..."and a highway shall be there, and it shall be called the way of holiness; evil minded people shall not travel on it, but it shall be for those wayfarers who are traveling toward God. (Isaiah 35:8, adapted)

The Invisible Church: Indefectible

"What is in ruins? The invisible church,
composed of all Spirit-baptized persons, is
indefectible, it cannot be ruined;
against it "the gates of Hades shall not
prevail." The local assembly may indeed be
sadly ruined; but it can be restored,
as, by the grace of God, has been seen times
without number--at Corinth, for example.
The only other institution in question is
that agglomeration of sects that is called
"Christendom." But that is unrecognized by
the New Testament--it is not of God at
all: and that it is "in ruins" is no matter
for our regret.
... G. H. Lang (1874-1958
