God does not live in buildings made by men

This was a mighty building called a “Church” in Christchurch New Zealand. God destroyed it.

The tower of this claimed to be "Church" has fallen down on New Zealanders.

The Dean of Christchurch Cathedral says the partial destruction of the iconic building in today’s massive earthquake is unimportant in light of the great human cost the disaster will incur.

The Anglican cathedral in the heart of the city was largely destroyed in the 6.3 shake, the spire reduced to rubble and the roof caved in.

Some visitors might have been hit by the fallen stones.
Before God's wrath fell on this building, it looked like this.

Dean Peter Beck said there were visitors inside the building when the earthquake hit, and it could not be confirmed whether anyone was still trapped beneath the rubble.

My comment:

A Christian who says “Look at that beautiful Church” have misunderstood the gospel. The Cathedral in Christchurch do not look attractive any longer. It is correct to claim it was destroyed by the powers of God of the Bible.

The Bible says that “The Church” are a gathering of living stones. God does not live in man made buildings.

Acts 17:24
“The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands.

The building of God does not stand on Earth.

2 Corinthians 5:1
[ Awaiting the New Body ] For we know that if the earthly tent we live in is destroyed, we have a building from God, an eternal house in heaven, not built by human hands.

Before Jesus rose from the dead, the Temple of the Holy Spirit was the Temple in Jerusalem. This Temple was destroyed in 70 A.D. Today, the body of each believer of Jesus is the Temple of the Holy Spirit.

1 Corinthians 6:19
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;

  1. Men will go on deceiving and being deceived. . . . And don’t we see this even in the use of language? Fine. Though we strive to correct the lies, man will continue to build more.

    All God’s people long for a better place. A place where truth is supreme. For now, we live in this “Place of Testing”.

    By His Grace.

  2. Ever ask yourself where steeples even came from, yeah they came in part from Sir Christopher
    Wren’s building authority in London following the Great Fire of 1666. However it would be interesting to see where original towers came from: Check out this video about 10:30 into it: Babylon’s towers
