Hamo has an interesting post on what it means to be a Christian.
Plenty of people say that you can be a Christian without going to Church…..And we all know what Keith Green said, going to church does not make you a Christian anymore than going to McDonalds makes you a hamburger.
But in our individualistic society, have we allowed the culture of our day to influence our beliefs?
Is there something about being part of a Ecclesia that determines our spirituality? If we are not part of ‘a’ body of Christ, to what level are we part of ‘the’ body of Christ?
Does Christ call us to be part of His Body? I would answer yes. To be responsible to it, to care for it, to help it grow, to be a part of His body here on earth? I am sure the answers are again yes.
So where does that leave those who are not part of an Ecclesia….part of a called out people?
Don’t hear me saying you need to go to church on Sunday AM….it is far more time consuming and costly than that.
Isn’t Christ calling us to be in a covenantal relationship with other Christians? Thats far more than attending Church on Sunday.
