I couldn’t help but chuckle at some of the church names listed in the post “A Church by Any Other Name.”
I also find it funny when people name their churches after biblical locations: Corinth (are they really that divisive and immoral?), Philippi (they sing songs in jail?), Bethel (oh… so that building is the house of God?), etc.
What happened to the true biblical designations for churches? You know… the church in X city, or the church that meets in Y’s house.
Would that ever work today? Or, are we beyond those simple designations?
