Having been in the same conference as Dell for over 26 years, I believe that any notion of a transcendent God is outside of his belief system. Repentance would apply for him to any crime against humanity. If the sin was forbidden in the Bible, then commitiing that sin is not subject to repentance. In fact, if people actually agreed with a Scriptural restriction then that person ought to repent of his agreement.

Question:
In view of the church's "intent to minister to all people" and Mr Dell's conviction that it is "unconscionable for a church to deny ministry to some people and make it available to others", how does this policy (or does it) allow an open door for the ministry of repentence to those whose conscionces are sensitive to the Spirit prompting them to relate to a Being greater than their own humanity?
