When you look at the Church in America, the first thing you may hear is that they need to get it incorporated or that you need thousands or even millions of dollars to start a Church. This sounds much like an enterprise. According to George Barna, the American Church is paying 1.3 million dollars per baptized believer. It doesn’t sound much better than the government. Rick Joyner shares about a shift in the Church and how the pure expression of it is family. Father God gave His Son Jesus Christ, on behalf of His creation so that when we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, we become sons and daughters of God, family! How do we get back to family? One way to do this is to relate to God as our Father. Jesus shares how we can talk to His Father in Matthew 6:9-10, “‘Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.’” Another way to express the purity of the Church is to treat each other like family within your Church. Family is made up of brothers, sisters, mothers, and fathers. Also, we need to get rid of everything in the Church family that is not pure. When you do this then what you have is your authentic relationship with God, which is not your religion, and this is when the true Church arises.
