Institutions are founded for a purpose, but they take on a life of their own, and seek to preserve themselves. Do you see my church as an institution? Its original purpose was to serve me, and so it continues to this day. Yet the ‘church’ of my own ethnic and cultural background was founded to serve God, but when I came along it turned out to be more interested in preserving itself and dealing with a perceived threat to itself. So I moved on. This is not meant as a criticism of the church, but the same principles still apply today. Is your church more eager to preserve itself or to follow me when I move on?
