Why do churches and the Bible have different standards? Both of men are they not?


How can we condemn churches because they are of man and yet cite the Bible for this, which is also of man. (both can be divinely inspired) Condemnation of all churches because they are man lead seems totally inconsistent with history. I choose to read and accept what Paul says. Does that make me contrary to what Jesus taught? I do not thinks so. I choose to listen to sermons and consider them, does that make me less a Christian?

    Are you saying that people should not gather together to worship? Or are you saying it is OK as long as they do not have a building? (not about leadership)

    If a "church" preaches that it is their way or the highway, I can get that. If they preach "our way or condemnation" I hit the highway. But I do not condemn all churches as some are upright and follow my thinking. That is just honesty.

    A very interesting answer. One worth reading at least twice and contemplating.
