Going to church should have a positive impact on those who are seeking The Almighty. The Chief Shepherd, Jesus, has set up a congregation (world wide) with under-shepherds for each localized congregation with a "service" that includes a variety of leader-servants (five-fold ministry) and servant leaders called deacons or deaconesses. The protocol includes input by the congregation as a whole. This is also very positive for the benefit of the "local body (parts)." It had a very positive effect upon the growth of each congregation and for evangelization. It does not appear to have survived time. There are some very obvious symptoms, indicating the body of The Almighty is fatally sick. When Jesus cleaned out the Temple of uncleanness, the symptom exposed the disease which Jesus surgically removed. It is a very positive thing when you find the problem and correct it. Are the remnant up to it? Cliff Tucker was saved at the age of 10. But his experiences started even before that with a vision or dream of Jesus entering a church service. At thirteen he wandered away from Christianity and eventually getting involved in sorcery (drugs) and further away from the Almighty. After enlisting into the Army, he married, and he went to Germany, followed by his wife. In Germany, using the Bible as his guide he, knowingly, became involved in the occult. After returning to his Savior at twenty-six, he took the verse to heart, ."study to show yourself approved." Though he has slipped a (more than) few times he has been involved in his continuing study of the Word of GOD.
