To prepare for this time, I want to talk to you this morning about a marriage. No, not the one that the Stilley family has coming this Thursday! There is no shortage of conversation on that around our home already, and we are excited for our son and our new daughter-in-law as this wonderful day approaches. The marriage I have in mind is not my marriage or yours. Nor is it the institution of marriage, which seems to be moving in dishonorable and God-ignoring directions at every turn in our country. No this morning, I want to talk to you about Christ’s love for His bride, the Church. I want to speak to you about His devotion and sacrifice for what is, for Him, the unrivaled passion of His heart. And I want to argue that if the church means this much to Jesus, it ought to mean that much to you and me.

And one of the Church’s magazines altered a Carl Bloch painting of angels by removing their wings and adding cap sleeves to their dresses. After hearing these stories and others, I became increasingly frustrated. I think this project is absolutely defensible artistically and is not a reason for church discipline.

You’re packed like sardines close to people you’ve never met, and you really try not to touch them. And nobody talks either. You can’t look at anyone; in fact, you don’t look anywhere except up, watching the numbers light up. Have you ever noticed two people walking into an elevator talking, but once they enter the elevator they stop talking. Strange things go on in elevators.
Years ago, several crazy friends and I were about to step on an elevator. The door slid open. The thing was full of people who gave us that hey-you-guys-aren’t-gonna-try-to-get-in-are-you? My friend, Jimbo, was last. When he stepped aboard there wasn’t room enough for him to turn around. As the door slid shut behind him, he smiled big and said loudly, “You might have wondered why we called this meeting today!
It was the most amazing sight to watch. People actually began talking and relating to each other. In many respects that elevator is a microcosm of our world today:

Update From time-to-time, we receive email from Roman Catholics challenging our statement that their Church historically forbid its members access to the Bible. Hopefully, the article below should leave no question as to the nature and scope of the abuse. Scholars now will be able to study cases such as that of the astronomer Galileo, condemned by the Inquisition for claiming the earth revolved round the sun, and Giordano Bruno, a monk burnt for heresy in in Rome’s Campo dei Fiori square.
Vatican officials say the secret files, dating between and , will yield precious few juicy secrets — the Church officially rehabilitated Galileo in , for example. But the archives do contain some surprises. Opened on Thursday alongside the Inquisition archives was the infamous Index of Forbidden Books, which Roman Catholics were forbidden to read or possess on pain of excommunication.
They showed that even the Bible was once on the blacklist. Translations of the holy book ended up on the bonfires along with other “heretical” works because the Church, whose official language was Latin, was suspicious of allowing the faithful access to sacred texts without ecclesiastical guidance. Protestants, who split from Roman Catholics during the Reformation in the 16th and 17th centuries, were allowed to read holy works directly. The Index of Forbidden Books and all excommunications relating to it were officially abolished in [only 3 years prior to I becoming a Christian!
The Inquisition itself was established by Pope Gregory IX in as a special court to help curb the influence of heresy. It escalated as Church officials began to count on civil authorities to fine, imprison and even torture heretics. It reached its height in the 16th century to counter the Reformation.
