Church Christianity is about professing allegiance to Christ but demonstrating allegiance to church.
The church wants your tithe. Jesus doesn’t want your tithe; He says give it to the poor. The church wants you to go their meetings, especially the one on Sunday morning. Jesus wants you to walk with Him, every minute of every day of your life.
Instead of presenting God as the Bible does, churches present a God who is distant and who makes only occasional interventions into human affairs. The apostles said that Jesus was coming again before their generation completely passed away; the church today says that in this the apostles were mistaken (Why then does the church think we should believe the apostles about anything else?). Jesus says we should live completely for Him; the churches say He only requires that we live partly for church (and don’t forget the tithes).
Jesus said that we must keep all the commandments of God; the churches barely teach what the commandments are anymore. Jesus said we must show preference to Him over all our closest family members; churches only ask that we try to bring our family members to church (Maybe they will tithe, too).
Churches have stripped Christianity of its most essential elements: unrestrained love for God first, and then our fellow human beings.
Repent of watered-down Christianity. Participate in undiluted Christianity: follow Christ!
