What is your interpretation of the verse you referenced?

Mike Kirby said -
1 Tomothy 3:14-15

These things I write to you, though I hope to come to you shortly; but if I am delayed, I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

What is your point? Yes we are members of the Church. yes the Church is the pillar and ground of truth. Yes we are to conduct ourselves so as not to bring shame to the Church. But none of these ideas are related to the discussion or even the idea that it is the Church which is having its works tested in 1 Cor 3.
