going around in circles and cannot see that there is some sin which should not be repeated of... are you blind and cannot see this... let us see if you come back in circles

you are missing the subject.

the whole topic was 'marriage and remarriage' with born again christians in question....not prior to conversion to Christ.

Well it should be obvious that born again believers shouldn't divorce and remarry. The sermon on the mount was addressed to his disciples.

Matthew 5:32

But I say unto you, That whosoever shall put away his wife, saving for the cause of fornication, causeth her to commit adultery: and whosoever shall marry her that is divorced committeth adultery.

So now what happens then when one wants to become a disciple?..a sinner repents... 

The answer is that one has to look at these teachings and apply them to their lives. They need to repent of covetousness, ? judging, they need to forgive....they need to repent of fornication, as well as adultry. (Adultery can be a sin that is done once and repented of.)  But Jesus says it's also a lifestyle sin, just as homosexuality is a lifestyle sin. One repents of this sin when they separte from their lifestyle.---"whosever marries her that is divoced commits"---a (lifestyle)  sin that needs to be repented of.

STAY AWAY FROM THIS MAN! His mouth is full of Biblical verses but his heart is filled with hatred, jealousy, treachery and lust for power. This FALSE CHRISTIAN is the root of almost all evil in ACCN in Australia and he will even take you to court, if he can't get his way.
Janko is pretty much like Paul, dishonest and unloving, just less intelligent. Janko is now building his humongous "warehouse" in Tarneit, destined to remain void of both faith and members. This UNREPENTED SINNER is still dreaming about becoming an elder!
Hard-hearted and egoistic, this long-time "elder" has caused immense grief, division and misery amongst the Nazarenes in Australia. Some even call him a sadist... not that Andrew really cares about anyone's opinion, though. Currently residing in a nursing home in Perth.
Earned his nickname by constantly repeating "Ljubazni" (Dear Ones) while preaching. This recently appointed "elder assistant" is ambitious, but at the same time not clever enough to realize he will always be just Paul's and Janko's messenger boy.
Philip is Paul Pentsa's son-in-law and definitely his best student. Proud, stubborn, arrogant - a classic bigot. Due to his off-putting personality and some weird beliefs, he's not on very good terms with Janko Tomek and other Slovaks in Tarneit.
Here is your future Elder, whether you like the idea or not. Nicky is "a very nice guy". No gift for preaching or leadership skills, but being Paul Pentsa's son, he's actually got everything he needs. Sooner or later his Dad will find the way to install him as his successor.
Janko Tomek's loyal admirer and bodyguard - sleazy, hypocritical, dishonest and ignorant. His interpretation of the Scriptures can make you laugh as well as his awkward sermons in broken English.
