On the rise of a new church...

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by REP (a host of the General Discussion forum).

Thom Hartman had a couple members of the church today... two mostly retired people. They talked about how the Holy Spirit is creating a new church, a very different church, closer to the early church... in the streets. And how values are quickly shifting.


Now I am the least religious person you will find. In fact, having seen a few jewish leaders, and christian leaders and catholics, talk about money and wealth as a value... well that turned my stomach a while ago. If I find a place with values of community, real values of community... but it struck me as interesting. I saw members of multiple faiths at the local Occupy, taking care of each other, so perhaps something IS in the air.

This is just an interesting observation, that i have no clue how to add to my essay, to be honest. It was an angle I didn't even consider, secular that I am...

1. I vote for people just respecting other people and treating them well.

Let's forget the church part. That particular idea has had too many bad endings over the centuries.

2. I know but these two are members of two different

 

churches. You will be happy to know that this was the angle they took, as factions lead to trouble, as in serious trouble.

3. If they follow the teachings of Jesus I am all for it.

Because Jesus was definatly a progressive....and most Cristians are not following his teachings and in fact in many cases doing the exact oppisit of what he tought.
And if one looks at the proohsies that are in the bible it predicts bouth the false prophist that are our religous leaders today and that in the end times "the truth will be cast down and will prosper"
So good for them if it is true.
