As many of you are aware, I am a strong advocate of The Church, the ‘ekklesia.’ Though many have heard that word, surprisingly few are aware that it is NOT a religious term. Actually, it is a Greek word that means “the called out ones.” It referred to a forum of Roman men – a council – that the Roman Empire would send into any region that its armies had conquered so that they could teach their captives to become Roman citizens. Get that? Rather than crush their defeated foes, wipe them out, they allowed them to remain as farmers, blacksmiths, shopkeepers, etc. so that they could collect their taxes and assimilate them into Rome’s culture. Again, Rome’s goal was to make them Roman Citizens. The early Christians related to the Roman concept of ekklesia and saw the similarity of their mission. So, they adopted the term for themselves.
