“If to do were as easy as to know what were good to do, chapels had been churches, and poor men’s cottages princes’ palaces. It is a good divine that follows his own instructions: I can easier teach twenty what were good to be done, than be one of the twenty to follow mine own teaching.”
~ William Shakespeare
The Merchant of Venice
What men call “the church” is an affront to God, a scourge laid about the backs of poor, trusting people, and a cottage industry for avaricious pretenders and their lust-clogged hearts.
The so-called “church” as we know it today is as far from being a legitimate, God-ordained entity as Barry Soetoro is from being a legitimate anything. It is what a general from Bush the Elder’s era called “a target-rich environment.”
The men and women who lead it are illegitimate. Its laws, used to bludgeon the faithful, are illegitimate. Its aims and methods are illegitimate. It is precisely the opposite of what it claims to be; its actions produce exactly the opposite results of what it claims to seek. The money poured into it by deluded and misled people is stolen, and the blessings it purports to bestow are curses.
The earthly “church” does not need a revival. It does not need a reformation. It does not need a house-cleaning. It does not need to repent.
The earthly “church” is a close cousin to a termite-infested house. A hammer and a torch are what’s needed.
We’re going to talk about this.
