Jesus stated two facts that make take the church from common place to something else. He proclaimed that His kingdom was not to be an earthy kingdom and that He expected His disciples to be in the world, but not of the world. John stated we are not to love the world. Too much of the world has infected the church and not enough church has influenced the world. I believe the Church was destined to become a society within a larger society today that would call individuals out of the darkness (world system), to a new light (righteousness) to maintain a new order (the Church) until Jesus returns. That would mean we are really called to recruit from the world, not join in with the world. To establish a community of Faith that co-exists in the natural world while maintaining a supernatural atmosphere of prayer, praise, and authority.
