Superficial Christianity is artificial. Christianity isn’t an institution. It’s a transformed life and a heart passionately in love with the risen Jesus.
Passive listening to a weekly message tends to promote heart-distancing. Open, Spirit-led sharing connects people heart-to-heart.
Much disagreement comes from superficial thinking, but Christ, living in you, will release clear, supernatural thinking. If you won’t take control of your inner self, your thought life, you will be caught in whatever currents flow by.
Modern Christianity seems to have a much greater focus on the superficial than on the sacrificial. The size of your heart is much more important to your net worth than your financial portfolio is.
Too often, what we call self-fulfilment is self-delusion. Instead of satisfying self, we flood self with meaningless distractions. You can’t get any insight from ideas and/or information that you refuse to acknowledge.
Ekklesia (the body of Christ) is love and kindness that flows from Christ in you. It can be expressed very well online. Christianity isn’t an organization. It’s Spirit-led discipleship.
