Sunday Morning: How Was Church?

For those who attended church this morning - care to share how it went? Prayers,praises,the Word,anything and everything. Someone could actually get something meaningful from your worship experience.

Even if you missed church and sang the gospel songs playing on your radio,share share share.

As for me,i attended a Catholic mass this morning.Waz ok,sermon was mainly about humility.Kinda hard to be humble these days,lol. Missed having a lively praise session tho. Mass was a bit dull solemn without it,everyone looking so serious,no smiling faces.Otherwise,twaz all good. Share yours.

Church was wow learnt the steps to blessing:

1. Obedience-- to the word of God ( Deut 28:1-3)

2. Forgiveness -Have a forgiving heart, God has forgiven us so we are to forgive others.

3. Vision

4. Knowledge

5. Persistence- believe and walk in Gods ways no matter the circumstance, what ever ur hands find to do, do so far is of

God

6. Sowing-- what ever u sow u shall reap

Church was ok. as usual. True worship only comes from the heart. dats the only way u can enjoy these things. I love my parish. mass is only 2 hrs. n its not boring.

it all depends on the priest and how he runs the church.

we cant have more than 5 thanksgivings per sunday, and after communion announcements are very brief. We xtians shouldnt be criticizing one another.

keep the faith y'all.

Church was nice as usual.

But the question should be "What Do you learn in Church today? A lot of us just to go church to see the charming pastor, hear the eloquent preacher, listen to the funny priest, dance the christianalised pop music (in disguised name of Worship Song), meet and chat with friends etc. But we always miss the nitty-gritty of sunday service.

We go to church to have father-son communion / fellowship with God. We receive caution, commendation, warning, discipline, instructions, commandments, encouragement, grace from God, not just for razzmatazz like in so many churches (especially pentecostals).

As for me this past sunday, our pastor strictly cautioned us against being haughty, pompous, egocentric, but rather to abase, humble ourselves and not seeking or vying for positions.

James Cardinal Gibbons, The Faith of our Fathers, 88th ed., pp. 89.

"But you may read the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and you will not find a single line authorizing the sanctification of Sunday. The Scriptures enforce the religious observance of Saturday, a day which we never sanctify."

Stephen Keenan, A Doctrinal Catechism 3rd ed., p. 174.

"Question: Have you any other way of proving that the Church has power to institute festivals of precept?

"Answer: Had she not such power, she could not have done that in which all modern religionists agree with her-she could not have substituted the observance of Sunday, the first day of the week, for the observance of Saturday, the seventh day, a change for which there is no Scriptural authority."

John Laux, A Course in Religion for Catholic High Schools and Academies (1 936), vol. 1, P. 51.

"Some theologians have held that God likewise directly determined the Sunday as the day of worship in the New Law, that He Himself has explicitly substituted the Sunday for the Sabbath. But this theory is now entirely abandoned. It is now commonly held that God simply gave His Church the power to set aside whatever day or days she would deem suitable as Holy Days. The Church chose Sunday, the first day of the week, and in the course of time added other days as holy days."

Daniel Ferres, ed., Manual of Christian Doctrine (1916), p.67.

"Question: How prove you that the Church hath power to command feasts and holy days?

"Answer. By the very act of changing the Sabbath into Sunday, which Protestants allow of, and therefore they fondly contradict themselves, by keeping Sunday strictly, and breaking most other feasts commanded by the same Church.'

James Cardinal Gibbons, Archbishop of Baltimore (1877-1921), in a signed letter.

"Is Saturday the seventh day according to the Bible and the Ten Commandments? I answer yes. Is Sunday the first day of the week and did the Church change the seventh day -Saturday - for Sunday, the first day? I answer yes . Did Christ change the day'? I answer no!

"Faithfully yours, J. Card. Gibbons"

I stand corrected. No church criticisms.

Just that when one talks about how sunday service went,the good,bad and ugly come up. I don't think anybody's out to criticize,they're just saying how they felt about their experiences and giving their opinions,thats all. Honesty's a virtue,right?

Thread's still for sharing your sunday worship experience and how you spent sunday morning. No church beefs.

i totally agree with you, not really understood why pastors shout wen they have mic al to dem self, al dey got to do tell technical team to up d volume, maybe it is a technique to wake people up or rouse people attentions,

but whichever way i think d less shouting and displaying, d easier it is to meditate nd remember al dat has been said, becos to be honest once d shout starts i tend to swith off becos d next tin im tellin myself is dat im nt deaf

Lmfao. I've heard pastors say such crap. It's hilarious how common sense and logic escapes some people when they are listening to these people. Trying to fill some sort of void.

I know of one service went to where the pastor was talking about pastors who compromise the messages of the Bible to please their members esp the ones who "give the most" and he went on about how some pastor was preaching against immorality and a congregation of the church got together and decided to kick him out because his being immorality offended them blah blah, im was just rolling mys eyes and thinki9ng of which kain "congregation" be this, Hoq can you try to make me believe someone was kicked out for preachig against immorality, why not go IN DEPTH of what he was supposedly preaching against and HOW he was doing this instead of trying tohave us believe that people et kicke out for preaching against "evil", abegi

Let me explain. The preaching is basically the same old poo. If it is not about "Giving", it's something that has to do with "faith" or hell or the devil or demons, or your relation in the village witch hunting you, or speaking in tongues. I could tell you all the pastor will say as soon as he announces the topic.

But hey the pastor cracked me up last sunday in church. I swear this is a true story according to the pastor;

Some dudes (supposed missionaries), were in this war torn community where they were killing peeps on the regular (like rwanda). So on this fateful day, the pastor in the story and his sidekick were out for a walk when they stumbled upon a massacre in progress. According to the preacher, there were dead bodies spewn all over the place. So the killers came upon them (the missionaries) and asked them to get on their knees and do somethnig (I didnt quite hear this part). But the next thing the killers started shooting at the missionaries and (In the exact words of the preacher) "when the smoke form the gun shots cleared, they saw both missionaries jumping around speaking in tongues and praying with not even a single bullet wound on any of them". (At this point I shouted "Odeshi", laughed myself to my satisfaction, picked up my bible and went out for a beer. I had heard enough.) And you should have seen the entire church clapping and screaming praise the lord.

In fact last sunday should be called sunday of a thousand laughs.

What a bunch of suckers. Smoke from gunshots??

I had a good time in the presence of the Lord.

It was a thanksgiving service,we also had the opportunity to

learn that we need to give THANKS TO GOD when others around

us are favoured because it is their own season.

Failure to do this could prevent our own season from coming.

The ability to control wrong emotions such as anger,jealousy and resentment

when our subordinates in the office are promoted,neighbours,friends,etc are elevated or favoured was the watchword.

HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEK!

I was equally in church too.

guess which church? Christ Embassy!

My church pastor remains a pastor beyond compare.

He electrifies the church once on the podium. He electrifies the service before his message.

He remainded us of whom we are as xtians and how must pray aright for expected answers.

eg;- God created us in his image,so as he is so are we in this world. Thus we are above situations

prevalent in this world., by his stripes we are healed so a xtian cannot be sick etc.

I love going to church.

It was superb. What a joy to be in the presence of God. There was no dull moment from charge, to praise and worship, testimonies, to the word it was all wonderful that i have to stay for second service. the word was unique first service THE POWER OF PRAISE, second service THE HELP OF GOD.

As for me i don't know what else i will be doing on sunday morning than being in ZION a place where kings and Queens are made, a place of encounter, a place where u meet with papa GOD.

sweet heavenly songs, great earth-shaking prayer time, and I was also privileged by the pastor to stand before God's people and teach them the secrets of 'blogging for Christ' as different from 'blogging for money'.

I am fulfilled to teach freely the revelational exploits of the web to God's children.

i dont understand what chrisoml meant by the 'same poo' where do you worship? that word is absurd to come from

a christian and im very sure you are a sunday sunday church goer. Well i had a great time in my church and my

pastor ministered about the person of the holy spirit. He is the third person of the Godhead and without the holy

spirit you cannot leave an effective christian life. You must have a relationship with the holy spirit to leave

a victorious life. read John 14:26, acts 1:8, mark 15:16-17

You are very funny. how come from all that was said today by ur pastor none did interest U except to remember d only same old thing that you've heard over and over.

Well, my Sunday was WOW. had a great time in the church.

I woke up early in the morning feeling so confused and having some funny thought running to and fro on my mind.

But before I left church, my pastor has seriously dealt with them by helping me to remember whom I am in the Lord and am now feeling better.

The same poo you get every sunday.

First they sing some worship songs to get you in the mood,

Then the pastor comes and gives some mortivational speeches backed with some bible passages,

And then they pary about everything you can think of on earth,

Oh! and ofcourse they collect your money I mean offering, tithe, building offering, seed faith offering, burnt sacrifice offering, e.t.c offering

then they send you home reminding you of the daily services.

Thread's just for sharing how your sunday morning went,the message you got from church,how the service was, etc.Or if you didn't go,its still ok to share how you spent the morning,whether you plan to attend a service later or not. Someone who missed church could read the message another person got today and be blessed by it.

Nothing judgmental about it.
