Is it possible that everything we know about todays Christianity is not what was intended or even thought about by the first century church?
Could it be that our practices, our traditions, our use of the bible, our understanding of what church is and the emphasis that we put upon that understanding is flawed?
Would Peter, James and John endorse or cry out against our understandings and expressions of the church? Would Paul be accepted by the local church in my town or would a riot breakout at his presence?
Let me ask more questions.
Did Jesus ever intend that we build tax-free institutions and gather weekly to sing songs, raise hands, take communion, give our money and listen to a speaker?
Will you even think about these questions or will you dismiss them as questions not worth thinking about. What are the alternatives if any? Is this as good as it gets?
