Church and Kingdom

...the church is not the kingdom, although the association between the two is close...the church is like the net, containing good fish and bad. The church is like the harvest field, weeds and wheat mixed together. The church is at present a 'mixed economy', and at the end of time the day of judgement will sort it out.

Michael Green, Matthew (Bible Speaks Today), p46
