    • I'll be praying for Randy. 
    • So then, according to your statement who do you think the churches we see in the new testament were started by if they were not started by the first Church at Jerusalem?
    • I like lambs liver, in our supermarkets it seems to be the only choice, except perhaps chicken, liver now and again. Lambs liver is fairly cheap and makes a meal.  But they are not really butchers.  I asked last week if they disd marrow bones and the "butcher"  said "No, we just get the meat in." I can remember when we were first married, seeing all the carcases hanging in the burtcher shop and rabbits and chickens hanging in the window.  We don't get that now.  Health and Safety, I presume.
    • Thank you so much for the concern! I will pass it on to Randy. He didn't fall on his knees, thankfully. I'm glad you are doing better.
    • Brother Bobby Of course you will not find the words, "church begets church" in Scripture, those were my words to describe a process whereby churches are established. You said you "don't find Scripture that affirms "church begets church."  That is because there is not Scripture that specifically says those words. But the concept is plainly laid out in Scripture. If you only consider the missionary journey's of The Apostle Paul you can easily see this concept in action.   Ac 15:36  And some days after Paul said unto Barnabas, Let us go again and visit our brethren in every city where we have preached the word of the Lord, and see how they do.   37 And Barnabas determined to take with them John, whose surname was Mark.   38 But Paul thought not good to take him with them, who departed from them from Pamphylia, and went not with them to the work.   39 And the contention was so sharp between them, that they departed asunder one from the other: and so Barnabas took Mark, and sailed unto Cyprus;   40 And Paul chose Silas, and departed, being recommended by the brethren unto the grace of God.   41 And he went through Syria and Cilicia, confirming the churches. In verse 36 we see Paul wanting to go back to the churches that he and Barnabas had established. In verse 40 we see him being "recommended" by the brethren. This is the church authority to operate under the authority of his home church.  Acts 11:22 Then tidings of these things came unto the ears of the church which was in Jerusalem: and they sent forth Barnabas, that he should go as far as Antioch.   23 Who, when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord.   24 For he was a good man, and full of the Holy Ghost and of faith: and much people was added unto the Lord.  Here we see the church at Jerusalem sending Barnabas to Antioch to plant a church out of those that had believed.
