The Emergent Church is kind of like a home church. It’s very casual and you can dress as you want. For singing they have a praise band. I would guess it would have repetitive mantras similar to the ones you find in Pentecostal churches. There is Rick Warren again as he has his hand in everything these days.
John 15 provides us with the information we need on pruning. Unlike other faith’s or religions without Christ you can do nothing. All those other groups can absolutely do nothing. They are only fooling themselves. Take a personal inventory of what needs to be pruned in your life? When God prunes it does hurt a little. It reminds me of Hebrews 12 and discipline. No chastening seems to be joyful for the moment, but Grievous, but afterward it yields the Peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it. Have you been trained to endure pruning in your life? After pruning away the dead branches in your life, how fruitful will you become? Take root downward and bear fruit upward. Make your yield great for God. By way of an update, I have pruned this website about 40% so far and still working on it. This was the perfect topic to provide you an update. To date I pruned about 250 articles which are no longer here.
Any largely Pentecostal church uses this poison in their ministry. IF YOU PARTNER WITH US AND SEND US $100,ooo DOLLARS, THE LORD WILL BLESS YOU 100%!
I once sent the ministry of Joyce Meyers a letter encouraging her to send me ONE MILLION DOLLARS! In that way she would never need to ask anyone or money anymore. Sure fire way. But, do you know that it’s been 10 years now and I haven’t received a check from her ministry yet? I tried the same thing with Ken Copeland but did get a response from Gloria Copeland. BROTHER, IT ONLY WORKS WHEN YOU SEND US MONEY. The Apostle Paul would admonish all Pentecostals, WHEN I PREACH THE GOSPEL OF JESUS CHRIST, I MAY PRESENT THE GOSPEL WITHOUT CHARGE SO THAT I WOULD ABUSE NOT MY AUTHORITY IN THE GOSPEL- 1st Corinthians 9:15. Did you hear it? The collective thud when I said without charge?
On my family property in Michigan we used to have an orchard of apples, pears, and cherries. Occasionally we had to prune back the branches to get more fruit. I’m sure the tree, if it could talk, would be groaning because pruning can be painful, not so much for the actual tree, but for you and me. Pruning is different then discipline. Spiritual discipline is to correct error while pruning is to bear fruit of a spiritual nature such as the Fruit of the Spirit found in Galatians 5. I should add that without the Fruit of the Spirit the gifts of the Spirit are meaningless. Where in these statistics do you find yourself? More importantly, are you willing for God to prune you? And what areas of your life need pruning the bear more fruit? We shall pick up there in part 2.
I have a new version of Angel’s from the Realms of Glory with a very familiar tune. Here is this new version. A great many Christmas carols have changed their tune and I hope you enjoy this change as well.
What is so surprising about the scriptural Christadelphians is on how they take this doctrine of the Arians and base their whole concept of the trinity on what the Arians did. This concept was not known until nearly 3 centuries after Christ was crucified. Do you know who else was interested in this Theory besides the Jehovah’s Witnesses and Unitarians? The other only true church, the Roman Catholic Church. I wonder when the Christadelphians will merge with the Roman Catholic Church? Now here are two sets of intelligent Christadelphians. They are such ” brilliant” people which I might call Professional I M’s. That is translated intelligent morons.
This is what the Christadelphians believe. What does Scripture have to say to the contrary?
Here is another belief about that cult. How does Scripture deal with that statement? Isaiah 9:6 says, his name will be called wonderful, counselor,THE MIGHTY GOD, the EVERLASTING FATHER, the Prince of Peace. yes, the Christadelphians ARE a cult.
