Prodigal Kiwi Blog: Stop Talking About Church….

07Mar05

Good reminder Alan. Good link Paul. Click to read. I wonder if this is a conversation changer that needs to happen – and soon. I suspect that if we seriously began talking more about the gospel lived than the form (or theology) of the church then atleast 2 things would happen:

1) We’d REALLY piss people off. To say that XYZ Church’s worship service is based on bad theology is one thing….. but to say that the gospel that you have believed is inadequate, compartmentalized, or maybe just flat wrong…. well then you’re messin’ for a brawl.

2) Despite (and maybe because of) #1 it would change the conversation from Form to Substance (or Essence – ala Gordon Cosby). This seems to me to be a better tact and truer to Christ’s continued work on earth.
