"Many megachurches provide intentional paths for new persons to move into deeper levels of the faith."
Luke 17:5 And the apostles said unto the Lord, Increase our faith. Luke 17:6 And the Lord said, If ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you."
Reckon these Megachurch folks can toss trees into the sea all the time.
Rom 12:3 For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according AS GOD HATH DEALT to every man THE MEASURE OF FAITH."
Perhaps the Magachurches think that God's "measure" is insufficient for their purposes.
"High-level EPA bureaucrats commonly support the leftist environmentalist beliefs of these groups, as do a great many of the career employees of the agency. They look to serve the leftist groups, not their employers."
Bureaucrats like Obama are Liberal socialists. When bureaucrats are given authority usually from that kind of government, then they take over and mindless public sector mentality is born.
Here in the UK we have public sector mentality running all our institutions for example colleges. A friend was telling me about these bureaucrats making decisions about the purchase of expensive computer programs. They had'nt a clue as to which one was really applicable and what cost to expect - So the company flogging the program ripped them off, but the bureaucrats remained "big stupid grin" happy.
Bureaucracy is a leaven which will gradually leaven the whole lump and government and institutions will eventually bankrupt the national taxpayer, destroying the nation.
The old soviet union countries are an example of bureaucracy running and breaking the nation. People end up in positions for which they are not qualified making bad decisions. It is called "incompetence."
