the weblog of Alan Knox article: Sunday 101: What is the house of God?

Posted by on Jan 30, 2011 in | 2 comments article: Sunday 101: What is the house of God?

I’ve published another article on as the Raleigh Practical Christianity Examiner. The article is called “Sunday 101: What is the house of God?

This is the second article in a series called “Sunday 101.”

This article is about the label “house of God.” Unfortunately, too many believers today use the phrase “house of God” to refer to church buildings. This is a deviation from what we find in Scripture.

Here is part of my article:

I was driving home last week when I noticed a sign in front of a church building near our house. The sign read, “Welcome to the House of God!” I’ve seen signs such as this both outside and inside church building all around the Raleigh area.

Unfortunately, the sign indicates a radical deviation from the teachings of the New Testament…

The authors of Scripture tell us that the Old Testament era temples were shadows of the real temple and the real house of God.

    Acts 17:24
    God that made the world and all things therein, seeing that he is
    Lord of heaven and earth, “dwelleth NOT” in temples made with hands;
