    You make it sound like all who are connected to the Body through denomination are in "bondage", that is equally ridiculous.

    Calling the foot stinky is not His intent, but you go ahead, carry on!

    Some of this stuff here is stupid and ignorant. There is not bondage in a denomination. People come and go as they please. As John said we ALL have free will.
    Just notice that the weird kinky and behind the door stuff that goes on in the church is usually done by the fake and frauds among the independents.

    EXAMPLE: TODD BENTLEY!!!

    Actually the foot is not the denoms, but the weird independents who are totally out of control with no accountability

    We should appreciate what others are carrying and bear with them in their weaknesses, not attack them. We don't have to embrace all things denominational or more accurately "man-made", of which the denominations have no monopoly.

    Some people are bit deceived about the whole topic. While a denomination may be circumspect in its approach to "new", some are out on the other end beleiving that if it's not "new" it's not of God. Extremes are on both ends, missing God.

    I have attended denom churches all my life. I love them and never had any one of them attack me or condemn me about my beliefs even if they were different than others. As long as you do not cause trouble in the church, you are welcome.
    I remember attending a Word of Faith church in Oklahoma. The moment I walked in, I was looked at with suspicion. All I did was walk in and shake hands with a few and find my seat. But this usher followed me all the way to my seat and begin to argue with me. He quizzed me about my beliefs. It was typical of many independent groups I have been in. The Jesus Only are a lot like the Word of Faith when it comes to arguing and divisiveness. I want little to do with them. I will take the denom church that allows me to believe the Bible and does not pull a hissy over something that is in conflict with their stated Doctrines. Thank God for the Denominations!

    I didn't say that...nor did I even imply ..in fact if you read back through I addressed GROWTH as a process we should be doing but SOME reject the leading of the Holy Spirit when He leads outside those perimeters we are familiar and committed to..THEN we are in bondage...some believe deception is trying to lead them astray because that is what they were taught...

    That's your perspective not mine..knowing brothers and sisters are in bondage is not calling anyone stinky..don't start with the personal accusations John..you do this every time when you either get tired of a debate or run out of responses...
