19 Oct The REAL REASONS Why I Don’t Go to Church Anymore

 

So where do you go to church?

 

If you’re a Christian, you’ve probably been asked this question a million times because it’s part of the everyday Christian lingo. In fact, for a lot of people, it seems like both “going to church” and “being a Christian” go hand-in-hand.

 

But I’ve also heard a lot of Christians say that “we are the church”?

 

So which is it?

 

Is “church” a place you go to?
Or is “church” … people?

 

Check out my latest video.

 

Isn’t it interesting that the place many religious folks call a “spiritual hospital” (church) for the “spiritually sick,” usually ends up being a place where everyone looks healthy? So instead of being a place where we can “be ourselves,” the church usually ends up being a place where we pretend everything is okay.

Pope_Francis

 

 

What do you believe?

 

Wait a minute, let me ask that question again. What do you really believe?

 

In other words, have you ever claimed to “believe” in a particular idea or creed, yet in your heart, you really didn’t believe?

 

Or have you ever tried to believe in something because you were supposed to believe in it, yet in your mind, it didn’t make any sense to you at all?

 

IN THIS EPISODE, YOU’LL HEAR:

 

• The senior project on “Christianity” that changed my life
• Some possible reasons why we believe
• Whether or not we choose our beliefs
• How to recognize our blind spots
• How our environment influences our beliefs?
• Two powerful factors that impact a person’s belief
• Is a God who demands you to “believe or burn” being unfair?

06 Oct NEWSLETTER june-september 2012

Hello friends,

 

We really appreciate you for following our ministry and supporting us prayerfully and financially time and time again. All your love has encouraged us to keep spreading the Gospel.

 

If you’ve read our last newsletter, we’d like to keep you updated quarterly. This quarter we had events that took place from June to September.

 

On the first week of June, we had a healing training in Laguna that took 10 hours of teaching (including breaks). This particular group that held this gathering never really practiced healing before. That being the case, they were so open to learn. During the teaching, Joshua challenged a lot of the beliefs of healing and addressed every question raised by the listeners. By the end of the day, those who needed healing learned how to heal themselves and each other effectively.

 

 

Later on, Joshua was invited to speak at the New Generation Church who were into the radical message of God’s grace. It was the church’s 4th anniversary and they were honored to have Joshua share and have us celebrate with them.

 

On the first Sunday of July, Joshua had the opportunity to speak at Crossway –a Grace Communion Church in Ortigas. This church has an interesting journey. If you’d know their history, you’d see how far they’ve come. We have this Sunday teaching up on Youtube as a playlist and free to download on iTunes as “The Adoption and Inclusion of Humanity.” And also check out “Real Faith for Health and Finances.”

This church had a fine number of seniors who were so open and enthusiastic. After the service was done, they further discussed what Joshua had shared with them. It was rare to see seniors so open in a fun discussion like this. We were so encouraged.

Because of the teaching, we were invited again to share at another Grace Communion Church in Sta. Rosa. A few people from Crossway followed to listen to Joshua speak again. At the end of the service, many were blessed and spent some time with us elsewhere and discussed more on the topic preached that day. It was a delight to share our hearts with each other.

In August, we had a series of gatherings with different church groups to share the message of grace. A lot of thoughts and questions were exchanged to challenge.  Aside from those gatherings, we also had the opportunity to help with a relief org during the flood that hit the Philippines not too long ago. You can read about it here.

 

On September, we were invited to share the Gospel in Cebu for 5 days. The gathering we had with our host’s family, friends and church group went on till midnight almost everyday. There was so much to talk about and discuss. On one of the days, our host held a healing training for Joshua to teach. It went on for 6 hours! By the end of the trip, we were so happy to have known our hosts and the wonderful people in Cebu.

 

Right after Cebu, a church in Makati called Light of The World, invited Joshua to speak on a Thursday and Sunday.  On Thursday, many were “rocked” by the message of grace. This message was so overwhelming for many–yet encouraging. After the service, the leaders sat down with us and brought up the questions they had. On Sunday, Joshua did a healing training that went on for several hours. Many who were present got healed and were also empowered to heal others as well.

 

During the time between these events, we would meet up with people and simply share life together. We would also be requested to different homes to pray for the sick. It seems as though, whenever we’re out with people, not a day goes by where we don’t share and live the gospel with others.

 

We also have more good news! We’ll be taking our ministry to the US next month (November 2012). We’ll be based in California.

 

If you’d like to connect with us and have us come speak at your church, conference or event, please contact us here.
If you’d like to support our ministry financially you may do so here.

 

Again, thank you for all your love and support.

 

In Christ,

 

Josh and Remy
