Crawley’s original Roman Catholic church has been rebuilt a couple of times. In its present form, it is an impressive postwar building by the highly original architect (and influential architectural writer) Harry Stuart Goodhart-Rendel. Back in the early Victorian era, the Blount family of the Crabbet Park estate in Worth were closely associated with this church. This view is taken from the rear, from a twitten that leads from Station Way to Haslett Avenue West. The saddleback tower and polychromatic brickwork are clearly visible. Taken on 20th October 2011.

See my Wikipedia article "List of places of worship in Crawley" for more information and other pics.

NOMADS

 

There is a pattern of transient behaviour apparent in Pentecostal churches in this country, the which has to be called into question surely. Supposed Pastors migrating between churches from time to time, town to town, city to city, State to State. Men who supposedly state “God has called them to a certain town,” city, etc., men who Pastor churches, then for whatever reasons, pull up their roots and move on to somewhere else.

Men who go about manipulating the love and trust of the sheep, (2 Pet. 2/3), who glean loyalty and devotion from folk, men who harvest the unqualified support AND TRUST of the people, men who oversee the birth of new souls into the Kingdom,……..then make a decision to abdicate, walk away, migrate,………. flee,…….. to somewhere else.

 

It is incredulous to me how a man who has fathered children, nurtured, fed, tendered, clothed, and looked after for 1, 2, 3, or maybe even 7 years, can,… at a given whim, pull up roots, move on, abandon, forsake,…desert,… the ones he has given birth to. How much more incredulous is it to witness the same desertion of successive flocks by men who present themselves as being “shepherds” of the flock?????? Gal. 4/19.

I have seen this first hand,….been in a congregation where it has happened”: As a matter of fact, I came to realize that this “walkabout”, Nomadic, Gypsy behaviour happens so frequently in the church, that the sheep have come to accept it as “the norm” and have deadened their senses to such because of the frequency with which it occurs.

 

I was a part of the congregation of “Southside Christian Renewal Centre” Golda Avenue Salisbury in Brisbane when Chris Peterson stood up one Sunday morning behind the pulpit and announced his resignation from that church,……….leaving half the congregation behind in tears; a congregation which he fathered in the spirit!!!

 

SINCE WHEN IS IT ACCEPTABLE BEHAVIOUR FOR A FATHER OF CHILDREN (1 COR. 4/15-16, GAL. 4/19) TO JUST GET UP AND WALK OUT, LEAVE, ABANDON, FORSAKE, DESERT THEM JUST BECAUSE THE GOING GETS A BIT TOUGH, HE FEELS LIKE HE IS GOING NOWHERE, STAGNATING, TOO MANY PROBLEMS, PRAYERS DON`T SEEM TO BE GETTING ANSWERS, FEELS HE IS GETTING STALE, HE IS STARTING TO GET FED UP, CHURCH IS NOT GROWING, NUMBERS ARE DROPPING OFF, CHURCH IS NO LONGER EXCITING ANYMORE, HE WANTS A PROMOTION, WANTS A CHANGE OF SCENERY,…and this is my favourite,…..

HE`S BURNT OUT????? (no such thing by the way, if you are feeling tired and,….burnt out,.. then that is because you have been warring, building in the flesh and not the Spirit: (Math. 11/28-30).

 

AND OF COURSE,…..WE HAVE TO MENTION THIS ONE,……. “THERE IS NOT ENOUGH MONEY IN THE OFFERINGS TO SUPPORT THE PASTOR AND HIS FAMILY”:………HUH,…..SPOKEN LIKE A TRUE HIRELING:

OF COURSE, I HOPE YOU ALL REALISE THAT IT GOES WITHOUT SAYING, THAT THE ABOVE MIGRATORY BEHAVIOUR OF THESE “FOULS` OF THE AIR,” LEAVES BEHIND FLOCKS IN TATTERS FEELING ABANDONED, BETRAYED, BRUISED, WOUNDED, DAMAGED WITH SMASHED TRUST,……..SCATTERED,………NO LONGER IN CHURCH;

I`VE SEEN IT HAPPEN GENTS,……..TAKE HEED,………THE DAMAGE DONE BY THIS TRANSIENT BEHAVIOUR IS HORENDOUS: I HAVE SEEN CHURCHES GO FROM 50, 80, 300 IN ATTENDANCE, DIMINISHED DOWN TO ABOUT 6 IN NUMBER BECAUSE OF IT, THE REST NO LONGER IN CHURCH, THEIR TRUST SMASHED, DISALLUSIONED, BEWILDERED, WOUNDED, CONFUSED,………….SCATTERED:……………………………….

IF YOU ARE NOT A SHEPHERD OF THE FLOCK,……………………………..

IF YOU ARE CALLED TO BE A PASTOR,…BUT NOT YET UNCTIONED,…

WHAT ARE YOU DOING THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE?????????????????

(At this point, I shall make mention, that not all congregations accept on fire leadership and expel them, not wanting to get too close, sell out for Christ.)

 

THUS SAITH THE LORD GOD:

“BUT HE THAT IS AN HIRELING, AND NOT THE SHEPHERD, WHOSE OWN THE SHEEP ARE NOT, SEETH THE WOLF COMING, AND LEAVETH THE SHEEP, AND FLEETH: AND THE WOLF CATCHETH THEM, AND SCATTERETH THE SHEEP. THE HIRELING FLEETH, BECAUSE HE IS AND HIRELING, AND CARETH NOT FOR THE SHEEP.” JOHN 10/12-13.

“THESE ARE WELLS WITHOUT WATER, CLOUDS THAT ARE CARRIED WITH A TEMPEST: TO WHOM THE MIST OF DARKNESS IS RESERVED FOR EVER.” 2 PET. 2/17.

“WOE UNTO THEM! FOR THEY HAVE GONE IN THE WAY OF CAIN, AND RAN GREEDILY AFTER THE ERROR OF BALAAM FOR REWARD, AND PERISHED IN THE GAINSAYING OF CORE. THESE ARE SPOTS IN YOUR FEASTS OF CHARITY, WHEN THEY FEAST WITH YOU, FEEDING THEMSELVES WITHOUT FEAR: CLOUDS THEY ARE WITHOUT WATER, CARRIED ABOUT OF WINDS; (EPH. 4/14) TREES WHOSE FRUIT WITHERETH, WITHOUT FRUIT TWICE DEAD, PLUCKED UP BY THE ROOTS; RAGING WAVES OF THE SEA, FOAMING OUT THEIR OWN SHAME; WANDERING STARS, TO WHOM IS RESERVED THE BLACKNESS OF DARKNESS FOR EVER.” JUDE 11-13.

COVETOUS CHRISTIAN

 

PERGAMOS

 

REV. 2/12-17

 

Simple to spot, one who loves and chases money, wants to be rich, (1 Tim. 6/9-10), is covetous, (Luke 12/15, Math. 6/24, luke 16/13), churches that conduct business, (2 Tim. 4-5), merchandise in the name of The Lord, (John 2/15-17, Math. 21/12-13, Mk. 11/15-17), and concoct doctrines to justify their actions, (Math. 15/9, Mk. 7/7, Col. 2/22, Rev. 2/15, 2/6), would be believers, who, would rather “fill their bellies”, (Phil. 3/19, Ro. 16/18), (do have a deliberate direction to follow Christ and not “deny His name”), pouting the “blab and grab it” spiel, “name it and claim it”, the positive confession it`s OK, God wants you to be rich routine, POUTING THE EXCREMENT OF THE PROSPERITY DOCTRINE: EVERYTHING ABOUT THESE CHURCHES OOZES WITH THE IMAGE THAT THE WORLD HAS OF PROSPERITY AND SUCCESS: AGAIN, A HUGE CONGREGATION IS EVIDENT, WHERE HEB. 6/4-5 APPLIES: (AGAIN, THE NON-DENOMINATIONAL FLAG FLUTTERS), TAKES OFFENCE WHEN THE TRUTH IS REVEALED TO THEM, AND WILL VEHEMENTLY DEFEND THEIR HERESY: ALSO HEAVILY POPULATED WITH HERETICS, WHO “STOP THEIR EARS TO THE TRUTH” ALWAYS CHASING MONEY:

 

NO WONDER JESUS WILL FIGHT AGAINST THEM WITH THE SWORD (THE WORD) OF HIS MOUTH:

 

WHAT SAY YOU PASTOR SAUCE? IS THIS YOU AND YOUR CHURCH?

AGAIN, IF REPENTANCE IS NOT FORTHCOMING, WILL BECOME PART OF THE “SYNAGOGUE OF
