Item description for The Bride and the Broken Wineskin by Stephen Andrews...
Overview "Must read material for serious Christians! As the end time storm clouds gather, it is time for an open and honest appraisal of the Church. The Bride and the Broken Wineskin steps outside the religious forms that currently limit the Church and makes a powerful call for a return to biblical team structure, capable of growing each believer up to his, or her, FULL ministry and potential service. The Author draws on many years of experience pastoring, ministering and prayerful bible study to provide the simple, yet powerful answers capable of re-energizing the Church to fruitful growth as we seek to bring In the end time harvest of souls." -Gary Robinson - A Geophysicist, and an Elder and minister to the body of Christ God views what we call "church" and sees two expressions: The Bride of the Lord Jesus 1. Passionate for her Groom. 2. Submitted to Jesus as her only head. 3. Flexible and desirous for the Lord's will. The Old and Broken Wineskin 1. Functional yet lacking true passion for the Lord. 2. Dominated by man. 3. Rigid and motivated by self-interest. The Question we must ask is, "our church" an expression of the bride or the old wineskin? We must endeavor to remove obstacles that keep us from being the expression of Christ's glorious bride on the earth, encourage pure worship, and surrender to Jesus the only Head of the church Brother Steve has some very valuable insight into the plight of our immature and broken condition as the Church. We must as individual believers; get our life from Christ, via the presence of His Holy Spirit. Steve rightly points out that eternal fruit is thus produced, and that our present focus on the organization tends to hinder the healthy growth of the organism, that glorious body of Christ, the Bride. May the Redeemer indeed reclaim and build His Church, as HE desires. -Marc Felder - A Minister of the Gospel that has established churches In the U.S. and Ireland
