Currently if a church needs a pastor - a church will advertise on a web site - whether it is denominational, on its own web site, or some other "looking for pastor" web page.
In the recent past - a church would contact a denominational leader and seek out potential candidates - most of whom were currently pastors of other churches. He would come preach once or twice- attend a church dinner to answer questions - and then voted on by the church.
Have you ever heard of a pastor going to a...
What are the best sources for learning about early church doctrine, and how they viewed the scriptures? Any free grace material on the early church?

I do not know what all these churches teach but I just met a believer from the church here in Denver who is as sound as they get. Affirmed the essentials of the faith and did not deny the trinity nor the divine Christ. Affirmed the authority of all the Bible, the reality of Hell, salvation by grace, justification by faith, and such.
I know that they have some false teachings in the WOF message but what I cannot say is that all attenders in these churches are following another gospel.
In a thread about people leaving churches I stated that sometimes that is because a given local body or a denomination as a whole has become rotten. Still believe that.
Also noticed a few who instantly see themselves able to judge that those folks are nonbelievers.
But I've also witnessed some exciting things in our town and area in general.
They get called bush Baptists because they live and meet out in the bush. Or mountain Methodists. Or long distance Lutherans. Or unassembled...

How do we go about it?
The people I speak of are not thoughtless about religion; they think a good deal about it. They are not ignorant of religion; they know the outlines of it pretty well. But their great defect is that they are not "rooted and grounded" in their faith. Too often they have picked up their knowledge second-hand, from being in religious families, or from being...
In 1925 during the Scopes "Monkey" Trials, the ACLU defense attorney, Clarence Darrow pulled an odd stunt and actually put the lead prosecuting attorney, William Jennings Bryan, on the witness stand.
What happened next (and I've read the entire transcript last year getting ready for a Genesis 1-3 Bible study), was nothing short of an attack on Byran's Christian beliefs. Here's the whole transcript: Beliefnet News - Top Religious...
Two volumes of the Pillar New Testament Commentaries (ed. D. A. Carson) authored by Peter O'Brien (Ephesians and Hebrews) are being recalled and destroyed by the publisher, as is O'Brien's 1990 New International Philippians commentary:
Eerdmans Statement on Three New Testament Commentaries : Eerdmans
In Romans 4 and Ephesians 2 there are only two possible alternatives a the source of faith.
Romans 4 contrasts grace versus works and concludes that justification is by grace and then says Abraham was justified by faith while denying he was justified by works and furthermore claiming justificaiton is by faith "without works."
However, if justifying faith is "of works" then Paul is contradicting himself when says justification is "without works" when in fact it is by the work of faith. In...
