If the Christian Church were to return to it's purpose and mission established by the early church fathers,?
What do you think pastors and priests would do and / or how would they change?
Do you think the religion would change in general?
do you think there would be a chance that denominational divides could be overcome.
Please be respectful in your answers. I am genuinely interested in thoughtful answers. Thank you
People! I know very well that we are to worship in corporate AND that we are to support the church. I am asking a simple question. How would we as the church be affected (including preachers and priests) if tithing were to be used to support the poor and needy - to feed the hungry, clothe the poor, save the unsaved and love the unloved.
it has nothing to do with questioning peoples generosity... where do you get that from?
the idea of any church should be church planting first and foremost. Shouldn't that mean that as the home church grows, they split off to other homes?
yes pastors and priests go to seminary. A good thing. Shouldn't they be responsible to pay their loans on their own just as any person who trains to be a doctor but works in the mission field pays for their student loans?
for the rest of you, although I can't imagine how as Christians you could have misunderstood the intent of this question, For my weak expression of it, I apologize and pray you will forgive me.
