Re: Apostolic Church of Pentecost larger than UPCC

They're not Gah.

14. In the sanctity of marriage, as a life long exclusive commitment between one
man and one woman.

In fact I think that the insinuation of "hateful" Pentecostals is coming mostly from the fertile imaginations of bitter, backslidden ex Apostolics who are constantly trying to find a way to justify their actions. ~ strait shooter

No, no, CC1. Nothing against your efforts, which I do appreciate. It was just something that struck me odd when I first glanced at the thread...

The Apostolic Church of Pentecost (ACOP) is a Pentecostal Christian denomination with origins in the Pentecostal revival of the early 20th century. Although multi-national, ACOP has its strongest membership in Canada. In 2002 ACOP reported “approximately 24,000 members in Canada, with 450 ministers and 153 churches.”[5][6] There are ACOP churches in all the provinces of Canada.[7] ACOP’s headquarters is in Calgary, Alberta.

UPCI Statistics
4,358 churches in 2007 (which includes 4099 autonomous and 258 daughter works).[15] The UPCI in North America has 9,085 ministers and reports a Sunday school attendance of around 650,000. The UPCI has a presence in 175 other nations with 22,881 licensed ministers, 28,351 churches and meeting places, 652 missionaries, and a foreign membership of over 3 million.

What difference does it really make if socialists go to church if they're still socialists when they come out?
We have socialized health care. Our major utilities tend to be Crown Corporations but we are not Socialist.

Capitalism is alive and well here, just with a few restraints. Don't believe all the propaganda you hear.

Socialism is government ownership of industry. Canada hardly fits that description.

It's what's called a mixed economy. Certain things (socialized healthcare, for an obvious example) fit that description. But capitalism - private ownership of industry - is the norm.

Mixed economy... Capitalism has major flaws. Socialism has major flaws. Canada and much of Europe have tried a sort of mix and match approach. And over many years it's proven to be quite effective.
