Reviews - What do customers think about New Testament Church And Its Ministries?
Somewhat basic and more opinion than scholarly. Oct 28, 2008
Don't get me wrong..... I know the difference between assembly-line bleached bread and home made. Man bleaches bread because he wants to have as much control over the product as possible. You can walk into a grocery store in Portland Maine and pick up a loaf of big-boy bread, and you will find the same exact loaf in a grocery store in Fresno, CA. Man likes to assembly-line things because he doesn't like surprises. When you walk into big-boy's manufacturing plant and look at the loafs coming down the conveyor belt, the loaf your looking at is exactly like the one before it and the one after it. This is by design. Big-boy's product is not designed for nutrition. Its designed for consistency.
Man has done the same thing with church. Every Sunday just about the same? The Sunday your looking at is just like last Sunday, and next Sunday will follow the same. Man designs it this way.
He's not interested in nutrition. He's interested in control and consistency.
Pastors come popping out of seminary assembly-lines, and so follows their churches. Again, this is by design. Man wants his control and his consistency. So you get to eat the spiritually nutritional equivalent of cardboard.
Families grow up on big-boy bread, and the taste of home made nutritious stuff is strange to them. Christians grow up 10-20-30 years on and don't realize their spiritual growth is seriously retarded. All they've had is assembly-line church with all of the nutrition bleached out of it.
Getting back to the book. The book goes back to the basics of what fellowship meetings originally were. Before church was assembly-lined.
The writing is pretty basic and more just straight forward layout of the facts with no historical or scholarly meat added. Having said that, I'm very glad that books are starting to address this subject.
For way too long the church has looked more like a brick house than a house of living stones. So, I hope more books are written on this subject.
