Sometimes, in our zeal for evangelism, we attempt to sell people on “our church.” This approach not only fosters the un-biblical denominational concept of the church, but takes the emphasis of the church of God and places it on man’s desires. While this has become the de facto approach for most denominations, is it really the manner in which God would have us to evangelize? Are we simply trying to get people to come to “our church” or are we supposed to be accomplishing something far more important than that with the work God has given us to do?

Imagine, if you will, that you are on the verge of building your very first house. You have meticulously gone through the various sources for blueprints and plans, and have found the perfect house. Every detail has been given attention, and you are excited to see all of your planning come to fruition. After several months, the time has come to move into your home. When you arrive, you find that it is nothing like what you planned, and described (through blueprints) for the contractor!  Upon further examination, and a discussion with the contractor, you find that he has taken it upon himself to make “improvements” to your approved design! Can you imagine how angry, and disappointed you would be if you found yourself in such a situation?

One Church is as Good as Another PDF Print E-mail

A couple of days ago, I had the opportunity to visit a gospel meeting and hear Paul Casebolt present a lesson on the church. He made a point in the sermon in a way I had never really thought of before. It made me think about how many people approach the task of “picking a church.”

 

We often hear people in the religious world tell us that “one church is as good as another.” The point they are trying to make is that you can pick any church you want, and God is happy with any decision you make. However, this is one of those instances where actions speak louder than words! Once a person makes a choice, they have determined that one church is indeed better than another! They have implemented some kind of criteria to determine which church they want to attend, whether they realize it or not. The bottom line is that they have determined that the church of their choice is better than all other churches, for one reason or another.
