    ...ill, homeless, poor and infirm etc, IN and OUT of such church. Christ commanded His church to reach out to folk thus identified , its actually one of his Commandments to the NT church: a requirement of and by members in the "churches of God." The Protestant churches [many] have despite not having all the truth and lacking knowledge claimed by the quote "one true church on earth" unquote. Nevertheless have an undeniable historical track record of following that Commandment of Christ: orphanages, hospitals, charities, trade and other schools for the poor, kitchens feeding the needy, clothing supplied, supplied, disaster needs met, refuge and succor as and when needed. Came about because Christians stepped out in faith and actuated these services. Gary, a worldwide organization which you may visit and which encourages a belief in God and may help you and those in similar feelings of isolation/ heartbreak is GROW. It is NOT a church and shouldn't clash with UCG teachings. Best Regards Danny...

    Some of us lifetime older bachelors ARE REALLY suffering form this. In a church predominantly couples and families, then, the breakup of WCG, and more and more splits, some of us older single men know a GRIEF FEW CAN UNDERSTAND, and our ISSUES have almost NEVER been addressed. When the churches have historically addressed singles, it is aimed at teens, and young people. The solitude and loneliness of some of us old bachelors, with no supportive families or relatives is legendary. I know we are to be servant, and i served for many years, even living in with a church quadriplegiic, giving him rides to church and other places for 6 years, and served other lonesome older bachelors many years, even though i have suffered depression and bipolar all my life. I also moved 2000 miles to go and care for my elderly very difficult and hostile father the last six years of his life. He died at 95 and 4 months in 2016. Some of us old bachelors have broken hearts big time, for having never been granted a special someone, and being in church congregations where there have seldom been any single women near our ages, and if there were any, not a match. Fwe understand.

    Gary. This is another form of "isolation," one which many, me included, can only imagine, having never experienced it. It is an example of how some folk can be alone, even in a crowd; the illnesses you mention surely exacerbate your situation. Some folk have gained help through joining volunteer organizations: Red Cross, Do Care and or others that may exist where you live. By various methods these organizations provide social and or material help to needy folk. Being thus involved can help the helper too: socializing with other helpers and the recipients of their efforts is rewarding to all concerned. Plus helpers meet, talk, share and socialize together which is usually therapeutic and rewarding. Training is usually associated with such volunteer work which means new skills for the real world and again: socialization with other participants. Some churches have outreach programs and groups of people such as yourself can be involved as either volunteers or recipients of a relevant [to them] program, some of which are mature age relevant. Some folk may ascertain the Godliness of a church/ congregation by it's attitude to the lonely,isolated, broken hearted.....

    Danny, I agree. I have done volunteer work at times, including helping with distribution of flood relief items once, and tornado victim donating. I have served like i said, a church quadriplegic, for years, and lived in to help several crippled older people. i am what is called a "codependent" as i serve way too much, and lose myself too much, not taking good enough care of me. Also, being a "highly sensitive person", and codependent. I have to leaqrn to be "good to myself", too for a change, and not feel guilty for it!! I even felt guilty when i dated women, and felt so sad, for the lonely men, when i was out with a date!! I felt that i did not deserve to date women, while other men were so lonely and hurting! So, i allowed friends, and other men, to move in on the women i liked, and take them away !! Not healthy. need to stand up for my legitimate need sometimes, too, and not hate myself, in toxic shame. Codependents read some scriptures, , and feel so guilty if they have fun, ,or have a blessing, that they self sabotage relationships, like i did, feeling that i did not deserve a girl friend or wife, and i let other guys take the initiative, and win the ladies . Sad.

    I see more accurately where you're coming from now Gary and thus educated ......also pray that God goes with you in all your life's dealings and things only getting better for you in future. Regards Danny.

    ....one of those churches, even those that are dread set cults and or worship on a Sunday, keep Xmas, Easter etc. A significant number I expect, are the isolated you refer to, battle fatigued they are, yet so are many, as you [accurately] suggest in UCG. Much "battle fatigue" IN the "churches of God" occurred IN those churches from the very interactions IN those churches between members/ members and the ministry. I realize this has been the reality in God's churches since inception of the NT church; Satan is relentless and the master counterfeiter. We need to pray "thy Kingdom come " and for Godly discernment.

    Ken....This is an accurate sermon I believe, it is Scripturally correct and the analogies hold true, the only possible way humans can thus live is by walking closely with their big brother and friend: Christ. There is no perfect minister or church in my experience and we all suffer from the same condition: being human! It often is self evident by example who are true and Godly ministers and the reverse hopefully holds equally true. Although historically in God's church it hasn't always [apparently] proven to be so recognized swiftly! Discernment surely is needed by "soldiers" in the subject matter of your sermon because Satan isn't just a "murderer and liar." He's also a master counterfeiter, this is evident from creation with Adam and Eve through into the NT church and into contemporary times. The history of the "churches of God." Includes Scriptural and modern church examples of those with discernment correctly identifying counterfeit ministers then being disfellowshipped, barred or regarded as unacceptable to and in the congregation. Many of these folk left the then or that church and tried other 'splinters,' offshoots or evolutionary versions thereof. Some stayed in ...
