explanation on what a Cell or 'Class' is can be found in this other thread I made to simply talk about them http://www.debate.org...

He I want to actually see if we can make one here on DDO. it takes at least 10 christian members preferably. although 12 like the apostles would be preferred.

If I get at least 10 people to sign up and you are one of them I will send you all a group PM were we can talk about what our different church pastors preached on that week and you know how we can apply to lessons from it to life. The DDO christian Cell will also be an non-judgmental environment were we can confess any of our sins we have committed that week IF we want to, though such confessions will not be mandatory. What will be mandatory is those who sign up must be prepared to keep private such confessions among this group, to offer a loving forgiving environment were constructive suggestions on how to avoid or resist the temptations to that sin in the future, or just remind the christian brother or sister that there sins have been forgiven thanks to the power of the cross.

I have a few other idea's on how 10 or 12 of us could make use of this Cell for something more like a bible study, but for now to just see if this works it will be for us to talk about our preachers sermons and how to apply it to our life and the challenges to our spiritual walk that the last week has presented for us. I will probably send out the PM on Monday's, and it will be a new PM each week, discussion in any PM may continue for as long as any of us like until the new week's PM in sent.

So here is a sign up list you can copy and paste from.....

1) Marauder
2)
3)
4)
5)
6)
7)
8)
9)
10)
11)
12)

in the unlikely event a lot more than 12 are interested, we will form either just one large 'Cell' or make 2 separate ones.

May as well call yourself NAMBLA.

I really have no cell or class, I am simply Christian, my class is Bible believer.

Hah!

Seriously though, you can't just go around comparing Christian groups to sinister organisations of manipulative paedophiles.

Yeah, save that for the Catholics.

You could have a problem with about any name I choose if I did divide to call it something other than a Cell. I didn't want to call it s Class partly because we think of a class as something like a course you take in school, and partly because Adam Hamilton has it called a Cell at his church of the Resurrection in Topeka Kansas where he successfully employs the Wesleyan Class system. So I'm going to stick with Cell. I didn't make up the system so I'm going to stick with preexisting names for it.

Yeah, that would be unfair to the paedophiles.

fishing for a few more to sign up. or maybe at least a few Christians to actually talk about why they are not interested as opposed to atheist looking for ways to mock the name of the thing with absolutely nothing to say about the actual concept of the Cell/Class system itself.

this is a good idea people, and when I show you how well it works maybe you will want to try starting one in your own church.

then the next great awakening will begin.

We could begin and just add those who want to join later.

I will begin with the small group we already have signed up but I will wait until next Monday for the first offical PM I send for it. Next Sunday at church be prepared to remember the topic of pastors sermon so you can talk about it the next day here on DDO.

I have a slight advantage in that respect because even if I don't pay attention real good I can still talk about it in detail a day later because my pastor usually post her sermons on her blog 'walking beside the boat'.

I do not trust most churches today and I have chosen Pastors online that I feel teaches the real Word. I have many groups that are engaged with Pastors. So, I also have messages online that I can give to the group.

My problem isn't with the content of the organization. It's just a fact about the implications of the name.

Ever hear of a terrorist cell?

Jihadist cell?

It opens them up to criticism and mockery the same way naming yourself "NAMBLA" would.

your an idiot. everyone knows 'the great awakening' is the name they give for several time periods in history when there has been large revivals in the christian faith across the country. you might as well be trying to paint John Wesley as a terrorist leader in his own time which is inherently ridiculous.

seriously this is just a sign up page for Christians to sign up on if there interested in giving John Wesley and Adam Hamilton's methods for spiritual growth a try. It's not relevant to atheist and contrary to your beliefs we don't care what you think about it. stop posting on this page, your coming close to crossing the line between 'quick heckle for my own amusement' to 'troll'.
