Glory to God in the highest. And on earth peace to men of good will. We praise You. We bless You. We adore you. We glorify You. We give You thanks for Your great glory. O Lord God, heavenly King, God the Father almighty. O Lord Jesus Christ, the Only-begotten Son. O Lord God, Lamb of God, Son of the Father: you Who take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us. You Who take away the sins of the world, receive our prayer. You Who sit at the right hand of the Father, have mercy on us. For you alone are holy. You alone are the Lord. You alone, O Jesus Christ, are most high. Together with the Holy Spirit in the glory of God the Father. Amen.

What do you do in your worship service for 1 hour? Maybe sing something and then sit on your butt for 40 minutes listening to a man talk.

A "low church" protestant can go to Church for their entire life and not once say a prayer or sing or participate in any way. Do nothing but sit down and listen. I think I remember they stand for some songs. Don't remember why but maybe to stretch their legs before the 'man' talks.

Some might holler amen, dance around and make mutterings but not in a Baptist Church.

You can do that watch that on TV.

Me neither, but I could if I wanted to. Or any other language in the World.

Remember it is the Universal Church.

Your universe is the Christ Chapel Bible Church in Ft Worth and giving some money for some missionaries.

Are there in any Ft Worth Bible Churches in Angola, Africa or in Quatar?

Up until just a few centuries ago there were no places for people to sit in churches. They stood except when kneeling. It was not until the prot. reformation came along and folks had to listen to boring sermons for an hour or so and do little else that pews were added in their churches. Wasn't long until the idea of parking your butt spread into Catholic churches. Even today you will rarely find permanent seating in churches and cathedrals past a certain age. You almost never find seats of any kind in Greek Orthodox churches and their liturgies go on for hours and hours.

One things for sure Catholics and Anglicans unlike most prots do very little sitting at church. It's up and down and kneeling a lot. And I've never heard a Latin Mass either except on TV. Dominus vobiscum!

So you are saying you don't engage in rituals on Sunday? BULL! I've often wondered why, given that so much documentation about early Christian worship in the 2nd and 3rd centuries exists why the CofC insists on patterning their liturgical practices after the Baptist church? The interiors of CofC worship spaces even look identical to those of Baptists. The CofC even ignores the hymns and songs from that earliest time in favor of those written by Baptists, Methodists, Presbyterians, Anglicans, and even (shudder) Catholics.'Tis a puzzlement.

So you don't belong to a Bible Church in Ft Worth. YOU belong to the Christ for the Nations Institute Church.

Why do mislead people by not telling the Truth. You don't belong to a Bible Church.

So if you go to a Christ for the Nations Institute Church in Africa, the Pastor there teaches the same thing as your CNIC Church in Dallas.

So Dennis Lindsay is the head of your Church. Does he have authority over all 12,000 Churchs? Do you call him Bishop?

Mark, how many times do I have to tell you-I am ex-coc but not ex christian. there are many good coc's. I was never in a good one and I guess you were not either.

In my opinion the old time coc's were more like catholics than baptist. Both teach works for salvation.

We all teach and believe the same doctrine. I do not know Dennis Lindsay. Do you know a catholic priest named James Reilly? Does he teach the same things you do?

I am not ordained but he should be teaching what the church teaches. If I go to his church the worhip service will be exactly like the church I go to.

I do have a catholic family living down the street from me, but they seldom ever leave home on sunday- doubt they go. They never answer their door-bill collectors hound them. I offered to help him remove a dead tree but never heard back from him.

Yeah them Catholics are weird. Possibly they go to the Saturday evening vigil (same as Sunday) but it's really none of your business. Maybe they like dead trees. Maybe they don't like the local parish church. I don't. It's full of illegal aliens and has a first generation Vietnamese priest. It's also packed with tacky 1960's plaster statues and has a crappy organ and organist.
