Today’s blog connects with yesterday’s blog. The Church structure has hindered intimacy, bonding, relationships and the kind of love Jesus told us to have for each other. We cannot keep from being sinned against the rest of our lives. It is in this very context that we have the opportunity for growth and healing. It’d sure be great to see the Body of Christ be the Body, obeying all the “one anothers”. My concern is that while healing of the heart and mind is deeply needed, (because the Church is sick) and some in the Body of Christ seem particularly gifted for this ministry, that we wrongly perpetuate the psychological model (which is no friend to Christianity) of needing the “professionals”. Let us believe the truth that He has made us competent as ministers of the New Covenant and that if we lack wisdom, He will give it to us generously. He does want us to be whole and deeply connected with one another.
