  The Church Is NotFriday, July 19th, 2024  
compiled by Robert J. Young

The Church is a place where people can belong. Such is a bold claim. One can only wonder if the real is anywhere close to the ideal. Think with me!

The church is not made up on people who believe they are better than others, but rather of those who believe they ought to be better than they are.

The church is not made up of perfect people, but of people who follow a perfect Lord and realize they ought to do the best they can.

The church is not made up of people who never make mistakes, but of those who acknowledge their mistakes and try not to make the same ones again.

The church is not trying to withdraw from everyone, but rather to bring everyone into its fellowship and love.

The church is not trying to set up arbitrary rules to hinder anyone, but to show how following the rule of Christ helps us all.

The church is not trying to make you feel ugly, but trying to instill the beauty of holiness in your life.

The church is not trying to separate you from your money, but is trying to keep your money from separating you from God.
