Doctrine (81417-LC-¶217)

Add a paragraph 217.8.  
  
      8. To keep God’s holy will and commandments in a manner consistent with the Social Principles and the General Rules of the United Methodist Church.

Rationale

The purpose of ¶217 is to lift up the importance of the membership vows, and to help interpret those vows.  However, the current paragraph does not include a reference to an important part of the vows, “to keep God’s holy will and commandments.”  This addition serves to make that inclusion.
