I joined the GRC around 1967 along with my parents when I was about 15 when we moved to Geelong from east gippsland.
My father was invited to attend a meeting after getting his hair cut at a barber shop in Geelong by a young guy from GRC (sorry I can't remember his name).
Dad was on the invalid pension at the time and after joining the GRC he was healed and went back to full time work.
Over the next 10 years did all the usual stuff and attended all the meetings and young peoples, along with the camps at xmas.
Mum and dad had my younger sister while still there but dad was growing restful and prefered going fishing on the weekends than attending a meeting.
I was told off quite a few times by NH and left for few months before finally being told not to return.
The only thing I did miss was the sport I never got to play(never had time) meet quite a lot of great guys and gals one of who I was very fond off but was told I could'nt go with her as I was'nt strong enough in the lord.
After being kicked out mum and dad soon left the GRC too as they hated how they were suspose to have nothing to do with me and no one at the GRC spoke to my parents about me or asked them how I was going.
I just could'nt stand Noel and his attitude much prefered Jack Clay before they split , there was never any grey areas it was all black and white no misstakes allowed tho I think it did depend on how much money you brought into the assembly.
Well thats the end of my story.

Dear wally, i don't think your way was right. Yes, you were young back then and you lacked the discipline to follow the Lord. I don't think a Revival church can bend the rules for you. This is not a country club for your social needs. I'm trying to let you understand that your way will never survive in this kind of church. Anyway, try to reconcile yourself to the Lord if you think you are ready. Salvation is between you and God. The church cannot guarantee your salvation. Being a disciple is to be disciplined.

I don't know that man though I have met him twice or thrice in my prev church.

'need discipline to follow the Lord.' That is salvation by works, eg. 'If I can discipline myself to the point where I am with out sin, Jesus will find me acceptable'. Try instead to thank God, for his grace that stops you from sinning more then you already do, and his mercy that stops you from receiving the wrath of God when you do sin. 
To Wally 3218, I pray that God the farther returns you to the Flock that he wants you to be in. may God give you Peace to you and your family. God Bless.

Burkers.
