Perhaps. But…

Perhaps Ephraim Radner is correct. Perhaps the Spirit has abandoned the Church.

But when He abandons Jerusalem, He always reappears with the exiles in Babylon (Ezek. 8-11); when He leaves the synagogue behind, He’s found in the Church. He always returns, somewhere. He always returns.

When He does, and where He does, the wilderness blossoms like a rose, parched land flows with springs, and dry bones come to life.

For God is not a God of the dead, but of the living – the God of the living again.

       -Peter Leithart, Against Christianity, p.143
