The real origin of the word 'Church' - the Demise of 'Congregation'
This vid is really interesting and timely because there's lot of threads I've been reading at the moment by different denomination Christians chest beating about their 'brand'.

I'm pretty much 'self-schooled' although I know someone's been leading me to different places on the web to teach me, blessed be His name.

People don't need to get told by a man or woman who God is, you can learn who He is from Him if you are patient, willing to seek knowledge and wisdom from His Word and learn to listen to that 'still little voice' as many describe it. Once you learn to listen it's a great thing.

Matt 5:17 Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled.

Psalm 119:165 Great peace have they which love thy law: and nothing shall offend them.

Amos 8:11  Behold, the days come, saith the Lord GOD, that I will send a famine in the land, not a famine of bread, nor a thirst for water, but of hearing the words of the LORD:

Ruth 1:1 Now it came to pass in the days when the judges ruled, that there was a famine in the land.

No time to watch the vid but the origin of the word "church" has to do with Circe and circles. The circle being a center of early worship ritual.

Also the modern day name "Kirk" is derived from these origins.

Bingo. I'm not suggesting that we have to go as far as not uttering the name (!), but the idea of a fellowship/ congregation with an equal exchange of knowledge of God makes so much more sense than an institution where priests rack up a good living from service fees and tell everyone what they should believe.

In the time of the Judges, God was King of Israel and that should never have changed cool2

That was very interesting, I didn't know the origin of the word church.

But, if you dig into everything, so much of our world has pagan origins, the calendar, the days of the week, even wedding rings. How to escape all of it? I don't think it's possible because pagans were such a huge part of early civilization.
