Agreed. In my view, the church "structure" isn't at fault as much as the
direction most churches have taken. That is, as Mr. Spencer noted, MOST
churches today DON'T follow the Scriptures....PERIOD!! And, it goes far
beyond just the well-known issues of abortion and queerdom. BTW, I just
met with a woman who is a Catholic and she quit the church because the
priest takes a liberal position on social issues, like Obamacare is
good. She knows better.

One of Marx's 10 "tenants" in his "Communist Manifesto," for those who
haven't read it, was to slowly take control of churches in the "west."
Marxists have followed the tenants in that book closely for a long time,
knowing that the changes they sought would take many, many years. Some,
like Joel Olsteen are simply incompetent hacks who preach "happy clappy"
lets all get along and compromise with everyone so no one feels that his
or her sin is a problem, and don't forget to leave your tithe plus in
the collection plate. Most mega churches are more about the money than
following Christ. If you talk about sin from the pulpit, some might not
contribute, ya know. 'Enough to make me wanna puke!!

The Marxists have ruined some denominations like Episcopal, and years
ago American Baptist. I could go on, but some of you already know well
what's been going on.
