Question by newlife: Have you asked yourself, were did pulpits, pews, scheduled services, and THE PASORS church come from?
When I read the Bible I see that they gathered in homes, there was no head leader, I do read elders (plural) and giftings in the church, no big me, little you crap.
Answer by meoorr
Very interesting question. You’re right – for about 3 centuries they gathered in homes. Pulpits, pews, ministers, sermons, all came much later and were largely influenced by the Roman Empire.
