    We must remember that St.paul was NOT divine and that his commandment to shave off a womans hair who prays without her head being covered is plainly ridiculous. Indeed it behoves Christians to return to Christ's commandments of non-judgemental unconditional love if Christianity has any chance of surviving into the future--and foresake their sin-seeing habits!

    Let everything be done decently and in order. i think that we are getting back to bare bones times ahead, gathering in homes or small groups is the way the church began. We can believe for miracles and see the Holy Spirit move wherever three or more agree...let's stay strong.

Old Days: Brush Arbour Meetings: was held in Dirt Floor Shacks: God always Showed-up: Miracles: Healings: Holy Spirit Baptism: Demons Cast Out: etc: God the Holy Spirit has Left these MEGA BUILDINGS: The Falling Away is now RAMPANT APOSTASY!

  • Cate mansfield
    Yes I would have the same understanding as Ray Smith in that eat drink and be merry at home if you so wish. Not in the house of our Lord. In his house its done as a rememberance to God and Jesus Christ in whom we respect.
