Cancerous Growth

The Church is one of early disciples’ response to fellowshipping with each other, a completely different entity from the body of Christ, for which He is coming back. Gradually, the church establishment is becoming so great and widely reaching; unfortunately, it’s depth is daily sacrificed for it’s width and reach.  This depth is not developed…
