What questions?

Posted by on Sep 25, 2007 in community, definition, discipline, edification, fellowship, gathering | 17 comments

A few days ago, my friend Ed suggested that I create an FAQ page to explain some of my “ideas and heresies”. (Thanks, Ed! I think…) Actually, I think it is a good idea. What I want to do is create a page that points people to some of my posts that explain my views on certain topics dealing with the church. I’ll put a link to this page on my sidebar. But, what questions should I include? Here are some that I’ve thought of:

What is the church?

What is disicpleship?

What should believers do when the church gathers together?

What is worship?

What is edification?

What are elders?

Why is unity about believers so important?

For what reasons should believers separate from one another?

What about spiritual gifts?

What is fellowship and community?

What does it mean to love other people?

What are baptism and the Lord’s Supper?

What do I think about church programs?

Can you think of other questions that I should ask/answer in an FAQ?

    Again, great questions, everyone! I don’t know if I’ll be able to answer all of them, since I have published any posts about some of them, but I’ll see what I can do.

    If you think of other questions, please continue to add them to the list here.
