Is it possible that believers in the western world have been deceived by the "Christendom" ideology?
Is it possible that what we thought was, and still do think of as the gospel, is influencing the people in our sphere of influence or abroad, to our belief system so as to gain converts for our denomination by their adherence to our religious standards?
As believers we must understand, this type of presentation of the gospel is nothing more than superficial religiosity that mystifies, polarizes, sectionalizes and disfunctionalizes the missional purpose of the Church!
The Church cannot do what God created it to do without being what God designed it to be! I am of the persuasion that the "Christendom" ideology does not give a proper understanding of what the Church is designed to do let alone what it is supposed to be!
The DOING of Church without BEING the Church is a warped presentation of the purpose of the Church that Jesus said He would build!
