Combining RR-BB.com into RaptureForums.com

Because it has become insanely difficult to manage a bulletin board these days, the managers of Rapture Ready and Rapture Forums have decided to join our boards together under a software program that is easier to manage. Because RF has their database operating well under an Enforo license, we decided to make Rapture Forums the focal point of a consolidation. Since Chris, the owner of RF, has long experience in running a forum, he can better manage the problems that come with this technology.

If you do not have an account at https://www.raptureforums.com/forums/, please sign up. By the end of November, it will become the forward address of RR-BB.com

  • Church of the Wells versus Lakewood Church

    Does anyone have familiarity or information concerning Church of the Wells? Besides what's on their website?

    http://www.thechurchofwells.com/

    It would appear.....we have an isolationist Christian sect going up against a large seeker service/emergent church (yes...this is Joel Osteen's church in Houston).

    HOUSTON - Six people were arrested at Lakewood Church Sunday after heckling Pastor Joel Osteen while he was preaching, according to Houston Police.

    The individuals are from Wells, Texas and are associated with The Church of Wells.

    Casey Eaglin was at Sunday's 11 a.m. service and just a few seats away from one of the protesters.

    "He jumped up with his bible and started screaming 'Shame on you Joel, shame on you Joel' and Joel kind of just repeated scripture and they just escorted them out," said Eaglin.

    He added, "I was terrified for a quick second there. After the first guy, I thought oh it's just a random heckler, but then you start seeing the second, the third."

    Lakewood Church told KHOU 11 News, a number of their volunteer ushers are also law enforcement officials. Those officials are apparently armed during the services so that they can react to anything like what happened Sunday.

    Eaglin said he's thankful for the quick response of the Lakewood Church security.

    "For a second there I started thinking about the church shooting that happened and I was thinking 'Oh God something bad is about to happen' but they were real quick," he said.

    The individuals who caused the disturbance were escorted out of the church and were arrested. They are being charged with criminal trespassing, police said.
    My first thought.....

          Church of Wells

          This church came into my radar a couple of weeks ago. Friends of mine have a neighbor who has moved to Texas to join this church over a year ago. The neighbor's daughter is home collecting her belongs (and being escorted by another couple from the church) to also join this church, she's been there for about 6 months. In an effort to help my friends I have done some research on this organization.

          There is a website called bewarethechurchofwells (.com) That gives a lot of information as well as testimonies (anonymously given) concerning this group.

          I'm posting in case there is anyone looking for information about them.

          Beware!

          Please pray for my friend's family who are caught up in this and may not know how to get out! Worse yet, would be true followers of this!

              Yes, they don't leave her alone for my friends to try to talk to her and persuade her to not go back. They have done some repairs on her father's home and we believe they will be renting the place. The question I wonder is whether the rent money will go to the Church of Wells. These are not young people either. The father is probably in his 60's and the daughter is fully grown (I don't know her age).
