                                                                         “Mega-Churches” and Others

“Welcome to the world of ‘mega-churches,’” states The Economist. “There are now six American churches that attract more than

10,000 people every Sunday, and 35 that draw at least 5,000.” The First Baptist Church of Hammond,Indiana, U.S.A.,

claims to have the largest congregation—over 20,000 in attendance at its Sunday services. Nearly all the “mega-churches”

Are fundamentalist, believing in faith healing and speaking in tongues, or both. Pentecostals (and the like)

                                   Children have become a focal point.

The church in Hammond not only has a Sunday school but offers Little League baseball

and summer camp as well. “All you need to build a mega-church is a strong message of good and evil,

a gifted preacher with a talent for organization anda big auditorium,” notes The Economist.

“For bored, atomized suburbanites in the mid-west and the sunbelt, such churches

offer ready-made blessings.”With Web sites, TV and radio broadcasts and publishing operations,

                                         churches are looking more like businesses. 

The Term Mega church is the name given to a cluster of very large,

 Protestant congregations, that share several distinctive characteristics. These churches generally have:

2000 or more persons in attendance at weekly worship
A charismatic, authoritative senior minister 
A very active 7 day a week congregational community
A multitude of social and outreach ministries, 
and a complex differentiated organizational structure

Did Jesus’ Apostles Build “Mega-Churches” and Get Rich and Live in Big Homes--Open In Context it is printed below

                                              Jesus said Matthew 19:16-22

16 A man came to Jesus and asked, "Teacher, what good thing must I do to have life forever?" 17 Jesus answered, "Why do you ask me about what is good? Only God is good. But if you want to have life forever, obey the commands." 18 The man asked, "Which commands?" Jesus answered, "'You must not murder anyone, you must not do the sin of adultery, F267 you must not steal anything, you must not tell lies about other people, 19 you must honor (respect) your father and mother,' F268 and 'you must love other people the same as you love yourself.' F269 " 20 The young man said, "I have obeyed all these things. What else do I need?" 21 Jesus answered, "If you want to be perfect, then go and sell all the things you own. Give the money to the poor people. If you do this, you will have a rich treasure in heaven. Then come and follow me!"22

But when the man heard this, he was very sad. The man was very rich {and wanted to keep his money}.

So he left Jesus.

Jesus said I give you these powers freely. So help other people freely. Matt 10:8 - In Context

 Matthew 10:5-15

5 Jesus gave these twelve apostles F122 some orders. Then he sent them {to tell people about the kingdom}. Jesus said, "Don't go to the non-Jewish people. And don't go into any town where the Samaritans F123 live. 6 But go to the people of Israel (the Jews). They are like sheep that are lost. 7 When you go, tell them this: 'The kingdom of heaven is coming soon.' 8 Heal sick people. Give dead people life again. Heal those people that have leprosy. F124 Force demons F125 to leave people. I give you these powers freely. So help other people freely. 9 Don't carry any money with you--gold or silver or copper. 10 Don't carry a bag.

Take for your trip only the clothes and shoes you are wearing. Don't take a walking stick. A worker should be given the things he needs. 11 "When you enter a city or town, find some worthy person there and stay in his home until you leave. 12 When you enter that home say, 'Peace be with you.' 13 If the people in that home welcome you, then they are worthy of your peace. May they have the peace you wished them. But if the people don't welcome you, then they are not worthy of your peace. Take back the peace you wished for them. 14 And if a home or town refuses to welcome you or listen to you, then leave that place. Shake their dust off your feet. F126 15 I tell you the truth. On the judgment day it will be worse for that town than for the towns of Sodom and Gomorrah. F127
