What we need in the churches is the Holy Ghost and fire. We need what the old time saints had. More than anything else they had a dedication to God. When they prayed you knew that God was there.
Only one word for this performance. WOW. WHEN WORSHIP SHOWS UP AT THE VOICE!
At the risk of sounding like one of those zealots, it is time that we begin to openly draw a distinction between our Lord’s Ecclesia and Constantine’s Church.
