Mammon-The worship of.jpg

The modern Church has become a social club which provides an emotional need innate in mankind as a gregarious creature. While what people see as a worship service often makes them feel better is it the same worship spoken of in the Bible?

People will have to find ways of providing emotional support in the gathering of Tens like the early Church but not at the sacrifice of true worship. Discovering what that true worship looks like is a part of seeking the kingdom of God and His righteousness.

So what is worship? READ


Fract10s-100sc.jpg
The most predominant form of government throughout history has been based on voluntary systems composed of a Network of what was sometimes called the "tens, hundreds, and thousands". Early Israel, the Teutons, Saxons, Lumbards and many others societies all followed this pattern including the early Church because Christ commanded it. This allowed them to provide a Daily ministration for the welfare of all early Christians through the practice Pure Religion which was the Corban of Christ which helped early Christians survive and thrive while the Imperial Cult of Rome declined and fell. It is important to understand that the Imperial Cult of Rome and the Corban of the Pharisees were welfare systems of Social Security and public welfare that makes the word of God to none effect. They also make the people merchandise, curse children with debt and entangle you again in the yoke of bondage and the elements of the world. The Way of Christ is your only salvation.


"Will history ask when reviewing our generation “What manner of men had lived in those days...who had so eagerly surrendered their sovereignty for a lie and a delusion? Why had they been so anxious to believe that the government could solve problems for them which had been pridefully solved, many times over, by their fathers? Had their characters become so weak and debased, so craven and emasculated, that offers of government dole had become more important than their liberty and their humanity? Had they not know that power delegated to the government becomes the club of tyrants? They must have known. They had their own history to remember, and the history of five thousand years. Yet, they had willingly and knowingly, with all this knowledge, declared themselves unfit to manage their own affairs and had placed their lives, which belonged to God only, in the hands of sinister men who had long plotted to enslave them, by wars, by "directives," by "emergencies." In the name of the American people, the American people had been made captive.” ― Taylor Caldwell, Devils Advocate, set in a dystopia where North America has become a Communist dictatorship.

"If plotters again destroy your Republic, they will do it by your greedy and ignorant assent, by your disregard of your neighbors' rights, by your apathy and your stupidity. " Taylor Caldwell, Devils Advocate

"The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers that it can bribe the public with the public's money." Alexis de Tocqueville


Paulromans13sw.jpg

The Greek word ἐξουσία in Romans 13 translated "power" means the "power" or "right to choose" which is the "liberty of choice" which was originally bestowed upon the individual by "nature and nature's God". You lose the liberty to choose by taking oaths which modern Christians do and Jesus and James said not to do. They lose access to rights of choice when they apply for benefits, by praying for the "wages of unrighteousness" from men who exercise authority. Polybius, Plutarch, John the Baptist and Jesus warned us about such foolishness and said not to do these things which unfortunately the modern Christians do habitually. Because of the covetous practices of socialist governments and their citizens which the old and new testaments tells you not to do, which again the modern Christians do regularly bt the early Church refused to do.

Seeking the kingdom of God involves Steps.

Seeking the kingdom of God and His righteousness involves Steps you must take for yourself. Those steps are a part of the striving Jesus commands his disciples to do.

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. read more about Steps.



The Bondage of Egypt is where a portion of your labor was employed by the government in exchange for a limited offer of benefits. God told us in Deuteronomy 17 to never return to the way of Egypt again but the people did under Herod and Rome. Jesus told us to think a different way and to seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. What is the rest of the story? Read more

I've read the article on Holy Matrimony vs Marriage by brother Gregory. My questions are,

If a man and woman is married by the state and not a Holy Matrimony under God, that pretty much means that if they have sex they are committing fornication, which is a sin?

Does the couple have to divorce under the state marriage and then have a Holy Matrimony under God to make it right with God? Read more

Asleep in the pew
People are being put to sleep by a thousand doctrines when the truth about the gospel is easy to understand if we only had eyes to see.

God is the same today and so is His plan for us. Unfortunately many mistake emotion for spiritual truth. Many have it wrong, The purpose of the Church ad the gospel of the kingdom is not to make you feel good but do good and seek righteousness.

I have read laws and the cases cited in their entirety and more schemes and strategies of patriots and freedom seekers over the last half century than I can remember.

I also know a list of people doing time in jail or lost everything they had with similar arguments.

If you end up in court people will probably get crucified.

The Way of God is not the ways of men...

The Levites and Pharisees were steeped in foolish rituals and false fables misunderstood by their spiritually unmoored interpretation of the Torah their pride and self-righteousness kept them from seeing the simplicity of the kingdom. They were not bearing the fruit because of their slothful neglect of charity or their covetous practices that were making the word of God to none effect. Read more about fables.
Do you think God is really concerned with people making breeches or underwear for their Levite ministers or is the Torah speaking through allegory and metaphor about something simple and profound?

And if so is there something modern ministers should understand and do while seeking the Kingdom of God and His righteousness.

What makes you think that you are the "we" and "us" that Paul was writing to in the Epistles that were saved by faith?

Is your faith real faith or just a strong delusion? Can you save yourself by saying you believe?

What is the evidence of your faith?

Have you received the love of the truth, that you might be saved? Read "we" and "us"


What is a key to liberty and why is it often hardest to find?

There are many keys to finding liberty but will you let them fit into your hearts and minds. Only the truth will set you free and the true nature of Christ is that truth. Do you have the character of Christ?

Are you gathering in his name? Read more


How do you ease into freedom?

Freedom is not easy and it certainly is not free. It requires humility to see and sacrifice to accept. It may even require special skills. Both Israel and the early church had to learn many things before they were ready to be set free by their deliver.

Many do not continue with Christ or Moses. Read more


 :

The Staff of life has always been a symbol of societies quest for freedom.

Neither bread nor liberty is ever free.

If to be forgiven you must forgive then to be free you must strive to set your neighbor free.

 : An intentional community is a planned community. What can we learn from Ancient communities? What was some of their secrets of success and their different approaches?

The members of an intentional community often hold common values which involve a social, political, religious, or spiritual vision. Those social values and ethics plus their faithful perseverance of the individual in their pursuit of theses Social Virtues predetermine the successes and failure in every community.

The Preparing you website has over 4500 pages and over 22,000 edits with almost a quarter of a million visits. There is over 200 registered users but only 10 who have done any editing in the last 30 days.

I have done the majority of that with over 248 actions this last month. I am very thankful for those who are assisting in this effort.

But where is everyone else?

The Law is spiritual. Why did Paul say in Romans 7:14 "For we know that the law is spiritual: but I am carnal, sold under sin." Do we have to keep the commandments? If we do not keep them what is it telling us about ourselves and our faith?

The law written by the Pharisees may be done away with but the law was not to be meant to be written on dead stone but upon living stones. The law was to be written on our hearts. How is that done?

How do we know when it is done?

, Bailing or bailing out. As fishermen of men we are all in the same boat.

When a fishing boat is taking on water that might sink the boat you can do one of two things.

The Journey of where you are going depends on where you are at which depends on where you are from but the key is what direction are you headed. Do you need to adjust the direction of your life?

Wasting time is what the guy with the one talent did by not investing his talent in profitable endeavors.

We have all been given the gift of life and some talent.

How are you using that gift for the Profit of others?

Christianity was called The Way because Christians were living by following that way taught by the prophets which included a vast network of ministers of small congregations. Read More

Out of Africa Daniel on the Africa group made a point that stirred something I wanted to share.

Many on the email groups are not a part of the network and they certainly are not in conformity with Christ, have not repented and are not saved.

They are under a strong delusion. read more


Other Dear Network

Overcoming our Addiction to sin. The gospel of the kingdom called us to seek the kingdom of heaven and the righteousness of God.

The righteousness of God requires that you love God enough to let the light and life of Christ into your hearts and and His truth into your minds but habits of thinking keep taking us astray... read more


Curing or healing all Cancers We have done a three hour show on Healing all cancers.
Physical, political, religious, social and Spiritual

Cancer "is a term used for diseases in which abnormal cells divide without control and are able to invade other tissues."

While the word cure "is defined relieve (a person or animal) of the symptoms of a disease or condition" the word heal means "to cause (a wound, injury, or person) to become sound or healthy again." So do you want to be cured or healed? Read more...




Legal marriage and alternative contracts Legal matrimony contracts

Thumb

Someone on Facebook in and argument about same sex marriage and the need for a marriage license with the state pointed out that there should be no need for the States permission. Some were sympathetic but said "but a 'legal' marriage comes with many benefits. Being able to see your dying spouse in the hospital, inheritance, child care, etc. I dig the sentiment, but the realities we face are a little different." Read more...


Congregations of Rebuke
Congregations of Loving Rebuke

People who do not love the truth will hesitate to speak the truth. And the truth is people who do not love their neighbor will not speak the truth to their neighbor. The early Church like Israel were an outspoken direct people. They were men of action and responsibility. They worked well together because they sought to serve the God of truth and they had no alternative but to work together because the only government, the only Welfare and Defense they had was a voluntary one.

Modern Christians gather to feel right or good. They have little or no Daily ministration and they think it is love if we just all get along. They shy away from real personal and social controversy and often make a big deal about minor hermeneutics, straining at gnats but often swallowing camels.

A Congregations of Love is a Congregations of Rebuke if our rebuke is born of love of God and our fellowman. ...Read more


Biting your neighbor

Christ came to Save others. The early church saved millions of lives during the decline and fall of the Roman Empire. That Church was doing what Christ said to do.

Biting one another is not something Christians would do but something only zombies do right?

We would not do that kind of cannibalistic practice or maybe we do but just do not want to admit it. Are werewolves, vampires and zombies real? To vampires he the meat of their fellowman when his blood is still in it.


The Peaceful Majority

Who are they and are they dangerous? Are they really peaceful or through their apathy actually the source of evil in the world?


Cure the problem not the symptom
Why are people trying to hide the evidence of sin rather than repenting and deal with the real problem which is their own heart and mind issues?


Why we gather

At the time when Jesus, who was the Christ, came preaching that the people should repent and seek the Kingdom of God and His righteousness people were making excuses about having to do other things first and Jesus called them dead. Have you been making excuses too? Read Why we gather.


How would we answer
If someone wanted to do a story on the people of the network and said "It’s all about the unique lifestyles and objectives or destinations or businesses of the [the people], and how their faith in God is leading them to do what they’re doing."

How would we answer them?

My answer might be something like this
