Observations on Jesus as church builder
Jesus stunk at building a megachurch ministry.
Just read Mark 6:1-5.
Think about how He intensified the Law in Matthew 5-7.
How about the parables? These were spoken to keep people from seeing clearly. Jesus had to explain them to his own disciples.
How about calling religious people a brood of vipers? Or, whitewashed tombs, full of old bones.
Read John 6, especially from verse 51 – on. At verse 66, it states, ‘As a result of this many of His disciples withdrew and were not walking with Him anymore.’ Even his own disciples, (not the 12), walked away because of his teachings.
So much for seeker-sensitivity 😦
