Question: “How is the Church the Body of Christ?”

John 2:18

The Jews, therefore, answered, and said to him: What sign dost thou shew unto us, seeing thou dost these things?

The following scripture states that our Lord referred to the church as his body and his body would resurrect if destroyed:

John 2:19

“Jesus answered, and said to them: Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up.”

And the Bible tells us later in the scriptures that our Lord was crucified and he then resurrected in 3 days. JonAk

Another Answer: The phrase “the Body of Christ” is a common New Testament metaphor for the Church (all those who are truly saved). The Church is called “one body in Christ” in Romans 12:5, “one body” in 1 Corinthians 10:17, “the body of Christ” in 1 Corinthians 12:27 and Ephesians 4:12, and “the body” in Hebrews 13:3. The Church is clearly equated with “the body” of Christ in Ephesians 5:23 and Colossians 1:24.

When Christ entered our world, He took on a physical body “prepared” for Him (Hebrews 10:5; Philippians 2:7). Through His physical body, Jesus demonstrated the love of God clearly, tangibly, and… More


You may have been born in church, baptized in church, served in church, could have married in church, maybe even died in church and still end up in hell, because you were only in the church and not in Christ!
It is necessary to be born again, take up the cross and follow Jesus. Many have religion, but have no relationship with God.


People are falling into the World because they were bedazzled by the things of the world and in the world, and by continually accepting the deception as truth, darkness and loss led them into the state and gates of pure Hell.

Many believe that there is no Hell. They need only to wake up to the precursors of Hell that can be seen and witnessed thru life’s daily trials, pain, trouble and ongoing pressing hardships


(1) Hell was designed originally for Satan and his demons (Matthew 25:41Revelation 20:10).

(2) Hell will also punish the sin of those who reject Christ (Matthew 13:41,50Revelation 20:11-15; 21:8).

(3) Hell is conscious torment.

  • Matthew 13:50 “furnace of fire…weeping and gnashing of teeth” 
  • Mark 9:48 “where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched” 
  • Revelation 14:10 “he will be tormented with fire and brimstone”

  2. I believe that all scripture was written by human beings who unwittingly created God’s nature in their own fallible, often angry and vengeful image – especially the part insisting, via publicized protest pickets, that God hates or condemns this or that group of people. I have found that too many of today’s monotheists believe and/or vocally behave likewise.

    Maybe the general need by humans for retributive justice is intrinsically linked to the same terribly flawed aspect of humankind, which enables the most horrible acts of violent cruelty to readily occur on this planet, perhaps not all of which we learn about.

    All of this doesn’t mean there are no spiritual truths, lessons and discoveries to/with such theism, however.

    For example, what if the Almighty actually doesn’t need or desire to be worshipped? Also, maybe ‘houses of worship’ are meant for the parishioners, divinely intended to be for the soul what health clinics/spas, even hospitals, are for the body and mind. And perhaps the Ten Commandments were/are not meant to obey in order to appease/please God but rather, intended for His human creation’s benefit, to keep people safe and healthy.

    Having said that, maybe animal-slaughtering and -eating is as bad for one’s spirit as it can be for one’s body, and likely the planet. Much, if not most, of the plentiful violence committed by humankind is against God’s animals, their blood literally shed and bodies eaten in mind-boggling quantities by people.

    That fact even leaves me wondering whether the metaphorical forbidden fruit of Eden eaten by Adam and Eve was actually God’s four-legged creation.

    I’m not vegetarian, but I can still see that really angering the Almighty — a lot more than the couple’s eating non-sentient, non-living, non-bloodied fruit. I’ve yet to hear a monotheist speak out against what has collectively been done to animals for so long.

    1. Some are chosen by God and many divine appearances and guidance have been given to the chosen throughout the history of man. The Bible scriptures states: Matthew 22:14 “For many are called, but few are chosen”. We should all be able to look around and acknowledge the divine order before us. We should all be able too look within ourselves and believe that an inherited fall did happen, especially when we align our worldly nature analytically with biblical events. There is a greater power and man is not the power. God will return soon and mysteries about the fall of man will be resolved. Never discount God’s biblical prophets and God’s unheard of supernatural works through them. Peace, love and blessings to you.
