How do you know that is the case here?

Matthew 7:16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

It seems to me that the building in which one worships is made more important that the worship itself. These buildings seem to be their 'fruits' and not the salvation of their flock.

Many more threads appear in this forum about the state of souls than about architecture.

IMHO, there can never be too many threads about the state of one's soul.

In Christ, Wiley

The article is about the building of a new cathedral. There’s going to be, therefore, lots of talk about the cathedral.

“These buildings seem to be their ‘fruits’ and not the salvation of their flock.”

What? The article is about the cathedral. Are you really going to say that means they have no other fruits? Are you serious?

“IMHO, there can never be too many threads about the state of one’s soul.”

So there can’t be threads about cathedrals? I guess we can’t talk about the Bible either? After all, that isn’t about the state of one’s soul now is it?
