1 John 5:12, NLT: "Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have God's Son does not have life."

Imagine in your mind, a vibrant, growing, thriving, living church. It is a place where the presence of God is felt; the members have genuine love and concern for each other; and true growth occurs consistently--both numerically, and, more importantly, spiritually. It has been said by some that the church in America is on the decline. To be certain, there are churches that are living and growing. But on the other hand, sadly, there are numerous churches that think themselves alive; but in truth, do not have the life in them. A. W. Tozer writes, "One hundred religious persons knit into a unity by careful organization do not constitute a church, any more than eleven dead men make a football team. The first requisite is life, always." If you were to take the pulse of your church today, what might you find? Does the blood of Christ Jesus course through the church's veins? Or does the pulse seem a bit faint, or hard to find? A great number of Christians confuse activity with life. A church can be quite busy and think in all their much-ado that they have Christ in them. But it is not activity that demonstrates there is life within a church; it is the life of Christ Himself, manifested through a spirit of unity and genuine love for God, the church, and others. John wrote, "...whoever does not have God's Son does not have life." As that is true, what should we say of a church if we see no signs of Christ living in it, except for that they do not have the Son in them?

I always thought TOBT was the devils playground with all the crap and porn that goes on here, but could be wrong on that.....all in the eyes of the beholder I guess. I know my religious buds stay far and clear from shenanigans like this.

You have a great day as well 55.
