But will God really dwell on earth? The heavens, even the highest heaven, cannot contain you. How much less this temple I have built.” ( 1Kings 8:27 )
「豈不知你們是神的殿神的靈住在你們裏頭麼。若有人毀壞神的殿神必毀壞那人。因為神的殿是聖的這殿就是你們。」                             (林前316-17
Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple
    and that God’s Spirit lives in you?...for God’s temple is sacred,
    and you are that temple.”     (1Corinthians 3:16-17)
「聖人」基督徒的名字; 不是「不」先生
Christians are ‘Saints’; not Mr. ‘Don’t’
「你們豈不知不義的人不能承受神的國麽。不要自欺 . 無論是淫亂的拜偶像的姦淫的作孌童的親男色的愉竊的貪婪的醉酒的辱駡的勒索的都不能承受神的國。你們中間也有人從前是這樣 . 但如今你們奉主耶穌基督的名並藉看我們神的靈已經洗淨成聖稱義了。」(林前 69-11

Don’t you know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters…will inherit the kingdom of God. And that is some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” (1Cor. 6:9-11)
「凡事我都可行但不都有益處。凡事我都可行但無論那一件我總不受他的轄制。」(林前 612

Everything is permissible for me”—but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible for me”—but I will not be mastered by anything.     (1Cor. 6:12)
Everything is permissible”—but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible”—but not everything is constructive. Nobody should seek his own good, but the good of others. (1Cor. 10:23-24)
The spiritual Journey of church members
他們有基督徒的背景但已離開教會不過還稱自己是基督徒 The ones who were clearly with Christian background but now walk away from church but still call themselves Christians.
    those who have left their Christian faith
    他們仍然留在教會忠心的作工但在那爭扎着要知道他們的 工作事奉是否還有價值和意義!
    These are church members who are still committed and stay in the church but are struggling mightily to find relevance.
Come, let us rebuild the wall of Jerusalem, and we will no longer be in disgrace.” (Neh. 2:17)
You also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices…”
要將身體獻上當作活祭是神所喜悅的你們如此事奉乃是理所當然的。(羅 121
Therefore I urge you, dear brother, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God—this is your spiritual act of worship.
教會是被揀選的族類是有君尊的祭司是聖潔的國度是屬神的子民。神揀選的目的是要叫我們宣揚那召我們出黑暗入奇妙光明者的美德。(彼前 29

But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. (1Peter2:9)

Come, let us build a church that is relevant to the world today
