And Since We’re Talking about the Church

Yesterday my wife pointed me to an excellent article written by Jeff Purswell titled “Don’t Go to Church?” Purswell serves as the Dean of the Sovereign Grace Pastor’s College. In his article, Purswell criticizes the false dichotomy between “being” the church and gathering as the church. I sometimes hear this type of thinking from some of my students who either were very involved in collegiate parachurch ministries or have been influenced by churches that embrace the very type of false dichotomy Purswell addresses in his article. Purswell offers a good word, and I hope you’ll take the time to read it.
