You Can’t Go To Church
Something that has particularly bothered me of late is the whole idea, or statement of “going to church” “our church” “looking for a new church” is this, all of those statements are false. Jesus Christ is the Church as Bonhoeffer said, the Church is a body of people that compose Jesus himself. He is present when the Church acts, and gives due credit to revelation. If you are looking to go to church, speaking of your church, or looking for a new church you will be continually misguided. There is one Church as there is One Lord, Jesus Christ. The dead risen, the incarnate, the redeemer, the Son. The Church is the action of Jesus in the presence. Our salvation is not to go to church, we are liberated to continue the miracle of the incarnation, to show that God is for us, and with us.
