It has come to the attention of the Council of Officers that a particular individual who is no longer a Reformation Party member is issuing attacks against the Reformation Party that it is the party of kinism because this former member asserts a specific current member of the Reformation Party is a kinist. The particular current member in question is a white American married to an Asian wife. In this current member's own words he says: "I am happily and unrepentantly married to an Asian wife, and I believe it is morally permissible for anyone else likewise to marry outside his race and ethnicity, so long as it is in the Lord. I am extremely opposed to the absolute separation of the races and ethnicities, and I believe each church congregation has a moral duty to welcome people of all races and ethnicities into its membership, just as the Reformation Party welcomes people of all races and ethnicities into its membership. It should be self-evident I am against the absolute separation of races and ethnicities because the human closest to me in this world is a member of another race and ethnicity." If there are any doubts or questions of Reformation Party members or the public as to this matter, we would encourage you to contact the Council of Officers as a whole or individually.

Council officers of the Reformation Party are wanting to provide members with some possible ways such members can get involved in and promote the goals of the Reformation Party. Here are some that have been submitted thus far:
1. Become coordinator in your local area of a chapter of Campaign for Community Biblical Governance
2. If your area has a chapter of Campaign for Community Biblical Governance, then help it in such ways as becoming editor of its periodic newsletter, managing its Facebook page or other website, writing letters to area churches and civil magistrates, inviting people in your area to join the chapter, etc.
3. work towards organizing a local/regional Reformation Party chapter with its own local Council of Officers
4. for those qualified, run for civil magistrate in your area with the Reformation Party agenda.
5. If you are a writer, consider writing articles in favor of biblical principles of civil government. This could include letters to the editor dealing with some specific issue that is currently in the news, starting a blog, writing a book, writing a journal article, etc.
6. Sponsor, help to arrange, or engage in public debates over biblical civil issues—either in general or on specific topics.
7. Bring up these issues in conversations with others informally whenever there is a reasonable opportunity. Don't be afraid to speak your opinion when political issues come up, even if it is very uncomfortable.
8. Encourage people in your church, both lay people and leaders, to consider these issues. Help to bring these issues into the awareness of people who might not naturally think about them or be aware of them very much.

Become an active part of your community--going to community meetings, serving on committees, etc.--and be willing to put in your input to get people to think about biblical civil issues and to consider non-secular alternative ideas.10. Create a press release about the reformed party and local involvement. A well-written online press release in an excellent way to build publicity.

12. Create pictures with pro-establishment captions which can be shared on Facebook.
13. Go to town meetings and ask questions which challenge the thinking of our leaders.
14. Start a book discussion group at your home or church to expose people to Christ's Kingship.
