Still looking for that perfect New Testament Church? I learned the folly of that by joining Living Faith Christian Fellowship. Not because the Bullens are sooooo much worse than everyone else, but because even the early church had it's share of problems.
A reader recently posted an article written to reach the Holdeman Mennonites, which had some interesting points in it. The BEST was a piece written to portray a person in the early church trying to find that elusive, most godly church. Read it here. It's very entertaining, yet very true and thought provoking.
If the church was having so much trouble back then, no wonder it's in the shape it is now! Is it really any worse than before? Perhaps it's just more institutionalized. Only God knows for sure. Enjoy the article, I did.
