    The question today is are we worshiping God at church or worshiping our church.
    If you would never be willing to walk away from your denomination or non-denomination, you are worshiping a church. Worshiping a church is a form of idolatry.
    If your church dumped the Hollywood stagecraft, the dimming of the house lights, the blow your mind worship band and hit parade song selection, the overhead projector with high tech features would you leave or stay.
    Is your church confusing actively serving in your church with serving Jesus and him only? Are they linking church membership with being in Christ?
    Do you often applaud after the singing? Are applauding the band or reverently worshiping Jesus?
    Are you and your children being discipled or given quickly forgotten sermons? do they teach apologetics from the pulpit? Do they denounce false teachers and teaching from the pulpit? it is the flock that is to witness and make disciples not the church Sunday service. The church Sunday service is to edify to teach and to train the flock for service.
    How much time is given to loving to praying for to encouraging one another one on one?

  2. Karen,
    You are right that the Bible is never incorrect, but unfortunately, Ellen G. White was many many times even though most SDA’s consider her even higher and more esteemed than a prophet.

    Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to everyone. Lighthouse trails is doing just that. David, you have reminded me of many things that I should be doing. My prayer life has grown since the Coronavirus has come on the scene. The Lord Jesus told us that his coming would be as in the days of Noah. Days of Violence and Corruption. He also told his disciples only my Father in Heaven knows the day of His return. We do not look for signs we look for Him. Reading the Bible is very important. The Bible is our sword against false teachers. Which world am I living for? One day that last living stone will be put in place. The wise man built his house upon the Rock. Our blessed hope is His coming for for us. If you are not saved by the blood of the Lamb trust Him today. For God so Loved the world that He gave His Only Begotten Son that whosoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.

    Just a little thought on your reference to Ellen White’s statement on Jesus having older brothers.

    “His brothers, as the sons of Joseph were called, sided with the rabbis. They insisted that the traditions must be heeded, as if they were the requirements of God…. His strict obedience to the law of God they condemned as stubbornness. They were surprised at the knowledge and wisdom He showed in answering the rabbis. They knew that He had not received instruction from the wise men, yet they could not but see that He was an instructor to them. They recognized that His education was of a higher type than their own. The Desire of Ages, 86.” [book written by Ellen G. White]

    Remember that Joseph was older than Mary and she was a virgin so they could not be her children and that these children Joseph already had WERE still Jesus siblings. The Bible is never incorrect. We just need to study a little deeper. Thank you for listening.
