Beginning with a discussion of slavery in the Bible, Nick Batzig at the Reformation 21 blog ends up explaining Martin Lloyd-Jones’s views on the spirituality of the church. Here is part of his conclusion:

In these sermons, we find MLJ adopting what has sometimes been called a “spirituality doctrine of the church.” In his thinking, the best way to reconcile the totality of the biblical data on this subject was to insist that the mission of God for the church as the church is more narrow in scope than the mission of God for the Christian as an individual believer and citizen. The principles that MLJ applied to the issue of slavery in the 1st and 19th Centuries can be equally applied to the role of the church and the individual Christian regarding social injustices of our day.
