Spiritually speaking, how will you be spending your sunday?

Question by : Spiritually speaking, how will you be spending your sunday?
Instead of sitting in a church pew wishing I was at home in bed I will actually be at home and in bed until about 12. Then I will be going to pick up the 1 year old Golden Retriever puppy that I adopted. After that I will probably take the new pup for a hike and a swim in the lake.

THE HERESY OF THE UNITED PENTECOSTAL CHURCH – A MAN-MADE “SPEAKING IN TONGUES & BAPTISM” CULT

Many Oneness Pentecostals believe that Christians must receive the gift of tongues, or glossolalia, in order to be saved. It should be pointed out that such Oneness Pentecostals do not believe that the gift of tongues in itself will save individuals; however, any individual who has received the Holy Spirit, and thus will be saved, will also receive and exhibit the gift of tongues. Larry Wessels, director of Christian Answers of Austin, Texas/ Christian Debater (YouTube channel CANSWERSTV; see our playlist “Dealing with Anti Trinitarians (UPC)” at www.youtube.com websites: www.BIBLEQUERY.ORG, http & www.MUSLIMHOPE.COM) presents another broadcast of his radio program “Christian Answers Live!” usually hosted by Lee Meckley but in this case Bob L. Ross. The special guests for this broadcast are Bob L. Ross, director of Pilgrim Publications (website www.PilgrimPublications.com – one of the world’s leading publishers of the works of Charles Haddon Spurgeon) & author of the book, “The Trinity & the Eternal Sonship of Christ” & Mark McNeil, former valedictorian of the Texas Bible College which is operated by the United Pentecostal Church & who is the author of the pamphlets, “An Evaluation of the Oneness Pentecostal Movement” & “Is Speaking with Tongues the Initial Evidence of the Spirit Baptism?” The founding date of the Oneness Pentecostal movement can be traced to a specific event a revival meeting in Los Angeles on April 15, 1913.

Using Television For Speaking About Religion

Using Television For Speaking About Religion

There are some people who are unable to attend church and find their television is the only outlet they have to hear God’s word. They tune to the community television station on their cable network to attend a weekly worship service and listen to the message about the love of God and the plans that he has for everybody’s life.

The television networks have created a Gospel channel that features clergy from many Faiths around the world and people have the opportunity to tune in at a regularly scheduled time to hear people voice their observations about the life of Christ and even the history of his death. When these clergy are speaking about God they have an authoritative tone to their voice that indicates the power of the Living Word.

There are other people who watch the church television program that are quite able to dress for church, are also lucky enough to own a car that could take them to church on Sunday if they had the mind to go. These people are quite content to use their televisions to see religious services because they like the anonymity that television viewing offers. While someone is speaking about God, these people feel very comfortable about cooking a meal at the same time.

These people quit going to church because something that was said struck a nerve. They still enjoy hearing the philosophical views of many evangelists but do not want to be pressured to contribute to the collection plate of a church that they used to visit only one or two times. They feel that the church is actually asking them to pay a price for hearing someone speak about God, and never seem to get the message about the price that Christ paid on the cross at Calvary.

Using television for speaking about religion is a useful tool that many clergy prefer because it gives them the opportunity to reach more people at one time. People come to the church services that are broadcasted on the television and people at home can see the looks of contentment on their faces throughout the program.

These people are not hiding their faith and ask for no anonymity as they sit in their pew. They want their visit to church that day to count for something so they sit patiently and listen to every word that is spoken. The community church programs make sure that the deaf can hear every word too because they always ensure that someone is standing in the background doing sign language so that the deaf will know what the clergy is speaking about.
