Apologetics from an Anabaptist perspective

The church in perpetual tune-up mode

[Adapted from a question in an old Bible study book.]combine-harvester-545090_1280

The purpose of the church is to win souls. It is important that the church be kept pure. Is it possible, though, that so much time and energy is spent on the details of church work that we have come to see that as our main mission, somewhat as though a man was forever servicing and tuning up a combine and never getting to the field to use it to harvest the waiting grain?

    Amen! a car parked in a garage does not serve its purpose!

I'd love to hear what you think about this. Please leave a comment.
