Description

Let me present a New Testament truth I had to confront, and then examine the Word on the matter and think it through: Here is the truth as presented in the New Testament: God doesn't live in a (church) building. God used to live in a building; from the days of the Tabernacle of Moses through Solomon's Temple all the way until the day of Pentecost, he lived in a building. If you wanted God you had to go to the temple in Jerusalem to meet him. That is exactly why those thousands were in Jerusalem on the day of Pentecost. But Peter's message that day was that God has moved out of the building and is pouring his Spirit on all people of all ages, of all races, of both genders everywhere, as many as would receive Him. "Do you not know your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost" (I Cor 6:19) is the New Testament reality. This current and ever present reality of Christ living in us and NOT a building is restated many times throughout the NT by various writers: Christ in you the hope of glory (Col 1:27); Greater is he that is in you than he that is in the world (I John 4:4) ; You are a living building, a royal priesthood (I Peter 2:5,9) ; The anointing which you have received of him lives in you, and is the truth and not a lie..." (I John 2:27) and many more passages state this truth.

(I John 2:27) and many more passages state this truth. God moved out of buildings and into people, making them portable temples, by which God can now take his temples all over the planet, giving any who will, the chance to become temples of God too. Let that sink in - God doesn't live in buildings anymore - he lives in people exclusively. When 2 or 3 come together he is in their midst because he is first in them individually, and in their midst by sheer numbers of participating temples brought together to seek him. The reason the early church met in homes was because they did not need to go to a building anymore to see God manifest Himself once he left the temple, not because they were persecuted at times. They went to living rooms to meet with multiple temples of God - His people. When you strip away church culture down to the fact that the teachings of the apostles, that Christ lives in you and you are a temple of God (not a building), you'll be amazed how much of what we hold near and dear to our hearts is nothing more than 1700 year old culture that isn't even found in the Bible, nor was it practiced by the apostles. What you're left with is a simple faith that sees Christ in others, not in a building or program-dependent faith
