Paul's Passing Thoughts

Where Do Truth Lovers Go from Here in the Days of Noah?

PPT HandleSo, the cat is out of the bag. Our Protestant church culture is no different than Rome. Salvation is found in the Protestant caste institution and its supposed “power of the keys.” The Protestant church emperor has no clothes. Now we know why there is a church that can be seen from the highway every two miles with an average $500,000 annual budget: people will pay big money for salvation. These buildings are nothing more or less than Catholic temples.

If you get, if you realize that Christ is the only one who has authority over you and no one else, you are feeling pretty lonely, and wonder where we go from here.

We go to very exciting places, after all, for the first time in your Christian life you are free. The baggage of the institutional church is no longer on your shoulders. And in time, you will be joined by others. In fact, I have to believe that this will be a huge movement if it is truly a return to what Christ wants, and I think it is.

But be sure of this: this isn’t a half-pregnant home fellowship movement that is part home and part institution, this is ALL OUT.

And, just think about it: the Protestant monstrosity is only part of our mission field white unto harvest. And, our message is theological math that people can understand. Two literal different relationships between two literal written laws is NOT hard to understand. Protestants have to make “nomos” a realm and not a written law. This is NOT complicated.

Let’s face it, in the institutional church, evangelism has always been strained. Since I left the institutional church, evangelizing is like a mere natural flow for me. Also, the church does not dictate what I learn this week—I am totally free to learn anything from the Scriptures that God would show me.

Starting a loving assembly of Christ is easy. You are the pastor of your own home. Read Ephesians 5:25-33; where do you see elders in there? You don’t. Every Sunday, gather your family together, read the word and discuss it, have a meal together and recognize the Lord’s table, have prayer, and use your money to help people. Why are you placing yourselves under the authority of people who could care less about the priesthood Christ has assigned you to? Start there and support the movement—the rest will happen.

This is the way to go, and as Christian’s intentionally network together and work this all out, we will be living large in Christ. These are not only perilous times—they are very exciting times.
