Getting to the root of the primitive Church--We have no king but Jesus
Getting to the root of the primitive Church--We have no king but Jesus

The word church does not seem to be in the Old Testament. Yet the word ekklesia that Jesus and His ambassadors used is.  What can this teach us about the nature of the Church?

If you think this is worthy of discussion, please share it publicly, and plus one the post.

Being faithful to Jesus requires understanding His message the way He intended you to. Jesus’ first followers understood His message differently than most Christians today—maybe that’s why today’s Church is so different from theirs.

I want to encourage you to be as radical as they were—to understand Jesus and His teaching the way they did—to turn your world upside down!

Who has not read the Sermon on the Mount and not wondered why most Christians today do not follow its simple instructions?  Who has not read the book of Acts and wondered why we do not see such things today?  Are those two questions related?

You know you must believe in Jesus Christ, but do you even know what that means?  Is the only difference in your belief in Him, and a child’s belief in Santa Clause, the fact that what you believe is really true?  What did the first Christians believe that you don’t?  These are the kinds of questions we will pursue on

If you feel the same way, or even if you are just intrigued and want to learn more, I hope you will +1 and circle this page. Please help us spread the word by sharing our posts and telling  others about the blog.
