"But in your hearts set apart Christ as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have. But do this with gentleness and respect, keeping a clear conscience, so that those who speak maliciously against your good behavior in Christ may be ashamed of their slander." ~ 1 Peter 3:15-16
Why church inked Buona Vista mega-property deal

Recently, it was mentioned in the news that "It thus makes economic sense to invest $280 million in developing its share of the 60-year lease Buona Vista site, which consists of an auditorium, an amphitheatre, an outdoor theatre, two ballrooms and a rooftop function area." This is the proposed building site for the New Creation Church, which draws alot of comments from the christian community and public at large.

Personally, I think it makes economic sense also for those who can count. However, my contention is that the foundational issue has not been addressed here, which is whether a special building for christian "worship" (and what really is worship?) is needed to begin with? The Scripture plainly states the obvious, that we believers (people) are the special mobile temples of God! This has an enormous impact on the outreach effort of the early christians in a paganized environment with varieties of temples and priests. So why the pressing question is, why do we deviate from the biblical principle?
