David Robertson: The real problem with God TV is not Rory Alec's 'moral failure'Rich Novek's article which I believe helps clarify what we are NOT believing properly as the world church
IN Your Body?
For you have been bought with a price: therefore Glorify God IN YOUR BODY. I Corinthians 6:20
We need to move beyond the status quo interpretation of this verse, which the modern day church has made all about honoring God WITH our physical body. And they have done this IN much the same way as the focus of the temple of the Holy Spirit (which you are) has become all about the outward physical form, rather than seeing it as the place where the God of all Grace NOW lives and moves and has His being IN and through us...for others! (Acts 17:28)
So what exactly does it mean to glorify God IN YOUR BODY? Does it mean a regular exercise program? Does it mean abstaining from alcohol, cigarettes or drugs? Does it mean proper bed rest and healthy eating habits? Is that what Paul means here when He talks about honoring God...IN YOUR BODY?
For physical training is of some value, but godliness has value for ALL THINGS, holding promise for both the present life and the life to come. I Timothy 4:8
And the only REAL godliness that exists is allowing the only Godly One to live His Godly Life IN and through us according to His perfect Godly plan!
Jesus said to them, “Very truly I tell you, UNLESS YOU EAT THE FLESH OF THE SON OF MAN AND DRINK HIS BLOOD, YOU HAVE NO LIFE IN YOU. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood has eternal Life, and I will raise them up at the last day. For my flesh is real food and my blood is real drink. Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood remains IN me, and I IN them. Just as the living Father sent me and I live because of the Father, so the one who feeds on me will live because of me. This is the bread that came down from heaven. Your ancestors ate manna and died, but whoever feeds on this bread will live forever.” He said this while teaching IN the synagogue IN Capernaum.
On hearing it, many of His disciples said, “THIS IS A HARD SAYING, WHO CAN ACCEPT IT?" John 6:53-60
IN the same way that "eating of His body and drinking His blood" cannot be understood with the "self preserving" natural mind that is set on the flesh, and is always at enmity with the Mind of the Spirit, we have to know glorifying God IN OUR BODY can only be about One thing. That One thing is seeing ourselves as the vessel, temple, branch, and lamp of God, mere containers, earthen vessels... who IN our weakness and inability to do anything apart from Christ, NOW contain Him as the excellency of God IN His fullness.
But how is it possible to KNOW Him as your only REAL Life when you still claim ownership to a Life independent of Him? Because if that is the case, you wont have any other choice but to see this as a hard saying, IN the same way as the Ones who deserted Jesus In the above passage IN John.
If It's only possible for God to resurrect that which is dead, then why is it so many believers today continue to hold onto a life independent of God that they somehow still see as being their own?
Honor God IN YOUR BODY, not with your body, and the only way the believer is able to honor God IN his or her body is to see their body as the dwelling place of God alone! Anything less then that is the self preserving flesh pretending to be REAL Spirit life, which can only result IN the following...
Anyone who rejected the law of Moses died without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. How much more severely do you think someone deserves to be punished who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, who has treated as an unholy thing the Blood of the Covenant that sanctified (saved) them, and who has insulted the Spirit of Grace? Hebrews 10:28-29

No better Xray of how ministries work than our response to God TV. I haven't asked Rich Novek point blank what he feels about Rory and Wendy's split. But I'd guess like me he'd tend to go down into the crevices of WHY things like this happen . More in a bit,,,,in other words more prophetic and less of a human feel. Here is an equally valid pastor's heart on the same issue....and I think this is great too:" It is also true that GOD TV is not to everyone's liking. The channel has its own identity, it has carved out a broadcasting niche for itself that some people do enjoy, and in that niche the station will make mistakes because it is run by human beings, and a trait of us humans is that errors and blunders are a part of what we do. If GOD TV is one end of the spectrum then the BBC's Songs of Praise may be at the other. If we don't like the buoyant atmosphere of GOD TV's programming we can move along the line of radio and TV stations until we come to one that suits our nature. We may also feel inclined to pray for the people who are on a learning curve in their broadcasting ministry."Paul Poulton - Cross Rythms
Having had Rory and Wendy come to my house rather bizarrely just before they knew about the Channel...early 1994 I think....they found me quite odd...because it was clear to them I had been kind of sidelined and they thought this really really odd. So I tried to explain to them that God was raising up all three of the Christian Growth stages again of 1 John 2....and that the first two levels weren't sufficient. I told them I was working on the third level.We walked down to the Emsworth beach for an hour or so as I began to share. I also played them my track Joel 2, which was written simultaneously to Paul Cain's prophecy and is equally as disputed. Wendy felt it was like something her own father would have prophesied.
As good an idea as is God Channel and Christian TV in general there is something like David's new cart about it. Just as the new cart IS NOT the designated vehicle for the Ark of the Covenant and the glory of God see David in 1 Samuel, and it came a cropper at the threshing floor, which got a bit uneven......so, several times now, Sattellite TV has come a cropper. And pastors come croppers too.
The OFFICIALLY designated vehicle for God's glory are human Temples of believers of Galatians 2:20 joined together in brokenness as the church of the Living God...."Joined by that which every joint....WHEN WORKING PROPERLY...supplies." ie not Pyramid pastors. Not two people trying to run TV stations. Now , in pioneering situations God overlooks things. Jesus was allowed to raise 12 disciples singlehandedly....BUT the NORMAL VEHICLE NOW is God's selfbuilding church. The fivefold ministry are something like ignition burners who impart the blueprint....then like at a firework display, light the blue touch paper and let the display run itself. The 2 millennia old bogus pagan form of ministry with pyramids built around single individuals is largely the cause of the half built towers that Richard Dawkins spends so long writing about. So from a prophetic point of view...not a condemnatory point of view...it's always a question of looking at the bigger picture and thinking like David did....God, how do you really want to build so that nobody dies...or here falls off any wagons?
