Appropriate Behavior

“…in case I am delayed, I write so that you will know how one ought to conduct himself in the household of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and support of the truth.” (1 Timothy 3:15)

When our children go to the library, we expect their conduct to be appropriate.  Shouting, pushing, crying, and other wild behavior is not acceptable in a library environment.  Paul made it clear to Timothy that there is a proper type of conduct as the church and a proper way that individuals should behave within the church.

It is nonsense to accept the current cultural belief that how a church should act should be entirely dictated by the culture and the whims of the people.   Modern churches have placed total emphasis upon becoming what the people want and have stopped asking what God wants.  This is wrong and illogical.  After all, who is the church trying to worship – God or themselves?

There is a right way for a church to behave, and there is a wrong way, too.
