Had an interesting discussion about church culture at my Bible study group tonight. Also discussed the question, “what would Jesus do if He came to our church?”
In Luke 4:16 it says, “He went to Nazareth … and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom”. From there Jesus went along with the procedures and practices of the synagogue. His sermon made them furious v.28 but there is no indication that He tried to change the pattern of what they did, but He did confront them over principles.
When I became a Christian I was so rapt to be saved that I would have accepted any type of church structure. I was just so thankful to be a child of God and part of God’s family.
