The Accepted "Doing Church Thing" is Bibleless.


The modern church model is neither recorded, described or promoted as the local Church in the bible. The segregated  denominated local church buildings that are so cherished, where "people of like faith" are assembled for planned services, organized and officiated by men practicing programed ceremonial tradition, is not biblical. It is abiblical...that is, such an organizational entity is not addressed in the bible.

W. Tozer said and I quote:
"We are in an age of religious complexity. The simplicity which is in Christ is rarely found among us. In its stead are programs, methods, organizations, and a world of nervous activities which occupy time and attention but can never satisfy the longing of the heart." 
End quote.

When life in Christ is replaced by programmed-event-driven showmanship and ritual, when we lose the authority of personally knowing Jesus the Living Word and rely on the authority of a book about the Living Word, or institutions and leaders, when we let form and ritual interpose between us and Christ living His life through us, we lose the very reality of relationship with the living God.
