I just re-read the Samaritan Guidelines, and it says:
B. Be in agreement with the following member
statement of faith:
I believe in the triune God of the Bible. He
is one God Who is revealed in three
distinct Persons—God, the Father; God,
the Son; and God the Holy Spirit.
I believe Jesus Christ was God in the
flesh—fully God and fully man. He was
born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died
on the cross to pay the penalty for our
sins, was bodily resurrected on the third
day, and now is seated in the heavens at
the right hand of God, the Father.
I believe that all people are born with a sinful
nature and can be saved from eternal
death only by trusting in Christ’s atoning
death and resurrection to save us from
our sins and give us eternal life.
Originally I did not read this as Sola Fidae, but as an absolute minimal requirement. (paraphrasing, I would interpret it as such: You must believe that through Christ all sins are forgiven, but if you believe more, that’s up to you.)All Christian religions, liberal or not, require you to have faith in Christ’s Atoning death. This would be something to pray about and ask your parish pastor for guidance on.
For me, Samaritan was the logical choice because they help to fight a greater evil, the evil of abortion-on-demand. Using my interpretation, it seemed to fit me well, but now, I must consider whether I have perjured myself in the sight of God, by misinterpreting their requirements. This gives me a great sadness, and will require prayer and reflection. I will be going over to Solidarity Health Share once they are finished with their negotiations, but I need a stopgap in the mean time, too, in order to avoid paying a fine that will ultimately be used to finance things that run against our beliefs.
