When Is A Church No Longer A Church?
“God sets the lonely in families….” Psalm 68: 6
“..for we are members of His Body.” Ephesians 5: 30
“…for the sake of His Body, which is the church.” Colossians 1: 24
Today’s blog post is going to be very short. The Lord gave me these words one night and then told me not to add or subtract anything. So here it is…..
The church becomes an institution instead of the living Body of Christ when it runs like a business instead of a family, when some members are elevated with titles, offices or positions, when someone starts making money by “serving” it, and when it desires tax exempt status from the state. The Institutional “church” system is wrong and perhaps at times even evil. When one follows traditions instead of the Spirit’s leading things go all to hell very quickly.
