(23) ... The "Undermining" Of The New Testament Church

The Pattern and Function of the Institutional Church System has greatly undermined Christ’s intended purpose for His Church,\ which is to function as a "Royal Priesthood" of Believers in Christ. In 1st Corinthians 14:26 the Apostle Paul clearly gives us the intended  Pattern that the Lord desires for the New Testament Church to operate and function in.

The very thing that the Institutional Church System highly esteems and puts a great deal of value on, an individual who has the title Pastor or Doctor in front of their name, and has obtained their Biblical study degree, is the very thing that has greatly undermined Christ’s intended purpose for His Church.

EACH and EVERY Christian has been given the privilege and right to function as part of the "ROYAL PRIESTHOOD" of Believers in Christ.

There are many Christians, especially those who have a great love for God's Written Word and immerse themselves into the Written Word and have a great deal of Spiritual insight. But in the Institutional Church System, even though they have the same Holy Spirit, because they do not have the title "Pastor" or "Doctor" in front of their name, almost always, (with most people) their words do not carry as much weight as from someone who has the title of "Pastor" or "Doctor" in front of their name.

Furthermore, most individuals with the title "Pastor" or "Doctor" in front of their name feel that they have more Spiritual insight than someone who does not have the title "Pastor" or "Doctor" in front of their name.

The very nature of having the title of "Pastor" or "Doctor" in front on their name SETS THE STAGE for them to have pre-eminence in the Church. This is the very thing that JESUS taught against.

Because of the pre-eminence of the "Rabbis" and "Doctors of the Law,"  JESUS dealt with the "Rabbis" and "Doctors of the Law" in a strict manner.

The biggest reason why America’s Christian TV networks have become a pathway for a number of False Prophets and False Teachers is because the Institutional Church System gives individuals who have the title of "Pastor" or "Doctor" in front of their name pre-eminence in the Church which makes it much easier for these individuals to gain access to the Christian airways and have a notable presence.

Therefore, having the title of "Pastor" or "Doctor" in front of one’s name HAS OPENED THE DOOR  for False Prophets and False Teachers to infiltrate with ease America’s Christian TV networks.

Instead of America’s Christian TV networks being a blessing, they have reached the point to where they are contributing greatly to a FALLING AWAY from the SOUND DOCTRINE of God's Written Word.

Christians have been held "captive" and "enslaved" by the System of the Institutional Church because it is this System that has so permeated and engulfed society.

The INFLUENCE of this System is SO POWERFUL that it does not even occur to most Christians to question whether or not if the Institutional Church System is really the Biblical pattern that Christ intended for the New Testament Church.

The Institutional Church System is what most Christians have been exposed to for most or all of their lives. Therefore, they find no reason to question it. The same holds true for false religions. Many, if not most people that are in a false religion System were born into it and raised in it. Therefore, they find no reason to question it.

Christians have been BLINDED by the Institutional Church System TO SUCH A DEGREE, that they do not understand their role in the "ROYAL PRIESTHOOD" of Believers in Christ and of how VITAL their role is to the health of the Body of Christ.
