Pop God Gets an Upgrade

By Nikomas Perez | Jul 18, 2021 at 11:00 AM

Bring Back the Grit

Bring Back the Altar

By Nikomas Perez | Jun 27, 2021 at 11:00 AM

In the early church there was an overwhelming culture of sacrifice. There was an assumption that the needy should be cared for, and it was our job to do so. It wasn’t the role of politicians or city policies. And they believed that what the Church could do together was more powerful than any one individual, could do. Ananias and Sapphire are an example of loving self above loving God and loving their neighbor. It’s easy to make a commitment to sacrifice, until you start to feel the sacrifice. Then we want to crawl off the altar, but still get the praise.
