‘To See’=’The Church’

This blog will be my only writing of the ‘state of the church’ looking from the outside. Otherwise I will be always writing within the realm of the Church.

This view of the world, is from personal experience of the looking for the influencing factor of christianity in my world.

It is coming from this perspective that you will be amazed on what you actually ‘see’ or don’t ‘see’. If we use as our baseline of what a christian is,christianity is, or being Christ like, as told in Matthew as Jesus tells us. You see that it encompasses alot of things in life, from your daily life, your work life, and just your being in God’s realm.

The bubble that we seem to have used in defining this life has been the brick and mortar ‘church’, with a spokesman that has led us to the place that we are now. But what is the telltale sign of its redeeming value in God’s Kingdom. What qualities should we be seeing in the world, our neighbors,our friends or our family? What does it look like? Who is apart of it.?

The litmus test is the daily life of our Christ like being that will tell us if we are doing God’s work. I have over the last few years been in a environment where there is alot of interaction of a plethora of people from various backgrounds interacting in informal ways to just tend to business of life. Alot of people, alot of interaction. Just life. It is nothing new. It is the same old thing that has has gone on for centuries. Has anything changed? Should it? Does it need to change? What influence would make it change, on how we act from last century to this century?

So, If the christianity influence in the world has been the ‘ideal’ situation of telling the ‘Gospel’ to them, it should be showing the results in our daily lives, in yours and mine. But how? and by who.

I’ll be honest, I don’t ‘see’ it. I don’t.

What does it look like? Who’s being ‘different’? What are they doing?

I guess it means that I don’t ‘see’ Christ.

I don’t see individuals just being Christ daily.


Is it the system, the church, the pastor, the people, the message, the paradigm?

What’s wrong?

Something has to change, but what is it.

What if there was something that were missing in the storyline of the Bible?

Is it a different paradigm that we need to look at or see?

Do we need to look past the surface of the text to see what God is saying and doing?

I believe that we must! It cannot continue to go this way in our world to continue to go down the path of nowhere.

I will continue this train of thought in the next blog that will expand on the subject.

What defines the word-‘community’?

It is used in so many ways that we have a distorted understanding of it. We also have a lot of questions about it too. Some people believe that it is your neighbor, neighbors, your little town, your big town, or maybe just who you associate with. It is also could be the community of your beliefs, community of your work, or the community of family.

Maybe, just maybe if we could just combine all these things that we believe is just the one that we see as a community as we are involved in. It is because ‘we’ need to see that our community is the entire creation that God has created.

Community is a unique way of distinguishing a people that are united in their nature in something that unites them all to one thing. That one thing is God, the creator. We are his creation, he is our creator.

The model

It’s natural.

Why?      Why do we try to make things hard for ourselves, groups or even for the body of God?

We create, design, improve on programs, or just reuse the same things over and over again to try and say it worked before,why not agian?

This natural model is always overlooked as the only way that it was designed to work in every situation. But yet  we seem to think that it could be done in a very different and better way. We even move the agenda away from where it should be where it should start.

What am I talking about?

In Genesis 1-2, It started in particular place, a particular people, a particular two. Those two were designed for a purpose. They were designed to be a divine twosome. A Godly couple, a couple that was to go forth and multiply. (This model, had it gone right, we would not be talking about this subject now) This divine couple was to in a seamless act pass on this divine nature to the next generation and they were to  pass it on to the next generation again.

So, what happened? We,Adam and Eve, were introduced to Sin, and we became friends with it,accepted it. We,Adam’s generation’s broke this chain of link’s that was planned in the beggining to venture on their own reasoning. Their reasoning took them in alot of different ways, one that stood out was the one of ‘going’ to a ‘place’ where our God could meet us. It had to be special, Holy, and only one place. Ironically, we had to build it ourselves?

But, why did we not see the blueprint that was made for us in the place that we were just kicked out of? Did our knowledge of good and evil,stand in our way of seeing the ‘Temple’ that God had designed and yet we thought that we could duplicate it, in maybe a smaller scale,as a Synagogue or a church building?

Our attempt at reality(God’s realm) has been made in  human realm that doesn’t do justice to God’s reality! God’s reality is not our’s. His model is not ours. But yet we see it as the right one. We only see His reality thru our reality’s eyes, but if we would see the reality of God thru His eyes, it would be clear to us.

This model or the framework of His purpose could only be designed thru ‘the family’ and ‘thru Him’ to be eternal. The family model, is natural, it’s an effortless transition of God’s desire of fellowship from then to now and thru eternity! I believe that we see that it is thru Him, but it is still a ‘work’ that puts us behind the eight ball that gets us in trouble. We feel that urge to ‘help’ God out to achieve His Temple. The bible says the opposite of this.

What would the model look like if we were to start it now? The Family(Body) would ‘be’, in know time! Isn’t this what God was doing in the Garden of Eden with Adam and Eve?

The Body was just an infant, and yet it died.

The ‘New Creation’ is now alive with Christ and still in it’s childhood but will someday be the Bride, that He has always had His eyes on!
