Buffoonery , Showmen, Charlatans

* Disclaimer: not all men and women of the pulpit fit in these categories.
We really have to ask God for decernment . There are so many people who are misinformed. When you look back at the days of old, the biblical accounts " the church" did not exist . There were Jewish temples. There were pagan rituals. There were gathering places where many spreaders of the word spoke of their knowledge of God. But there wasn't a building that one person stood before people passing plates around to collect anything. As a matter of fact the one man who had audiences like that, passed baskets around to feed people. The antics that current churches connect with are far from the original gathering places. Gods grace and mercy are not to be bought. Through Jesus we are saved.

2 Peter 1:3His divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue.
