Art and the Church

In this post i’m going to attempt to talk about art and how it relates to the Church. This is quite a strange topic for me since I don’t really know much about art. However, I am able to appreciate the beauty and skill behind it. I’m actually the odd one out in my family […]

A Study on Mutual Edification – Part 2

In my previous post “A Study on Mutual Edification – Part 1“, I initiated a study on the main verses in the new testament that talk about mutual edification. I looked at Romans 14:19, which revealed that Paul speaks about avoiding anything that may cause a brother to stumble and prescribes active mutual edification among the saints. One of the main […]

A Study on Mutual Edification – Part 1

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?

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

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 […]

Christian Unity – What it is and What it’s Not

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

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

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

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

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 […]
