Psalm 115:1

Now for today’s article. The following are five errors about the Insurgence that I keep seeing. So I’m writing this article to refute them.


Error 1: All preachers and authors who preach “the gospel of the kingdom” mean the same thing by the phrase.

Pagan Christianity? by Frank Viola
"Riveting and Impactful!

I struggled for years with many of the practices that are found in Institutional Church and covered in this book. After reading this book I've learned why I've never been comfortable with them and never quite fit into the tr..." Read more of this review »

“In fact, I’ve met countless believers who have said, “The church is an organism, not an organization.” Yet as they formed those very words, they continued to be devout members of churches that were organized along the lines of General Motors and Microsoft.”
Frank Viola, Reimagining Church: Pursuing the Dream of Organic Christianity

“ORGANIC CHURCH
The term organic church does not refer to a particular model of church. (We believe that no perfect model exists.) Instead, we believe that the New Testament vision of church is organic. An organic church is a living, breathing, dynamic, mutually participatory, every-member-functioning, Christ-centered, communal expression of the body of Christ.”
Frank Viola, Pagan Christianity: Exposing the Roots of Our Church Practices

“What history teaches us is that men have never learned anything from it.” —G. W. F. Hegel, nineteenth-century German philosopher”
