rocked my worldview re: the institutional church...do not read unless you are secure in your faith. I have since done follow-up research on Viola's case. Although I agree with much of where he thinks the Ekklesia should move, sometimes, I think, Viola throws the baby out with the bathwater. I still really liked this book but I highly recommend the reader do their own homework.

Nick Wisely put. Nothing wrong with homechurches. I like them myself. But these guys have missed the spirit of Christ somewhere along the way. Jesus makes room for all at his table. Come and eat...

All of us who would take on the responsibility of providing answers to questions regarding Christianity would do well to do our "homework" as you say. To that end, it's not enough to footnote every dang source in your pet library. You have to know the Lord, what his will is, and you have to be led by his Spirit. Everything else is carnally motivated and will do no good.

Yours in Christ, Nick
