Gathering in Christ

Luke 12:49
I came to send fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!

If any human life can stand before God on its own basis, Calvary is much ado about nothing.  If it can be proved that rationalism is the basis of human life, then the New Testament is nonsense; instead of its being a revelation, it is a cunningly devised fable… If we can stand before God apart from Jesus Christ, we have proved that Calvary is not needed.  As soon as Jesus Christ comes in, He produces havoc because the whole world system is arrayed against His redemption.  It was the world system of His day, and particularly the religious system, that killed the Son of God.
