Torah Study Reflection-Church vs. Community
Author and Teacher, K.A. Perkins, discusses the communal perspective of understanding the Torah. K.A. Perkins answers a question regarding what The Most High intended for establishing – a church or a community of believers. K.A. Perkins explores Matthew 16:18 and uncovers the meaning of “church” in this text. It does not refer to a building; instead, it refers to “a called out people”. This community was called out to represent The Most High and to serve each other K.A. Perkins examines how this picture of the community directly opposes the current model of the Christian Church that focus on making a profit and running a business for the sole benefit of the leader.
