Pastor Tommy Nelson talked about church discipline. Bob and I listened to the sermon online this morning.
I liked the analogy--or direct picture---not only are we ambassadors for Christ, but church---and by church, I mean the people, the assembly of Christians, not the building, are Heaven's Embassy. We look to Heaven for our rules, regulations, opinions, standards.
I need to hear the message again. Bob liked the fact that we stand for Heaven's Purity.
Pastor Mark Driscoll's message at Mars Hill was good this week, too. When explaining to teenagers, especially, why we don't have sex outside marriage--it is about dignity. human dignity. And to use and abuse people is to take away their dignity.
