  1. Just thought of this re house churches. In Acts 2:46 And day by day, attending the temple together and breaking bread in their homes, they received their food with glad and generous hearts, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to their number day by day those who were being saved. – And breaking bread house to house. And you missed the main part of Eph 4:11 And he gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the shepherds[c] and teachers,[d] 12 to equip the saints for the work of ministry, for building up the body of Christ,

  2. This idiot…when he was starting out he came to my house handing our flyers, he started with a "house church"….it was in his living room!

  3. To Husky ..Ecclesiastes 12 :14
    For God shall bring every work into judgement, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.

  4. Hey Stevie. Please show me ONE verse in the King James Bible which contains the words "go to church" or "local church". Just one verse please.

    Also could you please show me some scripture to defend making a local congregation subservient to the Federal government through incorporation? Please explain who owns the "incorporated property" you are standing on.

  5. 1 Cor 13 makes it clear that love is essential when using spiritual gifts. And love precludes the possibility of doing it in exchange for payment. I work as a programmer and I do my work for money. And once my employer stops paying me I will no longer work for them. But because i do it for money, I can't say my service is an act of love as there is no sacrifice in the time I spend.

    Teaching the Bible on the other hand involves the use of a spiritual gift for the benefit of other believers and according to Paul, the exercise of such a gift and any gift should be done out of love. And if it is done out of love, one is not going to make payment a condition. I believe most if not all of us know that doing something for money and out of love are not really compatible.

    Assume you ask me to help you do yard work for a few hours at your house. I agree to help you and I assure you I'm doing it out of love for you as a fellow christian. Yet, the one condition is that you must pay me $100 for my labors. Would anyone still think I was going to help you out of love? If so, where exactly is the love involved?

  6. You mention being a pastor is your job and you get paid because people get paid for their jobs. The problem with that idea is that the NT doesn't speak of being a pastor as a job. It involves work, even as being a father involves work but it is not  "work" that is for making money.  Elders are to use their gifts and pastor the family of God out of love even as the older people in an earthly family are to lead and help their families out of love. If not, should someone have to pay their father a fee any time he exerts time and effort to help them in some way? Sounds a little odd and unnatural to me. So it is with spiritual fathers charging a fee for any of their labors for their spiritual families. Charging money for spiritual labors appears to be forbidden by Christ himself who forbid his disciples from receiving pay in exchange for using their spiritual gifts in Matt 10:7 "Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. You received without paying; give without pay." I'm not aware of any passage in the entire NT where this prohibition is done away with.

  7. I don't believe Heb 10:25 is even talking about a church meeting. The word for assembly is "episynagogue" which is never used in reference to a local church meeting in the NT. The word is used only one other time in 2 Thes 2 where it is translated "gathering together" and it is in reference to the great assembly that will occur in the air when Christ returns: 2 Thes 2:1-2 "Now we beseech you, brethren, by the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and by our gathering together unto him, That ye be not soon shaken in mind, or be troubled, neither by spirit, nor by word, nor by letter as from us, as that the day of Christ is at hand." Note that Heb 10:25 also refers to this "day" i.e. "as you see the day approaching."

    Hebrews 10:25 seems to be more a call to not utterly forsake the reality and hope of Christ's return and the respective impact it should have on our lives, rather than being a command to go to church regularly.

    Note that even if Heb 10:25 is talking about a church meeting, the nature of the assembly described is one of mutual exhortation "exhort one another" and not the traditional "church" where a lot of the exhortation entails a pastor lecturing for 30-50 minutes etc. while everyone else sits and listens.

  8. Sin is in our nature, so Isn't homosexuality equally much sin as every other sin? Btw Steven, you look like Jack from Lost, lol.

  9. Just a question? I have been studying the Bible, (In your Opinion) why wasn't the book of Enoch included in the KJV? I know this question doesn't have anything to do with this video,….Thanks for your response

  10. Citing the 5000 member church in Jerusalem is not a solid argument to attack house churches with. The church at Jerusalem was very unique in that all the members were relatively new converts. And because there were so many of these young believers, they of course needed to receive further instruction. So how would this instruction be accomplished? By means of the 12 apostles who were basically among the few specifically trained teachers in Jerusalem at the time. And the way they would instruct them is by having them all gather in Solomon's porch (Acts 5:12) It would not have been practical or possible to disperse all these 5000 converts into small groups to receive instruction since there were really no other teachers at the time who were as trained and knowledgable of vital christian truths as the apostles were. And also, many of these new converts were pilgrims who had journeyed from all around the world to Jerusalem to observe passover and pentecost (Acts 2:5-11). Eventually, they would have to return home. But before that would happen, they, like all the other new converts, needed to be instructed in some of the more basic truths of the faith. This is what occured when they would meet together in Solomon's porch as they continued to be instructed by the apostles (Acts 2:42).

  11. You seem to suggest that a real church will have a qualified pastor. Pastors/elders are important and will typically be the norm among a body of true believers, but no where does the NT teach that a gathering of believers is only a church if their be qualified pastor/elders among them. Was the church of Corinth a real church? I don't recall ever reading of their elders or pastors in 1 Corinthians.

  12. Where does the NT speak of "preaching" (i.e. 40 minute monologue etc) as something that is to be done regularly in a church meeting? Such a method of teaching is found no where in the NT. 

  13. Note that Jesus forbid his disciples from receiving pay in exchange for using their spiritual gifts in Matt 10:7 " "Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse lepers, cast out demons. You received without paying; give without pay."

  14. "The labour is worthy of his hire" is NOT referring to payment or a salary. It's referring to the hospitality owed a gospel workers went about serving others using their spiritual gifts. "Luke 10:5-7 makes this pretty clear: "Whatever house you enter, first say, 'Peace be to this house!' And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest upon him. But if not, it will return to you. And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house."

  15. Your still many levels better than me as a christian even with that wrong doctrine. But still just for the sake of the fact that its not a true doctrine please listen to Matthew 11, and change it. Please.

  16. Please Pastor Anderson, please change this doctrine on gays. No one would look down on you, in fact people would have even more respect for you. I would think you were even a better christian if you just said that you were wrong about that doctrine. Everything else you says is almost spot on. The only really serious flaw I see is your doctrine on gays. Please Pastor Anderson rethink your doctrine. 

  17. Pastor Anderson your the greatest on earth  as a christian to me. However I feel that in respect to Homos you let your feelings dictate your doctrine in regards to them. I HATE HOMOS AS MUCH AS YOU. If a homo served me at a restaurant I would have a hard time eating the food, if I did at all. But If someone killed my parents I would hate them to, but I wouldn't let my feelings influence the truth, that a murderer could be saved. Just like gays can be saved to. 

  18. Thus  homos can be saved based on that statement made by Jesus. Since he said thatif they saw the works he did then Sodom would've remained. 

  19.   Jesus said in Matthew 11:23 And thou Capernaum, which art exalted unto heaven shalt be brought down to hell: for if the mighty works, which were done in thee, had been done in Sodom it would have remained unto this day. Pastor Anderson if gay people couldn't believe in Jesus then Sodom wouldn't have remained if they saw the mighty works they would've still rejected Jesus.
