A Challenge to the Church

"We have seen in the history of the church, 'the Israel of God,' has failed almost as grievously as Israel under the Old Covenant in living out God's righteousness. Though it has reached many of the Gentiles and led them into a form of godliness, it has only rarely displayed that measure of spiritual power which would offer compelling proof that Jesus is the Messiah. It remains for gentile churches to lay hold of the principles and the reality of his reign within history among his people."
