Aldrich: caricatures of Christianity (III)

Thursday, March 5, 2015
Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
    or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers.
But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
    and on his law he meditates day and night.
    —Psalm 1:1-2 (NIV)
    “To become a Christian, I must go to church and get involved in lots of meetings.” This is the old “churchianity” caricature. Unfortunately, some of our churches perpetuate this idea by pushing a program which encourages a neurotic Christian activism. I shared with my neighbor that I wasn’t interested in lots of meetings, but that I did enjoy regular times of significant teaching and worship.
    ... Joseph C. Aldrich (1941-2009), Lifestyle Evangelism, Multnomah Press, 1981, p. 216 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 1:1-2; Eccl. 3:12-13; 12:12; Phil. 4:8; 1 Thess. 5:21; Heb. 10:25
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, restore the peace of Your presence to Your people.
