Paul's Passing Thoughts

What A Home Fellowship Might Look Like

Posted in Uncategorized by Andy Young, PPT contributing editor on January 8, 2017

The Body of Christ was intended to be a family.  The term “born again” should clue us in to that.  A believer is the literal offspring of God the Father.  We are born into God’s family.  Being children of the Father makes us all brothers and sisters.   The word “fellowship” is the Greek word “koinenia”, and it means “having in common.”  What we have in common as God’s children is being a part of the same family!

So when we gather together, it is nothing more than a family gathering.

Today I am offering you a look inside my home.  The video below shows you what a typical home fellowship in my home looks like.  Right now it’s just my wife and I and our five children.  But we would love to have you come fellowship with us!  It is unfortunate that the miles between us makes it impractical.  I ask that you pray that God will help us to be able to find other likeminded believers in our area who would come and fellowship with us.  I ask that you pray that we would be able to take the gospel to the people around us who need to hear it, so that they too can be a part of God’s family!

“And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers…And all that believed were together, and had all things common;”
~ Acts 2:42-44

Second Epistle of Andy to “Trevor”

Posted in Uncategorized by Andy Young, PPT contributing editor on February 17, 2016

Some time ago I relayed the account of a Facebook interaction I had with an individual I called “Trevor”.  Trevor is a young man in his early twenties.  I’ve had the privilege of having long conversations with him regarding theology and Biblical matters in general.  Trevor goes to a local church and has made a profession of faith, so giving him the benefit of the doubt (since it is not my place to make a judgment otherwise) I regard him as a brother in Christ.

Last Friday, Trevor and I got into another discussion, this time about the Law and how it pertains to believers.  Since he was pressed for time and our conversation was growing increasingly in depth, Trevor asked if he could pose some specific questions via a Facebook message to which I could then compose a more in-depth reply.  What follows is my response to Trevor.  His questions are included in the body of the response in bold italics.  I hope that you find it edifying!
