Why does Midway teach believers that the keeping God's commandments, has nothing to do with ones Salvation, when Jesus, the one they call "Lord", clearly refutes this teaching in
Matthew 19:16-17?

My antie sent me one of the programs from this church a few weeks back, I noticed the budget since the new contemporary servives started has dropped in half from when this church once had REAL church and not a party on sunday morning.I used to live in Fairfield plantation and went there.It was a blessing to leave and you felt the spirit of GOd and were filled with it, now its as if its a social gathering for those who want to rub shoulders.I was very surprised from the first time I visited to the past time I was there.It was a totally differant crowd of people,disco lights and mirrored balls filled the song service, and all the musicians were gone that once made a joyful noise to the Lord.I also noticed, when they left, they took their offering with them.I can't blame them AT ALL.I wonder what church in the area now has these very talented musicians? When I visit at christmas, I would love to attend a great church that is worshipping God and making a joyful onto the Lord, and not banging on pots and pans

Can you be a little more specific, Maybe by using the Bible as your source of reference to base your comments.

Please let me know if you find one, They are few and far between, but I must admit the last time I visted MMBC I did feel the presence of God. They are stll doing some good works that please God or he would have vacated a long time ago.

I'm refering to your wacked out idea that this is being teached.
It is always been taught at Midway that...
Romans 3:23 All have sinned and fall Short of the Glory of God.
John 14:6 Jesus said "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me".
Ephesians 2:8 For it is by Grace you have been saved, through faith and this not from your works or yourselves, it is the gift of God.

Should I continue?

Colossians 2:16
Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day.

If you don't like the style of music or service please go elsewhere. 2 peoples opinion on this post do not represent the spirit of God that is still felt every weekend at Midway. Please move on. I'm sure you can find something negative to say about something else.

Okay, so you recognize that Jesus is the Way and the Truth, now with this knowledge why do you not believe what the Author of Eternal Salvation, Jesus Christ, is telling the Rich young man in Mat;19;17, is the truth?
By your own teachings at MMBC, you would say that Jesus Christ, if he taught in your church today, he would be called a teacher of works, and not of Grace.
Another example of your false teaching is your teaching that when one is "Saved" they are no longer slaves to sin, even though they continue to sin. Read what Jesus said in John 8:34 and you will find your teachings, are opposed to what the Lord taught. ANTI means opposed to, as in ANTI-CHRISt. Read what Peter warned about in 2nd Peter 3:15-16. Peter is talking about you, also read what John wrote in 1st John. How many warnings will it take before you folks open your eyes to what is clearly written. Please don't be angry with me, I am simply trying to open your eyes, and Never pull a knife on one who has been trained to use the Sword, the Gospels of Jesus Christ.Your arguement is with him, not with me. How can you say you believe him to be the Son of God, when your very teachings make him a Liar? Can the Son of God also be a Liar? Obviously not, even your Pastor would look foolish trying to answer my questions using your doctrine.

Let me see if I understand you correctly, if someone tells you that your teachings are wrong, they are wrong and you are Wright? Have you ever looked in the Yellow Pages and seen how thousands 0f doctrines there are? There is only one Truth and only one doctrine and it comes from the Gospels of Jesus Christ. If the churches taught this ONE doctrine would there be a reason for all these doctrines? We would have the church of Atlanta or the church of Douglasville or the Church of Villa Rica and Not all these doctrines. Since there Are all these doctrines and only one real doctrine, where do these doctrines come from if not the wisdom of men? We are meant to be ONE as God is ONE with Jesus. You are following men not Jesus Christ. Think about it.
My answers are out of Love, your answers are not. Please remember this in the future, you are a child of God.

Big Question, Where do you find these being Midway's teachings. I am not the most well versed member by far but I don't know why you are taging Midway with this. Is there a perfect church out there? A perfect denomination?
We are born of sin, no one except Jesus himself got it all right. I have said before, I'm just a servant, a sinner saved by grace.

A sinner? Saved means that you are born of God, of his blood.
Look what the Bibles definition of born again is in 1st John 3:9-10 and then tell me if you are saved. "Whosoever is born of God will not sin" Is John a Liar also? Now read John 8:34-35 and you will find that the Lord himself backs what John says. I am not here to argue but to teach, for that is what God has made me. As far as tagging MMBC, I only tag you for God is still in you church, but if they continue down this road God will leave as he has in so many churches I have visited. Stop following doctrines and listen to what the Spirit says.

All you need to do to gauge the quaality of a Christian church is watch how everyone acts when they are leaving. If it's a rolling mad house of rude drivers and disorganization, you have a faux Christian church. True Christians don't take advantage of others. Ever!

John 15:19
If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.

- As a Christian, you should never choose to be or act like the world.

1 John 2:15
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

-Attention to the other most well versed member by far MMBC Member.
You should never agree to be like the world in your speech, deed, or worship. Playing the worldly "Rock Style" music to reach the mainstream is WRONG and you are in error for defending this.

ATTN most well versed MMBC member by far: Verse 16 is the verse you continually defend your improper worship theology. Consider ready further.

Colossians 2:16-19

Colossians 2:16 Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day.

ATTN most well versed MMBC member by far: Before justifying your worship theology, consider reading the next 3 verses below your favorite verse Colossians 2:16

Colossians 2:17 These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ.

Colossians 2:18 Do not let anyone who delights in false humility and the worship of angels disqualify you for the prize. Such a person goes into great detail about what he has seen, and his unspiritual mind puffs him up with idle notions.

Colossians 2:19 He has lost connection with the Head, from whom the whole body, supported and held together by its ligaments and sinews, grows as God causes it to grow.

ATTN most well versed MMBC member by far: Your continued support of worldly worship and lack of humility in your responses are a frown on all Christianity and I ask you to reconsider your beliefs that seem to defend a wordily temperament and mindset. I ask you to examined your heart before continuing to display the ambitions and desires that follows the world.

If you don't believe the way midway thanks, your not a growing mature christian, and you need to go elsewhere if oyu want to worship.Allow the few chosen ones in the church to tell you what to believe and if you discount their words, you need move on , asn your not mature.But if oyu drink the koolaid, just keep putting oyur money in the plate and let them spend it as they want or see fit.You have no sayso about what is bought, who is paid what, or the property they buy with the offering moneys.
