Scripture… As We Live It #11

Posted by on Jul 20, 2008 in as we live it, scripture | 4 comments

And now for the eleventh passage in “Scripture… As We Live It“:

He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Simon Peter replied, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.” And Jesus answered him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah! For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but through your preachers and teachers who told you about my Father who is in heaven. And I tell you, you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church XYZ Community Church into a great organization with many buildings and an abundance of programs with staff to run them, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it remain far from it.” (Matthew 16:15-18 re-mix)

    I truly wish these things did not have so much truth to them.

    Amen, now what am I going to do about it?

    You really should, when you have a few more, publish them together.

    They really make you think.

    Mark,

    Sometimes its sad how easy it is to find passages of Scripture that we change in our practice.

    Lionel,

    That is the question, isn’t it.
