Two Weighty Questions
Someone tossed a two part question my way this morning; What is the mission of the Church and what is the greatest hindrance to that mission? My "short answer" part one is to glorify the Almighty through:
The Proclamation of His word
The Administration of His Sacraments
The Equipping of His Saints
My short answer to part two is we (I) are/am the greatest hindrance to this mission.
I'd like to, over the next day or so, provide a "long answer" in support of these propositions.
