The Body of Christ

II Cor. 6:16
For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: 
      “ I will dwell in them
      And walk among them.
      I will be their God,
      And they shall be My people.”

I Cor. 6:19
19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?

If as Paul says and also quotes from the prophets that our body is the Temple of Christ, then what are we doing worshipping a building men commonly call a church? I did not miswrite. Men are worshipping a building they call church. I have heard with my own ears and read with my own eyes the proclamations of support for the church! When many pastors preach about not forsaking the assembly they put the focus on the church and not on Christ. The point of all assembly as God intended it was to magnify and glorify Christ and fulfill His commandments and minister to Him. Where is the ministering if our focus is on ourselves, sitting in a pew listening to a man who takes the seat of Moses when that seat has been fulfilled by Christ Himself? There is no mediator other than Christ. Who are we to place a man as mediator like the nation of Israel did with Moses and still expect Salvation through Jesus. Church, as man has created it, is a distraction to sharing the full Gospel of Christ and living the full Gospel of Christ. Men have become too complacent in their understanding and service to the Lord. It is imperative to follow Christ’s commandments as He laid them out and not as we interpet them for ourselves. When we interpet things for ourselves, we are intpreting according to our will and our agenda and not His. I pray each person that reads this considers carefully how the serve and worship the Lord when they assemble in His name compared to Christ’s commandments and the exhortations of the Apostles.

    Whoever wrote this site put in a lot of work to explain many of the things I’m beginning to understand and yearn for in fellowship and serving Christ. I hope it blesses you in your service as well.
