Missing the Point: The point of Christianity is CHRIST. Christ, is the point of the message we as His followers are commanded to deliver. The message, otherwise known as, The Gospel, is not in need of our spit polish or savvy salesmanship. It is rugged, bloody, and savage. It is triumphant and filled with pathos. It is the point where justice and mercy meet, finding a path to deliverance through one, Divine, willing individual, our Creator. You cannot beautify Christ, He is already beautiful, you cannot sell Christ, He is sovereign, if you try to polish His message, you diminish the sacrifice, and deny the depths He traveled to get us where we are: one with Him. We, as The Church, are guilty, guilty of marketing Christianity like some commodity, running our organizations like multi million dollar corporations and treating our members like shareholders. We are, The Body of Christ. We are a Chosen Nation, A Royal Priesthood, for one purpose, proclaiming the bloody, brutal, triumphant Gospel of Peace between God and His creation.
