A Word About Standards, Codes and Rules
Because we have standards, rules and codes of conduct does not mean we want to have a "legalistic" approach to our organization. We actually despise rules, but rules is what we have to enforce when someone begins to operate outside of the "Spirit of the Law". In a diverse culture with many variations of standards, it is necessary for everyone to know what kind of an organization we are and what kind of standards we have. These are outward standards set to attempt to have Christ-like modesty in the particular time and culture we are in. We desire a "spirit of the law" approach as opposed to a letter of the law approach.
