Lazaroo – Friday, August 31, 2012

Aug 31, 2012 I Lazaroo.

 

Pray the words of this Lazaroo aloud, with sober vigilance:

“…the churches of Judea that are in Christ.”
(Galatians 1:22)

At first glance that phrase appears redundant, Jesus.

Aren’t all churches in You?”

Apparently not.

Even then – all the way back to the beginning –

there were false churches.

Wow.
Sobering.

So if that happened 2,000 years ago, within mere decades of Your death, burial and resurrection…

why would I think it can’t happen today?

Churches on the outside

maybe with a cross or a steeple on the roof
maybe with a choir or a band on the platform
maybe with a preacher in the pulpit
maybe supporting missionaries on foreign soil
maybe with thousands in the congregation

or only a handful

but not churches “in Christ.”

Why?

          How does something like that happen?
How does a genuine church turn into a mere social club?

I think I know.

It starts the moment they leave the foundation of Your Word.
