Hi to all!
I want to say thank you to
all who have been praying for me, Fay & 1 Cor. 10:31,
and others of you as well. I have a great
report. After blood work, CT Scans &
Mammogram, I am healthy. There is no more cancer,
Thyroid meds in check and good level, since I have no
Thyroid due to prior cancer. No more breast
cancer. All blood work is great!! Two things to
pray for is a cure for Lipedema and my inner left knee for
return of cartilage. Lipedema is what grows the body
size whether you want it to or not. You can google it and
realize it can become very dangerous. I am doing all I
can to fight it. I am walking with my hiking poles for
endurance, strength and movement of arms and legs. I
am increasing there. Yay!!
My brother Mike is home and
doesn't answer his phone. Not surprise there. He
is to report to therapist 1x a week, work out with his sons
3xs weekly and to volunteer weekly at an animal shelter to
be engaged and also medically do see Neurologist as for his
Seizures and Dementia. Keep him in your prayers
for salvation in Jesus, he and whole family.
Now, my church which has
been associated with the Evangelical Free Church
Denomination since its founding, and theology is
literal/historical and Premillennial in Eschatology.
They are Dispensational over the many years believing in a
literal 7 year Tribulation but leave room for a Pre/Mid or
Post Tribulation understanding. This week they chose
to abandon the Eschatological teaching of Premillennial
thought and replaced it with the word "Glorious" in the
Statement of Faith. I have read numerous statements of
Faith for varying Denominations, Independent Churches and
such. The thought being to "own" what you believe and
stand for. It was brought up by me that it is
important to maintain the statement if you believe and teach
Premillennialism, the maintain it in the Statement of
Faith. If you choose to become Reform in Theology then
incorporate that. This allows an "anything goes, even
Replacement Theology, which Reformers basically are.
They do not see Israel in God's future plans, that God is
done with Israel since the Jewish leaders condemned Jesus to
the Cross and death.
By the ambiguous word,
"Glorious" (although when Christ does return it will be
glorious) has left the church wide open to all
thinking. It was also brought to the attention of the
leadership, if changing this, what comes next? What
else will you change?
The one more thing that
REALLY got me was this:
Below is Pastor "M's response to his
announcement to a New Members class being offered.
Here is the conversation below I copied off
facebook. Ta, who apparently is a new believer
asks what is involved in becoming a New Member.
The Pastor answers immediate.
D Did you
know that you need
only be 12 years old
to become a member
of our church?
Members who are 18
or older are allowed
