some insight from Red Letters

From Tom Davis, author of Red Letters...

"It seems our "church" has been formed and reformed and shaped and reshaped and cluttered to the point that is is practically unrecognizable. I wonder what the first-century Christians would say if they could see the church today? I have often wondered what today's church might look like stripped of all the excess. I don't mean to disparage church movements or the many good things that the church is doing, but I wonder how much digging it would take to find the church in its purest form- people whose love and compassion for God overflows into the lives of the most needy."

What do you think?
