Can the church be destroyed? Can the church be razed?

If you suffer in any way, whether from a chronic illness, a physical condition, the aftermath of divorce, financial stress or poverty, can it keep you down?

As a Master teacher, Jesus taught at multiple levels, addressing groups of people in very different places in their lives. When Jesus said, "Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days", he was speaking at three levels: building, body and community of God.
For more on insights into how Jesus addresses you and I and the questions, "Can the church be razed?" and "Can a problem in life keep us down?",  listen to this week's sermon, The Razing or the Raising of the Church?, based on John 2:18-22.
