Christ the foundation of the church

Peter evidently did not view himself as the rock on which Jesus would build his congregation, since he wrote at 1Pe 2:4-8 that Jesus was the long-foretold “foundation cornerstone,” chosen by God himself. Similarly, the apostle Paul referred to Jesus as the “foundation” and “the spiritual rock.” (1Co 3:11; 10:4). For every Christian or follower of Christ their church or community should have Jesus as their cornerstone and not as such one or another hierarchical religious organisation.

Possible arguments and proofs about the existence of God #2

The secular faithful believe that multiple wills shape our reality, but this time it’s not the wills of various gods. It’s the wills of various individuals, based on what they want, what they think is morally desirable, or whatever seems compassionate at the moment in a specific case. They make universal law based on idiosyncratic circumstance. Throughout history we find lots of great minds who throughout their life did everything to get people way from God trying to let them believe that god did not exist, but they themselves got a funeral in one of the main churches from Christendom, as to say to the world "you may now not believe any more in god, but I shall try to get an other life by letting myself buried the Christian way."
