Are we not human? Have we "arrived"?

If Paul had not, I would wager none of us have. Which means we must be open to the fact that we may be in error in some way.


I know I certainly haven't arrived. Sanctification is an interesting process :p

He’s a troll. Claims Biblical knowledge yet put an S in Revelation. smh.
Slim chance he could have been referring to Paul's[?] experience??... in...

2 Corinthians 12:7 [verse 1 also] -

"and the surpassingness of the revelations [plural]. Therefore, that I should not become conceited, a thorn in my flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan, that he might buffet me, so that I should not become conceited."

lol

:unsure:

Oops, forgive me... lol... I forgot not to talk (er, to not talk, I mean!)

Yeah, if "internet church" was all I could have, I wouldn't like it as well... :D (I would do it if that literally was ALL that was available... like, if all churches were shut down, or whatever)

Hebrews 10:25 KJV
[25] Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is ; but exhorting one another : and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.
Is this not in reference to a local, visible gathering of the saints?

Assemble as per Cambridge is

to come together in a single place or bring parts together in a singlegroup:

Part of the assembling is to partake the Lords Supper, including water baptism over converts or candidates. With web-based church isl this possible?

What do you think?

Thanks again.

We all in this group believe that God uses the web to reach the lost and hurting and unreachable. But those he has called he has called for a purpose. Not to just sit but to move with action. Amen @ whole group
You are saying as if the lost and hurting and unreachable don't use the internet. But that's actually most likely where they will go nowadays. You seem judgmental of other believer' spiritual lives for no cause other than they are Ok with using web based church. I even explained on thread I couldn't drive I moved to another continent and can't go to church right now. Sorry for hitting a zzZzZz but it's hard to resist when people use the Scriptures to push private views on something.

He's not likely to respond; his privileges have been suspended, according to a moderator's post in another thread.

i say its positive if done right. as you said elderly and shutins and disabled people its good for them. its also good for people in countries like saudi arabia or some areas in europe where there are no biblical churches.

just dont use it as excuse not to attend if you can go to a real human biblical church i say
Correct...there are some "church rebels" who won't attend services because they don't get along well with others, or they hold a weird theology that they expect everyone else to accept..or they are still waiting for the "true church" that conforms to their understanding of the Bible in every respect...not a valid excuse.

I've met many people who didn't attend a church regularly, but in every other respect (that I could assess) were solid Christians. The common thread among them was that they had received abusive treatment from church leaders. A few were oversensitive and needed to deal with their own issues, but many had undergone nasty experiences.
