Listen to the Inner Teacher! He speaks within your heart. He is the Holy Spirit, the presence of God in your soul, the inner Light. He is calling you to follow and obey Him daily. Don’t refuse His call.
When church is set up to feature one man, week after week, as “the preacher” or “the speaker,” it tends to limit people’s ability to hear the Inner Teacher and to make them dependent on a mere human being.
The Bible puts it this way: “As for you, the anointing you received from Him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But as His anointing teaches you about all things and as that anointing is real, not counterfeit—just as it has taught you, remain in Him.” –1 John 2:27.
Experience the Inner Teacher at The Salvation Army Berry Street in Nashville, Tennessee, where ordinary people show and tell what God has done (instead of a one-man, weekly sermon): Sunday’s @ 10:45 am., 225 Berry Street, 37207.
Atheism doubts and denies a Creator, while putting great faith in the ability of nothing to produce everything.
Atheism is the ultimate personification — bestowing on nothing the abilities of an intelligent being — the capacity to create, to bring order out of disorder; to engineer amazing mechanisms; and to develop rationality, reason, and logic.
A theism is a belief in one God as the Creator of the universe. The three main theisms are Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. They have many branches. Here are some quotes about theism:
“This most beautiful system of the sun, planets and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being.” –Isaac Newton
“There is no indisputable proof for the big bang,” said Hollus. “And there is none for evolution. And yet you accept those. Why hold the question of whether there is a creator to a higher standard?” –Robert Jay Sawyer, Calculating God
“Scientists are slowly waking up to an inconvenient truth – the universe looks suspiciously like a fix. The issue concerns the very laws of nature themselves. For 40 years, physicists and cosmologists have been quietly collecting examples of all too convenient “coincidences” and special features in the underlying laws of the universe that seem to be necessary in order for life, and hence conscious beings, to exist. Change any one of them and the consequences would be lethal. Fred Hoyle, the distinguished cosmologist, once said it was as if “a super-intellect has monkeyed with physics”. –Paul Davies
Theist and atheist: the fight between them is as to whether God shall be called God or shall have some other name.” –Samuel Butler

Every church is full of gifts that God has given — apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors, and teachers (see Eph. 4:11). There is not just one pastor in a church and none of the other gifts. There are many of these five-fold ministries in a church.
These gifts are not titles or official offices, but practical functions necessary in every church. Apostles are “sent ones” — people who are sent by God on special assignments. Has God brought some “sent ones” to your church? Prophets are those who boldly speak the truth in love. Evangelists are those who share the Gospel with non-believers. Pastors are people who help other people grow spiritually by maintaining a loving relationship with them. Teachers are people who help others learn how to live out their faith. If you think through the people in your church, you will see that your church is indeed full of people who operate in these gifts. Perhaps they should be free to function in their gifts during the Sunday morning worship service.
These gifts should be in operation every time the church meets. Come see these gifts in action at The Salvation Army Berry Street, 225 Berry St., Nashville, Tennessee, 32707 on Sundays at 10:45 am.
