7 Takeaways from a New Testament Gathering of the Church

If you are like me, the idea of visiting a New Testament gathering of the saints has always been a desire and a longing of your heart. But, how do we go back 2000 years?

God’s House and Church Building Idolatry

Before we can see the next move of God we will have to surrender our Idols. Most Christians in the 21st century say they understand the word of God but with their mouth the defile His House on a daily basis. The main problem is that we have been doing it for so long that is has now become a part of our regular speech. So with the same mouth that we worship Him, we also celebrate our prideful idols. Nowhere can this be better...
