And if not, rented or low-cost buildings another option to consider.

Rudy... just because I am not familiar with your abbreviation I.C. - could you clarify what that is. Thanks!

If it is God's will for your illness then why are you seeking medical attention to get rid of it?

The home assembly eliminates that problem. The more gets saved it spreads out.

Great persecution in China right now with home assembly. Bulldozing it down!! Don't know if us in the U.S. will ever have to face that.

Re: Church Planting

When you envision Church as that place you lived in mentally when you were a kid, and add the ability to create, which growing up should provide, you will found the Church of God in you, always in service, which I liken to being a gardener, at least in a practical aspect; you are just making things grow, and you uproot other things, and prolly leave many things alone, more or less.

Re: Church Planting

First Church believers were forced to move house to house for fear of discovery.
As we know discovery could mean even death. Remember there were guys like Saul and the boys seeing to it. When rest finally came to the Church it must have been huge relief. Wanting to love the Lord together brought growth and naturally that brings a need for more space. It is natural for Saints to want to meet in a nice place. Saints in other parts of the world still are meeting in underground assembly's wishing they could have what we have. So! Be thankful and not synical.

Re: Church Planting

amen, but i view the rest you say has come to the Church as an illusion, and comes with a very high cost.

Actually, they met house to house regardless of persecution. When persecution ended they pretty much became catholics and took over secular court buildings and began building their own special meeting houses.

They did not meet house to house because they feared being discovered. They were constantly at the temple and in synagogues witnessing, in the midst of persecution. They weren't trying not to be seen.
