Salvation is in Christ, not the Church System
Understand your salvation is in Christ Jesus. It is not in the Church System. Jesus Christ is your mediator (your way to God), not The Church. Not the Superstar Leaders. HE is your way of salvation, not organized, man-led religious systems of Christianity. Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life, no one comes to the Father if not by Me.” and “I am the door, if anyone enters by Me, he shall be saved.”
The hard truth is, the Church System of Christianity is completely corrupted by pagan, new age, esoteric, occult infiltration. That means lots of lies, false teachings, spiritual abuse and pagan traditions. There is no cure, it can’t be fixed. It is a rotten, toxic place of confusion. Realize that you are the assembly,(“ekklesia”) that is, you are the called out people of God: you who are now in Christ’s flock, redeemed by Him.
It’s not about “going” to a physical place to meet with God. You meet with God within. In ancient times people went to the temple to worship God. Christ fulfilled all of that, and ended all of that. Now you are the temple. Christianity ironically continued that method of meeting with God, as a tradition. Constantine repurposed all of Rome’s pagan temples of worship to the Roman pantheon, as Church buildings. Now we have “stone temples” made by men on every street corner. Now “she” (Christianity) wants us to “come in to her.” Pagan Christianity always wants people to come “in” to her… but Christ calls people OUT of the pagan religions of the world, and gathers them unto Himself, as a Shepherd with His flock of sheep. In both the Old Testament and the New Testament, God says, “Come out of her, my people.” He’s calling His people out of Babylon.
But now He is where we worship; He is the place where we meet God. Now we are God’s temple because the Spirit of God dwells in us. So we communicate with Him and worship Him wherever we are and wherever we go. It is about “being” not “going” to a place. His life is now being lived through you, 24/7. He will lead you to gather in fellowship with other brothers and sisters in different places. You are not alone. You are part of His called out people, gathered and placed in His kingdom. You are part of the ONE flock that He has; the other sheep in His flock are all over the world.
You will find His people in various places and you will find that He has special work for everyone to do, to serve one another in love. In other words we all have different functions and special jobs to do. He gives His people spiritual gifts with which to serve. He guides everyone by His Spirit as to how He wants us to serve and help the others. Sometimes you will have fellowship (togetherness, communication, sharing life) with others. Sometimes you will feel lonely. But He Himself will always be with you and provide for your spiritual needs. He said to us, “I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
