Fifty years ago, Billy Graham predicted that a time would come when millions of Christians would reject the institutional church. It would appear that this time has come to pass. For every church-going Christian in the UK, there are two who have given up attending church altogether, while in the US we find growing numbers of ‘Dones’ – Bible-believing Christians who are ‘done with church’.

The subsequent actions of these church exiles are many and varied: some try to regroup in a variety of forms, whilst others give up on fellowship altogether. Those that attempt to ‘do church right’ – including those groups that attempt to model themselves on biblical patterns – often end up looking very much the same as the churches from which they have fled, repeating the same fundamental errors. This being the case, is there any hope for the increasing numbers of believers who, disillusioned with church as they know it, are searching for authentic Christian community?

The author maintains that true body life can only happen when we come to recognise that we cannot equate the Body of Christ with ‘The Church’ because such a comparison is flawed at a fundamental level. The way we perceive the ekklesia, he argues, is far removed from the way it was perceived by the first Christians, and more importantly, it is light years away from what Jesus meant concerning it.

In support of this argument, one only has to make a relatively brief survey of the New Testament in order to realise that most of the features and practices traditionally associated with ‘church’ cannot actually be found there. The author goes on to present a more in-depth study of church history in order to identify how we arrived at the erroneous model we accept as normative today, and he considers whether the enemy has pulled off a coup of the greatest magnitude – one which has crippled the body of Christ for most of its existence. He goes on to pose the crucial question:

In what could be the greatest irony of all, is it possible that Church itself is not biblical?

This would certainly go a long way in explaining why so many Christians are spiritually dissatisfied; it would also explain why the church is increasingly viewed as irrelevant by those outside it. In the meantime, we are in a war, the scale and intensity of which of us fully understands or appreciates and as a result, the church’s ancient structures are crumbling; the old order is gradually being swept away, with large sections of church-as-a-thing-in-itself looking set to end, not with a bang but a whimper.

All is not lost, however. We need to remember Jesus’ proclamation: ‘I will build my ekklesia, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it’. Despite the ferocious attacks that Satan has launched against the body of Christ down the centuries, God’s people will prevail. The author suggests that there is reason to hope that a growing ragtag army – of a kind not seen since the early Christians prevailed against the might of Rome – is slowly but surely coalescing into a fighting force, one that will rattle the gates of Hell.

(Personal Prayer Book, 1522)In I Corinthians 15, he explains that Christ will reign until He puts all things under Him, including Death, and delivers His Kingdom to the Father, and thus God becomes All in AllIts well within the bounds of traditional Christian orthodoxyRemember, it is for FREEDOM that Christ has set us free, therefore, do not entangle yourself with a yoke of subservience to the Law! (Galatians 5:1)

 

He boldly asserts that once we rightly understand the genuine family nature of the body of Christ then we will immediately know Who the Head of the family is, who the elders are, what they are supposed to do, who has authority, and who does notRay Smith This is an absolutely fantastic article regarding the subject of the biblical tithe in comparison to todays popular doctrineWe also embrace the history of Christianity and our part in itMany Christians, and Catholics alike, do not realize that Constantine was himself a sun worshiperpeace Luke says: August 17, 2010 at 1:31 pm If everybody did then my Lord and Saviour is a liar&US Christians control TRILLIONS in assets while at any given time 200,000,000 Brothers and Sisters starveOr maybe its analogous to how the Hippie counter-culture in the 60s and 70s was just the other side of the coin to white, affluent AmericaHis was, indeed, the first "mega-church" in American history

 

I think, with very few exceptions, emerging church people have shifted into, or closer toward, another quadrant of Tickles rose, which means they are going around in circles& This is not necessarily a bad thing, if it is a movement of conscience and not of fashionThe Great Ecclesiastical Conspiracy This is an excellent article (online book actually) about the history and origin of the King James version of the Bible and how a good number of the original verses were altered slightly and words changed to coincide with popular religious tradition and the current governmental structure in the Anglican church of that daySo You Dont Want To Go To Church Anymore? What would you do if you thought youd met John the Apostle and he told you things that resonated with the deepest longings of your heart? Perhaps that may sound preposterous to some, but over a four-year period the author of this story (who calls himself Jake Colsen) tells his story of twelve life-changing conversations he had with a mysterious stranger that changed virtually everything he believed about God, the Christian life and the nature of the churchBefore you presume that this bro is suggesting that there is another Way besides Jesus, check out this short articleNo comment yetIt originated with sun worshiping pagansand then have the nerve to call other believers who choose not to participate in such sectarian behavior "loose cannons", "uncommitted", "back-slidden", "rebellious", "isolationists", "those who are not under cover", etcJan so eloquenty shared these comments after a personal experience with family who were asking why her and her husband were not contributing the gifts God gave them to the body of Christ via serving in a church 5d8a9798ff
