A Key Difference

The church is a self-sacrificing. The institution is self-serving.

There can be no reconciliation of the two. The church thrives when it leaves the institution behind. When God's people follow God's plan for church life (instead of man's traditions) God is honored. God in turn honors this by doing amazing things.

I encourage you to depart the institution. Try to do so lovingly and charitably, but by all means do so. Although it may be painful in the short-term, the long terms rewards are worth it.

The institution cannot be reformed. It is bankrupt. Depart my friends. Move from the self-serving organization to the self-sacrificing organism. There will be no regrets.

I do not think that tradition is by the way side. It was the social revolution of the past Counterculture that defeated tradition; and now tradition is at a loss.
