    Andy Young – “A Historical Survey of the First Century Christian Assembly”

    Andy, wow, you’ve touched on so many things that were part of my life and those in my life. The “All things common” part of your presentation is something so simple (and beautiful, logical, natural) and yet the EVIL ones and their man-made traditions and doctrines of demons have managed to complicate and confuse the matter as only the father of darkness and confusion can…and has. I agree with your assessment altogether.

    Yuck, communion time in my churches was also a time of doubt and ifs and a perhaps here and there. In a Baptist job, one brother was actually refused the plate with the crackers and the tiny reformed thought-up communion cups (those cheap plastic jobs; made in China, obviously), and in the very last church I ever attended (the one that was taken over within weeks and behind the scenes by an evil MacArthur clone), people were indeed watched and questioned on why they had skipped the crackers and juice. And loudly so. Those who revolted against the ‘godly’ authority of the elders and pastors, were banned (read: banned) from taking part until the EVIL men decided they were now part and parcel of God’s family . . . but, strangely enough, their money was good enough to be taken! Their money was never “banned” or under “church discipline.” I think I’m busy cracking up from laughter; I don’t know why…because of the absurdity of it all.

    When it came to tithing, the “godly” leadership brought in a . . . wait for it . . . a professional financial manager (an accountant) and he came up with “wonderful and godly ideas” and he worked out what every household MUST tithe in order for the church to grow (his emphasis was on survival!). This superior soul even said that students (which made up a big number of the church, as it was a city with a campus) HAD to tithe. My son, an auditor, pointed out that these students did NOT earn money and could not tithe if they’d tried. Being an auditor, my son pointed out several flaws in the professional “man of God’s” plan, one being that the place that the professional was from and our city’s demographics were worlds apart. The guy got red in his face, people started shouting, walked out, and my son and I knew that was the beginning of the end for us at that circus.

    Andy, a gymnasium for 2 million dollars? There must have been some serious cases of the small-man syndrome in your former church; that’s obvious. Today, Reformed churches get high flying ‘Marchitects” (that’s what these pompous people call themselves; this I-think-I-am-hot-because-I-am-an-architect lot) to build shopping malls and then call them churches, and believe me, these places are ugly monstrosities. These buildings are so bad that they are laughable, but, hey, a marchitect built it. Praise the sovereign gawtt and yer money, folks. These malls have bookshops, coffee shops, clothing departments (Calvinist/Reformed rubbish that they sell, like shirts, mugs).

    But all these things are in my past now and have been for a long time. Thank God that He took me and my loved one (son) out of that whore. Oh, let me not even go to what constitutes the family of God to this EVIL lot. Single? Divorced? Woman? Child? Ah, you’re second-class…in their “godly eyes.”

    Thanks for an incredible effort and great series, Andy. I hope that you too eventually put it into article form. It needs to get out there.

    The home fellowship is the only answer.

    I enjoyed your series despite the bitter and funny memories it unlocked.

    Starting to sink in more and more regarding the relevance of John’s sessions.
