Re: Different Types of Apostolic Churches

The Church of God I visit occasionally speak in tongues heard tongues and interpretation but itís a older congregation so they have experienced the moving of the Holy Ghost but the other ones have big crowds big choirs 3 services and seems like they put God on a time clock and rush people out to get the next crowd in no altar calls no moving of the Holy Ghost but grab a Latte and donut and enjoy the show

  3. Every sinner must repent of their sins.
  4. That Jesus name baptism is the only biblical mode of water baptism.

  6. The saint will go on to strive to live a holy life, pleasing to God.

There's a fairly large Church of God church not far from where I grew up. I wouldn't be scared to guess their regular Sunday morning attendance is close to 250 or better. That may not seem like a large number to some, but for my town, it certainly is.

Any way, I remember having heard talk from my former babysitter, an older woman I affectionately call Nana. Well, Nana said she talked to this woman from this COG and asked her why they didn't wear skirts all the time any more. The woman told her because the new pastor didn't believe it was wrong, but she had kept all her skirts just in case another pastor went back to teaching it was wrong one day.

I was like what?

My Nana, who has never been a church-going woman, said she looked at her puzzled and asked her how come it wasn't wrong anymore. The woman gave no solid explanation beyond the new preacher didn't say anything about it.

Now, this COG I speak of is beautiful. It's sanctuary could easily sit 600 people, if not more. Years ago they held huge Easter and Christmas programs about the life of Christ. They were beautiful and very moving; the singing and productions were grand, kind of like something Sister Aimee laid out for her Angelus Temple productions back in the 1920s and 1930s, I'd say. People from all different denominations would bring their churches and youth groups to these services. At the conclusion, there was almost always an altar call where people were invited to come and give their lives to the Lord. I remember hundreds of people flooding the altars and crying out to God.

That all changed when the former pastor resigned and a younger guy took his place. They go Facebook Live during their Sunday services, and I've watched a few of them. They're basically your run-of-the-mill Charismatic church with a lit platform, dim sanctuary, and no separation standard whatsoever.

It's sad.

You are all a bunch of Trinitarian enablers.
