Could it be that the eternal purpose of God was to move synogogue services from Saturday to Sunday, flip the leadership from Jewish to Gentile hands, and change the name from synagogue to church? What more can modern Christianity reasonably claim for itself?
The eternal purpose of God is found in Christ and the church is too busy focusing on itself to find Christ, much less the eternal purpose of God to be found in Him.
