    BLESSED AND INSPIRED BY THIS TEACHING.

  2. Thanks for the insight, Rick!

  3. I need to know, should a mason, a non-member, be part of the Worship service because he is friends with the Pastor and head Deacon who is the Pastor’s Brother? If what I read about Mason’s is true, putting a rope around their neck, blindfolded, paraded around naked with the threat of cutting their throat if they do not keep the secrets of the Lodge, saying Jesus is NOT the way to heaven and he was not raised from the dead, that God can be any God, why would this be allowed in any Church? I belong to a small eldrly Church where I was just told I cannot bring a hurting support group because we don’t want outsiders using our building. But, we welcome a mason to do as he pleases and everyone thinks he is just so great

    • Eugene, so much to unpack here, I normally would not respond publicly to a question like this but it was publically asked. The question about the mason is a legitimate question. And if your welling to receive this, most masons have no idea what they have joined, what they thought they have joined is fraternity of men who are interested in growing in their community and in brotherhood, they also believe this is a great way to give back to their community, they must believe in a higher power to join so most who declare that they are christians have no problem in joining because they don’t have to deny the God of the Bible to join that comes much much later. I know these things because at one point i was a mason and I went into it thinking that all roads do lead to a creator. Which i have repented from that life, I now know that there Is only 1 Door into the Kingdom and that is His Son who was born of a virgin and died on the cross for our sin and was resurrected 3 days later!! HalleluYah. the problem that i read is not about the mason but rather you, it is you who is offended, by your rejection of not being allowed to do what you wanted to do. Your losing the opportunity to help this mason out of it of his connection with freemasonry. I know this question is over 2 yrs old. I hope it finds you with in already corrected heart and you have already brought this man next to you and expressed your concern for him and his family and that together you both are helping all the masons out of it. i pray this message reaches any and all who come in contact a mason in their church. I pray everyone shows Yeshua ( Jesus ) that they Love Him exactly like He asked us too. John 14:15
      (Keep All His Commands not just the ones that fit your life. and your can’t do this if your still caught up in man made doctrine)

    I am inspired by the questions and come to remember that our bodies are God’s temple, and this makes me a church regardless of what and where I am. These questions can be used anywhere at anytime as long as a person has a chance to minister to people. Keeping in mind that this world is not our home, and we are created uniquely for a purpose; each person has to realize God is in him and there is need to listen to His voice. If a person is not careful, he/she will be tempted to listen to the voice of the wrong ones (people or the way they feel). It is not the way we feel that makes us God’s children, but it is believing in Jesus Christ being our Lord and personal Saviour that makes us to be a true church. Each person must listen to the voice of God and check whether or not the life he/she is living is Godly. You are your own true person and God knows exactly the way you know yourself and even more. Most people live a life full of pretense, i.e. being righteous in the eyes of people just because they were recommended once or twice in their life time. All a person need is to be honest with God because whether we say it or not, God knows exactly who and what we are. We need Him now more than ever!

  7. I am a retired pastor participating in a seminar on Church growth, and your “5 questions to answer for potential Church members” will contribute to our planning sessions.

    May be we should revert back a few years and learn how preachers and our grandfathers grew their Churches.

    Times have changed, yes, and sometimes we can justify unsuccessful activities by blaming change. Christ is the same yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

  8. Thank you so much, I will apply these principles in our church
    May you please send me the membership class manuals if possible so I can have samples
