Organized Christianity? It Depends on Who Is Doing the Organizing.

When people speak of organized religion or organized Christianity, they are almost always speaking about organization that is supplied by humans.  That is, there are pastors, or bishops, or a pope, or overseers, or any number of other titles for the church’s rulers or leaders.  This form of Christianity is disconnected from God.  It does not have God as its head.  Rather it has human beings as its heads.

 If, however, you speak of a Christianity organized by Christ, now then you are talking about something worthwhile…something directly connected to God. 

Jesus Christ sees and speaks to all humanity.  Those who respond to His call are noticed by Him.  He gives them more direction for their lives.  They listen to His voice and do His will.  You will find them doing good works to help people with pressing needs.  You will find them praising His name liberally.  You will find them bearing up while suffering persecution.  They love the Lord.  And they are organized by Him and Him alone.

Therefore, organized Christianity is acceptable to God…if it is organized by Him and not human beings.

The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in terms familiar to those who read the Bible, and to help others become more familiar with the Bible. For those unfamiliar with the Bible, look to the blog A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom .
