I grew up in a fundamentalist style church of Christ in Alabama with a preacher like this and he was great at preaching fear and guilt...he REALLY loved Revelations and the Old Testament, and according to him, God was gonna incinerate just about everyone on the planet...including us!
It's a BIG universe out there people and it just keeps on expanding. Once we destroy our planet, the universe will continue to exist...as if we were never here. Have a nice day :)
Ancient boys club for small minded men... (sigh)
At one point in time, God supposedly spoke directly to man and told him to write all this important stuff down, but he quickly realized man was imperfect and did a lot of stupid things, you know...like the way men burp and fart all the time, and how they always want to go to war for stupid reasons, and how they like to lay around and drink beer and get fat, and then pass out and never fix stuff that needs fixing around the house....you feel me? So naturally, he blamed his failures on his miserable creation and that's why the bible is so confusing and why all religions hate each other and want to drop nukes on one other. Yeah, that about sums it up! We blew it people.
Knowing ALL things beforehand and having the knowledge that his own creation would turn out to be a miserable disappointment, why did the Old Testament God decide to bring humans into the world to begin with??? Talk about a let down!
We never miss an opportunity to congregate people! Church hours are as follows: 9am Sunday school, 10am regular Service, go home to eat lunch, take a nap and go back at 5pm. Wednesday hours: 6pm to 7pm. Got it??? Good!
We sing "A capella" people. No instruments ever! (the Lord would not approve...so we're told.)
