Christianity is still fraught with pollutants. What our founder meant to be a spiritual and organic movement spreading from life to life has instead been an centralized, hierarchical and self-promoting institution developed by men and for men. This has been the case for so long that we have confused the pollutant with the real thing. It is hard to know what is good and healthy and what is not after two thousand years of counterfeit expressions.
days we have made great strides in realizing this and exposing the artificial
ingredients that have infected Christ’s body, but we still have a long way to
go. If we do not purify the people of God from the institutions of men that
keep them encased in artificial mechanisms, than we will never be able to see
transformation of neighborhoods and nations with the power of the Gospel. If we
continue to declare our own mechanisms as God’s way we will not only be
enslaved to a lesser form of spiritual life but we will greatly disappoint
those in the world that look on.
I have been asked a series of important questions leading up to the release of our new book Church Transfusion. I will post those questions with my answers in the following series. This was the first one.
