CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) – A judge set bond at $1 million on a single weapons charge against the suspect in a shooting at a downtown Charleston church, but bond was automatically denied on nine murder charges.

COLUMBIA, SC (WMBF) – There are new details emerging into what happened in the months leading up to the moment police say Dylann Roof opened fire inside a Charleston church, killing nine people. The 21-one-year-old is from the Midlands area, but Friday morning he was behind bars more than 100 miles away, facing charges in […]

PHOENIX (CBS5) – Bond was set at $1 million for a 54-year-old ex-convict arrested in the shooting death of a 28-year-old Phoenix priest. Phoenix police confirmed Gary Moran, a homeless man with an extensive criminal record, was arrested Sunday night and jailed on suspicion of shooting the Rev. Kenneth Walker multiple times at Mother of […]

I wish someone would have told me that dealing with dying parishioners will cause me to have to work through issues of my own mortality on a regular basis.

Most people in the world have no experience of lasting joy in their lives. We’re on a mission to change that. All of our resources exist to guide you toward everlasting joy in Jesus Christ.

Well, it is certainly right that we should not be constantly going back to the basics of our faith as if to dig up the roots to see if they’re still alive. That’s a good way to kill a plant. You don’t constantly disassemble the foundation of your house to see if it’s firm. That is a good way to bring the whole house down on your head. That’s the first thing to say.

The second thing to say is no . There is no ideal mark of doctrinal maturity in the Christian life. The Bible does not speak in terms of an ideal level of doctrinal or moral or spiritual maturity having been reached. It speaks of minimal standards needing to be attained and then a lifelong constant pursuit of growth.

In the previous post , I laid out the potential a church has when it leverages the pastor’s unique position to start new groups as a way to involve church members who are attending worship, but not Sunday School. The previous post also laid out 3 important barriers that prevent church members from participating in Sunday School; 1) Closed social circles; 2) Do not know the leader; 3) Long-term commitment.

The pastor is the ideal person to break through these barriers by offering some type of “Pastor Connection Group”. In this post, I want to share the mechanics of getting a short-term group like this going; and the basic game plan of what should take place.

Promotion
Begin announcing the new “Pastor’s Connection Group” (or whatever you want to call it) about 3 weeks before it actually begins. Announce it in every worship service. Include bulletin inserts that people can fill out and place in the offering plate or turn in to the church office. Since most people do not attend church every week, allowing three weeks to promote the group will reach most people. Also, a letter about the group should be sent to church members that are not enrolled in a Sunday School group or who have been inactive for over 6 months.

A Texas Baptist pastor aiding the Donald Trump campaign in its outreach to Hispanic voters endorsed the Republican presidential candidate during an interview aired in three parts on The Jim Bakker Show in late July.

“Let me go ahead and say it,” Ramiro Peña , founding pastor of Christ the King Baptist Church in Waco, Texas, said on programs that aired July 21-23 on the PTL Television Network. “Can I just say it? I endorse Donald Trump for the presidency of the United States of America.”

Peña, a former nine-year member of the Baylor University board of regents who with Houston Astros owner Drayton McLane organized the Billy Graham-style Gathering on the Brazos attended by 35,000 at the university’s McLane Stadium on Palm Sunday 2015, said while Trump isn’t the ideal candidate for conservative Christian voters, he’s far preferable to Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Who raised Timothy in faith? Why did God chose a married woman judge to rule Israel? Why do some Christian leaders hide the teaching talents of the daughters of Jesus?

What I am about to tell you, will steer up many Catholics and many claimed to be conservative Christians. I dont care. Let the Word of God be my only judge.

The out of context use of this verse of the Bible has made mainstream Christianity into a «kindergarten for men» . But was that Pauls intention? I am not only doubtful, I am sure that Paul promoted women in scriptural leadership. And I will quote scriptures to plead my understanding of Paul.
