The Two-Thousand Year Old Christian Mistake

I like following James as he wrestles with important matters of theology. This is a terrific post where he takes the difficult step of challenging Christendom with some hard truth. I think we agree on much in this post… Exactly what the final product looks like, remains to be seen, but, like James, we are on a journey in search of truth and we ask our Father to reveal Himself and truth at every turn!!

Enjoy wrestling with this post!!

Morning Meditations

Ezekiel 36:26. You don’t need to turn to it, just listen. God says, now watch this promise. “A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you.” verse 27. “And I will put my Spirit within you.” Now do you read any conditions there? What are the conditions for getting the Spirit? What are they? Is there an if there? Nope. God says I will do it. Now the credibility of God is at stake. If a Christian has to do something to get the Holy Spirit then in theory, there are some Christians who never do that something so they never get the Holy Spirit. Therefore the promise of God is invalidated in their behalf. No the credibility of God is at stake. And secondly the credibility of Jesus is at stake in John 14, verse 16.

  1. I really, really wrestled with this one. It makes me uncomfortable on a lot of levels. I had made the step to recognizing that there is a problem with the mainstream church, but to declare the whole thing a 2000 year mistake is pretty breathtaking. I need more time to digest, I think.

      James has a follow on post wherein he discusses the many positives in the church. He has been a fun case study to watch as he wrestles with the whole thing…

      I don’t think he declares ‘church’ as a mistake so much as the great error of how the new covenant was interpreted by our fathers for the purpose of drawing separation from Jews and anything, heaven forbid, ‘Jewish.’ The end result is that Christianity is as guilty as Judaism for erecting a wall of separation.

      Abba is in the process of bringing the two halves back together and the meeting place is in the middle: Faith in Yeshua and keeping Torah. Rev. 12:17; 14:12, etc..

      Oh, some other back story… James attends a Sunday church, though has been in the Messianic for a while and his bride is Jewish… Makes for many interesting posts as he wrestles with the whole of Scripture and what it all means… practically.
