I find a lot of church practices wrong and I always feel I have joined the wrong family, and fear my salvation will be affected in the end. Is it right for selling and buying to go on in or around the church premise during programs? In Jesus' day he,
"...found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting,... he drove them all out of the temple... And said unto them...Take these things hence; make not my Father’s house an house of merchandise." (John 2:14-16).
It is obvious that what is happening today is just in another form, modernised when journals, bibles, church newspapers etc are always being displayed. We get guest speakers who set up their books, cds and tapes to be sold after their sermon. I dont want to talk much but please, someone tell me if we are safe.
