Pentecostal and apostolic dating and marriage
Now, having grown up Apostolic Pentecostal I wasn’t aware that people believed differently about God than I had always been taught, but when they said this I thought, – Apostolic Pentecostals believe that anybody who does not follow the plan of salvation that they do is not saved. With all these things together, it only made sense that I left the Apostolic Pentecostal church. I looked into several religions: Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism, agnosticism (not much to learn about that one), once I was even invited to join a group of people in going to the desert in Texas to find UFOs and try and contact extraterrestrials (you think I’m kidding but I’m not. I had known what it was like to stand in God’s presence. I had seen people get the Holy Ghost with the initial evidence of speaking in tongues. Ok, so I had it settled that Jesus is God, no doubt about it.~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Now that you know the reasons I left, I find it only fair that I give the reasons I CAME BACK: A year after I left the church I started a downward spiral of depression. I questioned if God even existed (for if He did, why did He allow bad things to happen? Thank God I had enough sense to cut those people off immediately after the invite). I had been baptized in Jesus name and remembered the feeling when I came up out of the water. But now I was faced with the reality that there were many denominations out there–many churches full of people who love God and whom God loves. , I thought, so I knew I had to get into the Bible and find out what it really says so I could find a church that preaches what the Bible actually says.Sadly, many churches don’t teach what the Apostles did. And that is why I came back to an Apostolic Pentecostal church. A form of human courtship consisting of social activities done by two persons with the aim of each assessing the other's suitability as a partner in an intimate relationship or as a spouse.
Galatians 1:8 says, “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.” Apostolic Pentecostals are called Apostolic Pentecostals because they follow the teachings of the Apostles and know that what happened on the Day of Pentecost still happens today.Adam must have seen all the pairs and would have thought about his realationship to them and must have said, "this one is different from me and must have given a name lion and so on.......". God will bring before us many type of beautiful men or women before us to see whether we say no to them all and wait for the Lord, or will say this will fit me and will settle for a less than complete relationship with some one who will not exactly fit our very nature and desire.Because Adam gave names and waited for God to intervene in his life inspite of seeing all the beautiful pairs, God did an emergency operation with a supernatural anasthesia given to Adam in order to take out a rib out of him and make a pair that is comparable to himself .However, my family members pointed out to me that for someone to say you have to follow what this verse says in order to be saved is ludicrous; “God loves everybody and wants everybody to be saved,” they said.And I reasoned, – I later heard from another person, after I had already left the Apostolic Pentecostal church, that a problem with them is that they reject the trinity.
