Jesus Christ never started an institution called church. Church organizations are the creations of men. Jesus Christ CALLS us unto Himself to KNOW Him, to FOLLOW Him and to OBEY Him. If we turn from our wicked ways and from serving ourselves, our own sinful lusts and we FOLLOW and OBEY Jesus Christ, REPENT and are BAPTIZED IN WATER, in obedience to Him, then He gives His Holy Spirit to be IN and WITH us.
Jesus Christ is SPIRIT and the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of Christ. His Spirit dwells in those who follow Him and He HIMSELF guides them, They ARE the CHURCH, the BODY of Christ and Jesus Christ Himself is the HEAD. He is their TEACHER. He is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE and everyone who FOLLOWS and who OBEYS Him, who lives in obedience to HIS SPIRIT, they ARE the CHURCH, they ARE the BODY OF CHRIST.
Jesus Christ is not part of any institution. Nobody can serve two masters. You cannot serve, follow and obey Jesus and also serve a church organization. Either you follow Jesus every step of the way, every day of your life until the very end or you play church in which case you will end up in hell. We need to follow Jesus Christ. He alone is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE.
CHURCH IS A LIE. Jesus Christ is the TRUTH. Whom are you following? Are you following Jesus or are you following a lie? Follow Jesus until the very end and you will have LIFE. Jesus Christ is the ONLY WAY.
May Jesus bless you.
