Just a thought.

Does the church set the standard for the world or does the world set the standard for the church. Who is influencing who?
Is it a coincidence that the church is fighting to come out of empire, remove the control, let the underdog speak, let the big man on the stage give way to the person on the fringe whilst in the East the populace is calling for an end to tyranny, an end to the big guy with the control, to allow freedom to speak, to have an opinion or a interesting thought.
So where we have feared that the world is influencing the church and hidden away from it perhaps the world has only imitated where the church has gone astray in the past....maybe.


  1. I heard someone say once that in areas where the church is silent (ie. taking care of our environment, etc.) the world will seek an answer or method elsewhere. The church has ignored the issue of "one man with all the power" for far too many years.

    Another thought provoking blog- thanks!

  2. Thank you for sharing your wonderful blog regarding The church and the world.

  3. I found your blog through the friend of a friend of a friend. I think about this topic often...who is influencing who? A million thoughts. I have some here..., I just wrote a post on the 'Cliche American Christians.'

  4. The think the Church reflects the world and vice versa...and I don't think it should be that way at all! We have institutionalized the church so what do we expect? A sad state indeed
