I’m sure that many of you seen this quote already, but I like it. I know it arguably can be accused of being a bit too “Europe-North American”-centered (I mean, what happened to Asia, Africa, Latin America…), but that doesn’t diminish Priscilla Shirer’s very apt observation:

In the first century in Palestine Christianity was a community of believers. Then Christianity moved to Greece and became a philosophy. Then it moved to Rome and became an institution. Then it moved to Europe and became a culture. And then it moved to America and became a business. We need to get back to being a healthy, vibrant community of true followers of Jesus.
