The Church of Your Choice?

Choosing what we want

Shopping options continue to increase exponentially—whether groceries, automobiles, appliances, clothing—so many brands, styles, models, colors, flavors, sizes, etc. to choose from.

Should we approach faith with the same consumer mindset we use when walking down the aisles of our favorite department store?

No.

Choosing what He wants

Regarding the multiplicity of options available on the religious landscape, is this what Christ had in mind when He said, “. . . I will build My church . . .” (Matthew 16:18)?

He has told us what He expects of His church—its purpose and unity, its beliefs and teaching, its work and worship.

Given the tremendous price He paid for His church—His own blood—shouldn’t we yield all our preferences to His?
