As the title suggests, what I'm talking about is a remnant in our day and time.
I've seen this before. So and so church thinks they have some corner on the truth that all the other churches have missed. They declare themselves to be the remnant of only true believers and command everyone else to repent and join them. The whole thinks reeks with an arrogant and cult-like stench. It's a total turn off for me but it still begs the question: Is there a remnant? If so, what does that look like?
This is the attitude coming out of pockets in the organic/simple church movement today. Am I missing something? Is this the prevalent thinking of the movement? Has anyone else noticed this?
Don't gloss over this. This is a big deal. If you think you are part of some remnant please make your case in the comments or at least post a link to an article that best articulates your understanding. I think this is very dangerous ground to tread and I fear the subtle pride that is contained therein but I also recognize that I do not know it all and want to remain humble right now.
