Separation in the Church

“We have much the same problem in the Church…Mom goes off to her Women in the church…circle.  Dad heads off to his Promise Keepers meeting.  Princess is at her youth group meeting, while Junior is watching videos of vegetables in children’s church….the truth is we are failing miserably, even when we think we are succeeding.  We’re allowing our families to be torn apart because we are allowing our families to be molded by the wisdom of the world.”

R.C. Sproul, in Bound for Glory

The home in the New Testament was the center of spiritual activity. Even a casual reading of the New Testament reveals that the home was a haven for prayer, healing, Biblical teaching, breaking of bread, hospitality, ministry to the sick, and happy, genuine relationships. In short, it was a place to display the truth, justice, mercy, and goodness of God.

Scott Brown, from the National Center for Family- Integrated Churches
