“Part of a family” by Bill Kynes

“People who say ‘I can be a Christian without being a part of a church’ are missing the whole point. You might as well say I can be born without being a part of a family. That may be true, but who would want to?

Being a part of a local church is part of what it means to be a Christian. Like marriage, living as a Christian is something that can’t be done alone. For the church is the family, the household, of God.

In our postmodern culture, with its tremendous sense of homelessness, both socially and cosmically, I can think of no more powerful attraction than to find one’s home in the family of God.”

–Bill Kynes, “The Church: A Hidden Glory (1 Timothy 3:14-16),” Themelios 35.1 (2010): 30-36.
