Inside looking Outside.

There was a song we use to sing when I was a young fella that contained the phrase “I’d rather be on the inside looking out than to be on the outside looking in”...I wonder...is that because most institutional churches are organized to serve the interests of the insiders rather then interests of the outsiders?

Is not the way we do church prone to keeping the insiders in and the outsiders out, especially if those on the outside believes different than those on the inside?
Then again, nowadays I am even beginning to wonder if church is not designed to drive even some of the insiders out! Especially the insiders who want a genuine relationship with God through Jesus.

Is it that insiders have to become outsiders to find outside what they did not find inside because Who they want to find inside has moved outside or is so well hidden under religious trappings that there is to much difficulty in finding Him on the inside.
