Divorce and division

Posted by appolus on July 16, 2019

At some point after you were born, did you have to fill out membership forms to join your family? Were you not a member of your family the moment you were conceived? Was there not great joy in your family the day that you were born? The day that you were born again was there not great joy in heaven?

Are you a member of that heavenly family due to signed paperwork or rather are you a member of that heavenly family due to you being born again? In your family as you grew up did you all believe the same thing? Did you form yourselves into groups according to your opinions? Did you turn on one another based on disagreements? How did that work out?

Did you parents divorce due to irreconcilable differences? How did that effect the family? Did it help? Do you know many of your friends whose parents are divorced due to irreconcilable differences? When did divorce become a legitimate way to resolve our problems? Where was God in the midst of all that? Does God like divorce? Is divorce His solution to problems?

Of course, in all of this I am talking about The Church using the tragic analogy of our modern culture of divorce. If we are truly born again we are one Body in Christ, not some ecumenical or utopian dream, but one as He and the Father are one. We are one in Him. This was His plan.

We were not to be unequally yoked but rather equally bound together in Christ our Lord so that the world may know that He was sent by His Father. And the glory which was given to Christ, He has given to us. Father forgive us for not walking according to your Word. Forgive us for being more sold out to the systems of men rather than to the Word of God.

You instructed us not to be unequally yoked yet in order to maintain a system devised by man we ignore that, somehow believing that by defying the Word of God we are fulfilling the will of God. What blindness has overtaken us Lord and we wonder why we have fallen into a ditch. Open the eyes of our hearts Lord, we want to see you, high and lifted up, where the Glory is, the very glory that you have given unto us.

Temptations for the ” organic church.” – Jamal Jivanjee

Posted by appolus on December 20, 2013

The post below by Jamal Jivangee makes some excellent points worth true consideration………….bro Frank

In today’s post, I’d like to share with you some very real temptations that can occur to folks who are attempting to meet organically outside of the traditional religious system. This is a temptation that I am experiencing right now in my current season of life, and I’d like to share my temptation with you today in the hope that my experience can be helpful to you and your relationships. Before I do that, however, I need to give you some background information about me.

Several years ago, I left the institutional religious system. This was no small feat for me as it was a system I was heavily invested in. I had been religiously trained in college, and I had been employed as a clergy member. When I decided to leave this system, many people felt I had withdrawn or abandoned them personally. On a semi-regular basis, it would be common for me to hear something like this when I would encounter a former ‘church member’ in a store when I was out and about:

“Oh hey Jamal, how are you? I haven’t seen you in a while. We’ve missed you lately. It would be great to see you soon.”
