Is it not more than a little ironic that we are asked about which religion do we belong to, rather than which faith? Which twig rather than which tree?
For does not dividing ourselves into ‘sects’ undermine the tenet of being ‘one body’ in Christ? This week the thought occurred that the more prescriptive we get about how we should worship and conform, the closer we get to becoming the ‘Scribes and Pharisees’ of the New Testament.
Which all serves to remind that it is our own very personal relationship with Christ that is so critical, not mere attendance at the church of your choice. How about doing some internet research, starting with the meaning behind Mark 16, verses 17-20. What were we tasked with, and what are we doing?
As ever, there is so much more for us if we ask. Have you asked?
