I drew this sketch of a tiny community church [of a not real church to avoid anyone being persecuted because of it] a few days ago, then re-painted it today. I am posting it here today because there has been such a pervasive attempt to silence the Christian church and the followers of JESUS by the Obama administration and groups like the American Library Association, that it seems to me it is time to post public support of the Church that JESUS established. This is a simple idea, a church with stained glass windows that do not show images in keeping with the word of GOD in Exodus chapter 20, and with crosses that do not have graven images of JESUS on them, because JESUS rose from the dead! . This sketch is intended to represent a Baptist church in a little community. I painted this with acrylic and brushes and signed it with acrylic, and photographed it several times; and posted it here today 13th April 2016 at 1:50pm. Copyrighted. I, Gloria Poole /gloriapoole, own all rights to thus blog collectively as a unit and individually as posts and content. Also, I am including some of the Bible verses about the church so those who really have no idea what a Christian church is all about, can educate themselves.
I remind you os this verse because it is relevant to the debate of whether U S citizens have the liberty to worship GOD PUBLICLY [they do, more on that later.] :
"Blessed is the nation whose GOD is THE LORD, and the people whom HE hath chosen for HIS own inheritance. " Psalm 33: 12
" O send out THY light and THY truth: let them lead me ; let them bring me unto THY holy hill, and to THY tabernacles; then will I go unto the altar of GOD, unto GOD my exceeding joy; yea! Upon the harp will I praise THEE, O GOD my GOD." Psalm 43:3-4
JESUS said, " and I say also unto thee, 'that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. " Matthew 16:18,KJV
"...that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of GOD, which is the Church of THE LIVING GOD, the pillar and ground of truth. " I Timothy 3:15, KJV
"for the husband is head of the wife, even as Christ is head of the church; and HE is The Saviour of the body." Ephesians 5: 23. KJV
JESUS saith, " he that hath an ear let him hear what The Spirit saith unto the churches: he that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death. " Revelation 2: 11 And for further research on the church:
JESUS said, "because thou hast kept The Word of my patience, I will also keep thee from the hour of temptation which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly; hold that fast which thou hast that no man take thy crown. Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of My GOD, and he shall go no more out, and I will write upon him The Name of My GOD, which is new Jerusalem, which comth down out of heaven from my GOD; and I will write pun him M Y new name. " Revelation 3: 10-12
JESUS said, "..but that which ye have already, hold fast till I come, and he that overcometh and keepeth My works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations; and he shall rule over them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers, even as I received of My FATHER. And I will give him The Morning Star. he that hath an ear, let him hear what The Spirit saith unto the churches. " Revelation 2: 25-29
Also for those wanting to know more about the duties and functions of Christian churches:
How to resolve conflicts : Matthew 18:15-17, KJV
Who should be a bishop: I Timothy 3:1-13, KJV
Also, I have categorized many of the bible verses into easy to follow sequence of how to get to heaven and posted them on another gospel-sharing blog of mine at:
Now, back to the statement I made that U S citizens do have the liberty to worship GOD in a church, in their homes, in public, in fact anywhere any time, I quote the First amendment to the U S Constitution:
Amendment I. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.
