The church is under attack today. Both from the outside and from the inside.
On the outside, the church is belittled, had rights taken away from it, and is being banned from the public square as the culture casts aside the Christian moral code.
On the inside, brothers are turning against brothers, cliques are formed, and what is supposed to be a loving body of believers is instead a series of power plays that mimics the Constitutional government that it currently uses.
Christ is not the literal Head, but a figure head. He’s like the Chancellor of the University who is no longer the President. They like having Him around, or His name sake, and they look for His blessing, but what they don’t realize is that He’s left the building.
No, this isn’t all churches. God will always have people that He can use. The problem is that many churches—though well intentioned—have turned their gatherings into nothing more than club meetings.
This new series will go further into the concept of the church being the body of Christ, what that means, why it’s important, why we cannot do without other believers, and how this body should act.
