The body of Christ gathering in corona-times

First of all, we have traditionally argued strongly that the “church” (Matthew 16:18; 18:17; etc.) is nothing to do with buildings, structures and hierarchies.

Some modern translations appreciate this in Acts 2:47 where instead of “added to the church” (KJV) they say “added to their… Read More The body of Christ gathering in corona-times
