I have gone through a lot in the last three years; betrayal, bitterness, learning real love, and trying to find out what the church really is. I will not go into details about what I've experienced since I am trying to love...even through my continuing hurt (and I do ask for prayer for that!).

But what I want to ask you today, for a discussion that can hopefully broaden everyone's mind and for us to really dig into what our true beliefs really are so that we can stand even more firm before each other and more importantly, before Christ.

What is the church?

How is it defined?

Where is it?

Can we experience it in a building only on Sundays?

How is it to be experienced?

What is our role in the church?

Is where most 'believers' meet (most well known for 'church') especially in America, set up in a way that is most beneficial to the people it impacts?

I don't want there to be any negative arguments, I don't need that and neither does anyone else. If what you have to say will build up another person towards Christ then please let it be said, otherwise, post on a different topic. Thank you everyone, I hope this can not only help me, but other people as well.

May God's love for me flow through me to you...

What the church looks like in the new testament (when they are not in trouble with Paul that is).....that's what its supposed to look like.

To get the church of today to that point...it'd take a lot of self-sacrificing love, forgiveness, and humble minded people open to the word of God.
