The power of the Church

Maybe one day this will become a reality to us!

“… it is inconceivable to regard Scripture as somehow separate from the church, with the interpretation of the Bible left to individual believers or scholars. The Bible is, first and foremost, the church’s book. Consequently, Scripture itself, throughout its pages, points us to the church as the living embodiment of the truth. The church, not Scripture, is “the pillar and foundation of the truth” (1 Tim. 3:15)… Scripture serves as the sacramental means to build the church; the church is not the sacramental means to build the Scripture. Thus, an authentically evangelical view should begin with the church as the primary object of evangelical resourcement.— Hans Boersma, Heavenly Participation: The Weaving of a Sacramental Tapestry
