"I don't think you've been around long enough at the church to make such a generalized statement about the people who attend the Lighthouse.
Do you know that there are quite a few lawyers, surgeons, pediatricians, nurses, dentists, architects, writers, network analysts, managers, and many, many other intelligent individuals who attend that church faithfully.
They don't sound like 'mindless sheeple' to me..."-Confuzed
Wait a minute, didnt you say..."Wow...I didn't know all this happened before.
I've just started visiting the lighthouse after i got a flyer at the 3rd st promenade.
I've actually enjoyed the sermons they preach. But I would like to know more about the division that happened in the church before i place membership there."-Confuzed
And yet you have been around long enough to make a character judgement?
Why cant you step up, and instead of coming as this "confused soul" Be bold and say Iam here to defend My church. But I would expect this from a member of the lighthouse! :roll:
By the way...I KNOW OF alot of lawyers, surgeons, pediatricians, nurses, dentists, architects, writers, network analysts, managers, and many, many other intelligent individuals who attend Morman, Kingdom halls, and Wiccan sanctuaries also....
Yeah confuzed...you really are confused :confused:
If confuzed1 won't step up, I WILL.
I will defend the church because the world needs to see both sides of this story...If Rick Ross believes in freedom of speech and he will not censure any of these posts (as he stated in a personal email)...then we should be able to state our case in this forum.
You have a free forum to blast the church and their members but no one has had the courage to step up and take a stand.
No church is perfect. I know that all too well. But at the same time, there are many churches out there who are preaching the Gospel and making an impact in the world for Jesus.
The Lighthouse isn't for everybody...just like the military, not everyone can be a Marine, the Army will take anybody, the Air Force offers a life of comfort, the Navy wants you to see the world...
Some churches will make you feel good, no judgment of sin, no condemnation, no committment, no evangelism, no preaching of the Gospel...others, well, the Lighthouse takes it seriously. We all have to stand before the judgment seat of Christ and we want to ensure that we hear these words, "Well done, good and faithful servant..."
So, if you don't like the Lighthouse, if you didn't like your experience there, or if you just don't like people there, GO FIND ANOTHER CHURCH..period. But stop blasting the church! I can't see how a born-again Christian (as you claim to be) would go around speaking evil of any blood-bought, God-fearing, Holy Spirit filled Christians who are trying their best to serve God. I hope you repent and ask God for forgiveness for the damage you've done to the Lighthouse by posting all this negative stuff about the church.
