i’ve been thinking a lot about church lately. and i think that the Bride that i’m mostly familiar with is very selfish and probably obese. the Church is so dang overweight from consuming too much (programs, politics etc) but i guess this is what happens when a church becomes focused on building itself up. does it really matter how many rear-ends are in the pews if the church isn’t actually serving? does the church exist solely to pleasure herself or is she here, in the community, to actually SERVE the community. maybe the church should quit looking in the mirror and give herself away.

peace.

i was reading in romans at the end of chapter eleven where paul is explaining how all of israel will be saved. he says, “israel has experienced a hardening in part until the full number of gentiles has come in. and so all israel will be saved…”

again, speaking of israel paul says, “just as you who were at one time disobedient to God have now received mercy as a result of their [israel’s] disobedience, so they too have now become disobedient in order that they too may now receive mercy as a result of God’s mercy to you.” 

however, then paul says something peculiar: “for God has bound all men over to disobedience so that he may have mercy on them all.”

now, i don’t consider myself a universalist, but i thought about this saying and found that it challenged some of what i held to be true.

thoughts anyone?

peace.
