Ripped Off by Religion
When Dan Kimball wrote the book, “They Like Jesus But Not The Church,” several matters were brought into focus worthy of consideration – that the church might become all that God intended for her to be and have the greatest positive impact possible in our irreligious world.
Almost 2,000 years before Dan wrote his book, the Apostle Paul addressed a similar concern in his letter to the Colossians – that the church at Colosse might not fall into religiosity.
This Sunday in our continuing message series in Colossians we come to Paul’s final proactive exhortation to a church he cared for enough to call their attention to what needed their attention. His desire was that they, and people like us, might focus on that which matters most.
