5. A biblical church maintains corporate holiness through church discipline. Matthew says, “If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector.” The church really is a place of spiritual protection. Piety in early American religious life was a preeminent concern and shaped the policies and practices of early colonial life. As Bezzant notes, “The Puritan experiment in the New World was more than a Calvinist adventure in pure doctrine. At heart, it was founded on a pious vision for pure worship, which was constrained by pure congregational life.”1 In order to maintain and preserve this.   Though this article lists three types of people who hinder the church, I have a fourth. In fact, this fourth type of person is really the first as the article is in error, but to keep it simple, I’ll just say fourth.. The fourth type of person is someone who places more faith, trust, and allegiance to a particular building vs. God’s people.   Update 3/18/ Another ,+ views of this article since the last update in by far surpassing any other article on this website.

  I) INTRODUCTION. Every so often a book makes itself a must read simply because of the sheer number of people being influenced by it. Rick Warren’s The Purpose Driven Church (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, ) fits this bill to a “T”.

My own arrival in that situation was not entirely sudden for I [ ]. While all things are not spiritual, such as diet, the plether of auxillaries, respect of persons- yet, to think we can operate according the rightly interpreted word of God outside His Spirit, in us as the interpreter of His every meaning, and intent is just plain, right out foolish, conceited; not to mention being gravely decieved, and deceiving.   About 40 years ago a profound shift took place in many Christian congregations across the country for all the right reasons with one troubling unintended consequence: In .

  Rather, we discover what God is and hence can be from the disruptive evangelical narrative that tells who God is: the Father who generates His own Son, on whom He breathes His own Spirit, so that, gathered by the Spirit into union with the Son, we live to the glory of the self-surpassing Father of all grace and goodness. This description serves. “The community of God,” as he calls the church, consists of those who accepted His word in sincerity of heart, follow His example, are led by His Spirit and who trust in His promise in the Scriptures.” 45 From the New Testament, largely Acts and the Pauline writings, he gleaned six marks of the true church: 1) unadulterated, pure doctrine. Again, in the days of Nehemiah, they people also gathered and read from the book of the Law of Moses. And by that they were able to understand what was written in the law concerning them. Let’s see that in the book of Nehemiah “So they read in the book in the law of God distinctly, and gave the sense, and caused them to understand the reading. In his book The Secular City he claimed that “the world, not the church, is the proper focus of Christian life” and “the world of politics is a primary sphere of God’s liberating work today” (Richard Quebedeaux, The Worldly Evangelicals, Harper and Row, , p. 19).
