A typical view can be found here, from a church website about 7 miles from where I live.
Nice sermon. Agree 99%.
>The early church was probably the only successful Socialist experiment!
Is it not just as "socialist" when we send money and aid to people in Africa or wherever?
The early church couldn't have been that successful of a socialist experiment because you find Paul has to keep raising funds to support the church at Jerusalem. They gave everything away now they were all poor.
Actually, it's likely that the socialist experiment failed. After about the sixth chapter of Acts, we never hear about it again.
I suspect that there were too many Ananias and Sapphira types!
Good article. It seems that the Anglican & Presby views on this are perhaps closer than I thought.
PS -- Thanks for putting the distance in miles (km) as we have no idea what that means. Is that our particular church?
I suppose there's a bit more of the Real Presence concept - but that's fairly typically Anglican. No, it's not my 'local' and is less evangelical than the Anglican church where my family and I worship, which is here and some three miles from where we live. There are Anglican churches closer to us, two of which are within walking distance: St John's and St Peter's , the latter of which dates from 681AD, but they're more 'Middle of the Road' (some here would probably call them 'liberal'), like St Peter's in Bishops Waltham to which I linked in the OP, than ours.
