Just wondering why people more over claim to be apostolic then to be witnesses of Jesus.
Example, a man tells another man," I go to an apostolic church." Now I know what he means but why don't he say what he should>
I go to an assembly where we believe in the teachings of Jesus the Christ and hold to the truths contained within the doctrines taught by the apostles.
Sometimes it sounds like a cop out from witnessing to people and telling them that they are pentecostal and believe in the pentecostal experiences.
And I do agree with what you said, but apostolic seems to get in the way of Jesus in our witness to others.
Very seldom in life have I heard a believer say," I'm a follower of Jesus" most of the time they say we're apostolic, or we're assmebly of God, and so on.
It's almost like the baptist, telling everyone, We're Baptist.
I'm reflecting back to what Paul described, some say I'm of Paul, and others say they are of this person and that..
It's really strange. Back in the day, they use to call us, holy rollers.
The other day this Saturday I was talking with a pentecostal minister, or one who claims to be, and I mentioned to him something to the effect, " that was back when they called us holy rollers." he and his wife just looked at me and had no idea what I had just said or why.
So I said to him, the church you are going to! when I attended it was in a time when people fell in the floor and rolled. His wife with her thick eyeliner looking up with a little smirk on her face said; ' Not anymore!"
