Of the 250,000 Protestant churches in America, 200,000 are either stagnant (with no growth) or declining. That is 80% of the churches in America and maybe the one you attend, if you attend at all. 4,000 churches close their doors every single year. Oct 26, 2013
For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.
Within the word of God Psalms 1 details three (3) biblical people.
These three can also be found in Romans, the story of the beggar,
and of course three crosses, to name a few.
1. The Ungodly (never baptized in the public) go's directly into hell at death.
2. The Sinner (publically baptized/signatory to the covenant)
also called unholy and or unrighteous.
The sinner will sleep until judgment, only those who were working on holiness will be
spared as servants, and they'll never see God the Father, only Jesus.
3. The Righteous, the holy, the sanctified, all three are one and the same.
Sinners have only the law or the word of God.
The obedient sinner will pass from sinner to righteous after many, many years.
