I cancelled the article I was going to post today. It just didn’t seem right.
I feel we are at a crossroads. UCG is certainly at a crossroads, but even the United States and the rest of the world.
It makes me think of an interesting verse, one in which I’ve never quite settled what it means.
People have argued for centuries about who “he” is. The passage, as you probably know, is about the man who sets himself up as God. People even argue about who that is. But, there is someone or something that “lets”, or, as we would say, “prevents” that from occurring.
Is the Church part of that prevention? And, if so, then what if the Church it taken out of the way?
If UCG were to split, would that please God? Would that necessarily be a boon for other organizations, or could it actually negatively impact them as well? If it were to split, would that be due to God’s will or man’s stubbornness?
And, if the Church becomes scattered and loses power, what does that portend for the descendants of Israel?
Questions to meditate on, no?
