Elena, I know God can heal Detroit and if all Christians would pray, the whole world would change. I also know that American cities are wicked. God didn't make them that way, man did evil and will continue to do evil til Jesus returns to gather His own. I also know you are always looking on the bright side and you are always positive. That is a wonderful gift God has given you. That is what I admire mostly about you. You see good in everything and I have a tendency to be the opposite. That is why I said you lift me up with your post. Christian love to you always.

---Elena_9555 on 7/21/14


Elena, bless your heart. I love you with Christian love. You have lifted me many times and not to be rude but I get angry when I know your living conditions. I can't imagine living in Detroit. You deserve much better and my heart aches for you. You are a godly woman and I love your post. I pray God puts a hedge of protection around you. Happy you found a good church. Sister, love you dearly

There are mega churches everywhere. I've not seen 1 that worshiped the ol time way in years. God didn't change but churches have surely changed. Instead of ol hymns, it's words on a screen that say the same things over and over. They call it praise and worship music. While I do live in this space of time, I still choose ol time preaching, praying, singing, shouting.

Elena I love your post. I'm so happy you found a good spiritual church to worship God. I've never been to a Lutheran church. I love to go to a Holy Spirit filled church. Sometimes I can tell when I walk into the door of a church. I love the church I'm going to now. I've had a hectic day so I'm gonna get comfortable and cool it til bedtime.

Cluny I have been in long winded ones too.
---shira4368 on 7/3/14


\\I never said 5000 cluny. you said that. I said do you think mega churches are drunk with the Spirit of God? I never mentioned a number.
---shira4368 on 7/2/14\\

I never said you did mention a number, shira.

I was quoting Bryan who misquoted the Bible yet again.

Perhaps I should have made the clearer. I thought I had done so with the different symbols before and after the quote.

Sorry for the confusion.

Still, longwinded services do not necessarily mean a powerful one. Jesus Himself condemned the use of many words.

Glory to Jesus Christ.
---Cluny on 7/3/14




I never said 5000 cluny. you said that. I said do you think mega churches are drunk with the Spirit of God? I never mentioned a number.
---shira4368 on 7/2/14


cluny you can bet your little self I have been in some powerful services that words can't describe. oh, alcohol wasn't served there either. it all started with a song that was sung for the glory of God and He got the glory that night. didn't get out of church til 1 am.
---shira4368 on 7/2/14


\\Most people don't know what it's like to be in a service where the Spirit of God takes over.. Most people don't even have a clue about a Spirit filled church. \\

You actually don't think YOU do, do you, shira?

**The first church of Peter had about 5000 converts after he spoke like a drunk.**

Wrong again, Bryan, as in all your pitiful attempts to quote Scripture.

it was only THREE thousand.

And no, it was NOT a megachurch because they didn't all stay in Jerusalem, but went back to their home countries.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
---Cluny on 7/2/14


I bet your souls see no "drunks" in a mega church of today. Jerry, the mega church you are talking about was filled with the spirit. Can we say that for the mega churches today? Most people don't know what it's like to be in a service where the Spirit of God takes over.. Most people don't even have a clue about a Spirit filled church. When our children grow up they will never have heard of it.
---shira4368 on 6/29/14


Byran, the church ARE the christians...

not a building having lush interiors, well groomed landscaping, furnishings that would be pleasing to the worldly eye, wages to pay the workers - and which 80% to 90% of the donations/tithes go to its upkeep.

All denominational churches are worldly and must obey the rulings of the government/IRS to keep their non-profit status.

The early church, the christians, did not need buildings, fine furniture, grooms landscaping, or paid anyone to preach the word. All were done out of love for their fellow man.
---Steveng on 6/29/14


The first church of Peter had about 5000 converts after he spoke like a drunk. And everybody hear him in their on language. Would you call that a mega church? God is not against mega churches, he is not against micor churches either. I think all church should be mega churches. But most believe don't believe like that. Is it right or is it wrong? God see's us as one body. So don't curse your little finger and don't curse abdominal area. All joints supply.

---Elena_9555 on 6/29/14


I have no idea how the very first one was spawned (or which ONE was the first one) but I'm guessing that GREED is what spawned all those which followed.

When certain greedy men saw just how much money went into the big one they wanted a 'slice of the cake'.

Church (in a great many cases) no longer means 'God's house'. It means BIG BUSINESS.
---Rita_H on 6/29/14


What spawned megachurches?

Usually someone decided, "Now we'll have a real NT church with ME as the head."

There are several in my city that collapsed when the founder retired or left, leaving large plants.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Moderator, I need to correct the word spurned to, What designated or even spawned the mega churches. Thank you.
---Diane on 6/27/14


What or even who? Even the Unsomega churches.
2nd. Cor. 11 v 14, influenced pastors for the Lust of their flesh. Telling the peoples Lies for the #s & $s.

Pastors are not to minister for filthy lucre sake. 1st. Peter 5 v 2.
---Lawrence on 6/27/14


Do you mean 'spawned' rather than spurned?
---Rita_H on 6/27/14


For NewSpring my church, we started with 15. 2 months later we opened with 115 people in a small conference room at a local university. A year later and after much prayer and some loans, good leadership we moved into a 800 seat place, then 2 years later we built our own place, 2 years later we built a satellite campus, now we have 10 campuses and 35,000 weekly. Honestly we do not know - we have no master plan, though we do have goals. We just have good quality Sunday services, defined mission, good leadership, relevant teaching, great volunteers, and most important God's blessing. People just keep coming and we keep making room. "To reach people far from God you have to do what no one else is doing (short of sin)."

Sorry, I meant to use the word, Designated, Not spurned.
---Diane on 6/27/14


Dianne, do you mean what 'spawned' them, that is what brought them about?
---Warwick on 6/27/14


I believe you meant "spawned." Spurned is when someone leaves a relationship.
---KarenD on 6/27/14


Can you explain your question more, please?

It has several possible answers, depending on what exactly you are asking.

Glory to Jesus Christ!
