Ever-changing, Never-changing

Are you a Coca Cola or a Pepsi fan?  Everyone has their favourite.  And yet that favourite flavour is about to change.  According to recent reports, both Coca Cola and Pepsi are changing their ingredients to avoid having a cancer warning slapped on their cans.  Thus, the presentation on the outside will stay the same, but inside they will be different.  Do you think you will be able to tell the difference?

Here at Rock Baptist Church, we believe the Christian church is precisely the opposite.  We want to connect with contemporary culture, we want to be relevant.  The presentation on the outside is ever-changing because our society does not stand still.  But at the heart of our church, just as with all Christian churches across the world, lies an unchanging message of life in Jesus Christ presented in God’s unchanging Word.  The ingredients that make us who we are on the inside stay ever the same.

The Apostle Paul explains why the message of Jesus Christ must stay the same:

I want you to know, brothers, that the gospel I preached is not something that man made up.  I did not receive it from any man, nor was I taught it; rather, I received it by revelation from Jesus Christ. (Gal 1v11,12)
