Steps you can start to take
We are contacted by phone and email every week to answer what are often basic questions about the nature of the Church and what we call the living network. There are those who think there is nothing in the Bible about a network but Abraham, Moses, John the Baptist and the early Church all promoted the people gathering in a network for the purpose of love and charity. Christ commanded his disciples to make the people sit down in small companies united in ranks of hundreds and in fifties.
We offer a few simple steps to make your search for the kingdom more effective.
Step 1: Join the Local Email Group
Joining an email group based on location is not essential but it is the beginning and can make it easier to find others of like mind or facilitate the of seeking that kingdom of God and His righteousness.
These network groups are local, private and moderated electronic group for the purpose of:
- Bringing people together in a living network.
- Creating the perfect bonds of liberty necessary to maintain a living network of love.
- Forming The Congregation of a peculiar people like the early Church.
Step 2: Subscribe to The Kingdom Newsletter
Step 3: Ask for help
A minister or volunteer Personal Contact Minister (PCM) on each group should be there to help you find and gather with a Congregation of Record. Everyone on the network should be there to help everyone else come together like Christ commanded.
A contact point is essential in the development of any successful Fractal Network. Abraham, Moses and Jesus all appointed men to help form social networks for the purpose of providing a daily ministration through a communion of charity.
The real goal is to freely assemble so you can do what Christ told us to do which is love one another.
Step 4: Gather in faith
Contact the closest free assembly or form a local congregation and choose a minister who we can connect with other ministers of the Living network. Do this for the purpose of serving others, not to be served. Gather by phone, email, texting, and meeting when possible. Do this in the character of Christ with the hope of serving all the other congregations networking in a fellowship of faith like the early Church.
Once you are connected to a recognized volunteer minister you will be connected to a living network. You cannot effectively love your neighbor as yourself is you will not gather with them. If you are willing to gather then you must do it in the name of Jesus the Christ. To come in his name is to come together to serve others and not be served.
You should not seek to "belong" to congregations or denominations and your loyalty should be to Christ alone. You connect to a nearby free assembly and it's minister because in that gathering you may be of service to others who are seeking the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. You should not be looking for a Church that makes you feel good nor a congregation of people that allows you to feel comfortable. You should gather to do good and to comfort others in righteousness.
- "Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God." 2 Corinthians 1:4

What have we forgotten to do?
We were told to repent and seek the kingdom of God and His righteousness.
What does that mean, what does it look like?
What has happened is that Americans and most of the people around the world have been making social compacts with men who call themselves Benefactors, but in reality they weaken society and grow in power like 2 Samuel 8 said they would. They exercise authority one over the other to provide benefits. In order to provide these Benefits they force people to contribute in a compelled offering. The people chose to accept this covetous system and became more Slothful, but are also snared into a corvee system of Bondage.
People wanted/desired those benefits that come from the cost of their neighbors' expense and even at the expense of the liberty of their children. Those are covetous systems that make the people human resources or what the Bible calls Merchandise. Providing for the needs of society by forcing the contributions of the people may be convenient at first, but it erodes the character of society and such Covetous Practices curses the children.
Modern Churches have turned a blind eye to the commandment about not coveting what belongs to your neighbor and went along with these social schemes which make the word of God to none effect.
People wanted to have public schools at their neighbors' expense rather than by local community charity like we used to do in America.
They wanted social security at their neighbors' expense rather than depend on charity if their own resources failed them. This made it convenient for people who no longer had to do ought for their parents because they said they gave at the civil Temples of the state.
Americans at one time were a shining example of a charity driven society. You can see by the words and deeds of earlier Americans like David Crocket that if anyone is going to restore America they must repent and change their thinking. America has become a socialist nation for over a hundred years. We must turn around and go the other way.
But, for those who do want to change this direction, they can begin to do so right now. The unrighteous Mammon will fail and is failing now. Like Rome it will fall and take many with it.
Those who can only begin to imagine what course we must take may need a list to inspire them.
