The cathedral, the church, and the marketplace bazaar — 5 Comments

  1. Do you mean with the phrase “run a ‘general contracting’ company as the Son of God,”Kevin, serving people in all their spiritual needs regardless of their worldly situation or status? Lacking omnipotence, wouldn’t I be more effective in serving the Lord through a niche or two?

    • Kel,

      If ALL you do is serve someone’s spiritual needs, you’ve missed God’s purpose for each of our lives. It’s not an “either/or” situation, but an “and” where you help both their spiritual and physical. The priority is to ground someone in their faith first before you tackle their physical. “Faith without works is dead.”

  2. What a timely, well written and much needed insight. Faith without works is dead. The spiritual circular divide has to cease for it is not of God, this will be followed by the laity, clergy divide as well. We have one life and it is a life sold to righteousness. We have one agenda and that is being about our father’s business. The holistic gospel takes care of the body, soul and spirit. If any these is out is synergy death follows. I wonder at times the rational of putting millions in buildings that are not generating a profit. God is living in us, we are the new temple. Can these new buildings not be put to use for economic and profitable activities during the week? Just wondering aloud!

    • Your comment, “Can these new buildings not be put to use for economic and profitable activities during the week?”

      An unequivocal YES!!! Our problems stem, not from the building themselves, but our laws (a 501C3 church can’t make profits) but can take donations. However, as I have seen throughout America, and elsewhere, the buildings sit idle Monday through Saturday, a WASTE of resources that could be put to better use. I discuss in an upcoming issue of my “Fish Tank Startups Newsletter” the term “Church Coworking.” Will discuss more about this at a later date.
