How could that happen? God presumably told them exactly what food to order and how to prepare it.
Yes clearly the catering staff have deep seated spiritual issues that only the ' chosen few' can see and need exorcising of their demons. Or perhaps the Food Standards Agency are also a tool of the devil as we and Latigo are and are clearly persecuting SMC because they are doing the "Lord's Work" (Sarcastic rant over)
I've not commented on here for ages although I have been reading regularly and meaning to comment. It's great to se so many new contributors and even better to hear that so many from Struthers are waking up and seeing that there is life outside of Struthers and that this is more like the life that Christ intended for us. One where we can say we with David "I was glad when they said to me, let us go to the house of the Lord"
The other side to this of course, is that someone looking for a new church and doing a google search on Struthers, will now be able to see exactly what kind of church they are getting into if they choose to join SMC. This was something I had prayed for a long time would happen. When I was considering the move, I did Google SMC and everything I found made them sound wonderful. Perhaps if this forum and the Latigo site were in operation then, I would have run a mile.
I echo the thought of the person who said they doubt there will be any massive change. I know some have left and I'm sure others will also leave too in the near future. Considering they have spoken against churches the are doing anything to keep young people interested in coming to church and most people are ' strongly discouraged' from getting married then maybe they will, over the years, dwindle down to family and friends of leaders. My prayer is that those who are desperately unhappy will have the courage to get out and find God's best for their lives and that those who are proverbially closing their eyes and blocking their ears will have something of an epiphany.
Hi to everyone who has joined recently. It really is great to hear from you. Blackwatch I take my hat off to you. Be careful and remember that you are valued. I'm sure you have plenty of backing in prayer. God bless
