  1. This is deplorable. The ecclesiology is severely defective and stewardship of resources sub-biblical. The notion that this would create “a spiritual center” has more in common with Islam than it does Christianity.

    Just think of how these resources could be used to alleviate poverty in Dallas, plant health, gospel-centered church, and address deep spiritual and physical needs. Lord have mercy.

    In the video presentation, I’m wondering if Isaiah really was thinking about physical structures being “rebuilt” and “modernized” when he mentions “walls being rebuilt” and buildings being “rebuilt” from the “ruins”? More specifically, was Iasaih prophesying about church buildings in north America? We must be careful how we use scripture to gain the support of the flock for a vision that may or may not be from God.

    I think Jason’s comment above hit the nail on the head:

    “In the video presentation, I’m wondering if Isaiah really was thinking about physical structures being “rebuilt” and “modernized” when he mentions “walls being rebuilt” and buildings being “rebuilt” from the “ruins”?”

    It amazes me how folks can twist Scripture to suit there own mindset. Sad, so very sad.
