Right now I am fully enjoying my membership at the "Church Of Me" where I am head pastor, the choir, head usher, spiritual leader, bookeeper, youth minister, and congregation all rolled up into one. [Big Grin] [clap2]

If you mean the Lord and his son Jesus Christ Carol there is no invitation needed, because the "Church of Me" doesn't exist without them. I have just simply decided to eliminate all the other shenanigans that goes on inside a lot of these churches, and worship and walk on my own.

We were not made to walk alone, thats why God created a body of believers. And if you have problems fellowshipping with others look to your walk with the Lord and ask Him whats out of whack.

I am not walking alone Dave because first and foremost God is always with me, and then my dad, one of my best friends, and several co-workers are all devout christians that I see and talk to every week for fellowship. So many people have it nailed in their heads that you cannot be a christian or saved unless you go to church, and that might be true for some but not true for others who have a strong inner foundation and know the word of God backwards & forwards. You can go to church everyday for the next 30 years and me never step another foot in one, and we will STILL end up in the same heaven together. Those who don't believe that and dismiss that theory are guilty of playing God by placing judgement on me, and there will be a price to pay for that unfortuneatly.

Did I say that? I didnt say you needed to be at church to be saved. The word says dont forsake the gathering of the saints because we are all filled withthe spirit and have something to give one another. I am not judging you brother just exhorting you that God will command a blessing when brethren fellowship together in unity. If anyone has hurt you dont hold anything against them because in the end it will cause damage to you and that person won't be bothered they will just go about their business. Bless you brother and be encouraged cause God is on the move in this nation and around the world.

You should pray that God would show you why you have a problem being under the authority of a Pastor.

I am under the authority of God only and only need to answer to him, and since I have made this decision I have been steadily getting blessed and blessing others everyday. And it's not what goes on INSIDE the church that counts the most but moreso what you apply to life OUTSIDE those doors, and right now I am living and applying all that I have learned and making life my church.

It is what is going in side the Church that equips you to do what you have to do outside the Church. Again, I see it that you do not want to be under the authority of a Pastor. One of the first things the Apostles did after Pentecost was to go out and plant Churches for the Kingdom of God.

With all that I know and have experienced in my 45 years I probably could go out and pastor my own church, and if I did I surely wouldn't be caught embezzling church funds or having affairs with staff members like a lot of them are.

Consider this. If you cant submit to those you can see, how can you say that you are truly submitted to God that you can't see. The devil is very crafty, if he can't get you one way, he will try deception that is very subtle.

The devil can fool you if you're at church 5 days a week - or not at all, and I put my faith and trust in God & Jesus Christ alone and not a preacher in a fancy suit. And being a pastor is not a calling it's a profession like anything else in my opinion, and God is not going to fault me for not submitting to the church or a pastor no more than he is the mailman or the post office.

Pastors are called by God. There are indeed those who are self called Pastors, but those who have been called by God have an anointing on their lives. When we stand before God, there will be millions will accuse you have neglecting being in Church, when they put their lives in danger everytime they go to Church.

When I die it's going to just be me standing before God; and he's not gonna judge me on wether I went to church or not but on wether or not I always believed in him and his son Jesus, and how I treated those around me on a daily basis. And I whole heartedly believe in God the father and his son and always have, and I am always kind and helpful to those around me which are both going to sit very very well with him. Anyone who does not think so or questions that will be walking a very dangerous line with God and will have to answer for it.

I did not say God would judge you. I said that Christians who put their lives in danger every day in order to go to Church, will judge you. This said even in the dessert the children of Israel attended Church in a tent. David's heart's cry was to build a Temple for God. We live in a Country were Church attendance is a a freedom we enjoy without fear. Those who do not have the freedoms we have, they will judge those who are too lazy to go to Church are to strong willed to allow themselves to be another the leadership of a Church Pastor. There are many excuses for skipping Church and the devil will provide excuse for anyone who doesn't want to go to Church. I prefer to go to Church and sing and worship God with fellow believers.

I feel for those who face dangers practicing their faith or religion just as I feel for those who are drinking out of the gutter and starving, but truth is I can't live my life based on the misfortunes of others and I am very grateful that I'm in a position to make my own choices freely and to have the things that I have.

I have a Pastor who knows that he was called by God to come and start a church in Bristol Uk and he dosent stand in the way of the Holy Spirit moving. So that is why we have revival in our church now and we are going to take that power to the streets and see people touched and changed for the glory of God

I do believe there are those pastors who are called by God or feel a "calling" to serve, but then there's thousands who do it for an occupation instead of becoming a plumber, bus driver, accountant, etc. Those are the ones who usually turn out greedy and get all caught up in the many church scandals out there.

Love you Betty but this statement is not Biblical.

1 The saved will be on bent knees before Christ.
(The Bema Seat Judgement)
2 There is only one who accuses and it aint the Body of Christ.
(Revelation 12:10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.)
3 One puts their live in danger just going to a picnic in Detriot.

4 The Bible says do not forsake the assembling together with other believers. It does not say it has to be done in a building.
(Hebrews 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: )

Isn't church considered "where two or more gather in my name", and if so I do that all the time with family and friends and there's no set time, collection plate, or fancy suits required.
