Good morning, happy Monday, and many blessings.
The scripture for today is Matthew 16:13-19. This is the first time the word church is used in the bible: Now I say to you that you are Peter (which means ‘rock’), and upon this rock I will build my church, and all the powers of hell will not conquer it.
There has been all kinds of debate and confusion about this passage. And as is typical when we can’t agree, there are usually lines drawn and things end in division.
