thought - on churches merging

It is easier and more commonplace for companies and corporations to merge together - but it is rare for churches to do so.

Every few blocks in America, you can see a church building. Why so many? Did God call all of them to start churches? I dont think so. When He does, it is usually among unreached peoples.

These churches on every block are usually branch offices of a head office, that compete with other head offices.

Is it clashing egos and flesh that prevent more mergers especially when doctrines are similar?
Here is a juwo on when our church merged with another.

"You are obviously a moron. You had better hope that your god is more merciful than you are. You are a hateful bigot."

To Anonymous:
Your post shows that *you* are the hateful bigot. Why are you hiding behind "Anonymous"?

Here is what Jesus said:

"Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you."

Matthew 5:11-12

You claim you know God but you are obviously a hateful dirty scumbag. God does not love people like you. You will find out at the end of your life that God will spit out those who hate into eternal damnation. I so relish the thought of you burning for all eternity in hell.

You are a terrible, hateful person and God will judge you harshly for your hatred and stupidity. I order you to stop writing about God on your blog, since you know nothing about it at all. At the end of your life you will find that God detests hateful people like you and will cast you into the lake of fire where you will spend eternity weeping and gnashing your teeth.
