This is not about being an adult or even mature. This is about Jesus Christ. God even said forsake not a child. So what if I was one. Make sure y’all hearts are in the right place with God.

Consider that you may be derailing your own thread.

Some posters are blunt and some shunt.

With the nature of a forum it is frequently slower than IM

I agree with what the
two other posters said about shut-ins, elderly, isolation, or possibly even willingness (depending on one's season of life) it isn't a substitute.

More than that would be hard to say without specificity so don't take it too personally without a bit of context on where something is coming from or some examples.

It is certainly worthy of discussion though :)


Edit: My spacing keeps messing up somehow, first letter gets highlighted and it starts deleting what I type after that alas.

Is this new generation church?
what do you mean 'new generation church' ?

do you mean, this new thing, web-based congregations, is that really a church?
or do you mean, are these churches '
new generation' ? ((then what do you mean, 'new generation'??))

if you're asking if someone has to be physically present with other physically present people in order to really call it a church, then i'm not sure that's true. the NT talks about local assemblies and calls them 'churches' but it also talks about the entirety of all believers together and calls that 'the church' -- even though as a whole, we're not all physically present with each other.

Because I’ve been seeing increasingly churches having church thru media and seats empty in churches

That’s why I brought up the thread. Don’t understand why it was so hard for some to understand. It was a simple question. Is this the new generation church ? Lol

Is this the new way of having church ?better ? 😀
Sounds real good and easy... You don't really have to put forth any effort, just log on...so probably not the better way... just saying!

It is an option for the elderly and disabled, but it would be better if local churches went to those peoples homes and prayed and had church with them.

My thoughts, anyways.
