Jeremiah 7: 3 – 8
Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, Amend your ways and your doings, and I will cause you to dwell in this place.Trust ye not in lying words, saying, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, The temple of the LORD, are these.For if ye thoroughly amend your ways and your doings; if ye thoroughly execute judgment between a man and his neighbour;If ye oppress not the stranger, the fatherless, and the widow, and shed not innocent blood in this place, neither walk after other gods to you hurt:Then will I cause you to dwell in this place, in the land that I gave to your fathers, for ever and ever.Behold, ye trust in lying words, that cannot profit
What is the Church of Jesus Christ?
This is one question that could set your thoughts going for quite a long time. These are so many definitions that we can spend months just going through the Bible looking at the different views. We can argue about subjects like is it the bride, the elected, a nation, or what ever. But that is not the question.
The question is: What is the Church of Jesus Christ?
There are so many books on the subject that I think most people are not even interested in this subject anymore. So many persons have given their own interpretation that we have all lost interest in finding out what the Church of Jesus Christ is.
I want to approach this question from a different angle. I do not want to argue the case of the institutional church or the house church movement, or even look at the meaning of the word ecclesia. I also do not want to look if a Pentecostal or whatever type of church is the real church. No, I want to look at our approach to church and from these hopes to give you an idea of what Church is.
