What Is the Problem with Organized Christianity?

What is the problem with organized Christianity?  Simple:  It removes Jesus Christ as the head.  That is, being organized by humans, it is not divinely led.

Christianity as presented in the Bible is about following Christ.  Organized Christianity is about follow people: denominations, pastors, bishops, popes, and what have you. 

If you want to experience true Christianity, repent of following people and follow Christ.  He sees you now.  He knows your every thought.  Trust in Him and let Him cleanse your conscience.  Take up your conscience and live morally – not for the approval of others but for His approval.  If you treat Him as Lord – that is, if you obey His commandments to live according to love – then you will experience true Christianity and the difference between this and organized Christianity will become thoroughly obvious to you.

Bible notes on this post.

The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ for those who want to hear about Him without having to join a church, organization, mailing list, or anything else other than Him.

  1. Heb 10:25 Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.

    1. You have lifted this verse out of its context and given it a meaning that it does not have. In the first place, there is no city you can name where Christians today are meeting together as the verse instructs – they are all meeting separately (there are over 30,000 different denominations not counting the nondenominational churches). Secondly, the day of the Lord that was approaching then has now come; we are to walk in the light of the Lord, not church. For more explanation see this post on Hebrews 10:25.

  2. Amen to this post.

    Apropos Heb 10:25, I’ve read your linked article and copied this:

    ‘At the very least, let us admit that Hebrews 10:25 is not a call to church attendance, but rather an indictment of our disobedience to the Lord who called us to be one.’

    Yep, very much agreed. I personally lost my problems with this verse when I read that this church meeting is a spiritual one, caused by Christ Spirit alone. IMHO we have access to the church by faith (Eph 3:12) through Jesus (Eph 2:18). Sounds a bit crazy but I try to translate one German expression for this ‘meeting’ literally into English:

    German: “Hinaufzusammenkunft”
    English: “upwards gathering” (i.e. towards Heaven)

    Since the Kingdom of God is not an earthly one, we can meet Him in the Spirit all the time, day and night, whenever and wherever through the Lord who is the Spirit. I would define this meeting as a meeting in His love by moving to the place where time is standing still.

    And now, just some additional thoughts on your posting above…

    I always thought I was doing fine
    With a collage of thoughts…
    Of Love Divine

    (Yes, I love to rhyme 🙂 )

    But thoughts are not enough
    Cause our life is tough
    Makes man mourn, snuff and cough.

    What we need is what you have said
    It’s Jesus Christ, our only Head.
    If we do see our Lord and follow
    Life can be great and not so hollow.

    The problem which is to be solved
    Get rid of human work involved
    In divine plans since there’s no place
    For self-will-managed-godless ways.
