“Be not conformed to this world…” –Paul (Romans 12:2)
We return to this theme again and again: churches “reach out” so far, they’re not in the church anymore.
We have all had experience, I daresay, of theologically flabby churches that stop just short of outright apostasy–not because they have a horror of apostasy, but because they were just too blamed lazy to go any farther.
But remember: we are the Church: all of us who believe in Jesus Christ Our Lord, who call upon His name, and put our trust in Him. It’s not the building, it’s not the denomination. It’s “the holy catholic church” of the Apostle’s Creed, the universal family of all Christ’s people.
Some of whom can even be found in megachurches.
