“Jesus is being lost in a religion bearing His name. People are being lost because they cannot reconcile Jesus’ association with Christianity. We have forgotten that there is a kingdom stealing the hopes and dreams and souls of a humanity without God.” p 17
When the religious leaders came to John to be baptised he had no patience for the domesticated religionists who were drowning in their own self righteousness. p 22
I see Christ had the same intolerance for such as these “white washed tombs”.
True followers of Christ do not simply exist in a building of four walls be ARE the CHURCH the HANDS & FEET of CHRIST. Not to attain our place in heaven but because of the Price already paid in full. The true heart of a follower of Jesus beats with Christ and in Christ. The way of such a person is marked by his deep love and concern for those in need and a passion that cannot be quenched not EVER for the seat of a position or self importance.
