As far as denominational connections, I haven't had any for years now. I was brought up in a Lutheran Church until I was 18, and then after we moved to Florida in 1971 we got involved in a youth ministry, a Coffee House outreach from the local First Baptist Church of Delray Beach, where my sister and I joined the youth choir, and then became members. During that time, I began attending another local youth evangelistic group that was connected with a Bible College to the south of me in Hollywood, Florida. I enrolled in the Bible College in January 1973 (much to the dismay of the Baptist preacher, and to my sister, as well) and I graduated in 1975. By 1979, I left the local church near me that was associated with the college. I left because of a lack of the real life we have in Christ in the relationships and in the teachings. I didn't fit with their programs ... they considered me too dangerous with my grace message.
In the years to follow I was involved in some small home groups. I am still considered dangerous by many ... I won't try to kid you about that. The last official church I was with basically told me that I was unbalanced because I preached too much of the grace of Christ. * Life in Christ is all about Christ in us ... and us in Christ because of what He did on the cross and through His resurrection. I will claim no institution of man ... religious or otherwise.
