  • Seven Mistakes Every Church Should Avoid
    Whether you agree with any or all of the "mistakes" mentioned in this article, it is certainly worth the read and can serve as a helpful springboard for discussion on the biblical/theological/historical nature of the Church.
  • Why men have stopped singing in church
    A fascinating discussion is unfolding at regarding the disappearance of singing (especially by men) in most churches with a contemporary bent. Although I consider worship to be much more holistic and diverse than what the author is focused on, the discussion there is nonetheless a worthwhile read.
  • The Anglican-Episcopal Divide Widens Further
    NT Wright offers a honest and somewhat heavy-hearted perspective regarding The Episcopal Church (TEC) in the U.S., and their decision to further formalize their decision to appoint to all orders of ministry, persons in active same-sex relationships. This marks a clear break with the rest of the Anglican Communion.
  • "I Am Second"- Incredible Personal Stories
    Personal testimony stories are a dime-a-dozen on the internet. YouTube and a plethora of other sites offer them. But you will NEVER find striking personal stories about life and loss and struggle and victory and faith like you will encounter at This is a resource site you MUST visit for yourself and then bookmark.

Almost all door to door evangelists haven't got a clue about how to be saved.They have a gracealone or a faithalone false gospel that can't save anyone. They believe they have the Holy Spirit, but have never been baptized into Christ for the remission of their sins and the gift of the Holy Spirit.
In other words, they are zealous, but lost and ignorant. It is by God's providential intervention that they make so few "converts". For their converts are hellbound!

"Seraphim, I guess I don't see door-to-door evangelism as "walking the walk". Feeding the poor, clothing the homeless, reaching out to widows, getting involved in the lives of the marginalized -- these are the "real" doors that we should be knocking on, and thereby earning the opportunities to share the good news about Jesus with people, and inviting them to join us in the journey of discipleship."

Chris, I think you miss the point. God accepts us by what we believe and not by what we do. God has instituted the preaching of his word as the only method of bringing salvation to his people. The problem is that you do not trust the power of God's word, you don't believe that the gospel has any power to not only save people from the penalty of sin (death), but also from the power of sin (it produces good works in believers, i.e. the fruit of the spirit of those that believe the gospel).
