Interesting thought

"The Alamo was once a church [building], then a battlefield; and now, it is a museum." -- Daniel Sanchez, quoted in the Western Recorder 26 June 2007

fiction than fact surrounds the story of the Alamo. Is this suggesting that many churches will go the same route because of their fictional histories rather than the truth that is in Christ?

Jim, thanks for the comment. I have a few thoughts on the statement. But I'll refrain from posting for awhile in order to see how this thought might strike other readers.

Jim, since no one else has responded, I'll go ahead and give my take. I took it that Sanchez meant it as a point of how a church can go from an active living organism to a blip on the page of spiritual history.

Note to all: I added the [building] part because I don't recognize the building as a church. I'm sure Sanchez doesn't think the building is the church either. He was just making a quick point.
