That which is gone from thy lips thou shalt keep and perform;… (Deut. 23:22a)

In the Church of God in Christ, the consecration of a new bishop is a very solemn occasion.  It is at this time, before GOD, the members of the Church, the General Board, and the Presiding Bishop, the bishop designee gives his word to “…perform all the duties assigned to you as a Bishop of the Church Of God In Christ, according to the order and direction of the General Assembly?”

Pictured below is an excerpt from the September 23, 2008 Judiciary Board hearing where Vice Chief Justice Jackson stated; “…we have The Bible, which is another black book, which is a superior black book to our Constitution,…”

When thou shalt vow a vow unto the LORD thy God, thou shalt not slack to pay it: for the LORD thy God will surely require it of thee; and it would be sin in thee. But if thou shalt forbear to vow, it shall be no sin in thee. That which is gone out of thy lips thou shalt keep and perform; even a freewill offering, according as thou hast vowed unto the LORD thy God, which thou hast promised with thy mouth. (Deuteronomy 23:21–23, AV)

General Counsel Enoch Perry III, has stated, the language was “…dicta.  It’s just ceremonial language because it’s in the charge of consecration.  It does not have the full force of the law to say you must do this, you must do that.”1

When did the WORD of GOD become “just ceremonial” in the Church of God in Christ?  We have vows in a marriage ceremony, is that just dicta also?  Is the keeping of that vow also optional?  Are all vows optional in the Church of God in Christ?  God Forbid!

An attorney of both COGIC, Inc and Bishop Gilkey, Attorney & Pastor Charles E. Watson II stated; “pg. 108, 9/28/2008 Judiciary Board.

In my opinion he says the Constitution sits above the Bible on a day-to-day basis.  Whose report do you believe?  Read the complete Consecrated Charge.
