Happy new year! I celebrated New year's eve with a church, we're worshiping Jesus (without the "Bam", as they told), we're dancing the dance of David. Christian can also have fun but by fully praising Jesus, and I suggest you to participate in this experience next time. I still don't have access to our video (and I haven't brought a camera). So I prefer to borrow this clip they shared about the New Year's Eve Service at Hillsong Church. It was almost similar.
One of the performances that we often see during Christmas involves children, and Christmas is better known as children's festivity; this allows children to get in the habit of to be in contact with the environment of Christianity, like them of the Orcutt Apostolic Church. Have a merry Christmas and celebrate our Lord Jesus instead of shopping or gorging on foods.
Whatever what is told, it's time for Christmas celebrating like this in Church of England. Instead of staying at home, celebrating the Solaris (the paganian celebration of sun) and watching for horror movies, it's better to go to church and celebrate our Lord Jesus or to go to even the smallest evangelical concert and worship our God. Pray only our Lord Jesus!
I wonder if those Christians know their difference compared to other Christ's believers. I wonder if they can judge what others think. In front of this situation, I'm proud of my church, I'm proud of the pastor who teaches me, I respect the others. We have a great opportunity to serve Jesus in joy. Enjoy it!
A practice that each church have to do this time, whatever what they preach, whatever what they tell, as long as they teach to serve our Lord Jesus, even for Calvinists (even if I don't agree with them on this point), as written in Mat 28 : 19. An archaic practice that we have to modernize with event creator and designer in order to attract more people. It urge, view the debacle that reigns nowadays.
Must we swallow everything that is taught to us? What's the limit? Every churches don't apply fully the Bible. If not, for example, the Earth has been filled of living churches. But there is always something good in each church. How can we select them among everything each church offers us? How can we choose them? What's the criterion of selection? Only the Scriptures. And only the Scriptures. (Sola scriptura, and every Protestant accept this). If something they teach isn't against the Bible and can be proven by some verses of the Bible, without handling, we can hear it (it's up to you, if you'll accept or not after that). In contrary, we can enjoy ourselves to laugh for what they teach us. Here's an example of how we can teach those teachers, on our turn, how to serve Jesus. If we are wasting time to criticize the others about a dust, we can't progress.
