- Especially question #7.
Membership/more members is important in many churches.
- It means..'more revenue, status, recognition, etc..'
* I did 'membership check'(annual evaluation)..at one of the churches.
I was involved in several churches.. from 1970's.
I remember.. a young preacher.
- He was overweight..
He went through 'weight-loss surgery.'
- It worked..
But his 'problems/main issues' in the church.. continued/did not change!
- People still did not like his preaching, etc..
Welcome to CC.
Nowadays..many people claim that they are prophets.
- Having a gift of prophecy is not same..as being a prophet.
More 'spiritual discernment/discerning spirits' are needed..
- Concerning 'prophecies & prophets'
It seems...not much interest about 'coffee'.. on other Christian Forums.
They do not have threads like this..
Maybe..Ruby, Gandy & PR can help those Forums.
- On 'coffee drinking..'
* I am on several Christian Forums.
"When I was a new believer.. Christian radio was very helpful."
- I agree.
It helped me..during the early days of spiritual journey.
As you mentioned, many teaching programs are 'available on the internet..24/7' nowadays.
- Reminds..the book.
