While reading The House of the Lord, nestled on page 123 are the words The authority coming to the church ... will be to restore the local, citywide church.

This is an interesting concept.  Is it one that mirrors the New Testament pattern and practice?

How did we stray so far from what Jesus asked in John 17?  The first century church had it down pat.

The first century church met from house to house and had no church buildings for 400 years after Jesus ascended.

We, on the other hand, have buildings on corners in the City.  These buildings are not centers of ministry.  They tend to be empty most of the days of the week.

If Frangipane has it right, this will be an exciting time to be a Christian who worships as one body.  If he has it wrong, Jesus will not be happy to see the Church divided.
