Traditions of men?

Sometimes reality is so strange that there's not much you can say.

Some members of the congregation may believe that, said Constance Guice-Mills, a member of the church. “But his focus on personal salvation, on the individual, was diametrically opposed to the tradition of Riverside. Here, we believe you achieve salvation by doing social justice. Out in the world. And we have people from all backgrounds. Buddhists.”

So in summary - a movement that started as a revolt against traditions on top of Scripture has now ejected a pastor for following Scripture and not the traditions of the church.

Incidentally why is it a church and not say a Rotary Club at that point. Anywho.
