One thought on “Christianity as Community”

  1. In my experience, I’ve found that the root of a me-centered gospel and a focus on individualistic salvation seems to come about because of a lack of awareness about the overarching eternal purpose of God. People are not taught (at least I wasn’t for a long time) that God is after a bride, a house, a family, and a body first and foremost and that our purpose for existence is to form that. Our primary identity is as members, living stones, brothers and sisters and body parts. A focus on what we get out of God’s work rather than what He is after leads us down this individualistic road.
