YOU are not the body of Christ. WE are! I'm sure that I am not the only one that hears statements like these flowing out of the mouths of (supposed) Christ followers fairly often:
- My "spirituality" is between me and God.
- My "religion" is a personal thing that is no one else's business.
- My walk with God is MY walk with God.
The goal of many churches is to bring individual sinners to an individual decision for an individualistic faith. As a a result, the goal of the early church- mutual edification and every-member functioning to corporately manifest Jesus Christ before principalities and powers- is altogether lost.
