An Example Of Ecclesiological Hypertrophy?

Acts 2:41 and Acts 4:4 would be good examples of ecclesiological hypertrophy.

As Ron pointed out in his post, the principle for spiritual growth in the body of Christ is found in Ephesians 4:11-16. The key verses being vs. 15 & 16. We can only “grow up” into Christ when we “speak the truth in love” (vs. 15) and by the “effective working by which every part does its share” (vs. 16 – NKJV). The key word is the word “work” (vs. 12) and “working” (vs. 16). Note Nehemiah 4:6.

Bottom line: No work, no growth.

My Distance To Work?

When I was working full time for the El Paso School District, the drive to work was 17 miles one way. Since I’m now working as a substitute librarian, my driving distance can be any number of miles, depending on where the school is – usually not more than 20 miles one way.
