I'm beginning to wonder what we realy mean when we claim to be Biblical. Are we speaking in respect of doctrine? Surely in regard to some of the subject matter under the banner of doctrine we tend to be more Biased than Biblical? What about other church and Christian issues? I came across a closed topic where the author asserted that to use any kind of musical instrument in church was wrong. He was both adamant and dogmatic with tons of scripture to prove it. And I have to ask myself, does he belong to a modern day church? Do they meet in a dedicated building...and is that Biblical? Do they have a sunday school...and is that biblical as well? What about all the other meetings we hold and pontify about, like prayer meetings and youth meetings and ladies meetings and men's fellowship meetings and old folks meetings and board meetings and annual general meetings and....well you get the picture. What about the structured fixed salaries with fringe benefits that we pay pastors and other "fulltime" workers...is it biblical? Do we have a biblical sanction for the way we run our public services or our missions and music policys? Oh and don't forget all those helpful extra programs like the "alpha course..." Formal Membership? A constitution? Para-church organisations? I wonder.... if the apostle Paul had to be miraculously beamed down to planet earth for a weeks stay, would he would have any trouble identifying and locating anything resembling what he knew to be the church...? Hmmmm. I think the truth is we need to be careful about what we claim is biblical and about preaching to others about "bibllical correctness" or their lack of it. So are you guys all biblical....????
