1 Thessalonians 2:15 who killed both the Lord Jesus and their own prophets, and have persecuted us; and they do not please God and are contrary to all men
Those unsaved religious folks, these are their fruits. We can all be here if we do not receive & welcome Jesus Christ in our hearts and lives. They rejected Jesus, they rejected the prophets, and they rejected the church. Jesus is glorified in His body, the church. He is always with us, no matter where we may be, but there is something uniquely special about gathering together that is simply unmatched. Please, dont ever grow sour of His often disfunctioning body. It is a work in progress, just like you. The church has plenty of issues but it belongs to Jesus! Take time to invest your all in His body, for that will truly benefit you. Ive had some painful events at church but they pale in comparison to the amazing joys in His church. My view of Jesus, He is God. My view of the prophets, heros in humility to give Gods word. My view of the church, Gods redeemed and beloved ones! I feel when you stray from this, you are susceptible to what these religious folks done!
