We who preach the gospel must not think of ourselves as public relations agents sent to establish good will between Christ and the world. We must not imagine ourselves commissioned to make Christ acceptable to big business, the press, the world of sports or modern education. We are not diplomats but prophets, and our message is not a compromise but an ultimatum. A.W. Tozer
Therefore let God-inspired Scripture decide between us; and on whichever side be found doctrines in harmony with the word of God, in favor of that side will be cast the vote of truth. --Basil of Caesarea
Once you learn to discern, there's no going back. You will begin to spot the lie everywhere it appears.

I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has strengthened me, because He considered me faithful, putting me into service. 1 Timothy 1:12

I don't understand the point of this post. There are likely tens of thousands of things done in modern churches never done in the early church. So what? So long as practices aren't anti-Christian, I don't see a problem. So long as such practices and traditions don't supplant true Scriptural teaching, I don't see a problem.

This is another example of the foolishness and nonsense at Bethel Church, a bastion of heresy.

And it's not a matter of not being practiced in the early church, it's a matter of never before being practiced in church. The problem is that it is ridiculous.

How so? What does it hurt if it isn't contradicting Scripture? Is there some Scriptural admonition against establishing new traditions or forms of worship so long...again...as it doesn't supplant or conflict with Scriptural teaching? You'll note that most churches these days don't actually serve bread and wine during communion. Crackers/wafers and grape juice seems more and more common. They didn't do that in the early church. And before any church began serving wafers, it was never before practiced.

I'm probably as strict as you are with regard adhering to the teachings of Scripture. But some other "add-on" things are not problematic unless one can demonstrate how.

Marshall,

Take a look especially at the context here. These are false teacher who claim to be apostles! The claim to have God's authority to these things.

Jesse,
Did you see my comment about the context? This is Bethel church, hive of false apostles and false prophet, aberrant/heretical teaching abounding.
