Ephesians 3:10: His intent was that now, through the church, the manifold wisdom of God should be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly realms.
Dear Warrior Poet,
The mystery of Jesus is revealed in the Church! A Christianity devoid of community is an anomaly that is incongruent with Jesus’ vision and the reality of a unified body. If you are to progress in your faith it will always include the local body of believers, not a select affinity, but the messiness of the book of Acts. To serve God divorced from the Body is to deny a local body its vitality. No greater woundedness is revealed than by those who live their faith in Jesus alienated from a local body. No amount of hyper hermeneutics will slither through Jesus’ intent through the local body.
