<DIV><FONT size=2>I have been considering the difference between a
"congregation" and a "church" (if any)? The hebrew words qahal or edah seems to
be translated by the word ekklesia in the LXX, which is often translated by the
english word congregation. I wonder if there is any difference. Perhaps
congregation is used to describe the local church and "church" sometimes used to
describe the universal church, but not always. Paul writes to the ekkesia but
most bible translations used the word "church".</FONT></DIV>
<DIV>Any comments?</DIV>
