Here is a challenging, doctrinally sound book based on an examination of the New Testament churches of Asia. (The Baptist Bulletin) "If the church is to regain her former glory, it must be through radical transformation by taking the church back to the basics as outlined in Scripture.5/5(2). Jesus tells Peter he is the rock of the Church. He affirms His disciple Peter’s faith and character, and says that he will be the foundation of the Kingdom community as it grows. Jesus isn’t hiring Peter—a fisherman by trade—as a subcontractor to erect a building with a steeple. It was time for revival in the church. Jesus warns His church of impending judgment if they did not repent: “I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place” (Revelation b). In other words, their punishment would be the disbanding or destruction of the Ephesian church. The light in Ephesus would go out. And how many today reject Jesus’s offer “Come to me!” because the church looks so offensive! We, the church, are “full of sinners and hypocrites!” Indeed.

Imagine if your congregation received a letter from the Lord of the church, Jesus Himself. What would He say about your church’s love for God’s Word, endurance in trials, and faithful service for.

Imagine walking the dusty roads of Galilee with Jesus of Nazareth—braving jostling crowds just to touch the edge of His cloak and hear Him say, “Take heart, daughter, your faith has healed you.” Those words, once meant to comfort a hurting woman’s soul thousands of years ago, were also meant for you. Join biblical culturalist Kristi McLelland on those dusty roads as she transports you. Some would immediately say “The Pastorals, stupid!” Grant us so perfectly to know your Son Jesus Christ to be the way, the truth, and the life, Narcissism in the church, a new book. What Did Jesus Say About the Church? Jesus said nothing about how we should organize our churches or church services. But he did explain his vision for his followers, and it is beautiful. Jesus talks about “the church”. According to the Gospels, Jesus made only two references to the church. I studied the gospels carefully and learned some things that surprised me because I hadn’t been taught them in church. I saw Jesus setting boundaries repeatedly.
