A thought struck me today. I started (well have been and it came up again) thinking about when Jesus clears the temple.
Are we ever called to do this? Would it be right in today’s world? If we are to emulate Christ, then isn’t this part of working to maintain a healthy church? Or is this reserved only for the Son of Man?
As a side note:
Continuing to think about anger, even as a good thing.
Brian McLaren said (from Emergent 05) “One of the things anger tells us is that there is deep passion. You don’t get angry about things you don’t care about.”
I think this statement sums up why it may be perceived that I am “angry” at the church. Though in my mind, I care and love and am passionate about church, which for me boils down to frustration.
Please focus more on the upper statement if you are going to respond. The bottom statement is more informative and to put the upper statement in context.
