“What normally passes for Christianity is a religion that does not really require us to follow Christ.
“We can be a part of churchianity and still pursue unfettered materialism. We can be part of churchianity and not turn the other cheek, not help the poor, not be humble, not love our neighbor, brother and enemy, not die to self daily. Heck, we can even claim to be Christian and fight battles for the fallen kingdoms of this wicked world system and kill another human being.
“But as long as you join an organization, attend regularly and give them their expected proper membership dues, they will consider you to be a Christian.
“Some people have told me that they are praying that I come back to ‘the church.’ The fact is: I never left The Church. I’m an eternal life member. I left the building to follow Christ.”
