A Critical Analysis Of The Concept Of The Church

Published by Xlibris
Religion can be looked upon as a way of life, but being religious does not make anyone God’s adopted child. Congregating with other persons does not make one the Church. That is why, the requirements are to be born-again of the water, the Holy Spirit, and the blood, as rightly mentioned, but it also involves living and walking by faith in Jesus Christ, the Lord and the Saviour of mankind.

Being the Church as the world knows is not just going into a building to congregate for worship, making empty noises, preaching enticing words, and saying ‘thus said the Lord’. Hence, the reason for the schisms, when forms of spirit-filled actions take place among churchgoers who are saying the Spirit of God, fell upon the Church. Truly, those are the actions of ‘churchgoers’. True worship and walking in the Spirit are demonstrated through the Church in man; God’s dwelling place in man known as the Church militant communicates with the Church triumphantly and invisibly.
