This is a point I have thought about. I feel that Sunday is the Christians fullfilling of Hebrews 10:25, "Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves." Yes there will be the occasional attendance of an unsaved person, but for the most part this is the time for BELIEVERS to come together, to fellowship, worship together, be fed and feed.
We visited a church that was putting the principles of this book to use, and every week, Sunday morning Sunday night and Wed, we were given milk, no meat. 40 minutes of music, a short milky:) 20 minute feel good sermon, we were out of there every week on time. According to Scripture Paul preached thru the night at times. Is the HS now on a time frame>
Yes I know it is a believers responsiblility to study on their own, and I do, but I feel pastors are to consider their WHOLE flock, and some of the flock need more then milk. We were starving in that church and left.
AT The church we now attend, the preacher, with the guidance of the HS, picks out a book of the bible and preaches thru it. Funny how it always turns out to be what the church needs.
Thank you for pointing that out Becky, i've been screaming it at the top of my lungs for years to a congregation and leadership that wants to play games about "Felt needs" (= fiction), when their real needs are to be equipped to carry out the mandates of the great commission.
Thats a good point. One thing I've noticed about these type of churches is that they rarely open or close a "worship" service with a prayer. I geuss they figure the singing and music takes place of prayer.
