Wicked Shepherds.com and recommended reading
Here are some of the best books on the market today for anyone who has been, or is presently involved in an abusive church environment.  

For the individual who has broken free; for the person who is still trapped in the "system" and cannot escape; and for the actual abusers themselves who are caught up in their "authority gone wild," these  books will stir your soul.  They are excellent.  

You will not be disappointed.

Check them out at your local Christian book store, or they are available right now on amazon.com.  


(Amazon.com has probably the best price available anyway.  For your convenience, I placed the link for the books to go straight to amazon.  Just highlight your mouse over the book cover and "click.")

RECOMMENDED READING
No stone is left uncovered. A thorough historical survey of the first 300 years of church history and verse by verse studies of key chapters adds compelling evidence as to why tithing is a false teaching for today.  This book will help loosen the bonds of financial voo-doo that the many churches preach today.  It’s a book that your pastor will hate, but that you will love.

"The Primacy of Preaching"  ??

There is absolutely nothing whatsoever revealed in God's Word about the primacy and exaltation of a specialist who issues forth a monologue Sunday after Sunday, notwithstanding the literally myriads of messages to the contrary.

See and learn from the Scriptures the Truth.
The Primacy of Preaching
HOW and WHY do people who profess to be Christians get "going to church" from the Bible? This brief article will clearly answer that question and show, FROM THE BIBLE,why "going to church" is UNbiblical.

WORD OF ADMONITION:

Ignorance is a prerequisite for those who support local church institutionalism in all of its various forms, because their theology is blatantly at odds with what 
the Scriptures actually say!

THIS WEEK’S CHURCH 
CATCHPHRASE

DEVOTION

1) Making church attendance first place in your life; 2) Coming to church is coming to Jesus.

Devotion to your local church is devotion to Christ!”
Question: Why does real Biblical Truth take so much searching, so much effort, and so much digging to uncover?
Answer: Because “professional hirelings” have invested so much training, so much bullying, so much indoctrination, and so much money in burying it.
THIS WEEK'S BIBLE VERSE

For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

"The Pastoral Office"
Does the (mistranslated) Scripture, “obey them that have the rule over you” include their theology?
LIE OF THE WEEK  
“The fear of God means that Christ is present in our corporate worship.”
Houses for God

Stephen, before being stoned to death said, “The Most High dwells not in temples made with hands.” (Acts 7:48) Of course, the world, that is the “church world,” hasn’t heeded this at all. They still go on making temples, sanctuaries, and houses for God! Why? Well, think about it. 

It’s much more convenient if they can put God somewhere off in a house where He can stay alone and people can come to Him, maybe once or twice a year at Easter and Christmas, or perhaps even once a week on Sunday’s. But, He’s not wanted anywhere else. That’s the whole point. 

Not in the social life; not in the business life, and even not in the home. He has no place there. So a building is made for Him, and it is called “The House of God,” and people go to “the house of God” to pay Him a visit and then, they just hope He stays there.
