A Study on Mutual Edification – Part 1

Mutual Edification

Recently, I had a conversation with a brother about mutual edification. The funny thing is that our conversation that started out as a light hearted dialogue, turned into a more heated debate/argument, which I realized was far from mutually edifying. I hope you see the irony in this. I then started to consider all the […]

Is the Church a Building?

Is the church a building?

As the title suggests, I want to aks you a question regarding how we see the Church. This post will be rather short as I’m looking for feedback, rather than trying to give all the answers. My hope is that this post will make you think more deeply about the way we see and talk […]

Organic Church – An Example

Organic Church gathering

In my series on “Why I’m Pro-Organic Church” I looked at what an organic church is and I gave some practical characteristics of what organic church can look like. I also gave a few links to specific testimonies of what a could happen in a meeting. As a follow up, I would like to share […]

Christ – The Center of All Things

supremacy-of-christ

While thinking back on my journey with the Lord, I realized that there was one main revelation/realization that changed the way I saw the Lord and how I lived the Christian life. It was coming to an understanding that Christ is the center of all things. It is easy (and common) to be focused and […]

unity-john-171

This post is part of a chain blog series initiated by Alan Knox on the topic of “real relational unity”. The first post in the chain is by Alan and can be found here (Chain Blog: Real Relational Unity) Christian unity is a common topic in many circles, and rightfully so. However, in reality, Christian […]

Body-Building God’s Way

Body-building

Paul, in describing the body of Christ used many different analogies and pictures. In this post I will follow in Paul’s footsteps, and use the analogy of a bodybuilder to describe how the body of Christ grows and strengthens. Any serious body-builder will tell you there are at least two things required for a body […]

Why I’m Pro-Organic Church – Part 3

Organic Church

Part 1 and Part 2 of this series on organic church goes through my journey into finding out about organic church and what the characteristics of an organic church are. It is almost impossible to say what any one meeting will look like in an organic church, because Christ as the head of the gathering can […]

The Church – God’s Dwelling Place

House of God

If you have read some of my blog already, then you will know that I am passionate about the Church of Christ. However, this was not always the case. Looking back, at one point I was totally disinterested with the church as I knew it. I won’t go into details of why in this post, […]

The Second Eve – Part 2

bride of Christ

As I said in my first post, this series has largely been inspired by Frank Viola’s “From Eternity to Here”. We saw in my last post that if Christ is the second Adam, then His bride, the church, is the second Eve. In this post, I want to look at what this second Eve looks like […]

The Second Eve – Part 1

Christ's wife

Firstly, this series is largely inspired by Frank Viola’s book, “From Eternity To Here”. If you want to understand this theme better then I highly recommend the book! Most of us have heard that Christ is the second or last Adam (1 Cor. 15:45, 1 Cor. 15:47). This makes sense to us because Paul goes […]
