Shortest sentence in the bible is - Jesus wept. Not a lot of people know that.
John 11:35 - and very appropriate in this instance, along with Matthew 25:40 !
It's unlikely that Jesus, himself, would have been welcome in a church such as this. He certainly did not tolerate the self serving religious institutions of his day.
"Jesus hit his head on the table several times" sounds more appropriate.
Indeed. I find though that some online versions no longer have it set out like that.
I'm waiting for all these devout Christians get to Heaven and realize there was a TINY error in all those paintings of Jesus.
Like, they got the RACE wrong.
Not according to a FAUX News anchor
Am I the only one who finds the use of that teacher icon patronising?
If Christ was to manifest himself, today, the vast majority of self-proclaimed Christians would be in for a huge shock, methinks...
The Unity Truth Centers (spelled Centre in Canada, of course) are sometimes mistaken for Christian because they are sometimes referred to as churches
(as in the OP article). They do not hold to the distinctive Christian teachings, found in the Christian Bible and spelled out in the Apostolic,
Nicene, and Athanasian Creeds.
Here is a Unity Truth "Sacred Labyrinth"- a fitting symbol for a group that uses the religious buffet approach.

Here is the Winnipeg web site for the group
Since they do not follow Jesus as Lord, neither Biblical commands nor Jesus' own concern for the poor have the authority that they have for Christians.
So, I suppose a church is ONLY a church if they practice Christianity?
Very narrow view of other religions you have there, sir.
It can be used for other religion's buildings.
Feeling patronised yet?
As ALWAYS on KF, we have meandered off the OP.
Now answer my question.
It says that the food bank is "Causing social unrest in the church", Scholar. Are we to assume that the Unity church of Victoria is not full of
people "who follow Jesus as Lord and accept His teaching that He is the unique Son of God"?
Their website must be blatantly lying, then. I suggest you contact them to complain.
Here's their "Contact us" page:
Wonder what Jesus would say about a church who feels the poor and hungry it's food bank attracts TOO many people and stops because it's causing
"social unrest in the church."
Makes you wanna rethink the whole Loaves and Fishes story, doesn't it?
"I'm sorry, I gathered you here to hear a sermon. I said nothing about feeding you."
There should be a speech bubble attached to that statue saying
"You just don't get it, do you?"
Great idea, John. I suggest that that statement could well be correct given some of the bickering and arguing that goes on.
