Who is ecclesia?
We are the church! Church is not the building or the denomination of a group of believer, no it is the congregation of people in Jesus Christ. It is simple, effective and the way God intended it when He send Jesus and the Holy Spirit to us here on earth.
People complicate the word of God in different ways and manners, in customs and rituals. It was never meant to be so complicated.
Ecclesia (or Ekklesia) in Christian theology means a particular body of faithful people that is in relation with the whole body of Christ Jesus, an assembly or community of members of the body of Christ. Jesus said in Matthew 18:16 ..."take with you one or two more, that 'by the mouth of two or three witnesses every word may be established". and in Matthew "Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by My Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered together in My name, I am there in the midst of them."
Two is enough
Mark 6:7 And He called the twelve to Himself, and began to send them out two by two, and gave them power over unclean spirits.
Revelation 11:3 And I will give power unto my two witnesses...
Ecclesiastes 4:9-12 Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour. For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together, then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone? And if one prevail against him, two shall withstand him; and a threefold cord is not quickly broken.
We are ragamuffins, believer in Jesus Christ, that stand at His door every day for grace, we are not perfect, and we are in need of His love and joy every second. This is not about me the author, or this ministry, this is about being servants for the Gospel of Jesus Christ.an the lost souls in this world?
Many a church proclaim His name but they burden the people with tithings, rituals and thing that is not of God but of this world, concepts that sound godly but is nothing but. Liberty, in philosophy, involves free will as contrasted with determinism. The Greek word 'eleutheria' is used by Jesus, Luke, Paul and James to name a few in the Bible, it means "Freedom, freedom from constraint, captivity, slavery or tyranny".
Generally, liberty is distinctly differentiated from freedom in that freedom is primarily, if not exclusively, the ability to do as one wills and what one has the power to do; whereas liberty concerns the absence of arbitrary restraints and takes into account the rights of all involved. As such, the exercise of liberty is subject to capability and limited by the rights of others.
Why do we contain ourselves then in religion churches and temples that promote more the wellbeing of the instituted rather than the lost souls in this world?
